Draft: All-Time IPL Draft

As the IPL is going on, and as I go back into lockdown starting from tomorrow, I thought it might be time to get some draft action going again. Welcome to the All-Time IPL Draft!

upload_2020-10-22_14-43-44.png

The rules are pretty simple; it will be a standard ordered draft, where the goal will be to select the best eleven you can. The usual rules apply whereby if 24 hours pass, you can skip a person's pick, and if they miss two consecutive picks then you can pass over them in the draft order until they return.

The interesting bit, as always, is the line-up rules.

Overseas players - Like in the real-life IPL, your playing XI may only contain up to four non-Indian players. The rest must be Indians. Pakistani players are allowed.

Pre-Twenty20 players - The additional rule here is that five of your players must have retired without playing Twenty20 cricket.
There are selected instances where a retired player may have appeared for one or two exhibition Twenty20 matches; in those instances, I shall pass judgement - but I will usually be fine with that so long as they did not play any other format after 2004.

Now this is not an especially good team, but it shows the right balance:
  • Seven Indians and four overseas players
  • Six Twenty20 players and five pre-Twenty20 players

Kapil Dev had a strike rate of 95 in ODIs and 94 in tests!
He was clearly ahead of his generation and I have absolutely no doubt he would be one of the most successful players if he played the IPL today.
Not only does this give me a gun player, it gives me a gun Indian player, a past player and an all rounder. Really will help my side
Following the coloring pattern from Aislabie, my team is

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7. :ind: :ar: :slvo: Kapil Dev

That is one too much thing to hope for. :D

On the other hand I expected Kapil to be available when I would have picked him. Didn't know he would be #2!
