World Cricket - 2017-18: November 23, 2017 to March 30, 2018


This will be the 14th edition of World Cricket...

Nobody has ever retained their title in the 13 years this comp has been run! confused frown .... N-Bomb will start as the defending champion, hoping to break the jinx. paper_aero and srini701 were also on the last podium. Howie72 is on a 4-year spoonless streak, though he still has some way to go before challenging the 77 rounds (and over 5 years) of N-Bomb.

We will mostly have Australia, New Zealand, England, and South Africa in action this season, along with some matches of India, Pakistan, and West Indies. Only 14-15 rounds till the end of March, with more Test matches than ODIs this season.

You will as usual pick 5 players for Test matches and 6 (or more) for ODI series from the list of players I will provide and score as many points as the runs/wickets by your selected player. A carefully chosen Trump player can double your points and boost your scores considerably. If you are not a regular visitor to the forums here, you can still lodge a team at the beginning of a series and allow it to score for you till a new series comes about. The new "super-sub" rule will continue to allow you to score for any player who you may pick but doesn't play...

Most threads won't be up till a few days before a match/series and the comp may also involve some unannounced series and some big rounds in between (where 2 matches start on same/close by dates).

9 people each played the last 2 seasons (2016-17 and 2015-16), while 10 turned up for 2014-15. Hoping to better the participation numbers and to a good, fun competition...

  • Welcome Back to yet another edition of World Cricket! The same 9 from last season have lined up. No drop-outs, no newcomers, no returnees frown

  • After an absorbing first innings when both teams toe-to-toe, England collapsed in the second innings and Australia romped to an easy 10-wicket win in the Ashes opener at Brisbane. A sign of things to come over the next 4 Tests? We'll soon know....The "usual suspects" all fared well, meaning we all got off to good starts as well.

  • ElfTwinkle and gtho4 have blasted off the blocks with N-Bomb and paper_aero close behind. However, Howie72 decided the pressure of sustaining a spoonless streak was too much for him, so he decided to take one after more than 4 years. His streak ends at 60 (last spoon in round 2 of 2013-14), well short of the record 77 rounds of N-Bomb...

  • The next round involves 2 Tests, so do get your picks in before the Test starts in New Zealand. I am already confused enough with time zones, so please check how many days/hours New Zealand is ahead of FT time grin

    Supersubs scoring this round: None

It's 19 hours difference this time of year between FT time and NZ time...so take FT time and subtract five hours (but remember to add a day), so at the time of this post, it is 3:10am in Auckland.

2017-18 season at a glance:

15 rounds from November 22, 2017 to March 30, 2018

4 rounds of multi-ODI matches (New Zealand features twice); 11 rounds of Test matches

Of the 11 Test matches, 5 rounds feature double header Test matches, 6 involve single Tests

In 15 rounds, we are heavily focused on Australia (10 rounds), England (9 rounds) and South Africa (8 rounds). Other teams this season are New Zealand (6 rounds), India (3 rounds), West Indies (2 rounds), Zimbabwe and Pakistan (1 round each). That's 8 of the 10 current Test nations. No Sri Lanka or Bangladesh this season in our comp.

Tip: Invest on Australian and England players' form and on double-header Tests grin grin

  • A Hearty WELCOME to LeoDaVinci, who is returning to this comp after many years smile Hoping he will last the course and not vanish after a few rounds tongue

  • The second Ashes Test sparked to life on days 3 and 4 when England fought back after conceding a massive lead and also when their captain led a spirited chase. However it was always a bridge too far and Australia duly won by 120 runs to go 2-0 up. Will England be whitewashed? Incidentally the batting heros for Australia were NOT their captain and vice-captain but the 8 times recalled Shaun Marsh and the returning wicket keeper Tim Paine!

  • The other Test at Wellington was blown open on day 1 by the New Zealand fast bowler Neil Wagner (picked only by srini701here) and the West Indians were never really in it despite a spirited show for sometime in their second innings. 8 of the 10 of us had the Kiwi skipper as our "Trump" player and he duly flopped most miserably grin Howie72 and ozzz2002 were the only ones who were wise in this match smilee

  • ozzz2002 rode on some valuable points scored by BOTH his supersubs to take the round's honours and move up the table....gtho4 as his wont in this comp, continued his Ashes team from the last round but it didnt pay off and he takes his first spoon for the season. LeoDaVinci picked up a decent score but starts at the bottom as he couldn't beat last round's spooner Howie72.

    Supersubs scoring this round: Plenty....gtho4 had Ambris scoring in place of Bishoo (no great difference), paper_aero had Shannon Gabriel scoring in place of Southee (no great difference), wwe84 had Roston Chase scoring in place of Alzarri Joseph (no great difference) and ozzz2002 had BOTH his supersubs scoring - Keiren Powell and Stuart Broad instead of Southee and Gary Ballance (decent scores from both).

  • A BIG THANKS to gtho4 for the new look scoring from this round smile ....Unfortunately that help couldn't stop him from getting a second spoon on the trot....with his habit of posting a single team for the entire series, he's always in danger of players missing out (despite one supersub scoring for him), or a player in bad form continuing to pull him down frown

  • srini701 takes the round's honours and moves up to second place behind paper_aero. N-Bomb and ElfTwinkle are also perched at the top, with an extremely tight and close middle order smile

  • New Zealand duly finished a 2-0 thrashing of the West Indies with their bowlers doing all the damage. Ross Taylor joined the late Martin Crowe and his captain Kane Williamson on 17 Test centuries, the most for a New Zealander in Tests.

    Supersubs scoring this round: Sunil Ambris (virtually nothing after a second successive hit wicket in Test cricket shocked ) for gtho4, but George had 2 players missing the match...

    The next round is the Perth Test between England and Australia starting this Thursday...please get your teams in before the toss or let your second Test team score for you.

  • Australia sealed yet another Ashes triumph at home, winning the final Test to be played at WACA by an innings margin....after allowing England to score over 400 in their first innings grin .... This England team is not as bad as it suddenly seems nor is the Australian team as great as it appears. It just seems to be a phase where every team is good in their backyard and struggle the minute they step out. England have now lost the last 7 Tests they played abroad....

  • Steve Smith continued to torment the Englishmen (and a few of us here) with a massive double century to lead the rout. DJ Malan was the other batsman who shone in the match (none of us picked him here). Hazlewood bowled well, but none of the English bowlers did.

  • Howie72 and gtho4 had Steve Smith for their "double" and they are naturally the round's heros here. ozzz2002, ElfTwinkle and srini701 had David Warner as their "double" and they all sank along with Warner mad (srini at least had Mitchell Marsh scoring a few more for him). LeoDaVinci lodged his picks a couple of hours after the match started (what's 2 hours in the context of a 5-day game?) and so his "double" pick didnt count, but it didnt harm him much as Moeen Ali had an average match too.

  • Other than illiniman14, not one of us stayed in their position from the last round...a familiar name is back at the top, and Howie made a massive jump up, but this promises to be a lot more topsy-turvy season than ever before.

    Supersubs scoring this round: Stuart Broad for ozzz2002, but unfortunately, he didn't amount to much this time.

    The next round is the Boxing Day Tests in Melbourne and Port Elizabeth, so please get your teams in well before the Toss in Melbourne.

  • Zimbabwe were an apology of a Test team and folded in less than 2 days against South Africa...good thing we are having them for only one round this season...plenty of our picks didn't even get to play! In Australia, Alistair Cook finally found his form and hit the highest ever score by an opener carrying his bat through the innings, but the MCG pitch was so poor, Australia easily got away with a draw, with Smith continuing to pile on the runs.

  • paper_aero won his first HoF for the season to narrow down N-Bomb's lead at the top....there's virtually NOTHING between these 2 at the moment. ElfTwinkle scored a 100 points more than srini701 to catch up with him. illiniman14 had a good round too, and he, Howie72 and wwe84 are all bunched up together. ozzz2002 defaulted the round and he slips to the bottom, with LeoDaVinci having a decent round there.

    Supersubs scoring this round: Plenty. But only paper_aero was laughing away at his supersub pick (David Warner)...

    The next round starts Thursday January 4 with the final Ashes Test. India and South Africa square off a day later. We will NOT pick the 2nd Test between these 2 countries but will pick the 3rd Test again. Two rounds of ODI series coming up in quick succession, so please do watch out and lodge your picks in time.

    Will switch back to gtho4 style of scoring from next round...

  • England folded meekly in the 5th Test as well (for a change Steve Smith did NOT score a century, though 3 other Aussie players did). 4-0 seems big but England is not a bad team...and neither is this Australian team a great one...I still feel this last decade, teams are all good only on their home grounds and are all poor travellers...

  • A point reinforced by the other Test of this round. South Africa and India did play a cracker of a Test match with fortunes swinging wildly every session, but at the end of the match, it was the home team that was smiling. South Africa are 1-0 up and India's run of 9 series wins (7 at home and 1 each in Sri Lanka and West Indies) should be over by the time the second Test is done....

  • There were some great performances in both Tests and we had some good scores, though for a change, most of our "double" picks (Smith, Starc, Warner, Kohli, Ashwin and de Villiers) had average matches in both Tests. N-Bomb pulled a little ahead of paper_aero with his first HoF for the season (still nothing between these 2 despite that show). The first 4 retained their positions but the remaining 6 all played musical chairs, with Leo skipping this round to go down.

    Supersubs scoring this round: None in the Ashes Test, but at least 4 in the other Test, all at least getting some decent scores smile

    The next round has started today (9 January) with last 4 ODIs between New Zealand and Pakistan. We will skip the second Test between South Africa and India (it clashes with the 5-match ODI series between England and Australia, which is our round 8.....teams have been posted for this so please make sure you pick your teams on time.
