    Mystery Box Draft II

    A game for 5 players, this is a draft in which you have the option to pick a player you are given or spurn him for the delights of the Mystery Box.



    I will post a random undrafted player from the list, and an unnamed alternative who is also a random undrafted player from the list. The game is to decide if going for the mystery box is a good gamble or not. Whichever player you don't pick is passed to the next person as an option. If you don't pick within 24 hours, the next person has your options and you can try again at the end of the round.

    The list of 60 players is drawn from the original CW50, minus Bradman and including 11 further players who narrowly missed out or have the player roles to make up the numbers.

    The drafting order will be randomised for each round as double picks are more helpful that usual here.

    How do you ensure it makes a team though? Anyways, sounds like fun, and if the window is 24 hours, I am in.

    I'll tell you if the mystery box player is a batsman, bowler, keeper or allrounder.

    Nah you already have 50 out of 60. Good to have a few wildcards, though I have been pretty predictable anyway

    I'd like to play

    Can I choose the player in the washer and dryer if I don't want the mystery box?

    Athlai added to the end of round 1.

    6 more players added so the pool is now 66.
