Game Guide - How to Play
Now you've got even more reason to keep track of events in the ICC World Twenty20 - it can help you on your way to some of the fantastic prizes on offer in ESPNcricinfo Fantasy World T20.
So if you want to add that extra bit of spice to the ICC World Twenty20, and at the same time as giving yourself a chance to take home some fantastic prizes, then read on...
The total prize pool is worth over USD10,000! Click here for a full breakdown.
The overall standings are split into two leaderboards, called sub-leagues*. There will be one sub-league for India, and one sub-league for USA, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand. All other users (i.e. those who do not reside in any of those countries) will not qualify for prizes and will need to select 'Other' when prompted to choose a sub-league.
Prizes are awarded to the top teams in each sub-league for the full duration of the ICC World Twenty20, as well as for the two individual game phases - the group stages and the Super Eights/knockouts.
* The sub-league you choose must be strictly based on where you reside, which will need to be validated before delivery of prizes. Please refer to the Terms and Conditions for full details.
Selecting Your Team
To start picking your team, you'll need to log in. You first need to register your personal details by entering your email address and password (even if you have entered previous Cricinfo fantasy games), and on subsequent visits, simply log in with these details. Click here to register.
You must select your 11 man team (with one player designated as your captain) using a budget of one million dollars, with no more than six players from any one country, ensuring that it complies with one of the three specified player combinations.
