The Bolton News in connection with the Bolton Cricket League is bringing you a great new Bolton League Fantasy Cricket competition, and here is your chance to enter. The paper has teamed up with the Bolton Cricket League to create a fantastic fun game. And, thanks to sponsor Anthony Axford timber merchants of Farnworth, there is a £400 prize on offer to the winner.
A limit of 150 entrants has been set who will each pick a team of 11 players from the 20teams who will line up in the Bolton League's two divisions this season.
Points will be awarded to the players depending on how well they perform in the 18 league games, and the winning entrant will be the one who amasses the most points throughout the season. The competition is based on the MVP(Most Valuable Player) statistics from the electronic scoring system CricHQ. Entrants can select five players from the Premier Division and five players from the Association Division plus one professional from either division.
Each week an updated table will appear on The Bolton News website and in the paper so entrants can keep up with how they stand. A bowler's unassisted wicket will be worth 2.5 points. A wicket taken with the assistance of a fielder or wicketkeeper will be worth 1.25 points for the bowler and 1.25 points for the fielder or wicketkeeper. A bowler will be awarded a 10 per cent bonus for each subsequent wicket, and will be rewarded if their economy rate is lower than the team's average and penalised if it is higher. A fielder will earn 2.5 points for each run out, and a 10 per cent bonus for each subsequent catch or runout. A batsman will earn 2.5 points for every 25 runs scored, and will be rewarded if their strike rate is higher than the team's average and penalised if it is lower. Batsmen lower down the order can earn bonuses not available to the batsmen higher in the order.
Only the main BoltonLeague competition will count towards the points, and players need to be participating to add to their points. The prize money will bes hared if there is more than one winner.
Select five players from Premier Division clubs and five players from Association Division clubs. One of your players selected must be a wicketkeeper, but only one keeper can be selected. Select a professional from any division.
