    Cricket Web Forumer World Cup - Information and Discussion

    I had an idea the other day, to run a simulated World Cup with CricketWeb members filling up the teams.

    For those unaware of how that'd work - you sign up as, for example, an English opening batsmen and, before England play India, I simulate England v India as a curtain-raiser to the main event using a computer program. You open the batting in that game against silenstriker and Cevno who have signed up as Indian opening bowlers. It'd follow the same schedule as the real world cup. You don't have to do anything after you sign up other than check your progress.

    There would definitely be some problems filling up some of the teams (getting eleven Kenyan posters could be a struggle, for example), but we could be a bit liberal with eligibility, or use filler players, or maybe even just play sixes depending on sign-ups.

    At the moment I'd just like to get a rough idea of how much interest there'd be in it, who'd be interesting in captaining/selecting a nation's team/squad for each game, and any other problems people can think of.

    EDIT: Oh, and if anyone is eligible or willing to play for a more obscure nation, that'd be good information at this point too.

    EDIT2: Sign-ups: http://www.cricketweb.net/forum/worl...-sign-ups.html

    Yet to be determined. Obviously what you signed up as play a part, but aside from that - maybe activity in this thread? Dunno. Definitely don't want to promote spam on CricketWeb, even if it's just in one thread. Maybe I could use total forum posts at the beginning of the tournament - that'd prevent people from spamming but allow some differentiation of abilities. I'll come up with something as the situation arises anyway; I don't even know if we'd have enough yet.

    Agree.

    Though that could lead to some weird choices.

    That could work,I guess.

    Though maybe if there is a way to differentiate post counts in the Cricket forums or the WC forum would be good.


    Also ,i think you should have 11 members per team,as finding more to fill all the teams would be difficult.

    And perhaps you could fill in all the unfill slots with real players ,if it is not too much trouble.

    Btw, what method did they use in the Development league?

    Ashwell can play for Zimbabwe, I reckon.

    Happy to take part for whichever team. NZ or England (and Wales) I'd be eligible for.
