    Cricket Web Draft

    I thought Lions was going to post something more like what I had in my mind, but it seems he's going for it in a different perspective, so I figured I'd put up my idea, too. What I'd like is for some guys to represent the various countries (they don't have to be your own) - all you require is decent knowledge of world cricketers today so that you don't end up looking like a fool (hence, er, I'm not going to participate... heh).

    Only nine players can play (go figure). What you'll need to do is select a country to represent and state the player you want to be in your team. Obviouslly, you can't select anyone who's already been selected. As the selections go, I'll edit this post (mods can help if they want) and we'll have ourselves a Cricket Web Draft. There will be a twelth man for each team, too. First in, first selection. I'll order the countries/players so it's easier to follow as the players start joining the game.

    Bangladesh - Blewy
    1) Jacques Kallis

    Australia - jamee999
    1) Ricky Ponting

    India - Lions81
    1) Shoaib Akhtar

    West Indies - Mr Mxyzptlk
    1) Brian Lara

    Pakistan - Mister Wright
    1) Shaun Pollock

    England - Tom Halsey
    1) Steve Harmison

    New Zealand - Token
    1) Rahul Dravid

    South Africa - Langeveldt
    1) [awaiting selection]

    Sri Lanka - pskov

    Kenya - Adamc

    Feel free to make your first pick while we wait for the others, then, following the first in, first pick rule.

    I was thinking about that, but I decided against it since it would once again give huge advantages to some countries.

    i think you should do it in reverse order of strength...and also have the opportunity to trade picks..eg. Australia trades there first choice and third choice for say WI's first choice..something like that

    Ok my 2 Keeps are Mohammed Ashraful, and Mashrafe Mortaza 2 decent young players...


    As for my 1st Choice, Jacques Kallis, gives strength to the batting whilst also offering a very good bowling option, also has experience to lead the young guys along...

    but then B'desh would be able to pick the very best player in the world, so eventually it would even out

    Okay, but if we do first in, first pick rule, should we then reverse the picks for the second round? For example, let's say this is the order:

    Bangladesh
    Australia
    South Africa

    (yeah I know it's only three but I'm too lazy to type them all out!)

    then for the second round, it would be

    South Africa
    Australia
    Bangladesh

    then Bangladesh would pick again, and so on. So the last team would get two consecutive picks and the team that picks first would pick last in the second round. I think this nicely balances out the advantages/disadvantages of where you pick, and this is what they do in fantasy baseball/football drafts.

    Yeah, I'm sure that can come into play as things move on, although we'll probably have to pick the full twelve players first. For the picking, I'm just doing it in order of who comes along first, as there's no real advantage to any country that way.
