Rather than make a new thread. Anyone in the mood for a draft?

I was thinking a T20 Team draft with the only rule being that they have to have played at least one international and must have never played any t20 domestic or t20 international matches

Might make us think outside the box for players who could have been good short form players had it been around at the time

So GS, Raja, Katto, bolero, Leo and me.

Anyone else want to join?

And I'd say that you can pick any player who has

1) Played at least one international Test or ODI
2) Has never played any first-class T20 - so no T20 or T20i appearances on their CricInfo match list.

And perhaps a bonus rule that I've just thought of. One of your players MUST have played his last international game BEFORE 1960?

Just a thought to try and force us to find people who really never came close to a t20 but are still not so obscure that no one had ever heard of them :)

no. i don’t want to pick “could have made a good T20 player guess picks off a test player”.
make a test draft instead with pre 1960 players.
be genuine. let’s pick new young talent who are born after 1990 as requirement.

Test draft with pre-1960s players sounds good.

I don't even mind a T20 draft of all players who've played T20 or ODIs (guys like Viv and Kapil shdn't be deprived just cos T20 wasn't around in their time).

Having said that, no assurance someone who did well in ODIs would do well in T20s. But we could leave that to the judgment of the participants.

Oh, it was just to have debates like "Is Viv a better pick than ABDV"? :grin:

But I'm fine if we just have a T20 draft with players who have actually played T20.
That keeps it real - no hypothetical stuff.
