Draft Game - Fantasy Cricket 2021

Teuton

International Vice-Captain
After an interrupted 2020, the fantasy draft comp is going around again in 2021, even if the international calendar is going to be reduced and in a constant state of flux.

For those who haven't been involved in the past, 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 2021 (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 Any

To ease administrative burden for me I will define the positions of players in the near future. A number of players have changed designation since last year so check the list I will post soon.

• 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 10-12 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 in a few days time. 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 most fixtures have not yet been determined, which is another element of luck. Expect that series will be continually added as the year progresses, sometimes following the FTP, sometimes not. The amount that each team played in total wasn't surprising.

Past winners:
2017 – NUFAN
2018 – Randycricfreak
2019 – anil1405
2020 - TBD (BoyBrumby currently leading)

Post in if interested

Here is the player list with positions, and how many points they have scored so far in 2020 for illustrative purposes:
While it does not include every single player that played this year, it is the vast majority from the major teams. If you want to pick someone else (including someone just about to debut) you still can - I will just need to add him to my database.

Teuton

International Vice-Captain
There are 3 tours about to start which hopefully points to a reasonable amount of cricket in 2021.

An extra 2 participants would be great, i am looking to kick off the draft next Monday.

a question that came up from last year....

"at the moment my query only includes test nations plus Netherlands & Scotland. If someone from another nation is drafted i can add them to the query.
But to keep it manageable for me as an admin i will introduce a rule that you can only draft from teams with ODI status. Though i will only add those other countries to the query if someone decides to draft a player from them. I really don't have the time to change my spreadsheet in multiple places if someone drafts a guy from Belize or Belgium for their 2 "T20I"s. "

That screws up my plans for 1st pick! :fear:.

In all seriousness that seems very reasonable, can imagine I'll only end up considering players from Test-playing nations plus a few known names from Associate cricket personally.
