Draft: The Quotea Draft

South African cricket has an uncomfortable relationship with racial inequality going all the way back to the inception of the country, through the Apartheid era, and into the present day. Now, in an effort to create vaguely more balanced ethnic representation, the quota system specifies a minimum of six "players of colour", of whom a minimum of two must be "Black Africans".

However, when you try to name an all-time South African Test eleven, it's almost always all-white. The idea of this draft is to put that right: you will be selecting all-time South African Test elevens, but they will conform to the quota requirements in place in the present day. Also, due to the number of South African-born players who have ended up playing overseas, you will be allowed one South African who represented another Test nation.

There is no requirement for your players to have played Test cricket either, for all sorts of reasons.

Ideally, I'm looking for around 8-10 players here; there are plenty of quota players available to fill out that many teams (they just aren't all very good), but it probably needs those few extra teams so that there aren't too many legendary South African bowlers missing out
