    The Richie Benaud Tribute Draft

    In this draft you can select players that meet the following criteria:

    * Played with or against Richie Benaud in test match cricket, or played test cricket after Benaud's test career ended (and the likelihood is Benaud commentated on them). Idea is we get a sense of how much scope his career/s had.

    Rules

    - Just a simple, straightforward draft. Based on test cricket.
    - Order will be randomized for each odd numbered round, and reversed for the even numbered round following.
    - 8 hours between selections.

    Will do the entire order prior to commencement.

    Ok
    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
    - Benaud

    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)
