World Cricket - 2019-20: November 14, 2019 to end-March 2020
This will be the 16th edition of World Cricket
here at FT ...and my 13th running of the comp Nobody has ever retained their title
in the 15 years this comp has been run
totally dominated last season, and paper_aero
has been second-placed 4 years in a row now
. Can we finally have a new face in the second position please?
With the new World Test Championship starting, there will be more Tests this season than ODIs (we will have 2-3 ODI series of 3 matches along the way). We should see almost all Test playing countries in action (other than Afghanistan and Ireland).
You will as usual pick 5 players for Test matches and 6 (or more) for any 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 "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 as always there will be some rounds with 2 (or even 3) Tests in them.
10 people played the last seasons. Hoping to see people sustain their interest in the "most challenging" tipping competition here at FunTrivia
