'World Cup 2011' Draft

Make it 18. Means people get time to research and sleep and go to work/school. 12 would probably be more efficient but some people may not be able to get online in that period.

You're forgetting the deadline though - there's only about a month to get this done. Assuming 10 entries, that's 110 picks - has to be 6 hours or it won't get completed.

That exactly was my point. We will have to complete picking ALL players by 19th February 2011 or else I wont be able to keep counting ( though we have built an automated system to count points ) points on time.

We may have to limit the number of participants if we're going to get this done in time.

Whatever happens, the maximum is 19.

In the absence of a formal listing I'd suggest we have a minimum of, say, 5 batsmen, 3 bowlers.

A designated keeper (but only one - if someone picks 2 keepers then one is nominated as a batsman) then 2 players as the person sees fit?

Ok so lets go for these 2 options :

5 batsman | 2 all rounders | 1 wicket keeper | 3 bowlers
4 batsman | 3 all rounders | 1 wicket keeper | 4 bowlers

In if room. Fine with 6 hours.

I suggest considering pairing off participants to both maintain the 6 hour deadlines as well as get the drafting done by the 19th.

If we're trying 12 hours then it pretty much guarantees it being a wasted effort to be honest, the whole idea is to have a team by the start of the competition.
