Fantasy Big Bash League 2021/22 (CricketXI.com)

Hey All,

Australia’s domestic T20 cricket tournament is here. In a new move for me I am trailing a mixed classic ‘Open’ league where by people can choose to play for free or for money. So, all are welcome to join my Big Bash Classic Open style league. However, due to the nature of the league with a play-off format at the end means I feel it only fair to make my Head to Head league only a money league - otherwise paid players could be knocked out of post season at the expense of free players. So, to avoid that possibility am making the Head to Head league paid players only. So, any teams in the Head to Head league not paid for well be removed from the league just prior to the start of the tournament. Once the tournament has started, I will confirm how many paid teams are in the both the Classic league and Head to Head league here on this thread where I will also confirm the cash GBP prize pay outs for both leagues.

The Big Bash 2021/22 season lasts just under 8 weeks:

Sunday, 5 December 2021 – Friday 28 January 2022.

I’ve set up 2 leagues - one is an ‘open’ league where you’re all on a ladder based on your total fantasy points scored. The other is a ‘head to head’ type league where you play one other team from the league each round and you win, lose or tie. A win is 4 points, a Tie 2 points and a loss 0 points. That decides your position in the league with tie breakers to split teams such as points % (difference between points scored and points scored against you). In the ‘head to head’ league there are play offs over the final rounds for the teams that make it.

To make a little bit of interest for those that want to play for money the classic league has an optional entry fee of £5 and the head to head league has a compulsory entry fee of £5 to join and both leagues are ‘Winner Takes All’.

The Head to Head league needs 4 teams minimum to run - so 3 more on top of mine.

People are welcome to join one or both leagues and I hope people will feel £5 GBP is not much at all and decide to play for money. The season starts (Round 1) 08:15, 5th December (GMT) .

Please forward the link to this post to any friends or acquaintances you think might be interested - more the merrier (and bigger the prize pot hopefully).

If you don’t know the score regards paying (likely, if your new to my money games) just PM me from here with your e-mail address and I will send back details. You can partake from anywhere in the world - it’s not an issue.

Best regards,
