Twenty20 cricket fans will be able to join the action and excitement of the new NatWest T20 Blast by playing a new Fantasy Game launched by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today.
The free-to-play Fantasy Game challenges fans to pick and manage their “dream team” of county cricket’s T20 stars within a budget to stand the chance of winning a great selection of prizes.
Points are earned for batting, bowling and fielding, with bonus points being given for batsmen’s strike rates, bowler’s economy rater and the FTI Most Valuable Players.
Entrants into the competition stand the chance to win £2,020, and four tickets to a day’s play of the Investec Ashes Series in 2015. When registering, fans are also asked to choose their favourite county – and as a result will compete with their fellow county fans in one of 18 mini-leagues, one for each county. The winners of these mini leagues will win £500.
Players can create up to 15 mini-leagues so they can compete against friends, family and colleagues so they can win bragging rights over who has the best team.
