Fantasy Cricket – Natwest T20 Blast
[three_fourth padding=”0 20px 0 0″]
[/three_fourth]We at FF247 are delighted to announce we will again be running a league for the ever popular T20 Blast which kicks off this Friday, 15th May. The competition itself has been launched and looks as fun as ever with many of the rules and scoring the same as last season. The group Gameweeks start every Friday with the final gameweek commencing on Friday 24th July, the Quarter Final gameweek begins 12th August and the competition as a whole climaxes with the brilliant Finals Day (weather dependent!) on Saturday 29th August. In other words, our summer is sorted, our lack of FPL pain is eased with some good old cricket!
The link for the competition is as follows: t20blast.fantasy.ecb.co.uk/
If you played last season you will just need to log in again – if you didn’t then registration is easy and free!
The code for the FF247 League code is 1402-284 and is called FF247. This is a classic league starting from Gameweek 1 through to Finals Day. Very easy, whoever has most points at the end wins!
Potty is running a H2H league, identical to the FPL one – each week you will play someone different in H2H format. The code is 1369-630 and the league is called Swing and Spin.
Our friend on twitter @FPL_Fly has a unique twist on this with his own league featuring an actual player! Daryl Mitchell stars for Worcestershire and will be participating in this league so if you want to pit your wits against someone who really should know the game inside out then it’s league code 5710-1060.
Playing the game
All the rules for the game are found on this link, so take some time to read through them in order to devise your strategy. There are also double gameweeks, blank gameweeks, points hits for extra transfers, strategic captaincy options, the weekly decision on which player to leave on your bench and of course your wildcard!
The T20 Blast promises to be the best ever with many of the overseas stars of the recent World Cup coming over to play such as Chris Gayle, Brendan McCullum, Glenn Maxwell, James Faulkner, Kumar Sangakkara and Shahid “Boom Boom” Afridi. So sign up or sign in and get selecting your initial squad with an earlyy hint from us…. GW1 is a DGW for Essex, Gloucestershire, Surrey and Sussex and a blank gameweek for Somerset and Worcestershire.
