    Decade of Death Draft

    The idea of this draft suggestion is to select a team of 11 deceased cricketers, every one of which passed away in a different decade. An example of an eligible team, should you be so lucky, would be;

    01. Jack Hobbs (1963) - 1960s
    02. Victor Trumper (1915) - 1910s
    03. George Headley (1983) - 1980s
    04. Clem Hill (1945) - 1940s
    05. Douglas Jardine (1958) - 1950s
    06. Aubrey Faulkner (1930) - 1930s
    07. Keith Miller (2007) - 2000s
    08. Malcolm Marshall (1999) 1990s
    09. George Lohmann (1901) - 1900s
    10. Abdul Qadir (2019) - 2010s
    11. Herbert Strudwick (1970) - 1970s

    Each participant has 12 hours to pick their player for the first round, then 8 hours from round two onwards. If a participant misses 2 consecutive rounds then the next participant in the order can make their pick straight away without waiting the 8 hours.

    As usual, NO Bradman. Non Test players are eligible.

    The talent pool is pretty huge, so it would be nice to get between 12 and 14 participants.

    Feel free to join in.

    Can we please make a rule that if someone dies after the start of the draft they are ineligible to be picked.

    As we now have ten participants, I guess we can get started. If anyone else would like to join, please post a message in here before the conclusion of round 1 and I will add you to the end of the Round 1 draw. The draw for the first two rounds is as follows:

    Round 1:

    SillyCowCorner1*
    Michaelf7777777*
    Red Hill
    trundler
    morgieb
    Teuton
    a massive zebra
    mr_mister
    Test_Fan_Only
    Andrew B
    MrPrez

    Round 2:

    MrPrez
    Andrew B
    Test_Fan_Only
    mr_mister
    a massive zebra
    Teuton
    morgieb
    trundler
    Red Hill
    Michaelf7777777*
    SillyCowCorner1*

    SillyCowCorner's 12 hours starts now.

    Good luck!

    Just spent a while researching death dates. Not many unexpected ones which was some relief. This is going to be interesting and probably a bit more challenging than I thought at first..
    .... If we ever get started
