    Draft: "We're not #1"

    Following on from the "best in the world title belt history" thread, how about a draft in which all players who've ever been ranked #1 (at batting or bowling*) in the official ICC player rankings are excluded?

    *Not sure whether #1 all-rounders should also be excluded - any views?

    I'll join. Any chance you could provide a list of banned players? And I think excluding #1 all-rounders wouldn't hurt either.

    I'm in. Agree with jimmy101 about all-rounders and the banned players list.

    I would've been in favor of not excluding top ranked all rounders. But anyway.

    Does anyone else have any views on whether the top all-rounders should be eligible?

    Instinctively I wanted them excluded, but having a look at the actual list I think I want them in. Include.
