Draft: The Alphabet Draft 2 - Rise of the Vowels

So this draft will be the same as the previous Alphabet draft, but in order to avoid picks like before, the player you pick must have batted for the position a certain number of times.

What number you ask?

That depends on how many vowels you have in your word.

So for example, let me take my word from the last draft, prickleback, this word has 3 vowels. So the person I pick for each position must've batted at least 30% at that specific number.

For instance:

Using the same word, my opening batsman, Bill Ponsford, must have batted at 1 at least 30% of the time.

If I check his Cricinfo, he batted at 1, in just 4 innings out of 48. Which means he batted at 1, 8% of the time. This would mean he is not eligible to be picked for this position.

You may use First or Last names to make your pick.

Oh and just to make things a little more complicated, none of the players picked during the first draft can be picked again, so no one can pick Bradman... or Hasan Ali...

If for some reason you are not able to find a single person to fill your spot, please let me know and I will change your letter for you, but again this is only if you are not able to find a single player to fit the criteria...

Also, as a reward for @mohsin7827 for winning the simulation. Before the draft starts, he will be able to swap out his word for someone elses word. (If he chooses to participate in this draft.

Signups will remain open until Sunday. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Would’ve loved to, but really wouldn’t be able to do the necessary research.
