    Test cricket draft: 1877-1938

    Dust off your statsgurus and Neville Cardus anecdotes, because we'll be facing the least-appreciated of all Test cricketers.

    No restrictions of entry apart from taking the field in a Test match at least once between 1877 and 1938. Hutton, Grace et al. are all eligible despite playing relatively ****-all Tests in the period.

    Will kick things off once we have at least ten draftees or midnight AEST, whichever comes first. Initial order is first come, first served.

    Bonus option:

    Bradman is the obvious elephant in the room. Consequently, you may choose to have Bradman in your XI (if it's your turn in the first round) but in doing so you will be last to pick in ALL successive rounds.

    Not in, but I think that the "Bradman = last pick in all other rounds" rule is really good.
    Or something.

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1/11/1990 - 15/4/2006

    Should we take FC cricket into consideration as well? Given that for much of the period the County Championship was of nearly equal stature to Test cricket.
