    It's time for one again!


    Test Cricket Decades Draft
    All players in test cricket history are available. However, you can only pick one player born in a particular decade, which will be as follows: 1890-99, 1900-09, etc.

    Don Bradman is blocked.

    Only the performances of the players in Test Cricket will be evaluated during the tournament.

    The decades are as follows, from newest to oldest:

    1980-89
    1970-79
    1960-69
    1950-59
    1940-49
    1930-39
    1920-29
    1910-19
    1900-09
    1890-99

    You can pick any decade to pick the 11th player. Which means you can have 2 players from one of the listed decades.

    The definition of birth is as follows: A player qualifies for 1980-89 if he is born between 01 Jan 1980 (this date inclusive) and 31st Dec 1989 (this date inclusive).

    Apart from this, standard draft rules apply:
    - Initial drafting of 11 players. Extra 2 players per Reinforcement Round, 1 before the final, with the standard inverting the draft order method.
    - 8 hrs per pick. Do not wait or provide extra time.
    - No change in picks after posting.
    - Tag the next manager and update the list when you make a pick.

    Following is the draft order:

    After the last time I played? Never!

    Losing to a team playing somebody who has never opened and somebody who has never played at number six.

    After the systematic voting manipulation scandal earlier in the year I have no faith in the caf authorities to put up a fair draft.

    I'm in for tests. But would prefer a partner. Can't argue merits and demerits of WG Grace and whether he was strong at the cut

    People pick players in a determined order like 1-16, then 16-1, then 1-16 again etc till everyone has full teams. Can't pick a player that has been picked by someone else. Tournament between the final teams at the end.

    Are you in for the test draft or both?

    I have absolutely zero interest in cricket yet I still find myself checking cricket draft threads. I think I have a problem.
