I used to be good at this game, but have forgot how to cricket. I don't even know half the players. :(

Do they still have that thing where some teams play twice each round? That used to do my head in

Good thread and good timing, trying this this year. Have got some questions on strategy, will post them all in one go this weekend to make it a bit structured​

Some will be very basic for those who've been doing it for a while now, but you have to start somewhere.​

Planning to maximise points in the first round with lots of scorchers and heat players but am looking ahead to round 2 where the strikers have a double game with khan and laughlin. That said i am somewhat wary of round 3 when both the strikers and heat have a bye so my trades prior to round 2 will most likely be looking ahead and getting a few 6'ers or thunder players in for my heat players. The 6'ers dont have a bye round all season so someone like Henriques could well stay in my team all season. Its probably counterproductive to look ahead more than 2-3 rounds but i like the idea of keeping Watson and Ferguson until round 4 when they play twice.

I play in 3-4 week segments, and plan for the future. I use the following, which helps.

That definitely helps! I'm already planning potential trades for the first 4 rounds or so and am using the watchlist feature quite heavily. Its interesting to note that the first 4 rounds look the most difficult to navigate in terms of scheduling. I assume that teams are likely to be more fluid in the opening few rounds too so it might be a challenging period. Should be relatively smooth sailing after that. I'm currently looking at scheduling to see which teams/players are best to use to exploit loopholes as well. If i come to any meaningful conclusions ill be sure to post them

Every year I swear I won't play this frustrating game, but every year I do. Just an addict I guess :)

I've thrown this team together for round 1, but until we know which players are actually playing and available it's just guesswork. I do like the look of it if they all play though.

I know its way too early to be rating teams but jeez that looked awesome...until i saw the bench. If you can get away with spending as little as you did on the bench, your team will be bloody brilliant (for at least the first few rounds).

Compiling some questions l, will ask a couple on the weekend, I reckon.
Seems to have more tactical elements than footy SC to it with DGR/bye planning, horses for courses selections over utilizing full kitty depending on schedule / matchups, more slingshotting trading than classic rookie up/downgrades - at first glance, at least.
Understand the popularity, looks a good format and cream will rise to the top more reliably than in footy SC given intricacies, you’d reckon.

All true

Scoring rules worth looking at as well
