    Fortunately, tonight is a reminder that older people and older players have the opportunity to applaud all the good things done by the modern-day players their ability to play outstanding attacking cricket, their flair and inspiration and innovation; and its a reminder also, in a quiet way, to the modern-day players that good things have happened before, that in every era there have always been cricketers who have served the game well and have loved it, and wanted to see it flourish

    But yes, I prefer Drafts to be fast and smooth. But then again, who doesn't prefer things fast and smooth?

    I am going with Graeme Pollock - One of the most accomplished, attacking "see-the-ball-hit-the-ball" batsmen ever. He held the record for the highest List A score of 222 from 1974-2002. At the age of 50, in 1994/95 playing in a memorial one-day game for the World XI vs Bradman XI, he scored 89 off 71 deliveries. Slots in at number 4.

    After looking at 37 Drafts In recent years it is apparent that Blakus has been the unoffocial 'Draft King' of Crickweb with 5 wins all up. His nearest rival is Pothas with 4 wins.

    So far in this Draft Blakus has selected Bradman and SF Barnes, while Pothas has selected Sobers and Dhoni, making them about even.

    No pressure

    Torn between two picks here, but arguably the first facilitates the second so I'll grab Mike Procter please.

    21k runs at 36 in FC cricket stack up favourably with many a Test #7, or makes him a seriously gun #8, while he took 1400 wickets at less than 20 each.

    Regarded as a very quick scorer in List A cricket, and had an economy rate of just over 3, which is impressive even considering the era in which he played. His unorthodox bowling would apply very well to T20 IMO. Like a far, far better version of Sohail Tanvir.

    I'm honestly very surprised that one of the very best all format cricketers of recent times hasn't been picked yet. Don't know whether people don't rate him as highly as I do or he's just slipped under the radar in this thread somehow but he'd have been one of my early picks, maybe second. Actually performed and proved himself in all three formats, so deserves a pick over some of the old timers who might or might not have succeeded in the shorter format.

    This is such a troll post in a draft thread.

    In fairness though, I've got about 3 guys I'm definitely looking at who fit that bill, but felt Procter was a more pressing selection on team balance grounds.

    Yeah pretty poor post now I think about it. Didn't know how else to put it though, obviously can't name him. Should've just participated in the draft

    Agree, think i know who you're talking about here. If only my pick wasn't so far away, gutted how pretty much every player i was after this round is already gone.
