by achettup

Right, you've seen that BCC! will be creating their Bored Game: Fantasy Cricket League and you would love to take part, but you've never played in a fantasy game before and don't know how to go about it. Never Fear, BCC! Bored Guide is here.. With our XX step guide, you'll have a good team in no time and be one step closer to winning that fantastic Bored Rolling Fantasy Champion Badge!

Step 1) Create an account at cricinfo's fantasy games page here.

Step 2) Login to your account and find your way to the Fantasy Champion's Trophy page here (not the pick 'em)

Step 3) Click on Create Team. On the new page Click on the -> next to the player's price to select them as part of your team.

Step 4) You have to pick 11 players within your budget of $1,000,000. You can pick three types of team combinations:
  • 4 Batsmen, 2 Allrounders, 1 Wicketkeeper(s) and 4 Bowlers
  • 5 Batsmen, 1 Allrounders, 1 Wicketkeeper(s) and 4 Bowlers
  • 4 Batsmen, 3 Allrounders, 1 Wicketkeeper(s) and 3 Bowlers
Choose your players, keeping in mind how points are scored (read more here), select a trump player (who will earn double points) and give your team a name in the Enter Team Name field. Remember that you can select a maximum of six players from a particular country. Save your team selection.

Step 5) Now all you have to do is join the Bored Cricket Crazy Indians league. To do this, either send us an email at or leave a comment here, telling us which email address you used to create your fantasy league team.**

Step 6) We will then send an email (via cricinfo) to you containing a unique LPIN code. Now login to you fantasy league account on cricinfo and go to your team's page. Under "Leagues" on the left sidebar, click on Join League. Then enter the unique LPIN code that we sent to you via email.**

** Alternatively, immediately after creating your team, you can click on Join League and use this unique LPIN code: 90627-697043fe4690d875
Please let me know if you were able to do this.

Step 7) We will then approve your team's entry into our Bored Game: Fantasy Cricket Challenge. Thats it, you should now be part of the league and be able to see all the other people who are taking part and the teams they've selected. Do let us know if you have any problems creating a team or joining the the league.

We will update the scores of all teams in the league right here on BCC! after every game.

Please try to let us know if you're taking part at the latest before 5:30pm on Tuesday Sep 22nd. Don't worry about not picking the perfect team and waiting to register only after you've done that. As described below, there is plenty of time to make changes. What is more important is that we register your team name with the Bored Cricket Crazy Indians league as early we can.

A Few Useful Notes:

  1. Before the start of the first game, you can make unlimited changes to your team. The cut off time to make these unlimited changes is 6pm Tuesday Sep 22nd.
  2. After that you can make upto 12 changes to your teams at any time before the semi finals.
  3. After the group stages, you can once again make unlimited changes to your team, so that you pick from only those teams that have made it to the semis.
  4. Once the first semifinal starts, you are allowed to make only 4 changes to the end of the tournament.
  5. You will usually get half an hour between the toss and the start of the match to find out who the final 11 players are. Use this time to substitute a player who might be dropped, because once the game starts, the team is "locked in" and if you haven't picked your substitute in time he will not score points!
So there you go, you should now be an expert on how to join Bored Game: Fantasy Cricket League. So go ahead and make a team, and see if you can beat the best on Bored.

Alright, so I guess I didn't use the LPIN and when I saw I wasn't in your league I did it today. Hope it's fine since we don't have any money on the line :)
