    ICC Best-Ever Test Championship Rating Draft

    ICC Best-Ever Test Championship Rating Draft

    The Draft is quite simple;

    1. Select XI players from the ICC all-time Test Championship Rating list. The easiest way to locate a player and their highest rating is to use the 'Compare Players' option under 'Mens Test Statistics' (second link);

    Reliance ICC Player Rankings
    Reliance ICC Player Rankings

    2. Your Total Budget is 7370 rating points (an average of 670 per player). I am hoping that this Total will allow people to select some of their favourite ATGs, but at the same time force the selection of some lesser known players so that the Draft creates some interesting teams.

    3. The cost for each player will be whatever happens to be their highest ever rating in either the batting, bowling, or All-Rounder categories. Please note that there is no category specific to wicket-keeping. If a player like Clive Rice has a rating of zero for both batting and bowling, and therefore doesn't have a proper rating, then you can't select him;

    Example 1: Ian Botham
    Batting Rating = 811 points
    Bowling Rating = 911 points
    All-Rounder = 646 points

    Therefore, Ian Botham will cost you 911 rating points should you select him.

    Example 2: Adam Gilchrist
    Batting Rating = 874 points
    Bowling Rating = 0 points
    All-Rounder = 0 points

    Therefore, Adam Gilchrist will cost you 874 rating points should you select him.

    4. NO Bradman

    5. The order for Round 1 will be randomised, and then the order will be reversed for Round 2.....and so forth. The order for all 11 Rounds will be posted at the beginning of the Draft so you can plan ahead.

    6. You have 12 hours to select your player. If you miss 3 consecutive Rounds then it will be assumed that you have quit the game and cannot rejoin. Feel free to PM a fellow Drafter to post your pick for you if you think that you won't be around your PC during your turn.

    7. When everyone has finalised their team there will be the usual voting thread where CWers will be asked to vote for their 3 favourite and strongest teams.

    For the people who join up - Good luck selecting your strongest Test team, and staying within budget!

    'This draft is quite simple'

    It is more than complicated enough to pique my interest so I'm in. Will attempt to read the rules shortly
