Using derogatory/swear words (Bangla/English) for your team name, your own name or user name will disqualify your team

HAHA! That's a bit harsh! What if you use a word that you don't know the meaning of ?

By the way: I think you should change "your name" to "board name" - that will clarify a lot of rules :)

Raj bhai, both of them (sizea and Abdus Sami Chowdhury) are fine. Their user id is Amara_korbo_joy and radicalsami, which is their discussion board user id also.

Orph is right, chainging the word "user name" to "board id" will remove the confusion.

Only 11 people now! Where is everybody, -100 for not signing up in Fantasy, :duh:

HAHA! That's a bit harsh! What if you use a word that you don't know the meaning of ?
If you don't know it, then its not a curse. :)

Not your fault thought, she typed 0956 instead of 0598, unless its not her. Tehsin bhai?

Tehsin
October 21, 2003, 08:58 PM
Dhora pore gelam, I knew I had to check the numbers. All I wanted to do is win.

Actually, she came in third the last time. I was way behind.

As for the famous five. Hopefully they will look into this. You may also put a note in the main fantasy page.

To keep it fair, once the series starts we can't take registration. But you will have an option to register during ODI series. Regsitration will be open again before start of ODI series.

At the end of test series top spot is occupied by "say" with 751 points, followed by "fwullah" with 723 points.

Teams that have mostly bowlers did well becase our bowlers shined throughout the test series.

Registration/update for ODI series will be active once the team is announced. So keep an eye on http://games.banglacricket.com and good luck.

Technically, I finished at number 6 and I will go ahead and give myself a pat in the back for that.

Holy Smoke....I Finished at number 10 :o:(

I was thinking that our batsmen can do a good job but they blew me away. Will never rely on BD Batsmen :mad:

Anyways, Congrats to Say and Fahmida.

Anywat to change a player now? One of the slot for a player in my team is getting wasted. I thought Monir would be in the team, as few news said but Unfortunately he was not there.

Nasif
November 8, 2003, 04:00 PM
Sorry ehsan, its too late now :(

Thats how the fantasy is :D, Monir might play in later games.

Here is the result of ENG vs BD Fantasy Game. It was interesting as most of the team's winning prospect was shattered by BD batsmen who aparently forgot how to bat during this series. Bowlers made big impact in fantasy points, as did Mushfiqur Rahman. Only a handful thought him as a good player at the start of the series but he has proved us wrong with his amazing performace. We hope he will continue this form as a solid all rounder. This will pave the way to kick Sujon off the team.

Here it goes...

As you can see, Say will pocket the $50 for winning the first ever sponsored Fantasy Game (thanks to Career Designs for sponsoring). Congrats to Say.

Thanks to others for playing. Don't worry, you will get consolation prize (shantona puroskar) just for participating. Your consolation prize is hyacinth flower or "Kochuri Pana" (its pride of Bangladesh and its everywhere :) ):

Don't loose hope, this is not the end. Next fantasy game will be BD vs. ZIM series. That will be your chance to snatch the victory away....

Just ignore the boos from the rest of the contestants, you have won fair and square. Doesn't look like that you even posted a team for the ODI, you were pretty confident, eh ?

CONGRATULATIONS on beating out about 45 competitors to win the england in bangladesh fantasy cricket league

Ok I won.. But somehow it isn't fun. It doesn’t feel like winning. The result/performance of the team is very disheartening. Nonetheless, thanks to all who encouraged. I hope we will have a much better series next time. I just got lucky - believing in Mushfiq earlier than most of the people.

Tehsin, I did change my team for the ODIs. From the test side, I dropped Kowshik ( as he was injured) and Rafique (wasn't sure how effective he was going to be in the shorter version of the game). I added Sumon and Hannan as I was hoping their run-drought would end.

Nasif, I don't see my name in the games page :)

thanks again..
