    Draft Game - Fantasy Cricket 2017

    This is both a draft and fantasy game where the winner will be decided by how their players produce across the year. To give a large enough pool of players for a draft, every international game in calendar year 2017 (Test, ODI, T20I) will be counted in the one competition. As an aside it should add interest to series that you wouldn’t have otherwise given much thought to.
    Scoring will be 1 point for every run, 20 per wicket and 5 per catch/stumping.

    The year will be broken into 4 three-month quarters (Q1 = Jan-Mar, etc) with a main draft in December, and minor changes before every quarter where you can cut guys who aren’t playing/performing and replace them with anyone else who hasn’t been picked (via a minidraft in reverse order of current standings).

    Participants will pick a squad of 14 players in given positions (see below), with the top 11 in each quarter contributing to your total so that you aren’t punished if up to 3 of your players don’t play much in that quarter for whatever reason. This will be done automatically and won’t be dependent on position.
    1 Opening Batsman OP
    2 Opening Batsman OP
    3 Middle Order Batsman MOB
    4 Middle Order Batsman MOB
    5 Middle Order Batsman MOB
    6 All Rounder AR
    7 Wicketkeeper WK
    8 Fast Bowler FB
    9 Fast Bowler FB
    10 Fast Bowler FB
    11 Spin Bowler SP
    12 Bowler Bowl
    13 Batsman Bat
    14 All Rounder AR

    To ease administrative burden for me I will define the positions of players in the near future.
    • Bowler can be either a FB or SP
    • Batsman can be either OP or MOB

    Given the size of the player pool I am looking for 10 participants with the patience to read this whole post, draft 14 rounds and then the interest to follow for the year with occasional input. I will update and post the scores every 2-4 weeks.

    The draft has a clear deadline of January 1. Given that a bit of research and schedule checking will be required more than latent knowledge I reckon we will aim for a start within 3 days. Normal draft rules of randomised order, reversed, then re-randomised each round will apply. 8 hours per pick – which may be adjusted if we get close to deadline.

    Obviously I realise that the calendar year is both a long time and doesn’t line up nicely with cricket seasons, but to give a large enough pool to support a reasonable draft, and to have an unambiguous start/end, this is how it is. If there are Tests that cross the boundary between 2 periods, matches will be attributed to the day that they are scheduled to start.

    I also realise that many fixtures have not yet been determined, which is another element of luck. I recommend starting research here: Live cricket | Current and future cricket series | ESPN Cricinfo

    Please post in if you are interested.

    one issue that i see though is how say england and india play a gazillion tests... perhaps make it an average points per match in a quarter for a player?

    Ahhh leave it to the drafters please. Let them think and build their teams by keeping all these points in mind.

    It is a known issue so i say its just part of the game - you just need to draft accordingly. I reckon it can be safely assumed Eng, Ind, SA & Aus will all play heaps of matches this year (and most years).
    Also I can comfortably handle totals in my spreadsheet which relies on cutting and pasting from cricinfo - averages would make it too time consuming to calculate.

    So as mentioned in the OP, i will list the player positions to make my database manageable. This is the list of players from the top teams (10 test teams + Ire, Afg since they play a stack of ODIs) based on who played a few games this year. If you want to pick someone else just nominate their appropriate category at the time. If you see someone who has retired, please feel free to let me know.
