BREAKING NEW GROUND.
Player Drafts have become big news all around the world. Now it’s time to bring all the thrills and spills to this country.
A WHOLE NEW TEAM. ALL AT ONCE.
Selecting one or two players is one thing. But the men's Player Draft means picking an entire team. In one go. Teams in Birmingham. Cardiff. Leeds. London (two teams). Manchester. Nottingham. Southampton. Picked from a host of English stars, international big hitters and the most exciting up and coming players.
WHAT'S THE LOWDOWN?
Three international icons. England stars and home-grown talents. Each team will pick a boundary smashing squad of 15, ready to play cricket at its fastest, wildest best. Who will make the grade?
WHO'LL BE THE STEAL?
