nicer chapmore odious gobshite. He’s going to have to learn how to play round the wicket right arm bowling from now on or he’s finished as a player.
Just been reading about the 1st phase of the draft for The Hundred – anyone else baffled as chuff? We’ve got Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid and David Willey in the mens pick but as to how/when/why etc. I’m lost.
Also extremely disappointed about our sponsors too. I had to google ‘Popchips’. Very jealous of Trent Rockets and Welsh Fire.

Puts hand up, Stokes I think is a choice from the Test player bucket, so Root ends up at Notts and Bairstow, despite not being selected for the latest Test series, is in Wales. But I could be wrong! I presume all the brands are owned by one conglomerate and they have distributed them to coincide with the colour of strips, but who knows.Posted 1 week ago

Looked at this:
Seems to make a bit more sense now, so the next draft will be in turn from all other players not picked so far from any county and overseas (max overseas 3 per area) in line with the salary bands the teams have left and what the players have put as reserves on themselves.
It’s all a bit bobbins, but then the ECB are aiming this at kids & non-cricket fans, so that’s fine. I just feel sad that there’ll be no local T20 competition, and that by dropping 10 teams and venues, plus having overseas coaches, a lot of professional players will miss out on earning a decent fee over the period, as will the non-hosting grounds.Posted 1 week agoads678Member
Yeah, the test players on central contacts get picked first and teams get to pick from players that are from their catchment area, the Leeds based teams catchment is Yorkshire and Durham so got to choose from Stokes, Root and Bairstow. Obvs Stokes is a no brainer for this format though. Teams without players in their catchment area get to pick from the leftovers.
Then other England players (I think) get picked. Players not on central contracts get to choose their own salary band and teams can choose to pick them on this band if they’re think they are worth it.
Next phase is for non England cricketers from around the world to be picked.
Anderson and Broad didn’t get picked.Posted 1 week ago
