Hey folks. Phase 3 of the Fantasy League starts tonight with the Bangladesh v New Zealand game. Once again, you are all allowed 4 transfers. Remember to complete them atleast 15 minutes before the game starts. Choose wisely everyone, especially those who have some serious catching up to do. For current standings, click here!

Default Point systems

Who came up with all these ?

- 7. Scoring. Players will score points for matches in the 2003 Cricket World Cup as follows: BATTING: Every 10 runs scored = 1pt, Every 50 runs scored = extra 3pts, Player out for no runs (excluding bowlers) = minus 2pts. Scoring Rate (20 runs minimum): 0.00-49.99 runs per 100 balls = minus 1pt, 50.00-74.99 runs per 100 balls = 0pts, 75.00-99.99 runs per 100 balls = 2pts, 100 runs per 100 balls and over = 4pts. BOWLING: Wicket taken = 2pts, Every 3 wickets taken = extra 3pts. Economy Rate (5 overs minimum): 3.50 or less runs per over = 4pts, 3.51-4.50 runs per over = 2pts, 4.51-5.50 runs per over = 0pts, 5.51-6.50 runs per over = minus 1pt, 6.51 runs per over or more = minus 2pts. FIELDING: Catch = 1pt, Stumping = 2pts, Direct Run Out = 2pts, Indirect Run Out = 1pt per fielder.

Why the hell did you take a Bangladeshi player in your team in the first place? What were you thinking? Actually, you picked two! Did you really think Rokon was going to outscore Lara?

irrational exuberance...

actually, i just wanted to see how they fared in comparison, wasnt really all that serious to begin with. But now that they have proven they well and truly suck...i am not doing any more experiments.

Default bangladeshi players

for bd players, what was required was a control experiment. thus i have 2 teams, one with and one without. while my bangali-free (no kapalis, no gangulis) team will ultimately beat the board member formerly known as habibul-fan, my team with 2 deshis is languishing in second last place. even my son, currently in last place because he was disinterested early on and thus didn't have any phase one points, may beat that team.

Default I CONCEDE

You only have 3 players to change in this phase, I have 5, we can only change 4.

Mathematcially I won't be able to do it.

I concede. Well played.

I concede as well. I have 7 players to change! I was sure SA would go through and WI. So I have two players from each, while I didn't pick any NZ players because I thought they would be the ones to miss out. Almost got it right as well, if SA had just scored one more run! Also, I thought England would go through after beating Pakistan so comprehensively. Again rain had to spoil that by washing out Pak-Zimbs. There is on way that Pak would have gotten the required RR to go through, but at the same time, they probably would have beaten Zimbabwe. Oh well, hopefully I'll have better luck next time.

no i think ganguly was an allrounder and i couldn't get a new one so i went with sehwag. actually i should get different players from you in the last round - only chance to win i suppose.

Default Rules

Thanks to the god forsaken rules, most of us are stuck with players who are already out of the cup. In a way, it makes sense, it a test of our prediction skills and we missed out on predicting who will go through to the next round.

Anyways, I see that my better half is kicking my arse horribly. I must plan sabotage (I know her password, muhahahaha) or i won't hear the end of it ... :0
