Idea I just had - a youngster one.
Rules of the Challenge:
- Take a side to glory, but.....
- ...you cannot use players with any experience. This means that you'll have to rely on rookies for your wins!
- Any ICC version is acceptable, but it must be played with normal.
- Any side is acceptable.
- Winner is who takes a side the quickest to a title.
- Game starts after the first season (as for the first you still have the original squad there).
Good luck. You're probably gonna need it.
RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012
Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

Regens or uncapped players only IMO. Guys with 5-6 FC matches at the start always suck.
I spent 3 years pouring technique training into Jos Buttler in ICC 2010, but because he came in with a FC average of 19 from 5 games, he only ever made one ton for me. And sucked big time in limited overs games.

Simmed the 2nd season. Laptop ran out of battery; however still not enough regens available to even form a side.
Initial crop of five look solid. Stats are pretty good for simmed matches:
N Bowen: 1,099 runs @ 40.70 - 23 wickets @ 52.61
J Westwood: 1,033 runs @ 34.43 - 28 wickets @ 56.04
S Wodehouse: 1,288 runs @ 37.88 - 4 wickets @ 17.25
G Kroll: 1,013 runs @ 31.66
G Pettifer: 608 runs @ 28.95
Wodehouse also played 4 Tests. 282 runs @ 35.25
Leaving this challenge to others for the time being. It's going to take at a minimum an additional two seasons to even come close to a squad.

Post 44 relates how Lincolnshire won the CC in Season #3 with ten rookies and one Samaraweera.
