Bored Game : World T20 Fantasy League

by Aditya

Bored Members and Bored Friends,

Here is another reason to keep you glued to all the matches (including matches like West indies vs Ireland and Australia vs Bangladesh ) in the upcoming World T20 and cheer for players from other countries, introducing The Bored Game: World T20 Fantasy League. We had 41 teams contesting in the Bored IPL League on Cricinfo Fantasy. The World T20 starts TODAY and it's time we have another game between us.I love Fantasy Cricket and have been playing it for over 2 years now, having been a part of all the Bored Games, I have created a Bored League this time around. With 12 teams to choose from it will be a true test for a Fantasy player to pick the perfect XI. As Bored Member Achettup had done such a wonderful Job in explaining all there is to about Fantasy Cricket previously , it would be a waste of time trying to better it, so I will copy and edit wherever required :

Step 1) Create an account at Cricinfo's Fantasy Games page here

Step 2) Login to your account and find your way to the World of 20-20 page here

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, 2 Allrounders, 1 Wicketkeeper(s) and 3 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 country. Save your team selection.

Step 5) Now all you have to do is join the Bored Cricket Crazy Indians league. To do this, 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
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. That's 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! from time to time.

Please try to let us know if you're taking part at the latest before 10:30 PM on Friday, April 30th. 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 10:30 PM Friday April 30.
  2. After that you can make up to 20 changes to your teams at any time before the semi finals.
  3. After the Round Robin 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 6 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!
