Points assigned to players - Aus/Ind vs Pak/Eng
The points (7-15 & the letter rank A-E) assigned to player for Pak-Eng series are pretty stiff as compared to points assigned to Aus-Eng series. Let me show you the comparison:
1. Total points.
Aus-Ind Series: 354 points assigned to 32 players which is 11.1 point per player.
Pak-Eng Series; 315 points assigned to 31 players which is 10.1 points per player.
This means the players for Eng-Pak series are more expensive...for the total spending points of 125 each for both series.
So can you please increase the total available points from 125 to 135 or lower the cost for each player.
Not convince yet? Let me give you a few more differences;
2. Number of Players in each category for both series.
Category Points Nbr of Players in Ind-Aus Series Nbr of players in Pak-Eng Series A 15 3 3 B 13 2 8 C 11 10 10 D 9 11 9 E 7 5 2 Total 31 32
As you can see there are 8 player in B category for Pak-Eng series but only 2 in Ind-Aus series.
3. Some individual rankings.
Team Type Name Cat Pts IND WK Dhoni B 13 AUS Bat Ponting B 13 PAK Bat Hafeez B 13 PAK Bat Younis B 13 PAK Bowl Ajmal B 13 ENG Bat Trott B 13 ENG Bowl Bresnan B 13 ENG Bowl Swann B 13 ENG Bowl Broad B 13 ENG WK Prior B 13 IND Bat Laxman C 11 IND Bat Dravid C 11 IND Bat Gambhir C 11 IND Bowl Zaheer C 11 IND Bowl Ishant C 11 IND Bowl Ojha C 11 AUS Bat Clarke C 11 AUS Bowl Siddle C 11 AUS Bowl Patnson C 11 AUS WK Haddin C 11 PAK Bat Azhar C 11 PAK Bat Misbah C 11 PAK Bat U.Akmal C 11 PAK Bowl U. Gul C 11 PAK Bowl Rhaman C 11 PAK Bowl Wahab C 11 ENG Bat Struass C 11 ENG Bat KP C 11 ENG Bowl Tremlet C 11 ENG Bowl Finn C 11
How can Dravid, Laxman, Gambhir & Clarke (from Ind-Aus) be in the same category C ....as Azhar Ali, Misbah, Umar Akmal (may not even play)?
How can Hussey and Farhat be in the same category (D)?
So.. can you please re-evaluate the points for player in Pak-Eng series?

The points for all the players have been revamped over the last few weeks, unfortunately we cannot change points when series are in progress so not all of the players have been updated as yet (Dale Steyn is currently a D ranking)
As for the current rankings, that is an effect of England being the best side around, which has come about because a lot of players have been performing at the same time. As for the specific example of Hafeez, it's been argued that on current form he's one of the best openers around, and he can also bowl pretty effectively at times, so he has a higher ranking.
Looking at your questions, I would say that Trott and Pietersen are borderline B/C as well, so I've put them down a bit.
The idea of Fantasy Cricket is that it is meant to be a challenge to select using the limit of points to play with, otherwise everyone would have the same team, and I don't think any changes are possible now without messing up the system (and disadvantaging people who've already selected).
125 points averages out at 9 C's and 2 B's, if you want more higher value players, pick some lower value players!

The feedback we've had to date is that most people prefer the nature of the rankings adjustment so it becomes more difficult and challenging to select a team.
