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

5. Your team of 5 MUST include at least 2 players from each sub-section (So you have either 2 batsmen and 3 bowlers, or vice-versa)

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.
