    No NO.. It doesn't involve any gambling.... maybe..

    This draft is just to see who has the best luck among us all (after @blockerdave , of course). It will be an ODI draft, and each person shall try to make the best possible XI, as his luck permits.


    Round 1 :- Forced Pick
    In this round, every participant will get the chance to choose one player and a person participating in this draft. That person will get that player in his team NO MATTER WHAT! If two people pick the same player for different persons, Random.org decides who gets that player. And there is no limit on how many players one person gets in this round, i.e. if 3 persons nominate players for Person A, he will get 3 players in his team.

    Round 2 :- Levelling Round
    Would be a forced picking from Reserved lists, to bring all people to same no. of players.

    Round 3 :- The Gamble
    Every person can gamble one player from his team in search of a better player of the same role... However, there is 55% chance that you would end up with a worse option (if possible :p ), 30% chance of a similar skilled player, 10% chance of a better player (Not a legandary type), 5% chance of one of the greats or Legends.

    Eg:- If someone choses to gamble Monty Panesar

    55% chance- He gets someone of Adam Huckle or Josephat Ababu category
    30 % chance - Michael Beer or Naimur Rehman category
    10% chance - Amit Mishra or Bhuvneshwar Kumar Category
    5 % chance - Joel Garner or Muttiah Muralidaran category

    Round 4:- The Recovery
    Normal Draft, ALTHOUGH has the below rule..

    And, a rule to fearsome tweak people's teams up.

    After a certain no. of picks (to be decided based on the picks left in the Recovery), there will be a Spin of Fortune, which would select two people at random and those two players will swap their teams for the rest of the draft.

    WILL ALLOW ONLY 8 TEAMS FOR NOW

    This sounds a lot like the Blind Draft I was planning - very interested to see whether it is or not. I'll also sign up

    Those are some puzzling rules; it'll certainly be nothing like the Blind Draft I had in mind, but equally I'm not sure that I like it very much. I'll play through it though and see how it goes - just because an idea isn't something I like at first doesn't mean it's not a good idea

    Just to explain the rules a little....

    If A,B,C,D,E are five participants...

    Round 1
    All send me the player they want to nominate for someone (in PM of course)
    • A - I'll give Tony Suji to E
    • B - I'll give Stuart Binny to C
    • C - I'll give Chamara Kapugadera to A
    • D - I'll give Peter Handscomb to C
    • E - I'll give Bilawal Bhatti to C
    Since no one knows who the other is nominating, it is possible that some teams (like C) end up with more players while some teams (like B) end up with no players at all.

    Round 2

    Now since C has 3 players and all others have less than 3, there will be a normal lucky dip from the Reserve Pool I'll set-up. It would consider of both good and bad players so it's up to luck only.

    Round 3

    Now all the teams have 3 players each. Every team has the option to "gamble" one player from its team. Let's say E (who ended up with Tony Suji in Round 1) wants to gamble Tony Suji... A random draw from Random.org will decide which kind of player does he get. He could end up with players like James Celestine, or star players like Kapil Dev or Malcolm Marshall.

    Round 4
    This is a normal draft to complete 11 players... However after every X no. Of picks (say 14), I'll make a draw from Random.org, and choose two teams (say it turns out to be A and D), then their teams will be exchanged.

    Hope this clears it for you. @ahmedleo414 @Aislabie

    I'm free to any changes.

    Aislabie is sort of supernaturally good at Drafts...he arguably posts some of the best teams despite whatever restrictions are there.
