    Draft suggestion: Passengers XI

    Following on from last year's "Losers Draft" (pick an XI with more losses than wins), I wondered about having a "Passengers Draft" - pick the worst possible XI with more wins than losses. Obviously, you'd need an extra rule that all teams must have a reasonable balanced line-up.

    There's two obvious alternative ways it could be run:
    a) The total number of wins over the XI must be more than the total number of losses (as was used - the other way round - for the Losers Draft), or
    b) Each player must have played in more wins than losses (which would be simpler)

    Any views?

    So we'd just choose the worst XI? I'll do that

    OK, let's go for it. Rules are

    - You're trying to pick the worst possible XI, all of whom must have played Test cricket
    - No specific rules on the shape of your XI, but it must be reasonably balanced (sensible batting order, at least 4 bowlers, a wicket-keeper, etc)
    - Overall, the eleven players must have played in more Test wins than Test defeats (i.e. method (a) as described in the original post).

    Also, since presumably some pretty obscure players will be getting picked, you might like to say why your pick is worthy of selection in a worst possible XI

    In general 12 hours per pick, but no time-outs for the first 24 hours (to give people a chance to notice that the draft has started!)

    As usual, picking order in each even round is the reverse of the previous round.

    Order for Round 1:

    The 24 hours for kingkallis to make his first pick started about 2 hours ago with my "OK let's go for it" post above.

    This draft seems like it will be fun. Can I jump in after Fred?
