    Kind of gives an interesting tactical angle though...

    I think we have 10 players signed up... I'll start the draft this evening (UK time), and we'll go with "overseas players allowed" and "only first state/region allowed". (Still happy for 2 or 3 more players to sign up).

    OK, reiterating the rules:

    There are 12 regular regional teams in Australian/West Indian FC cricket: Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica, Leeward Islands, New South Wales, Queensland, South Austraia, Tasmania, Trinidad & Tobago, Victoria, Western Australia, Windward Islands.

    Anyone (from any country) - apart from Don Bradman - who has played FC cricket for any of these teams is eligible for this draft; he will represent whichever of these 12 teams he played FC cricket for first. You must pick an XI which represents 11 of these teams (with no restriction on which team you leave unrepresented). To avoid confusion, when you pick a player please say which team he represents.

    24 hours for each 1st round pick: 12 hours for each later pick. (As usual, the picking order for each even round will be the reverse of the previous round).

    Order for Round 1:

    I can never get lucky with the draft order for the first round, can I?
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
