Play Sports Pundit Fantasy IPL & Win a VIP Trip To ICC World T20 in England
With the Season 2 of Indian Premier League (IPL) is scheduled in just about in another 2 Weeks time, A Leading Sports & Cricket Website called SportsPundit.com are Launching The Sports Pundit Fantasy IPL Game online which is targeted exclusively for Season 2 of the DLF IPL.
There are many Fantasy Cricket games out there on the web, but what is the major factor that makes Sports Pundit Fantasy IPL Different?
The Answer lies in Prizes!
Sports Pundit Fantasy IPL not only gives the players a chance to win the Grand Prize where the winner of the IPL Fantasy League will win a trip for two to ICC T20 World Cup. There are weekly prizes to be won as well based on the highest scoring manager which are official cricket shirts from the favorite IPL teams. The weekly prizes will also be given to most active Sports Pundit members (writing, voting, editing, and forum activity).
As far as my knowledge goes for Fantasy Cricket Games, No Other Game or Website is close to offering these grand prizes as Sports Pundit Fantasy IPL does.
About the game –
The game will start from the first match on 10th April 2009 and will run through to the final match on 29th May 2009. Members can create a profile and receive a Fantasy Budget to create their own ‘Fantasy Cricket Team’ of players in the series. This Fantasy team will then receive points based on the real life performance of the players selected. Every member will be allowed to enter one team only.
Names and Profiles –
Members can assign an appropriate name to the team irrespective of the official team name. Anyone can choose a management style of their own to boost your profile.
Choosing Players –
The Fantasy Cricket team will comprise of real cricketers participating in the IPL which can be picked up from a list of 35 participating players. The team will comprise of four bowlers, five batsmen, one wicketkeeper and one all rounder. Members have an option to hand pick the team using their own cricketing knowledge or just use the “Lucky Dip” option where the computer picks a team. The members need to ensure that they pick the team before 14:00GMT on 17th April to and “Submit” it before the deadline otherwise it will be automatically submitted.
Every single team is automatically entered into the overall “World League”. However, you can also enter your team into a private mini-league for your friends. Members will be able to do this under a Mini-League Admin section of the website. Anyone is free to join upto 10 mini-leagues however one can be the ‘chairman’ of 3 mini-leagues only. Members who join a mini-league will not be allowed to move or delete so as to choose your leagues carefully.
There is a Grand Prize where the winner of the IPL Fantasy League will win a trip for two to ICC T20 World Cup. There weekly prizes to be won as well based on the highest scoring manager which are official cricket shirts from the favorite IPL teams. The weekly prizes will also be given to most active Sports Pundit members (writing, voting, editing, and forum activity). The weekly schedules will be announced once the Fantasy League IPL goes live.
League of Leagues Champions –
The mini-league with the highest average score at the end of the competition will be deemed the ‘League of League Champions’ and each manager in that league will be rewarded too. There must be at least 5 teams in your mini-league to qualify for this prize. The ‘League of Leagues’ competition can only be entered by mini-leagues who qualify with the minimum number of 5 teams. One has to register for a mini-league up until 00:01GMT on 1st May 2009. Any mini-leagues entered after this date or who do not have the minimum required number of teams will not qualify for entry into the ‘League of Leagues’.
Early Registration Prize –
All teams that are registered before the transfer window closes 14:00GMT on 17th April 2009 also have the chance to win rewards.
Scoring Points –
Points will be scored by each players performance based on how many runs they score or how many wickets they take as well. Each player will also receive additional points based on the overall performance of the team on whether they win or lose.
All teams will receive an allocation of 3 transfers each week of the season. Members cannot carry transfers over from one week to another as any transfers left at the end of the week you will be not be taken forward. All transfers must be made by 12:00GMT the day of each match. Only the players that you have named in your Fantasy team at the transfer deadline will score fantasy points for that day. Any transfers that you make once the transfer deadline passes will not score Fantasy Points until the next eligible match. Also it’s important that all members finalise their teams by the deadline of 4:00GMT on 17th April 2009 and shuffle their fantasy teams around to without having to use transfers. Transfers made after the transfer window closes will be taken from the transfer allocation for that month.
