I really enjoyed doing Cricket XI’s free fantasy IPL game last season and did not clock it was starting earlier this year until a reminder from one of my regular fantasy games players, so thought I best get on with setting up my usual 2 Cricket XI leagues (Classic and Head to Head) again for this season’s iteration. Both leagues will be £5 entry (same as last season) and ’ Winner Takes All ’ affairs. The season lasts just over 9 weeks (and will have a total of 74 matches):
The reason for the extension is the IPL has expanded to 10 teams this season (from 8 last season).
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. 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 after Round 13 (so Rounds 14 - 16) are knock out rounds - for those teams that qualify. The eventual winner of the knockout final is crowned champion at the end of the tournament.
To make a little bit of interest and a prize for the winners’ skill (or luck) I am making both leagues £5 each to enter and both leagues are ‘Winner Takes All’.
People are welcome to join one or both leagues and I hope people will feel £5 is not much at all and give these leagues ago. The season starts (Round 1) Saturday, 14:00 GMT, 26th March so there’s very little time to go (just over 2 days).
Any one new to my fantasy money games just PM (Private Message) me from this forum requesting how to pay your entry fee and I’ll reply with details.
