    DRAFT Thread October 2013 - Tonight!

    Thought maybe I should try my hand at conducting a draft, as I enjoy participating in them. This is my first time, and I hope it will be worth it. Here are the rules:



    - Firstly, four players must be chosen who each satisfy one of four clauses that I will be providing as the first four rounds begin. (Should I give the clauses now, or wait for the rounds to start, as I though earlier?)

    - Then, four players must be chosen from mystery boxes, which I will device.

    - The last three players will be left to choice.

    I am looking for 5 participants only. Randomized order after every two rounds, as usual. Each person will have seven minutes to make his selection. The draft, like the one conducted by Monk, will aspire to be a very quick one. So, the people who are interested must have some free time. I personally would like to conduct it tonight at 11 pm Indian Standard Time (GMT+5.30, right now it is 4 pm here), but am open to suggestions from participants.

    Hope enough people are interested. Do join And I hope you enjoy it.

    I'm guessing that's about 4.30am here, but I might get up for that. Sounds good, I'm interested in having a go

    I probably would have joined if it was now or within the next few minutes, but definitely can't make it at 4:30am.

    It's back to the OP time due to the phenomenal lack of interest

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Let me try to make it more interesting. The first clause is:

    - A player who took more than 30% of his test wickets from the tail (8-11) as a fast bowler, and between 32.6-37% as a spinner.

    Well, not enough people interested means I have to postpone this draft. Hope a few come by tomorrow.

    These are the first two clauses of the draft:

    1) A player who took more than 30% of his test wickets from the tail (8-11) as a pace bowler, and between 32.6-37% as a spinner

    2) A player who was the right-handed partner in a left-right opening partnership (Qualification - The pair must have scored at least 1500 runs as an opening partnership)
