Another draft?

Post by admin » Mon Mar 23, 2020 11:01 am

It's a pretty tough time in the world at the moment, does anyone want to play a game to take minds off things?

I'm thinking 4 people sign up to take part, then we have a draft of ALL players who have represented Zimbabwe at Test/ODI/T20I level. Then the rest of us vote on who has picked the best XI. And if it's successful we can do another draft with 4 different people, etc.

Anyone interested?

Sounds good, I'll spectate the first one and let the veterans go, but more than happy to vote and participate in the future!

Why not make a list
Wicketkeepers in they order
Fast bowlers
All rounders

Andy Fowler, Taibu, Mutumbani , Chakabva. BT etc
Cremer , Ray Price, Paul Strang etc
All rounders
Raza, Guy Whithall, Sean Williams, Neil Johnson Chigumbura etc
Opening Batters
Grant Flower, Gavin Rennie , Hami , etc
Middle order batsmans limit of 3
Craig Ervine, Dave Houghton, Murray Godwin, Alistair Campbell, etc
Pretty much I think it should be a balanced squad not picking 8 batters with 3 bowlers

Well, count me in. Should bring some nostalgia at least, in these testing times...

I think yes, but I probably can't manage to participate at the moment

This is a nice idea.

You could have different formats of the draft. One can be to pick a Test only side. One can be an ODI and one a T20. You could even open it up to be things like players never to have got any cap. Players with less than 10 caps.

I know its a Zim forum, but we are all cricket fans, so you could go outside the box completely and create more spice, you can do different countries as well. Some of us are based out of Zim so would be fun to do that too. Even this has variation. Similar to above, you could also have an All-rounders only side. A left handers only side.

I'd like to be part of the next draft, but in the mean time, enjoying watching the original.
