    Old time cricket draft with a twist

    Hi all,

    With the 2015 World Cup well underway, I was wondering if anyone out there might be interested in participating in a draft that has nothing to do with the current World Cup.

    I propose an old-time cricketers draft with a twist; here are the rules.

    - Cricketers who played Test cricket for either Australia or England are ineligible for selection.

    - Cricketers available are those who played Test cricket for either South Africa, West Indies, India or New Zealand & made their Test debut BEFORE the 1st of January 1950.

    - Cricketers who played Test cricket for two countries are fine, as long as they made their Test debut for either South Africa, West Indies, India or New Zealand before the cut-off date.

    - Selected cricketersí entire career performance will be considered; not just up until the cut-off date. Furthermore, this includes performances in First Class & League cricket.

    - Order of selection will be determined by a random number generator; subsequently the following round will feature the same order, but reversed. After the opening two rounds, this process will repeat itself. There will be 11 selection rounds.

    - Players must make their selection within 12 hours of the preceding playerís selection otherwise they will be timed out. If a player is timed out they can still make a selection whenever possible but are not allowed to select any cricketer already taken.

    - The finalised teams will be put to a vote to decide the winner.

    Any takers? Iím hoping to get between 6 & 8 players. However, if more people than that express interest Iíll be happy to include them, but be warned, if this is the case then selections might get a bit slim towards the end.

    Can we have players that didn't play Tests?

    Unfortunately no. Eligible cricketers must have played a Test for one of these four teams. It would be nice to include players from say, Philadelphia, but if we did so then the door would open for English county or Australian state cricketers. This draft is focussed on the non-powerhouse teams of the era.

    Ok cool, getting close to the ideal amount of players. Will keep entries open for a few more hours before we begin the first round.

    We’ve got a good amount of interest here; eight players ready to go.

    Before we start I would like to announce that I am going to move the cut-off date slightly forward. The new cut-off date is the 1st of January, 1953. All cricketers who are selected must have made their Test match debut BEFORE this date.

    This change also means that cricketers from the 1952 Pakistan team are available for selection.

    Considering that we will be drafting 88 cricketers from this era I believe a larger timespan is needed, especially if we have anyone else wanting to participate.

    As a final rule, anyone who wishes to join in the game from now on will be placed LAST in line for the opening two rounds. After the completion of round one, no more entrants will be accepted. Please make sure you are familiar with these rules.

    Without further hesitation, with help from the RNG, here is how the opening two rounds will proceed:

    ROUND 1
    Howe_zat
    jimmy101
    Michaelf7777777
    bagapath
    GirtBySea
    AndyZaltzHair
    fredfertang
    Zinzan

    ROUND 2
    Zinzan
    fredfertang
    AndyZaltzHair
    GirtBySea
    bagapath
    Michaelf7777777
    jimmy101
    Howe_zat

    Good luck everyone. Over to you Howe_zat…

    In the traditional way of CW drafts I assume (the black) Bradman is not available?
