    Anyone keen on a T20 comp.
    Prize money for top weekly score $500, top overall scorer $10k and $6k for top league.
    If your keen there are 4 or 8 team leagues.

    Yeah I had a go last year and didn't mind it. I'll jump in a comp for sure.

    Cool, it'll be my first year so popping the cherry. Looks interesting enough could be some curly weeks the way the way the fixture is structured though.

    Quick question, looking through the scoring system and i'm a little confused.
    If you have a dual position player do they score from both or just the position they are playing?

    Y
    Yeah the fixture setup means you trade often and weight your team like in NBL DT. Good all-rounders are key as they (obviously) contribute with both bat and ball. Your batsmen want to be openers, or pretty high up in the order, to make sure they get at least the opportunity to score. Bowlers as you'd expect.

    Scratch some of that Doddy, looks like there's been multiple changes to scoring / game setup!

    The use of strike rates and run rates, could be what decides some scores thats for sure.

    Absolutely! Plenty of guys priced nicely. I actually struggled to get up to the salary cap with my first team, there are so many bargains. Joel Paris from the Scorchers, a big left-arm quick, is a bargain-basement price and a lock for mine. Luke Wright, assuming he still opens the batting this season, might be handy at a good price with a double first up. Marcus Harris and Craig Simmons are fairly priced and have killer strike rates as openers. Cam White is super cheap and will have a chip on his shoulder after being dumped by the Stars. Spinners who take wickets (Hogg, Boyce, Zampa) or keep it tight (Beer, Doherty) are valuable too.

    Some of the names and prices are starting to get me excited about SC 2016 though. There's going to be some ripper under priced premos next year.
    Hogg didn't even cross my mind, but yes i think White will be one to watch for sure, he'll be looking to stick it up em'.

    If you want to start one Hondo i'm cool with that, you probably will be able to rustle up more interest than me.

    If we only have 4 definite starters and those 4 are keen I think let's just run with the 4.

    4 team league code : 530897

    If we get more interest I can simply create a second league with 8 teams.

    Guys, I think I'll opt out this year, sorry. It might pay for me to concentrate on NBL DT. I'm not much chop at BBL anyway. I'll definitely be watching the games though! Good luck :)
