Default World Cup 2015 fantasy game(ICC fantasy Edition)

Two options:
1) Inhouse. You pick a squad. We would make rules. Option to change squad after the preliminaries for Quarter finals. Change squad for Semis and finals.

2) Cricinfo: See below for rules. Nadim has started a tournament. You can get a pin ONLY via private message.

The Prize is the bragging rights at BC. Unless Tehsin or Mahmood wants to do something special.

What say you?

Let us do the inhouse and establish some rules. If cricinfo starts a game some of us will join your league. Let me think of few things about the rules I would post it separately.

Participation: Open to all BC members who have minimum post of 10+. Must post your WC 11 before the WC starts. If the edit date time stamp goes over you are DISQUALIFIED.

BD players: You have to have 3 BD players in your squad. Else your team will not be counted. This is a Bangla Cricket forum. It becomes even more challenging that way.

Squad combinations: Open. You can have 11 bowlers,11 batsmen,11 Wicket keepers or 11 Allrounders. Free. Anyway you like it.

Captain: You have to select a captain. Your captain's points will be doubled each game he plays.

Transfers: No changes during the 1st two rounds. You will have the option to change an injured player who is out of the tourney in a separate post. Post date stamp must be before the game the new player is playing.

(Stage 2) Semis and Finals:
You will have the chance to recreate your team before the Semis with new players.

Scores will be calculated as the above tables indicate. The scores will be updated after end of each round. Stage 1 will have 7 rounds. Stage 2 will have 2 rounds.

Best of Luck.

Mijan bhai, I'm all for in house. I'll do cricinfo if nadim starts one as well. I have a suggestion, for bowlers econ make it minimum 5 overs instead of 3. That will weed out rank part timers but keep guys like riyad, Williamson who aren't quite true all rounders.

Icc will have one so that means cricinfo will have one for sure. Cricinfo one is much is easier to use so lets wait for that before we start the ICC fc.

Lets go with either Cricinfo or ICC. An inhouse one will be too complicated for a big tournament like WC. One needs to change player everyday and there will be so many games going on.

^ I agree. Its too much work. I enjoyed doing it during BPL, it was a much smaller tournament so a lot less players to worry about.

I know everyone is really excited about our first match against Afghanistan, so I will come up with a prediction game only for the first match. Maybe 15-20 questions type of thing. Different points for different questions based on difficulty. For example: Who will win the toss (BD or AFG)? Will Shakib score 50 runs and get 2 wickets (Yes or No)? How will Tamim get out (Run out or any other way)? and so on.

TBH, this sort of fantasy stuff only make sense if you have virtual cash. Lot of these other newer forums have it. I think I asked for this before. That would make bidding, fantasy leagues, fantasy cricket, predictions etc more fun and meaningful.

I didn't make the rules, T_E did. I just asked him to tweak it from 10 to 1000. If you saw "Major League Cricket" you'd know why.

Nothing personal I should add. Either 1000 post or been a member for at least a year.
