Default Fantasy Cricket: Bangladesh in Zimbabwe ODI Series, Final Time March 5, 2004

The new fantasy cricket is open today. Please visit:
http://www.banglacricket.com/games

It is completely new system. If you face any problem, errors or find any bugs please post here.

You will have to create a new accout there before you can create your team.

Good luck and we hope you will love the new system.

Nasif

PS: Deadline for team creation for the 5 ODI series is March 5, 2004.

Nasif,

Manjarul (both Monju and Rana) is spelled wrong.

I tried to choose Rana, but my team is showing Monju..

can you take a look at the matters?

Beleive it or not, Manjarul is the official spelling in CricInfo!

thanks Nasif..

Maybe we should override Cricinfo this time cause we know better than cricinfo in this case. We should make sure we spell manjARUL not manjURAL

Its given on the main page, Feb 19 12:01AM US CST. The game would have started by then, but few hours isn't a big deal.

On future series cutoff time will be one day ahead of the game.

Thanks. I hope we can kick CricketPagol's butt now. I heard you have to pay to play fantasy there! I can't seem to find their fantasy on the site, if anybody know where it is, let me know the link. I want to take a look at the "pro".

Nasif Bhai great job
Three cheers to everyone's team.

But there are very few teams nearly 40-50 where as we have 300+ members in this board!!

So we have to popularyze this game.
Nasif bhai did the toughest job to make that and what we have to is just to pass the news around. Thus we have more competetors and the more competetors there are the more the game gets exciting.

So please encourage others to join here.
Rajputro bhai and others concerned , could we place a giff in the logo about fantasy cricket? (as BanglaCricket where true..belongs join banglaCricket play fantasy game)

Thanks Orph and Shafi.

Yes, I am quite disappointed with the turnout. I hoped for 100+ Anyway, 50 isn't bad either.

I have quite a few plans to make it more exciting. Here is one in short:

1. Every cricketer will have a "value" assigned to them. This value is the cost that one will have to "pay" to get this cricketer in his/her team. This value will be higher for better players, eg. Bashar, Masri or Rafique; and lower for not so good players like Monju, Khaled Mahmud etc.

2. At the start of a game every manager will receive a set number of points, eg: 500. They can spend these point to purchase a player. Obviously you have to balance your within the cost. Thus, you can't all good players, because that will exceed your points.

3. When a series has started and some of your cricketers aren't doing so good, you can substitute other cricketers. You will get a set number of substitution for the whole series, eg. 3. Now, when you substitute a cricketer you will forfeit all the points that is contirbuted by that specific player to your team; and you will have to pay current "market" value of the player that you want to accquire. The new cricketer that you accquire will only contribute to your team's points from that day onward. His previous points will not be added to your team.

4. Value of a cricketer will be determined automatically from his last Test/ODI performance. E.g. Getting 50 runs in a match may increase a player's value by 5 points, a century may increase his/her value by 10 points. Similarly if the batsman gets out for a duck it may reduce his value by 10 point; or getting out before 10 may reduce point by 5 etc. Similar rules will be applied to the bowler. Good performace will increase value, and bad performace will decrease value. Good fielding by a player will also contribute to players value.

5. From one series to the next you will carry certain % of points from your previous team. Eg. 10% carry will get you extra 10points for every 100 points from your previous fantasy team. This extra 10 points will add up to start up point of 500, so you will now have 510 points to get cricketers.

In current fantasy structure you just select your players and do nothing. Which can be quite boring. If we adopt the above system it will get quite exciting. Because to win you will have to participate and manage your team wisely. Just selecting your team probably won't win you the max points.

All this in planning stage. If enough of us here like it then we can go for it. So post your opinion.

all sounds too good... the sub and player buying system is common in most fantasy games... the carrying over points is something totally new... (atleast I havent seen anywhere before) and the idea is really cool... I like the carrying over points thing a lot...
