Over the last 10 seasons of this league, we've had Test legends taking on fellow Test legends in the 5-day format, and even the one-off season where we had ODI legends taking on fellow ODI legends in the 50-over format. But what we've never had before is Test legends taking on Test legends in the ODI format, a theme I believe this league is long due for after having run so many seasons of Cricket at the Olympics in the eras where 50-over cricket was but a distant fantasy. That essentially will be the theme for this, the proposed 11th season of Legends At Battle - the best players to never play ODI cricket.
As the theme name suggests, the season will be in the 50-over format and players that haven't played a single ODI game throughout their careers will be valid for selection. Okay, for the sake of certain players who played a handful of ODIs in the 1970s towards the twilight of their careers, I'll allow each team a maximum of 2 players who have played 10 ODIs or fewer in their squads. Players that have appeared in Tests/List-As only but have zero ODI caps are also valid, as are those that have played T20s/T20Is only. All players will be drafted by managers with there being no country-based restrictions.
