In case of the player buying the same amount of players from two franchises, then the team he has spent on more well  become his IPL team for this year.

IPL 2018: Rules & Regulations

IPL 2018 begins and to help all prepare we have made the below guidelines:

  1. Choosing a Squad – This has never been easier. Choose any quota of players without fear of classifications. No more minimum batsmen or bowlers.
  2. Number of Players: Minimum 16, Maximum 18.
  3. Trades: No more trades! They are removed from the game.
  4. Insurance: No more insurance! They are removed from the game.
  5. Captains: Each player has two captains that can be used prior to any match from Game 1 to the Finals of the IPL. Captains award double points for that one game only.
  6. Budget: Each player starts with a budget of 3000 units. All players are priced and the spreadsheets have been sent to all. It is the players responsibility to buy a minimum of 16 players.
  7. Transfers: See Section Below.

Why Sidd & Dishin dominated 2016-17 Auctions?

Mathematically, these guys dominated because of the three commandments of fantasy football:

  • The best eleven must start most games
  • Have a great striker: Dishin had Kane plus Sidd had Costa
  • Have a great midfield: Dishin had Sanzhes plus Sidd had Alli/Eriksen

On top of that both had the top scoring defenders in Cahill & Alonso.

Look at Bharat’s team for example: he had Hazard plus Aguero but most of his players did not start and he finished at the bottom.


Premier League Auctions: Token System

There will be total of 2 x No. of player auctions tokens being sold, i.e

  • 6 players: 12 Tokens
  • 7 players: 14 Tokens

The two tokens will be part of the 20 players bought at the auctions.

After the auctions are over, everyone will have bought two tokens. Now say after the auctions Chelsea FC bought Bonucci. In the WhatsApp chat, we will auction Bonucci with the token system. Say Bharat had token 1, he has first preference to get Bonucci. If he passes, The Huss who has the second token can have him if he wants and so on.

Once The Huss buys Bonucci with his token, The Huss only has one token left. When new players are bought, we keep doing this in the chat with a one hour time limit for each player to make a decision.

This will of course be explained again at the auctions.
