Welcome to Cricket Predictions

How scoring works? The aim of the game is to score as many points as possible with your team of 6 players for the match. Fantasy points are based upon how your chosen players perform as close to your predictions for them for that match. Players are awarded points in the following way:

RUNS Predictions You select a range within which you expect your player to score. Each range is assigned a number viz. 0-10 is 1; 1120 is 2; 21-30 is 3and so on. Now, for e.g. let's say you select Sachin and predict that he will score between 11 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 20 runs and he actually scored 35 which is within the 31-40 range. If the difference between your predicted range (PR) and actual scored range (AR) is <=2, you get plus points otherwise you get minus points. In our example above, PR=2 and AR. So, you get plus points because the difference is 2 (4 - 2). The points are given as follows If difference is 0, you get bonus of 250 points If difference is 1, you get bonus of 100 points If difference is 2, you get bonus of 50 points If difference is 3, you get minus 25 points If difference is 4, you get minus 50 points If difference is 5, you get minus 100 points If difference is 6 or above, you get minus 250 points

BOWLING Predictions This has 2 parts to it, wickets taken and economy rate. A. Wickets Prediction - Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s say your prediction of the number of wickets a player will take is P and the actual number of wickets taken is A then X = [P - A]. If X = 0, you get bonus 100 points If X = 1, you get 25 points If X = 2, you get 0 points If X = 3, you get -50 points If X = 4+, you get -250 points

B. Eco-rate prediction - You select a range within which the economy rate your chosen player will lie. Like batting predictions, each economy range rate is assigned a number as follows â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Now, let's say you select Malinga and predict that he will bowl at the rate between 5.01 - 5.50 and he actually bowled at 1.51 - 2.00. If the difference between your predicted range (PR) and actual scored range (AR) is <=2, you get plus points otherwise you get minus points. In our example, PR=11 and AR=4, you get minus points because the difference is 7 (11 - 4). The points are allocated as under: If difference is 0, you get bonus of 200 points If difference is 1, you get bonus of 100 points If difference is 2, you get bonus of 50 points If difference is 3, you get minus 25 points If difference is 4, you get minus 50 points If difference is 4, you get minus 50 points If difference is 6+, you get minus 300 points
