    Silent Draft

    It's a couple of years since I ran a silent draft - anyone up for another one?

    As before, each drafter starts with $1,000,000 to buy their XI.

    As a change from before, this time I name an XI for each round, and the entrants e-mail me their bids for as many or as few of those players as they like (up to a maximum of however much is remaining of their initial $1,000,000). The highest bid for each player, naturally, gets that player for that amount of money.

    When does the draft get over? Might be fun having a condition that once >=50% drafters get their XIs, draft ends. Will force people to optimize for both strength of the team and for chance of completing an XI.

    OK, 6 drafters should be enough - if anyone else wants to join in before Round 1 is complete, please feel free.

    The XI to pick from in Round 1 is as follows:

    Jack Hobbs
    Len Hutton
    Don Bradman
    Sachin Tendulkar
    Steve Smith
    Garry Sobers
    Adam Gilchrist
    Shane Warne
    Malcolm Marshall
    Sydney Barnes
    Glenn McGrath

    Regarding ankitj's comment. I'm adding an extra rule that you must bid for at least one player in each round, until your team is complete.

    So for this round, everyone should bid for anywhere between 1 and 11 players (inclusive), bidding up to $1,000,000.

    Please e-mail your bids to andi.pqrs@gmail.com . (And don't forget to include your CW name in the signature!)

    Confirm receipt of mr_mister's bids.

    And I've just noticed (thank you Excel) that honestbharani's bids total more than $1,000,000 - please change your bids!
