5 match ODI series between Australia and England.

Please read the guidelines before picking the teams.

1. Pick 6 players from the lists below.
2. Pick 3 players from each team.
3. Pick 1 trump player from your team whose score "doubles".
4. Pick 1 "supersub" (7th player). This player ONLY scores if any of your original 6 picks do not play even a single match (Can be from either team)
5. Your team of 6 MUST include at least 3 players from each sub-section (So you have 3 batsmen and 3 bowlers)

Scoring
1. Every run scored by the player you pick scores 1 point.
2. Every wicket taken by a bowler scores you 20 points.
3. Every catch/stumping by the player scores you 5 points.
4. NO points for run-outs please
5. The score of your "trump" player is doubled.

Teams:
Australia (Announced):
Batsmen: Steve Smith (capt), David Warner, Aaron Finch, Travis Head, Chris Lynn, Cameron White, Tim Paine, Mitchell Marsh (to balance the numbers)

Bowlers: Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Liam Plunkett, Tom Curran, Mark Wood, Jake Ball


Deadline: Toss on Sunday, January 14. That would be 14.30 am local time, and 03.30 am GMT, 9.30 pm Saturday, January 13 FT time. Please do not wait till last minute to lodge picks. If you miss deadline, there would be no Trump player score for you (the rest of the squad still scores).
