    ATG 'Mixed Nations' ODI XI - Draft

    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:


    NZTailender
    Coronis
    Walkingwicket
    AndyZaltHair
    morgieb
    schearzie
    Zinzan
    Red Hill
    King Kallis

    Overrated Sanity
    NZTailender
    Coronis
    Walkingwicket
    AndyZaltHair
    morgieb
    schearzie
    Zinzan
    Red Hill

    I have a feeling Coronis will miss his turn yet again

    new rule: everyone gets 24 hours in the first round. It's unfair I started this so abruptly without some people even realising it was going ahead. Coronis has til midnight essentially

    A bit of leniency on time first round, surely it will be ok

    yeah it'l also help the mixed XP thread gain further steam on this. We have 11 and that has 15 so there's a chance this'l catch up to it in the later rounds which would be annoying

    yeah i tinkered with the rules a bit to accommodate other people's ideas. I think we've got a pretty good system set up... except for round 11 I just realised the order is irrelevant, everyone will be limited to one country each for their final player so it doesn't matter who picks first and last. Would this mean a random/reverse, random/reverse order would be fairer? Or should I just stick with this.

    For the last round? If everyone only needs 1 player left to choose from 1 country each then it should just be a free for all round really, in terms of when to choose.
