Thought I'd make a new topic so it's neat and tidy and visible to everyone. I think it was clearly established in the sign up topic the rules, but just in case:
Rules, which I think are the standard for these things(remember I'm new!)
*Each XI must consist of players from 11 different countries. The 10 test playing nations must be represented plus anybody from any associate nation for the 11th option.
*For players who's nationality is up for debate, use common sense. Whichever country they represented most at International level will be their eligible country. Morgan is English, Joyce is Irish, Cooper is Dutch for the sake of this draft.
*Minimum 20 ODI matches played
*Once a player from a country has been chosen during round, that country is locked until the next round. Associates count as one nation eg- Picking an Irishman locks up Kenya too. This is based on the majority decision. Sorry to the poster who objected to this idea.
*12 hours to pick before the next person gets a shot. Because of timezones and stuff and the fact I didn't give a starting time, I'll give the very first choice of round 1 twenty four hours in case he/she is in bed right now and doesn't see this in time. But from then on, it's 12 hours.
*For fairness sake, only the first round is randomised. Then it's a "rolling order" so everyone gets a go at 1st choice and everyone a go at last choice.
I used a list randomiser to make the order. 11 names were written up and this is what random.org spat back at me.
Round 1 order:
