    I have decided to run a draft, having really enjoyed the one I have taken part in. As it is my first one, it may be rough around the edges, but I will do my best to make it run as smoothly as possible. So, without further ado, let’s get on to the rules!

    1) Every player must have made their test debut after the age of 30.
    2) Only three players from each nation are allowed.
    3) The team must have players who debuted in at least 3 different decades.
    4) If a pick has not been made after 24h, the next member shall pick.
    5) They are allowed to have played Limited-Overs or First-Class cricket for their nation before this.

    I will limit it to 6 members in the draft as that will (hopefully) create a better experience for those involved. When signing up, please enter your home ground and team name as I will potentially simulate a tournament on Cricket 19 at the end with the poll voted top 2 sides advancing straight to the semi-finals with the other 4 playing in a round robin tournament to get there. Enjoy!

    :ber: Hamilton Cricket Field please; it has a capacity of around 10,000 and almost undoubtedly the best carnival atmosphere in cricket

    Mr. Cricket himself, Mike Hussey. Could there be a more obvious choice? He made his Test debut aged 30 in 2005, owing to the dominance of the Australian team in that period. He ended up with an average of 51 after a remarkable 79 Tests, all in his 30s. He built a reputation as the man to count on in a bad situation, mastering the art of sheperding the tail, and winning matches from difficult positions.
