(Please add this email address to your contact list. Some email account providers are treating emails from this address as junk or spam if you do not have this address as one of you contacts)
CREATING THE TEAM
When I have received registration email from 10 managers, I will send an email to all ten mangers informing that the player auction and creation of team can begin. All managers need to send me by email their choise of 15 players from the list of players available on the Player Auction page of this site and the amount of fictional money they want to spend on each player. For the purpose of this auction each manger will be allocated a budget of £15,000,000 fictional money.
After I have received offers from all ten managers, players will be allocated to managers using the following criteria.
1. If a player received only one offer, then that player will be allocated to the manger who made the offer at the value offered by the manager.
2. If a player received more than one offer, then that palyer will be allocated to the manager who made the highest offer at the value offered by that manager.
Then I will send email to each manger informing howmany successfull signings they have made, how many more players they need to sign to make up the squad of 15 and how much of their budget they have left to complete their signings. The list of players still waiting for an offer will be published on the player auction page of this site. Managers need to send their second offers by email and the above process will be repeated until all players have been allocated to all managers .
CREATING ADDITIONAL PLAYERS
In addition to 15 players signed through the auction as mentioned above, managers need to create additional 5 players to supplement their squad. To create these players, managers will be allocated 250 skill points. Also managers can buy additional skill points at the rate of 1 point for every £100,000 saved from the auction process. Further instructions about creating these players will be available when joining the league. Every week the playing eleven should consist at least 2 of these 5 players.
SELECTING THE HOME GROUND
After the completion of player auction managers need to submit their first three priorities of grounds they want to use as the homeground for their team. If a ground was requested by only one manager, that ground will be allocated to the manager who made the request. If any ground was requested by more than one manager then that ground will be allocated to the manager who guess the nearest score of a real iife international match which will be announced at the beginning of auction process and the unsuccessfull manager will be considered for their second choice ground and then for the third choice ground. At the end of this process any manager who was unsuccessful with all their three choices will be asked to make further three choices.
After the completion of player auction and ground selection, I will send an email to each manger with details of their team and manger need to submit their weekly order with the information available from the email. Each manager can get limited information about their opposition from this website as well. A weekly order should consist of following details.
Eleven players names in batting order .
Each player's batting and bowling aggression. (This should be a number between 0 and10 with 0 being the least aggressive and 10 being the most aggressive)
Team Batting and Bowling aggression (This also between 0 and 10 with being the 0 being the least aggressive and 10 being the most aggressive)
Names or batting position numbers of two opening bowlers.
Name or batting position number of the Wicket Keeper.
When I receive the order I will run matches for the week and send each mangers a result email with following details.

2.Breif Score card of other matches in the league.
3.Latest team guide of your team including any injury and morale of each player. (Injured players can not play in number matches spcified in the guide). Players with higher morale will perform better.
