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 smile

Nobody has ever retained their title in the 15 years this comp has been run frown .... Howie72 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 grin

I think we should also have tipping for the Women's Internationals.

Women mostly play T20s. Our comp focuses only Tests and ODIs. Plus we pick players, and not teams in this comp...Not sure how many follow the game, or even if they do, if they'd like to take a punt on picking players for T20s smile

  • A warm welcome to the returning faithful to the "toughest tipping comp at FT" (yes, even over the dreadful A-League, Howie smile ). Special welcome to our newcomer Llynfi, who replaces ElfTwinkle in the lineup from last season.

  • Our season gets off to a slow start, with most of us scoring nothing through our trump players (that's some solace to Howie72, who didn't have a trump player due to late picks). Only gtho4 (Rahane), paper_aero (Ashwin) and to some extent N-Bomb (Jadeja) scored points from their trump players.

  • paper_aero is our first leader but wwe84 probably had the best team from the first round (except for the trump, of course).

    Supersubs scoring this round: Mushfiqur scored for srini701 and Mominul scored for ozzz2002 in place of Al-Amin Hossain.

    The next round starts this Thursday, Nov 21 and is a BIG round already...3 Tests coming up. Please don't wait till last day, as the Test in New Zealand starts pretty early for the rest of us around the world. Here's hoping Howie72 will stay on, post his picks, and try to defend his title...
