    Combined Test/ODI squad draft

    Inspired by NUFAN's thread on selecting a nation's team to play test/ODI/t20 cricket concurrently, is this thread.

    Participants will pick 22 players. 11 of them will form their test team, 11 will form their ODI team.

    Players picked to play in a participant's ODI team must have played at least one ODI. Ditto for players selected in the test team.

    At the conclusion of the draft, participants post their combos, and each participant in the draft must select a top 3 (not including their own) combo most likely to win a 5 match one day series, and a top 3 (not including their own) combo most likely to win a 5 test series. (top team: 3 points, 2nd team: 2 points, 3rd team: 1 point for each). The participant with the combined test/ODI team with the most points wins.

    Randomized for R1, reversed for R2 and so on.

    Limiting this to ten players as it's a big draft. I'm keen to play so there's nine spots available.

    Six hours between picks to keep things ticking along.

    Express interest.

    In if it's a quick draft (8h or less). Can see this taking months otherwise.

    In but I don't know what this means

    Randomized for R1, reversed for R2 and so on

    At the conclusion of the draft, participants post their combos, and each participant in the draft must select a top 3 (not including their own) combo most likely to win a 5 match one day series, and a top 3 (not including their own) combo most likely to win a 5 test series.
    So participants select a 3 separate ODI teams and 3 separate test teams?
    So in total 66 players?


    So if you can explain for a slow person like me and I get it, then I am in.
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    It's a Cricketweb Drafting tradition that come Voting Time the voter gets to choose his 3 favourite teams from those on show. Because we will creating aTest team and an ODI team the voter will need to cast 6 votes - 3 for the Test team and 3 for the ODI team.

    I'll give it a go if there's still space - which I think there is.
