    Running Out Of Players Draft - Season 1

    Participating:

    1) Teuton
    2) Michaelf77777x
    3) NUFAN
    4) Mr Mister
    5) PEWS
    6) trundler
    7) Milenko47
    8) GoodAreasShane
    9) Test_Fan_Only
    10) AndrewB

    This is also the Draft order for the first 2 rounds. We'll go from 1-10, and then 10-1, which means AndrewB gets a double pick. I'll generate a new draft order every two rounds

    The Top 100 run-scorers, Top 100 wicket-takers and Top 50 stumping-takers have been banned from Season 1. This gives us a list of 241 banned players. I have attached that in an Excel file here.

    Each person needs to pick a squad of 14 players for a hypothetical 3-match Test Series. Players do not have to have played any Test cricket, or indeed any professional cricket, to get selected. At the end of the draft we will have a voting thread to see who did best, and the 140 players selected will be banned for Season 2.
    .
    Players should make their selection with 24 hours of the previous drafter. If a player misses his turn, the next drafter may make his pick right away. A drafter who has missed his turn can make his selection whenever he returns.

    There is one rule when making your pick - you must include a link to the player's cricinfo/cricketarchive/cricbuz/cricclubs/cricHQ/etc. player profile in the post making the pick. This will be useful once we get deep in this game.

    Teuton has first pick. He has 24 hours, effective from 4:05 AM GMT.

    Good luck and have fun!

    In my opinion, he is one of only two people (along with Bradman) who have a case for being the greatest cricketer ever.

    IMO he's the 5th greatest batsman of all time, behind Bradman, Hobbs, Sobers, and Hutton. Wish he was included in more England XIs.

    For what its worth I had 3 players in mind when I saw I was the 3rd pick and Grace was one of them. Made my decision easier.

    Haha NUFAN's message to me on Facebook makes so much more sense now. I didn't know this had started because of the separate thread. Will pick within an hour.

    So 24 hours seems like a long time.

    Shane is still up.
