    Success draft: Choose an XI full of players who had peak success at 11 different ages

    To measure success in players you are fielding in your top 7(including your keeper who must bat here) we go by the age they turned the year they got their most test centuries. If they reached an equal amount of centuries across multiple years and ages, you can have your pick of those ages.


    To measure success in players you are fielding from 8-11 we go by the age they turned the year they got their most test wickets. If there's a tie between ages, take your pick between those 2 options.


    For example, Bradman got 5 test centuries in 1931 and 1948, you would have been able to have play him as either age 23 or 40 in your XI. Unfortunately Bradman won't be available in this draft.


    But you get the point. You need 11 different ages represented.

    Tentative about it. Interesting idea but will take lot of research. Will make up my mind shortly.

    I like the idea, and not asking you to give up any competitive advantage, but is there any way to find the data besides looking at every player page you want individually?

    It's funny how we went from having one draft at any one time to having one mr_mister draft at any one time

    IIRC Statsguru has an age filter.

    Thanks for that.
    Yes I see now statsguru has 'age at start of match' as a filter. Should be close enough.

    It's not like I'd rather be doing anything else, count me in.

    Any more takers for this one?

    I like how age doesn't discriminate across eras

    16 hours in first round, 8 hours per pick from then on



    So remember, 11 different ages must be represented.

    I guess that's a time out, so I'll start things off with Gary Sobers, who seems to have scored 3 hundreds aged 21, 22, 23 and 34. Do I need to pick the age now?
