Fantasy Cricket has returned to Papplewick & Linby this pre-season, with some exciting new features.
Like last season, managers will have their chance to select XI players with as many free transfers as they wish, before the Week 1 cut off at Midday on Saturday 14th April. However, the make up of the teams are far more flexible this year, so captains can pick a maximum of 5 batters (instead of 4), up to 3 all rounders and up to 5 bowlers. This added flexibility will undoubtedly add a new strategic element for Managers to consider this season.
Another new feature is the 'real time' change in player values. This means that when a player is in a rich vein of form and scoring big points, their value will increase. Equally, if duck, follows duck, players can expect to see their value change in the opposite direction.
The final new feature to accompany the 'WILDCARD' which allows a manager to make as many free transfers as they please when played during any given gameweek (1 per manager), is the 'TRIPLE CAPTAIN' feature. This does what it says on the tin and instead of 'doubling' a captain's points load, times it by 3.
Points will be scored for all NPL and Bassetlaw games commencing 14th April (including the 1st XI's NPL Challenge Cup match vs Wollaton.)
