Month: December 2014

Pre-Auction favourites!

A maximum of 200 units only.

Dishin: 2/1 starts as favourite for he tournament as he has the highest finish in aggregate in all our games for the last few years.

Sachin, Rahul: 2.5/1 are to be respected as the last auction/ fantasy champion respectively.

Piyush, Chirag: 3/1 as they will be the safest players in the auction.

Bob: 5/1 as I fully expect him to be not at 100% focus during the auctions !

Rachit: 7/1 simply the biggest risk taker at the auctions !

Deadline: beginning of auction.

World Cup Teams Preview: ENGLAND

Eoin Morgan (capt), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Gary Ballance, Ian Bell, Ravi Bopara, Stuart Broad, Jos Buttler, Steven Finn, Alex Hales, Chris Jordan, Joe Root, James Taylor, James Tredwell, Chris Woakes

England are the first to announce their 15 man squad and the team is littered with fantasy options.

Fantasy Big-Buy: Moeen Ali. Stuart Broad. These two all-rounders might go for a good price and will give great depth to any team in the auction, The pitches might not be ideal for Ali’s bowling but he does have a knack of picking wickets. Stuart Broad’s injury might be a concern.

Fantasy Safe Play: Joe Root. Mr. Consistent for me and could be the safest route into this team.

Fantasy Trap: Steven Finn, Alex Hales: These guys could burst for big points but could also flop. Buyer Beware!
