Twenty20 cricket fans will be able to join the action and excitement of the new NatWest T20 Blast by playing a new Fantasy Game launched by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) today.
The free-to-play Fantasy Game challenges fans to pick and manage their “dream team” of county cricket’s T20 stars within a budget of 100 “credits” with players being valued according to FTI Most Valuable Player rankings and Opta stats, to stand the chance of winning a great selection of prizes.
Participants will automatically enter the main competition – the winner of which will win £2,020 and four tickets for a day’s play of the Investec Ashes Series in 2015. Players will also compete with their fellow county fans in one of 18 mini-leagues – one for each county. The winners of these 18 mini-leagues will each win £500.
Players can also create up to 15 private mini-leagues to compete against friends, family and colleagues.
Fans are asked to enter before Gameweek 1 begins on Friday May 16, by picking their team at fantasy.ecb.co.uk and sharing their team on twitter using #FBL.
