    Auction Draft- 8 participants maximum

    There will be 130 test players in the pool. They will be randomised and released in that order. Players will vary in ability.

    I will release one player a day (most days).

    Bidding will last for at least 24 hours, but possibly more.

    Bidding ends when I release the next player. The highest bidder wins that player.

    Each participant has $10,000,000 to spend on his/her team.

    There will be at least enough openers, middle order batsmen, all-rounders, keepers, spinners and bowlers in the pool for everyone to create a balanced team. But you may choose to try and upset other's teams by selecting more than you need. There are no limits on how many players you can draft, providing you have the money. You may trade players between teams within the game for other players and/or money.

    Players will come from all eras of test cricket. Teams will be judged on their ability to win a test series in a variety of conditions.

    Absolute maximum of 8 players. First in will play.

    In the pool of 130 players, there are the following amounts of players from each category:

    Openers - 20
    Keepers - 15
    Spin bowlers - 15
    Pace bowlers - 30
    All rounders - 15
    Batsmen (middle order) - 35



    There are no limits on how many players you can draft, but your team will be judged on whatever you decide is your best XI.

    You can trade players within the draft with each other, for either other players, money, or a combo of both. This has to be done within this thread. Trading will be finished 24 hours after the last player is drafted.

    Minimum of $100 to bid. Each bid for a player must increase on the previous bid by $100
