    Babushka draft

    This basic aim of this draft is to pick the best Test match team, however, each player you select must have played for a shorter amount of time at Test level (in years, months & days) than the player you selected previously.

    So, for example, you might select Wilfred Rhodes in Round 1. Rhodes would give you a spectrum of 30 years, 9 months & 12 days. From then you might select someone like Sachin in round 2, who played for 24 years, 0 months & 3 days. And so your round 3 pick must have played for a shorter time period than Sachin, and so on, until the 11th & final round.

    - No Bradman.

    - A player's full career shall measured from day one of their Test debut, until the final day of their final Test match.

    - Retired cricketers available only.

    - 8 hours between picks.

    - RNG'd draft orders for the first ten rounds, the 11th round will operate on a free-for-all basis.

    Who's in?

    I like the idea, wondering if I have enough time for the research. Is there an easy way to find out the career spans of players? (Not looking at individual player pages one at a time)

    So in other words, this is a Russian Nesting Dolls draft?

    These wikipedia lists are pretty handy:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...est_cricketers

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...est_cricketers

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...est_cricketers

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...est_cricketers

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...est_cricketers

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...est_cricketers

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...est_cricketers

    However, they only provide the span of a player's career in years. So I guess if you're tossing up between two players that played for the same for amount of years you might have to look them up individually.

    Only in an online draft will you find a statement such as this acceptable.

    Alrighty then. Seven entrants thus far. I'll leave the draft open for another hour or so before throwing up the order for round 1.

    What with NYE on tomorrow, I think a 12-hour time limit for round 1 is fair. Following this we'll settle into an 8 hour time limit, from R2 on.

    R1 is now live.
