    Icon3 CW Stock Exchange Project

    A good way to show the fluctuations of a players 'favourability' is to index them like a stock market. Like companies on the stock exchange, a players value will go up and down depending on a number of factors.

    Form undoubtedly plays the biggest part in the trending of a players value, however these aren't the only factors. Injuries, discipline, career life cycle are just some of the variables which play a part in determining a players value.

    I have come up with an idea to provide a stock exchange to discuss and i guess map a players career trajectory. I have started with the Australian team.

    Australian players share price value (pre tour of India price shown in brackets)

    David Warner - 12.60 (14.50)
    Ed Cowan - 9.80 (8.20)
    Phil Hughes - 10.50 (13.30)
    Shane Watson - 10.70 (18.90)
    Michael Clarke - 27.50 (28.90)
    Matthew Wade - 6.30 (8.50)
    Moises Henriques - 5.50 (3.20)
    Mitchell Starc - 12.20 (13.40)
    James Pattinson - 20.30 (steady)
    Peter Siddle - 14.50 (15.90)
    Nathan Lyon - 11.50 (13.50)
    Xavier Doherty - 3.20 (4.10)
    Brad Haddin - 11.30 (10.50)
    Jackson Bird - 11.40 (12.00)
    Steve Smith - 10.60 (5.50)
    Usman Khawaja - 4.50 (9.50)
    Mitchell Johnson - 4.50 (6.50)


    I welcome discussion surrounding these prices and changes in price as well as calling upon people to do a price list for other countries or players (doesn't necessarily have to be international players, however players who are merely state level should be priced accordingly).

    The goal is to have a comprehensive list of all the major players in international and domestic cricket.

    Please use my pricing as a guide if you want to price your own team, for example don't put Kane Williamson as $30 considering Michael Clarke is only at 27.5.


    CW STOCK EXCHANGE - THE GAME (an optional extra)

    This is a simple premise that works the same way that a stock exchange works, or indeed a fantasy sports competition works, in that value of players fluctuate depending on their recent performance or other variables. The idea is to make the most money after you are given an allowance to invest. Each player is assigned a sum of money to invest in the stock exchange. At the end of every week (interval negotiable), players values will be updated to reflect their current worth.

    Ideally you want to buy low and sell high. However for every batch (not every single) of transactions you make there will be a brokerage fee incurred, to prevent constant trading.

    There will be a time frame (for example two months) and everyone starts at the same time with the same amount of money. You can make as little or as many trades as you want, and at the end of that period, the player with the most money will win.

    You can buy as many shares in a player as you want (depending on your budget). So you can say you want to buy 10 Michael Clarkes and 4 Warners for example.

    I won't be running this because I cbf, but it's an option if there ever is a comprehensive list of player values is established

    Cool concept.

    Agree with pretty much every price but perhaps Henriques may have either gone higher post-India or started lower pre-India. I think the change would have been slightly more dramatic.

    So how are the values calculated?

    I made them up. But I'm sure there would be a more scientific way of calculating adjustments.

    That list would also have to be continually updated.

    When I saw you post 'cricket stock' earlier in that other thread I immediately thought of this idea, even had a short chat with PEWS about it.

    Khawaja dropping 5 without playing a game . Accurately reflects where he stands at the moment.

    I reckon it would have gone down because his name took a bit of a battering by being dropped. It showed that maybe the management don't have 100% confidence that he is test quality in the long term.

    Yeah as I said in the post, it doesn't necessarily have to be form related. And I think him not playing a game on a tour of that nature says plenty.

    Pattinson over-priced IMO. Rate the guy and all, but seems a bit over-valued comparatively

    Also, I think you need to raise the prices overall as what about guys who aren't in the team but have a hope of getting in there.

    If I wanted to take a punt on some shares in Rob Quiney or Steve O'Keefe, I'd expect them to be lower than these numbers, but much lower and you'd be paying me to take the shares... Though, on second thoughts...
