You have got 100 seconds to select who you think is your best cricketer on earth by the following list.
Instantly… the clock is ticking… that have you chosen?
Sorry to rush there, but that is precisely the situation facing the eight brand new franchises competing in The Hundred whenever the player draft is stored on Sunday.
Trent Rockets, who are coached by Stephen Fleming, will probably have the first choice barring the England Test players – of many of the worlds top cricketers also also select icons that were drafted on the launch day of the tournament before this month.
Want a large hitting opener? Chris Gayle may be their guy. Need an pace bowler? How about Mitchell Starc. Fancy some mystery twist? They should consider Rashid Khan.
The draft has been become by a staggering amount of prep while groups have been awarded less than two minutes per pick.
Birmingham Phoenix have hired Dan Weston because their information insights manager and bring a statistical mind and hell work along with a small number of individuals, including head coach Andrew McDonald, to crunch the numbers.
Sunday is going to be the first important draft in UK game, so it is going to be very exciting, said Weston.
We have been thorough in our preparations and Ive developed a record of more than 4,000 players.
While lots of these names will not be acceptable for this particular competition, it will imply that if a participant we aim is chosen by means of a team moving before us in the draft, we can apply filters to the skillset were looking for and find a player who is 80 or even 90% comparable and that may provide better value in the long term.
We will have to be flexible and since we are dealing with a brand new format of the game, every group will get their own ideas on the best composition of a staff and team so thatll be interesting to see.
Without giving too much away, Ive seen teams make big errors at past drafts and auctions across the world.
The players available in the draft include Australias Steve Smith and Mitchell Starc; West Indies Chris Gayle, Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard, and Bangladeshs celebrity all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan.
And while Weston is unable to give away too much about specific strategies ahead of the draft, the BBC Sport has asked others in the know – our county cricket writers and commentators – to – evaluate who, beyond the games marquee names, may be interesting the eight groups.
Scott Read, BBC Radio Manchester: My top pick would be Ed Barnard from Worcestershire.
He is a brilliant young player who seems to get better each season. I think he can influence matches .
Barnard was a part of the Worcestershire group. Hes just 23 but.
Heoffers a threat with the ball,s a gifted batsman and can be excellent in the area.
Jonathan Doidge, BBC Radio Leeds: Having watched Yorkshire during this summerI believe Tom Kohler-Cadmore will continue to be a player in the shorter formats.
The prior Worcestershire batsman showed the capability to bat to set knocks, in addition to the match for his team up. His 435 runs 62.14 in the Blast need to make him an attractive proposition in The Hundred draft.
BBC Sussex: Phil Salt, adrian Harms has exploded on to the scene in the past two seasons under the watchful eye of Jason Gillespie. The 23-year-old will play for the Adelaide Strikers during this seasons Big Bash, also has attracted attention with joined up with the squad earlier this season.
Luke Wright will be in demand, as being among, if not the best, backward point fielders around, as well as will Danny Briggs, whos the in cricket. Hes Mr Unflappable.
Bob Hunt, BBC Radio Bristol: Ryan Higgins has Become a in the past two seasons. A batsman using Gloucestershire who provides bowling packed with guile, and scores fast, he is a likely pick for Your Hundred.
Adam Williams Keep an eye in Surrey.
He hits the ball very cleanly and powerfully after he gets moving and has caught some headlines in the past for making centuries.
Another that might come into the reckoning for a bit of a utility player is Derbyshires Fynn Hudson-Prentice.
He proved to be a part of their run to the together with his medium-pacers along with lower-order batting.
