2. Pick a maximum of 3 players from one team.

4. Pick a "supersub" (6th player). This player ONLY scores if any of your original picks do not play the match (should be from the team of 2 players)
5. Your team of 5 MUST include at least 2 player from each sub-section (So you have either 2 batsmen and 3 bowlers, or vice-versa)

Scoring

2. Every wicket taken by a bowler scores you 20 points.
3. Every catch/stumping by the player scores you 5 points.
