CWXI Development League

Mr Mxyzptlk

Request Your Custom Title Now!
The Cricketweb XI will be starting a domestic league to help with selection of tour sqauds. Keep in mind this is not an international league.

It will be called the development league and it will comprise of minnow teams, 'A' teams and Youth teams playing against the CWXI Development Team. The team will allow players not contracted to go on a tour to keep their cricketing skills sharp by continuing to play in domestic cricket.

In addition, we will be introducing an injury system. This way, if a player gets injured or is out of form, he or she may be dropped and an 'in-form' player called up to replace him/her. The league is essentially Cricketweb XI's County Cricket. It will be called the Development League.

The League should begin after the current tour of South Africa and will be accompanied by the contracted squad being cut from 18 players to 15 for the next tour - to the West Indies. As such, the Developemnt League will be run in the WI at the time to save money (yes, we're cheap :P) in travel fees. Once again this is not an international league.

We encourage any new players to sign up to play for the Development Team.
I hope everyone understands the concept of this league and that people will sign up.

Yup this sounds really good , mxy and me been talking about it for a good while and thought about the negatives etc and the positives

This will be a really good thing and will see what ppl like Ump money , paid and neil etc to prove themselves into a team and give them a chance

it will also give them a chance to bat at a position of which they desire ( depending we nice enough to offer it ) so that they can prove themselves for that spot

eg say if CW XI need an opener and they play as opener and prove themselves they might just get a callup

From the next tour, we will be contracting players as follows:-

Min 2 tour contract.
Max 5 tour contract.

The captain and vice-captain will be contracted for 4 tours at a time. At the end of each 4-tour period, the Board will convene and decide on the fate of the capt./vc.

Max contract edited to 5 tours. I just talked to Lord and we arrived at this. Lang: if you have any objections or comments please, by all mean, let us know.

Every bowling avge over 100 will be approximated to 99 unless the person wishes to develop his or her bowling. In this case, it will be dropped to 60.

Yes Yes drop it to 60 :D :D

I have been working on my bowling and I did take a hatrick in the under 14's many years ago.

That was a good match 3 wickets and a 50no. At that level you had to retire at 50 witch really sucked :!(

The invitees for the Development tournament:-

Aus 'A', SA 'A', Eng 'A', NZ 'A', WI 'A', Zim 'A', Minnows XV.

The teams will play in 5-day and 50-over matchups. Teams will be playing for the Development Shield and indepth stats will be kept. We're hoping to get our own spot in the forum for the CWXI and the Development League.

India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have pulled their 'A' teams out of the tournament after failing to meet the deadline for the $500,000 entry fee.;)
