PICKING A TEAM
Here's a quick team selection guide:
Step 1: Name your team
Get creative and choose a name for your team. Remember, keep it clean!
Step 2: Select players from the player list
You can opt to include either one or two all-rounders, choose your formation wisely, to give yourself the best chance of beating the competition. You will also be asked to select a batting and bowling captain who will have their scores doubled.
Each player has been valued by our team of experts, based on their likelihood to score points. The combined value of your players must not exceed 100.
Step 3: Create or join your own private Mini League
1) Click on 'My Mini Leagues' from the menu
2) Give your Mini League a name. If you wish the Mini League to be private you may also add a password. Otherwise, anyone will be able to join the League.
3) Use the 'Invite' facility to email invitations to your colleagues to join your League
If you wish to join an existing league, you'll just need the Mini League name and password (if it's a private league) from the Chairman that created the league. Simply go to the 'My Mini Leagues' section and enter the name into the search bar. Then click 'Join' next to the correct Mini League. If the League is a private one, you will then be prompted to enter the password.
Changing your Team
Given the number of fixtures in this competition, users can make UNLIMITED transfers until the end of the competition, as long as the overall value of your team stays at 100 or less. Transfers must be made before the scheduled start of the first game of the day, to come into effect that day. You can also change your two captains as often as you like too, so don't hesitate to ditch your under-performers for the newest superstars.
