    The Best of Each Decade Birthday DRAFT

    The Best of Each Decade Birthday Draft

    The idea is to select 12 players, one from each decade. To stop arguments about whether Hobbs was a pre-War batsman, or a batsman from the 1920s, we'll be going by each player's Birthday. The cut-off Birthday dates for each decade are as follows;

    >=1980s - After 31/12/1979
    1970s - 01/01/1970 to 31/12/1979
    1960s - 01/01/1960 to 31/12/1969
    1950s - 01/01/1950 to 31/12/1959
    1940s - 01/01/1940 to 31/12/1949
    1930s - 01/01/1930 to 31/12/1939
    1920s - 01/01/1920 to 31/12/1929
    1910s - 01/01/1910 to 31/12/1919
    1900s - 01/01/1900 to 31/12/1909
    1890s - 01/01/1890 to 31/12/1899
    1880s - 01/01/1880 to 31/12/1889
    <=1870s - Before 01/01/1880

    An example of a team, should you be so lucky, would be;

    01. Jack Hobbs (1882) - 1880s
    02. Herbert Sutcliffe (1894) - 1890s
    03. Walter Hammond (1903) - 1900s
    04. Greg Chappell (1948) - 1940s
    05. Stan McCabe (1910) - 1910s
    06. Garry Sobers (1936) - 1930s
    07. Adam Gilchrist (1971) - 1970s
    08. Malcolm Marshall (1958) - 1950s
    09. Hugh Trumble (1867) <=1870s
    10. Allan Donald (1966) - 1960s
    11. Dale Steyn (1983) - >=1980s
    12th. Arthur Morris (1922) -1920s

    Each participant has 12 hours to pick their player for the Round. The odd numbered Rounds will be randomised, and the corresponding even Rounds will be in reverse order.

    If a participant misses 2 consecutive Rounds then the next participant in the order can make their pick straight away without waiting the 12 hours. If a participant misses 3 consecutive Rounds then they will be assumed to be unavailable and cannot return to the game.

    As usual, NO Bradman.

    Feel free to join in. Anyone one play, but it's first come first served, so be quick. It would be nice to get 10 to 14 participants.

    (If you don't think that the cut-offs for each decade are quite right then please let me know before we start)

    Cheers - Watson

    Might wait a bit no longer to see whether Monk, or a few others want to join in, even though 9 is a good number.
