    Birthplace Draft

    Pick 11 players for a Test team such that no two players in your team were born in the same country.

    For the purposes of this draft:
    - West Indies is *not* a country: the country of birth for a West Indian player might be Barbados/Jamaica/Trinidad & Tobago (etc).
    - Conversely, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland all count as being part of the UK, so you may not pick (say) one player born in England and another born in Wales.
    - The present day country containing a player's birthplace is what matters.
    - The Test team (if any) that a player played for is irrelevant.

    Hope that's clear!

    Usual rules (no Bradman; 16 hours for first pick, 8 hours for each subsequent pick; order of picks in an even round is the reverse of the round before) will also apply.

    So someone born in British India counts as India/Pakistan/Bangladesh rather than UK?

    I'm in.

    This is going to be an interesting draft. It is quite possible the quality of player picked in the last round will be greater than the quality of player picked in the first couple of rounds.

    Knowledge of where great West Indians were born is going to be very important and it is something I know very little about.

    Thank you AndrewB for running this draft/

    Note - it'd be helpful if you put the countries of birth with your picks.

    Yes, it would be very useful if countries are listed next to picks, especially picks that are born in unusual places for cricketers and West Indies players.

    As a South American, and a 'West Indian'..., count me in.
