    Fixture #2: CoverDrive v. Bossman - Test Cricket Fantasy League

    You will be selecting from the players you expect to play in the first test between Australia and South Africa. Please pm everyone in Group B with 8 bids, within the next 4 days. The earlier both of you submit the better, so that subsequent rounds of bidding can take place sooner. I say everyone in Group B because, if for some reason I'm not able to run the silent auction, someone else can do so in that time.

    If you wish to work out a mutual deadline so that neither participant gains an unfair advantage by waiting til the last minute, that'd be great.

    When both sets of bids have been submitted, I will post them on this thread. Feel free to use this thread to communicate and figure out when's the earliest each of you can submit a bid.

    Here are the squads for the two teams:
    Australia
    Michael Clarke
    Shane Watson
    Ed Cowan
    David Warner
    Ben Hilfenhaus
    Michael Hussey
    Nathan Lyon
    James Pattinson
    Ricky Ponting
    Peter Siddle
    Mitchell Starc
    Matthew Wade

    South Africa
    Graeme Smith
    Hashim Amla
    AB De Villiers
    JP Duminy
    Imran Tahir
    Faf Du Plessis
    Jacques Kallis
    Rory Kleinveldt
    Morne Morkel
    Alviro Petersen
    Robin Peterson
    Vernon Philander
    Dale Steyn
    Jacques Rudolph
    Thami Tsolekile

    If you check the scoring system, you should infer that on average, 5 batsmen and 3 bowlers is the ideal composition. You want to pick as few bowlers as you can while still achieving the bowling quota. If you're confident about the 2 bowlers you have, than go for it. Not so sure about the 3 you've chosen, pick a 4th bowler or an all-rounder

    Fair. I honestly think picking on fb and then showing our picks on CF is silly. "Hiding draft patterns" seems a bit pointless to me.

    Ok Bossman...this is taking too long

    Both of you...pm me some ordering of players for me to run an auto-draft some time before the toss of this match. Failure to do so will result in forfeit. A team will still be picked to ensure the bowling quota was met. It can either be a ranking of 16 players, or separate rankings for bowlers, batsmen, and all rounders (if you so choose), with directions for how many of each to pick, and in what order.

    For example, it could be something like this:
    1. Watson
    2. Morkel
    3. Steyn
    4. Pattinson
    5. Siddle
    6. Philander
    7. Amla
    8. Clarke
    .....
    16. Petersen

    OR
    Something like this:
    First pick 3 bowlers based on this ranking:
    1. Watson
    2. Morkel
    3. Steyn
    4. Pattinson
    5. Siddle
    6. Philander

    Then pick 1 all-rounder based on this:
    1. Watson
    2. Kallis

    Then pick the remaining 4 players based on this ranking:
    1. Clarke
    2. Smith
    3. Warner
    4. Wade
    ...
    8. Petersen

    I'd recommend you choose the latter system for your auto-draft method

    Can you have a separate thread where the latest and accurate team squads are posted?
