Draft: The RNG Draft: Oops, All ODIs!

I promised I'd run another RNG draft after the Bazball draft was done. Here's said draft. There's no big twist this time, but it isn't just another of the originals: for the first time in RNG Draft history, we're doing an ODI format.

1. I'll filter Cricinfo's search to include all players from notable nations (this should be fairly obvious).
2. This will result in an x amount of pages (for this draft, ytd).
3. For each participant, I will use random.org to generate what page they may select from.
4. I'll DM each participant with their options. They have a week to DM me back.
5. Everyone's RNG list, and pick, is revealed after all picks are complete or after a reasonable amount of time, and the next day the process repeats.
6. As mentioned above, ODI format.
The only selection rule is you can't pick a player taken by another team already. Though with over 500 pages to choose from, you'd be ridiculously unlucky to have that happen to you.
Unlike the Next Level RNG draft, you can put players anywhere in your lineup, as well as moving them afterwards.
Note: the link to the relevant Statsguru filter for anyone who wants to scout (or for me when I inevitably forget it) is https://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/e...;team=8;team=9;template=results;type=allround

Just put a message into this thread if you're interested in playing. I'll start either with eight signups or in four days' time, depending on which comes first. Due to the unique nature of this draft format (by which I mean the order is not a thing), signing up will be allowed until the first round of results are posted in the case that we have more than eight.

Good luck; may the numbers ever be in your favour!

Notification Post
Feel free to respond if you're interested in signing up. I've mentioned everyone from the Bazball Draft's post, as well as anyone who has signed up for a draft since then. If you wish to be removed, please DM me.

I'll start the draft once the Bazball one is done, as we've already passed eight signups.
Ahmed's Pool
India's first captain, CK Nayudu, would have been a useful ODI player with both bat and ball.

Parth's Pool
English offie James Tredwell is the first player on Parth's team. Weird that British spinners have been selected with 67% of the picks so far
TV's Pool
TV said he'd take Chahal 'for the memes', but he's also unironically the best player here.

LiveInASociety's Pool
Syd Barnes is a great pick to kick off the draft. Might be the best of this round.
