BCC Fantasy Cricket 2022

Sat in the Angel earlier on this year, a group of mainly third team cricketers came up with a revolutionary, never been done before idea - let's run a fantasy cricket game based on Baildon CC players! After the next four hours were wasted talking about benchmarking performances; the fantasy committee, led by lead fantasist Simon Bullock came up with the following game...


Pick 11 players from 5 player pools, with no more than 3 from each pool, you must pick a designated wicket keeper (but you can only have one - so you can't have Adam Dean and Tom Pickles for example).  You have a maximum budget of £50m to pay for your squad. Player's values are based on a formula which was created using their 2021 performances. 

Points are scored as follows; 1pt per run, 20 per wicket, 10 per catch or stumping. Only performances in senior league Saturday matches will count towards a player's score. (Friendly games, junior games, cup games, Sunday League games - do not count).

It costs £5 to enter, a prize will be worked out based on the number of entrants. We will also give a bonus prize to the team with the best name (that is safe to be published on our social media channels!). To enter please pay £5 into the cricket club bank account (Sort Code 20 11 81 Account Number 40109576) with the payment reference of Fantasy XI and your surname and then e-mail your team to Simon Bullock:

The closing date for entries is Friday 22nd of April (so you can take a look at the opening performances in our Bradford league sides before picking your team if you want).  The player pools are as follows;

Please note that the fantasy committee's decisions are final. The above ratings and team positions are only done to help structure the game - we have not set out to offend anyone in terms of their position or score, so please do not take offence! Certain players above have artificial ratings, this is either because they were injured last year or were playing for a different team.
