    Specialists draft

    The criteria for this draft are simple: each player you pick must have:
    - played at least one Test,
    - have a Test batting average which is less than half their Test bowling average, or have taken no Test wickets.

    So no all-rounders (or, at least, none who were successful in Tests). No Bradman either (since his Test bowling average was 36).

    Usual 16-hour rule for Round 1, 8-hour rule from Round 2 onwards.

    I don't know what I am getting into, but I'll try. This is like the lottery.

    I am in.

    I haven't come up with a way to exclude wicketkeeper-bats, so unless someone thinks of one fast they will be eligible (except for those like de Villiers and Walcott who are excluded by their bowling averages).

    Not sure if you should but you could be putting a cap on average, number of tons or something like that.

    How about "the team's wicket-keeper must have played all their Tests as designated wicket-keeper"?
    trundler and Prince EWS like this.
