Greetings all and welcome to the Mashrafe Mortaza Simulation Draft, my first draft for a long time and one that will hopefully have a similar vibe to the classic Panesar Draft. It is so named because your eventual teams will be similar in structure to the Bangladesh teams captained by Mashrafe Mortaza, which usually comprised six key players (Tamim, Mushfiq, Shakib, Sarkar, Mashrafe and Mustafiz) and then a bunch of also-rans who Mashrafe tried to patch up the gaps in the side with.

The rules will be as follows:
  • In this draft, you will be seeking to select One-Day International teams, and for a player to be eligible they must have played at least one One-Day International match.
  • For each of the first five rounds, you will need to pick one player for your team, and one player for the lottery.
  • At the end of each rounds, the lottery players will be assigned to people's teams via RNG.
  • All players in the team must be selected in a role that they've played before - for example no opening the batting with Ben Stokes as he's never done that before, but also no hiding Francis Otieno at number eleven as he's never done that before either.
  • In the sixth round, you will pick the player that will complete your playing XI, and the lottery will pertain specifically to the 12th man.
  • All other usual draft rules apply.
I am looking for a maximum of six people to take part, as I don't want this to drag on for too long.

Remember, usual draft rules apply - if somebody goes 24 hours without making their pick then you can take your turn. Also, please ping me when you've made the pick before a lottery - I might miss it otherwise.

There's a chance of you being assigned your own lottery player right? I remember vaguely being bitten in the arse by one of my picks ages ago.

ODI teams, huh. And I'm first. Huh. Well...shit.

I'll take Sir Curtly Ambrose for my first pick. Don't care who gives me better stats than him. He's my fav cricketer and will always be.

As for someone to throw into the lottery...another West Indian...erm...not quick but I'm feeling somewhat generous. Lionel Baker was the first player to represent the island of Montserrat (which is basically just one big volcano). Bowling average of 32ish in ODIs, not bad at all.

With the lottery element meaning that my team could be very unbalanced later on, I'm going to start by picking the ultimate utility player. He might only have played one ODI match (the format arrived at the very end of his playing career), but my pick is the hard-hitting batsman, seam bowler, wrist spinner and finger spinner from Barbados, Sir Garfield Sobers.

1620734260124.png

ODI stats - 0 runs and 1 wicket for 31 (econ: 2.95) in 1 match
List A stats - 2,721 runs @ 38.32 (1 century, best 116*) and 109 wickets @ 21.95 (1 5WI, best 5/43) in 95 matches

Aislabie's XI so far:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6. :wi: :ar: Garfield Sobers
7.
8.
9.
10.
11.

And for the lottery, I nominate Kenya's Brijal Patel because yikes.

1620734980134.png

ODI stats - 360 runs @ 16.36 (best 44) and 4 wickets @ 40.75 (best 2/20) in 31 matches
List A stats - 438 runs @ 12.88 (best 44) and 15 wickets @ 28.80 (best 3/19) in 51 matches

@ddrap14 - you're up
