Draft: The One Below Draft

Okay, so there have been drafts where members pick their own players, I was wondering something along the lines of...what if?

What if we had these guys pick the teams for other members?

This gave me the idea to create the One Down draft. You're not picking for you, you're picking for the person just below you.

How can this possibly work, qpee?

I'm going to put a mixture of 10 excellent and terrible players, Random.org will give me the first player. That player will be given to the first member in the draft, as given by https://www.draftordergenerator.com/

That person then goes on to nominate some other player to the next on the list. That person HAS to put them in their team. But that person can nominate a player for the third person, and so on...

This will be a Test team. Anyone who has played First Class cricket is eligible, according to the rules below.


- For a player being picked as a specialist batsman, they must have a First Class average of at least 30 or more.

- For bowlers, they must have at least a First Class average of at least 40 or less.

- All rounders, you can pick one or the other averages, but not both.

- Wicketkeepers must be designated keepers in at least 50 innings, and they must have at least 75 dismissals in First Class cricket to be considered (dismissals are catches and stumpings).

Remember, you're not picking for yourself, you're picking for whoever is next.

Maybe it's a dumb idea. I dunno. Let me either know your thoughts, or tell me to delete this thread immediately.

Example:

Let's say the player voted for is WG Grace and I am the one to get him, he's in my team but @Yash. is next on the list I am allowed to give him someone like Daren Powell (FC average 33, Test average 47)...

Or let's say that realistically, Yash again has way too many terrible bowlers on his team, I'm just before him so I decide to give him a terrible batsman...like in the other draft thread, Ray Julien. (EDIT: Julien had a horrible average but did have the quality to have the requisite number of dismissals.)

(Sorry Yash, you were the last one I talked to on here so you're the first victim/example.)

EDITx4: the fact that the players need to play Tests or at least be selected as 12th man.

It's early days still for this, much discussion would obviously be around.

Discuss.

Talk.

Bitch.

Whine.

And get my topic better.

Ideas and suggestions are always upfront.

Still waiting on more people to sign up. I can run this with as little as 6 people, but the more the merrier.
you yourself not participating?

You tagged them on Saturday and no replies. Like I said, this was a maybe Draft.

Not going to happen, although the idea is there. Might hold onto it for the future.

Draft postponed for now.
