You've got no idea who that player is have you? Well he, along with 93 other players, represented the England Cricket Team in the 1990s. And your job will be to pick an entire, incredibly mediocre cricket team out of this pile of cricketing odd socks. It's the draft @blockerdave was made for.

I mean same but still

We can always do a second XI draft afterwards? Would mean picking some uncapped county players as well but there are definitely plenty of those

Actually, if I were to open up the player criteria to include players who played between '88 and '01 there are some extra players who really embody the spirit of '90s England:

:eng: :ar: Usman Afzaal (01)
:eng: :bat: Bill Athey (88)
:eng: :ar: Kim Barnett (89)
:eng: :bat: Chris Broad (88)
:eng: :bat: Tim Curtis (89)
:eng: :bat: Martyn Moxon (89)
:eng: :bat: Tim Robinson (89)
:eng: :ar: John Stephenson (89)
:eng: :bat: Chris Tavare (89)
:eng: :bat: Marcus Trescothick (00)
:eng: :bat: Ian Ward (01)

:eng: :wk: Paul Downton (88)
:eng: :wk: James Foster (01)
:eng: :wk: Jack Richards (88)

:eng: :ar: Chris Cowdrey (88)

:eng: :bwl: Graham Dilley (89)
:eng: :bwl: Matthew Hoggard (00)
:eng: :bwl: Jimmy Ormond (01)
:eng: :bwl: Neal Radford (88)
:eng: :bwl: Ryan Sidebottom (01)

:eng: :bwl: John Childs (88)
:eng: :bwl: Nick Cook (89)
:eng: :bwl: Richard Dawson (01)
:eng: :ar: Chris Schofield (00)

Obviously they'd not go into the original draft, but if we had a second XI draft they could find a place

Alec Stewart...

There isn't any argument against this pick...
