    In Your Place Draft

    I'm just considering running a draft based on batting positions. When a player has spent the most time of his career batting in a position, it's where he would be in your final XI.
    Anyone interested?

    Does "most" here mean "more than 50% of innings", or "more than any other position" (the latter would rule out Wilfred Rhodes, for example)?

    Yep.. As AndrewB pointed out, need to work out the fine print on what constitutes "most" etc but sounds exciting, so in

    Should be the latter in my opinion.

    I meant "former", of course.
    Checking cricinfo, there's surprisingly many players with a tie for their commonest batting position (over 300).

    In the case where people have 2 or more batting positions as their most common I thought any of the positions in question would be ok. Does that work for everyone? For example, so long as a player who batted at number '1'or '1&9' in the order most often is in that or one of those positions in your final team.

    Just to be clear......

    Player A
    No.1 = 33
    No.2 = 34
    No.3 = 10
    No.7 = 2

    Position No.2 must be chosen.


    Player B
    No.7 = 6
    No.8 = 20
    No.9 = 44
    No.10 = 44

    Either No.9 or No.10 can be chosen.

    Will no. 1 and no. 2 be considered 2 separate batting positions for this (or will 'opener' be considered one batting position)?

    Yes, that's what I was thinking. As to the opener, I'd prefer that both 1&2 are different positions but am open to what people want. But guys like Hayden and Warner prefer opening at non striker so it can make a difference.
