2019 ICC Cricket World Cup fantasy league

Postby Durhamfootman » Tue May 14, 2019 11:19 pm

Here it is.

The one you've all been waiting for

No.... not the new series of Game of Thrones

Not even an old series of Steptoe and Son

But....the one........the only........the ICC Cricket World Cup (let that sink in for a moment and savour it)

and in England too, which a bonus because it means it won't drag on and on and on in case it over-runs and interferes unnecessarily with the Hundred next year (this will not be like the world cup in 2007 which actually only finished 2 weeks before the 2011 world cup started)

Rules

pick 15 players, then discard 4 of them, because 15 would just be silly. Then make sure they are all actually in the appropriate squads because you wouldn't want to waste any of your picks. Do not ask if you can make any substitutions once the competition has started as a refusal often offends. Do read the terms and conditions before posting your teams, if you can find any

Scoring

Batting

1 point for every run scored
A batsman scoring 50 will receive a 20pt bonus, with another 10pts for every further 50 runs scored
(ie. 50 = 20pts, 100 = 30pts, 150 = 40pts, 200+= 50pts)
A batsman scoring at least 20 runs, will receive.....
10 bonus pts for scoring at a strike rate of 80-99
20 bonus pts for scoring at a strike rate of 100-149
30 bonus pts for scoring at a strike rate of 150-199
40 bonus pts for scoring at a strike rate of 200+

Bowling
20pts per wicket
20 bonus pts for a 3fer
30 bonus pts for a 5fer
5 bonus pts per maiden over
A bowler who has bowled at least 3 overs will receive.....
10 bonus pts for an economy rate of <=6.0
20 bonus pts for an economy rate of <=5.0
30 bonus pts for an economy rate of <=4.0
(ie. an ER of 4.25 scores 20pts)

Fielding
10 points per catch or stumping
20 points per run out, or 10 points each, if two players share the responsibility
10 bonus points for 3 contributions with catches, stumpings or run outs.

Squads will be finalised on the 22nd May, so if you think Archer isn't in England's squad... think again! Vaughany and Freddie think that England should only have a squad with one player in it.... and it isn't Pietersen, because he's too busy saving the rhino (much to Ryan Harris' annoyance.... "Ah Jeez Kevin... will you ssip off and leave me alone... you're getting on me wick")
provisional squads can be found here https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/47804795


First match starts on 30th May at 10.30 BST, so teams are to be before the toss........ don't be the nit wit who forgets to put a team in... you'll only kick yourself later

Might be some changes as all the England players get injured.
