    All Formats Draft

    The CW Cricket Council has noticed an astonishing lack of funds, which have been allegedly spent on a combination of after-parties and necromancy. While bringing back past cricketers for exhibition Test series has had something for the purists, we are now in situation barely above panhandling - that is, we'll need some limited overs tournaments as well.

    The good news is, all cricketers of yesteryear are available, including such players as DG Bradman (b 27 August 1908 in Cootamundra) and DH Fearn (b 26 June 1928 in Sheffield). The bad news is the ongoing finance issues allows a maximum squad of 12 to play in all three formats, giving team managers the say in whether either of these luminaries befit all their sides.

    In brief:

    Draft a squad of 12, then post up a line for the five-day, one-day and twenty-over side. Naming your franchise at some point is expected. A voting thread will ask people to vote for three sides, the one that's best in each format. The winner is whoever gets the most votes in total.

    Teams:

    1. Howe_zat
    2. Pothas
    3. Camo999
    4. Watson
    5. harsh.ag
    6. Monk
    7. Blakus

    Will pass on it. Not confident of doing a good job in this format. Will be fun to follow.

    Do we go with the assumption that Viv would (arguably) have been a better T20 player than Hussey or get penalised for picking players that have no proven record in a format?

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Well so will you said Ethel in a snappy tone and she ran out of the room with a very superier run throwing out her legs behind and her arms swinging in rithum.
    Well said the owner of the house she has a most idiotick run.'

    Voter's prerogative. I'd go ahead and extrapolate on Viv's record and repuation when voting but I know someone like Cribb wouldn't.

    I'll start this when we get to 12 drafters, and then anyone else who joins in can go on the end of round 1.
