The classic sound score match apk mod 1.21 of leather on willow will soon blend into the buzz of the summer season once more. Now is the time to plan a fantastic start to the new cricket season! Typically cricket matches take place once a week and provide a great opportunity to catch up with all your cricket mates and supporters at the cricket club. However a new way to encourage player interaction and plenty of banter even during non-match days is to go social online by creating a Club Fantasy Cricket League. Sports social networking site tourlegends offers a free application which enables cricket fans & players to create and manage a fantasy cricket league within their club or amongst friends.
Similar to the Fantasy Cricket Leagues related to the IPL, players are assigned a value between 1 and 10 (10 = the better player). A player's value is based on the ability of the player to score points through 'real-life' bowling, batting and fielding performances. Cricket club members then select their fantasy eleven from the list and compete against each other to see who was able to pick the most successful team.
To award points the league creator inputs the 'real life' performances of players into tourlegends which then automatically calculates how many points each player has scored, updates teams with the appropriate points and refreshes league tables. In addition the application calculates the bowling and batting averages as well as the total number of catches, maidens, ducks and stumpings by player and by team. The latter is useful if you've got players from multiple cricket teams in the same fantasy cricket league and it will give the statistics anoraks a nice breather!
The application also allows for players to exchange banter with each other on the fantasy cricket league competition message board as well as to send virtual trophies and gifts to weekly/monthly winners and overall champions. To add additional spice to the Fantasy Cricket League, players can be asked to pay to play with some or all of the takings going towards the prize money, club or charity fundraiser.
To keep up the momentum throughout the cricket season, the league organiser should arrange transfer windows during which players can be swopped in and out of the fantasy cricket teams. The application makes it very easy to manage transfer windows: the fantasy cricket league organiser simply selects a date range and sets the maximum number of players that can be swopped.
The start of the cricket season is clearly the best time to get a Club fantasy cricket league started, so with the Southern Hemisphere gearing up for cricket action let's get the banter going both on the pitch and online!
