World Cricket 2017-18: Round 11 - Sunday, February 25 - March 10, 2018

5 ODIs between New Zealand and England...cracker of a series in the offing :-)

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)...allrounders divided into one of the 2 sections.

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:
New Zealand (Announced...first 2 matches):
Batsmen: Kane Williamson (capt), Tom Latham, Todd Astle, Martin Guptill, Colin Munro, Henry Nicholls, Ross Taylor
Bowlers: Colin De Grandhomme, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson, Matt Henry, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee


England (Announced)
Batsmen: Eoin Morgan (captain), Jonny Bairstow, Sam Billings, Jos Buttler, Alex Hales, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes
Bowlers: Moeen Ali, Tom Curran, Craig Overton, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood


Deadline: Toss on Sunday, February 25. That would be 13.30 pm local time, and 12.30 am GMT, 8 pm Friday, February 24 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).
