Standard 12 hours per person, though Camo gets as much time as he needs.
No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?
There is no doubt in my mind that Viv would've been the greatest 20/20 batsman of all time. Was the greatest in ODIs imo.
The fun of this draft is speculating which players from bygone eras would've been great LO players (without being **** at tests). I like that.
Yeah, I have no problem with that thinking for the purposes of the draft. I just wanted it clarified so we don't get watsoned at the end
Simpson^ | Hayden | Bradman | Chappell^ | Ponting | Border* | Gilchrist+ | Davidson3 | Warne4^ | Lillee1 | McGrath2
Greenidge | Hunte | Richards^ | Headley* | Lara^ | Sobers5^ | Walcott+ | Marshall1 | Ambrose2 | Holding3 | Garner4
Richards^ | Smith*^ | Amla | Pollock | Kallis5^ | Nourse | Cameron+ | Procter3 | Steyn1 | Tayfield4 | Donald2
Hobbs | Hutton*^ | Hammond^ | Compton | Barrington | Botham5^ | Knott | Trueman1 | Laker4 | Larwood2 | Barnes3
I know that Bradman is up for grabs, and Camo999 rightly or wrongly didn't pick him, but I think that most people would assume him to be completely brilliant in any format you care to mention. Basically, whoever gets Bradman will probably win reasonably easily. Rethink??

Wasim Akram is a gun pick. In a t20 would an outrageously high average matter as much as an amazing strike rate? I am not sure.
Well I thought Camo would make this decision for me because in this draft it is actually worth thinking about but if he is allowed then it has to be Don Bradman.
Wasim is actually a brilliant pick, and deserving of No. 1 in this draft.
Basically limited overs formats negate what made Bradman great (the ability to bat for ages and concentrate and make monster scores).
Given all formats am more than happy with Wasim. Reckon he'd be much more valuable in T20 when the match is often decided by the guy who can come in and hit 20 off an over or snare 2 or 3 quick wickets when it's in the balance. With 10 wickets to burn in 20 overs I don't reckon Bradman would be any more valuable than any other top bat. Wasim, on the other hand is probably the best limited overs bowler ever and a brutal striker of the ball - I see he even played a few T20s at the end of his career with some success.
Fred Spofforth, 'The Demon Speaks'The figures Sir Home Hordon has shown me of what Grace did in matches against me, 37 innings, 1042 runs, 28.16 average, considerably less than his general average, hears out my theory that I never had any particular difficulty in getting him out. I clean bowled him seven times, ACM Croome says that WG told him that on any wicket he never knew when I should bowl him. This may have been due in part to my artfulness......
I don't often get to pick Sobers in a draft, so I think I'll take this opportunity.
Sir Garfield Sobers for me.
