You have got 100 seconds to pick who you believe is your finest short-form cricketer in the world in the next list.
Instantly… the clock is ticking… who are you selected?
to rush there, however, that is exactly the situation facing the eight new franchises when the player draft is held on Sunday, competing at The Hundred.
Will have the pick barring the England Test players – of lots of the worlds leading cricketers and pick earlier this month icons who had been drafted on the launch day of the tournament.
Want a hitting opener? Chris Gayle might be their man. Need an express pace bowler? How about Mitchell Starc. Fancy some mystery twist? They should probably think about Rashid Khan.
A shocking quantity of homework has become the draft while teams are given less than two minutes each pick.
Birmingham Phoenix have hired Dan Weston because their data insights manager and hell work alongside a small number of individuals, including head coach Andrew McDonald, to crunch the numbers and bring a head.
Sunday is going to be the first big draft in UK sport, so its going to be really exciting, said Weston.
Weve been comprehensive in our preparations and Ive developed a record of more than 4,000 players.
While lots of these names will not be appropriate for this particular competition, it does mean that if a player we aim is chosen by means of a team going before us at the draft, then we could apply filters into the skillset were looking for and find a player whos 80 or 90% comparable and who may provide much better value in the long run.
Well need to be adaptable and since we are working with a brand new format of the game, every group will get their own thoughts on the best composition of a team and team so thatll be intriguing to see.
Without giving away too much, I have seen teams make big errors at past drafts and auctions around the world.
The players comprise Australias Steve Smith, David Warner and Mitchell Starc; West Indies Chris Gayle, Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard, along with Bangladeshs celebrity all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
And while Weston is not able to give away a lot about specific strategies ahead of the draft, BBC Sport has requested others at the know – that our county cricket authors and commentators – to assess who, past the games marquee names, could be fascinating the eight groups.
Scott Read, BBC Radio Manchester: My top pick would be Ed Barnard from Worcestershire.
He is. I believe he can impact matches in all 3 disciplines.
Barnard was a part of the Worcestershire group. Hes just 23 but an all-rounder who appears to do well under stress.
Hecan be superb in the area, offers a danger with the ball ands a gifted batsman.
Jonathan Doidge, BBC Radio Leeds I believe Tom Kohler-Cadmore will continue to be a good player in the shorter formats.
The prior Worcestershire batsman demonstrated the capability to bat through the innings on over 1 occasion, to set knocks, as well as the match for his staff up. His 435 runs 62.14 in the Blast need to make him an attractive proposition at The Hundred draft.
BBC Sussex: Phil Salt, adrian Harms has burst on to the scene at the past two seasons under the watchful eye of Jason Gillespie. The 23-year-old has attracted attention having joined up with the group this year, also will play for its Adelaide Strikers during this years Big Bash.
Luke Wright are also in demand, as being among, if not the very best, backward stage fielders around, as well as will Danny Briggs, whos the in domestic cricket that is T20. He is Mr Unflappable.
Bob Hunt, BBC Radio Bristol: Ryan Higgins has turned into a gifted all-rounder in the past two seasons. A hard-hitting batsman with Gloucestershire who dents and provides bowling full of guile, hes a likely pick for The Hundred.
Adam Williams, BBC South: Keep an eye on top-order batsman Will Jacks at Surrey.
He strikes the ball very cleanly and powerfully once he gets moving and has caught some headlines in the past for creating rapid centuries.
Another that may possibly come into the reckoning for a bit of a utility player is the Fynn Hudson-Prentice of Derbyshire.
He demonstrated to be a very useful part of their run into the with his medium-pacers and lower-order batting.
