    "200 Tests or less" Draft

    Rules:

    - All players selected must have played at least 1 Test match.

    - Your final XI must have played, in total, not more than 200 Test matches.

    - Order of selection will be determined by a random number generator; subsequently the following round will feature the same order, but reversed. After the opening two rounds, this process will repeat itself. There will be 11 selection rounds & will be generated as we go.

    - Players must make their selection within 12 hours of the preceding player’s selection otherwise they will be timed out. If a player is timed out they can still make a selection whenever possible but are not allowed to select any cricketer already taken.

    - The finalised teams will be put to a vote to decide the winner.

    - No Bradman. (Also, as a consequence of the first two rules, no Tendulkar).

    I think we have 10 people already signed up for this in the earlier thread, so I'll be posting the first round order fairly shortly. We could probably fit in 1 or 2 late entrants if anyone else is keen.

    I don't quite understand the exclusion of Bradman in this draft; imho there are more hax picks than him for this particular one.
