    DDD - Draft by Debut Decade

    Following the relative success of my first venture into conducting a draft, I have decided to organise another one. There should be less controversy than my Restricted Draft as the rules are straight forward and don't involve syllables or surname debates.

    Participants select players who made their debut in different decades. The decades are 1960s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s and '10s. You can pick no more than 2 debutants from each decade and no more than 2 players from any Test nation.

    Draft order is by randomiser for Rounds 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9 with the order reversed for Rounds 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10.
    Round 11 will be decided on the basis of earlier randomising so that those most disadvantaged obtain the earliest picks. Confused? see page 17 of Restricted draft.

    There will be a limit of 12 participants.

    When making a selection, please indicate the decade in which they made their debut.

    Hoping to see my previous co-draftees along with a couple more.

    Personally I'm a huge fan of triple Ds so I'm hoping this is fun

    LL - is it possible to run all randomizers at once so we know the full order for all rounds? just a feedback from last time - sometimes the draft ran slowly due to us not having the orders and people running clueless about when their pick is on. I think if we have all the orders for all rounds together we'd know exactly when to sleep and when to pick.

    I'll leave this open for another 48 hours and then I'll conduct a draw.

    Just to double check as you mention Test nations - when we are looking at their debut dates it is debut in Test cricket rather than international cricket more widely
