    Never captained a Test draft

    Inspired by schearzie's recent "Best captains/could have been captains" thread, I present to you a draft that excludes all Test captains!

    RULES

    - Cricketers who are currently or were at one time Test captain of their respective nation are inelligable. To keep things simple I will be using Wikipedia to define who is/was a Test captain. If the player appears on any of the following lists, they're unavailable.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...icket_captains

    - 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.

    - 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.

    Yes I`m in...

    Query must the player have played in a test? Or is that assumed.

    No, the player doesn't even have to had played Tests. So you can select non-Test players if you want to.

    Looking for probably another 4 to 6 players.
