    Cricket Budget Draft

    A random idea I had:

    Basically, it's a standard all-time draft but each team has a budget of :

    500 Test caps
    30000 Test runs
    1000 Test wickets.

    To allow some flexibilityy and variation between teams in any round of the draft, prior to making your pick, you may elect to 'exchange' 100 wickets for 3000 runs or vice versa.
    So you may adjust your budget to 27000 runs and 1100 wickets or 33000 runs and 900 wickets.
    This may only be done once and is irreversible.

    I apologise in advance if this ends up horribly. As I said it's a random idea and I've not put masses of thought into whether the budgets work or not but they should be roughly ok.
    Half a team of Warwick Armstrongs and half a team of Trevor Goddards gets you pretty close.

    Register interest below as usual.
    No Bradman. 18 hour pick limit.

    You can talk, ****.

    And lets be honest, with Marcuss running it this draft won't make it till a round two

    The Smudge XI is in
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
