    So, as the Layer Cake Draft nears completion (with big thanks to everyone involved for making it such a success), it is time to get a new draft moving to try to fill the yawning void of self-isolation. But what could possibly fill the void of such a bonkers draft?

    Well - another one exactly the same of course. Welcome to The Lasagne Draft. It's the same thing, but with one-day teams (although @Na Maloom Afraad spent a little while building a one-day team, but he's well on his way to fixing it now).

    How it works

    The first three "layers" of this draft will be run by PM. It means quite a bit of work on my end, but please oh please I need something to fill my days at the moment.

    Layer 1 - Protected Player
    This is the one player you want in your side above all else. Well, unless someone else tries to protect him - then you both miss out.

    Layer 2 - Rejected Players
    This is the part where you pick 20 players who you don't want to be available for anyone. There are tactical ways of doing this, but remember that anyone you reject here will be unavailable to you even in...

    Layer 3 - The Lucky Dip
    This is the part where you submit four players into a lottery. They could go to anyone at all, unless they were (a) rejected by that person or (b) nominated for the Lucky Dip by more than one of you.

    Once all that's done, we get into a normal ordered draft, whereby you all have to pick the last six players to desperately try to fix the teams that the first three layers have left you with in...

    Layer 4 - The Recovery Draft
    Yeah, just six ordered rounds which go from worst team to best team. Here you won't be able to pick anyone on the rejected list.

    Player eligibility

    Much as the Layer Cake draft allowed people to select anybody who had played a first-class match, the Lasagne Draft will allow people to select anybody who has played a List A match. So for clarity: ELIGIBLE / ELIGIBLE / ELIGIBLE / INELIGIBLE

    Honestly, this draft works really nicely and it'd be great to have y'all be part of it. (And yes, depending how long we're in quarantine for there is also likely to be a T20 version and potentially a women's version in due course.)

    Well done @ahmedleo414 on a well-chosen protected pick. You've got yourself a legendary batsman and a captain all in one go.

    ODI stats: 3,394 runs @ 32.01 (3 centuries, best 123) and 169 wickets @ 24.38 (2 5WI, best 5/19) in 141 matches
    List A stats: 6,641 runs @ 29.78 (6 centuries, best 143) and 289 wickets @ 22.61 (2 5WI, best 5/19) in 282 matches

    Honestly I'm surprised nobody else's picks even mentioned him: Flintoff was a good Test all-rounder with great moments, but he was objectively one of the very best ODI all-rounders ever to pick up a white ball.

    List A stats: 4,845 runs @ 41.05 (SR: 103.50, 12 centuries, best 174) in 145 matches

    A really good pick here, and someone who was again overlooked by everyone else. Once Bairstow got promoted to the top of the ODI batting order, it completely turned the format upside down. Look not only at his average, but also his strike rate.
