Fantasy T20 Cricket World Cup 2024 - USA & West Indies (CricketXI) - £5 Money Leagues


image

Hey There,

I noticed CricketXI has got a fantasy T20 World Cup game up, which starts June 1st and runs through to the Final on June 29th. The tournament will begin in Dallas on Saturday June 1 as co-hosts USA take on Canada (1.30am on Sunday June 2 UK time). So, I thought why not do my usual couple of small stakes ‘Winner Takes All’ £5 money leagues (Classic and Head-to-Head) on the tournament. The whole tournament / fantasy game will be over inside a month.

I’ve set up 2 leagues - one is an Open Classic style type 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 the top 4 teams make the final knock out rounds (8 - SF / 9 - F) to decide the Champion.

To make a little bit of interest and a prize for the winners’ skill (or luck) I am making each league £5 to enter and as I stated before both leagues are ‘Winner Takes All’. So, the more entrants the bigger the prize - so please feel free to forward this e-mail on if you think you know anyone else that might like to join in.

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 a go. The game starts (Round 1) 01:30am UK time, 2nd June 2024 so there’s only a few days left to play with your teams’ line-up (there’s a trade amnesty until first game starts) and please spread the word - recruit your friends, acquaintances, work colleagues and please do tell any other cricket fans about my league. I do appreciate anyone’s help I can get to grow the entry pool. Also please note local time in USA the tournament starts at 7:30pm Saturday 1st June.

The Head-to-Head league can have a maximum of 16 teams so that is first come first served (but to run it needs a minimum of 4 entrants - so 3 more other than myself). Also, due to bad experiences with some of my recent fantasy money leagues with people joining and not paying or strangers joining (great) but making no attempt to contact me to pay entry fee (bad) I will now delete anyone’s team who has no history with me of partaking in my fantasy money leagues just before the tournament starts if they have not paid. So, if your new or not a regular player of my fantasy money games then the onus is on you to settle up before the game starts.

Usual method for payment - if you don’t know what that is or have forgotten just PM me from here (the TFP forum) and I will respond with the low down.

If we end up with an odd number of teams in the Head-to-Head league the site will put one team on a bye each round. This is not ideal as sometimes having byes people play an unequal number of matches depending on the pool size of the league. So just a heads up in case this occurs you are for warned. I just prefer to fill the league if we can and have an even number of entrants and then this is a moot point.

Lastly if you have any queries about the game itself or game site then the only way to contact ‘CricketXI’ it seems is via Facebook or X - just search ‘CricketXI’ on either platform and you will see the sites distinctive red and white cricket ball logo.
