Quality control draft 2.0

I did the first version of this draft in 2017 and felt like reviving the format with some minor adjustments.

So this time around your team is basically separated into 2 sections- top 7 and 8-11 or batsman/batting all rounders and bowlers/bowling allrounders

The top 7 batsman(including your wicketkeeper and 5th bowler if you choose to have one) will need to be from 7 different test batting average categories:

If a player's most frequent test batting position was somewhere in the top 7(by innings), he counts as a batsman for this draft and must bat in the top 7

Under 32
32-36
36-40
40-44
44-48
48-52
52+

Your 8-11 will need to be from 4 different test bowling average categories.

If a player's most frequent test batting position was somewhere 8-11(by innings), he counts as a bowler for this draft and must bat 8-11

31+
27-31
23-27
Under 23


Your keeper must bat in the top 7, just to keep things simple. No Bradman. Min 1 test. It'l be a standard random/reverse order draft unless somebody can figure out a way to make a fun style of varied/flexible order as I know they're in vogue. I can't think of a good way though

if someone's average falls exactly on a whole number(eg batting average of 44) things get rounded up and they would count in the 44-48 category(if that wasn't clear)
