The guy who was driving the car is a juvenile who turned 18 today and is a repeat offender. Anyway they have arrested his father and captured the vehicle. That car was booked multiple times for speeding in last three months.
The basic idea behind the game is for the team owner to create and monitor the progress of a team of 11 players.
The team owner is allocated a budget and the team selected by the owner cannot exceed this budget.
Once the team is created, team owners score points based on the player’s actual performance in the match.
Batsmen and bowlers score points based on number of runs scored or wickets taken. Fielders and wicketkeepers too can score points. Scoring details are provided here[^].
To make things more interesting, team owners can buy players along the way (in the form of player transfers).
The fantasy league is broken up into two phases. Phase I is allocated 80 transfers and phase 2 another 8 transfers.
Phase I starts when the first of the IPL is bowled and ends with the last league match. Phase 2 starts with the first qualifier.
Transfers prior to phase I and in between phase I and phase 2 are unlimited.
PLEASE NOTE that transfers for a particular match have to be made before that match starts (this is based on official start time). If they are made after a match starts, they only count for the next match.
This league has the concept of a power player. Each owner can choose one power player and the points scored by this player are doubled and added to the owners points tally.
This post summarizes the fantasy league. More details and rules can be found here[^].
Exclusive to Codeproject members, Pompeybhai has created a Code project league[^].
Those who join this league compete against each other and we have one final winner.
80 transfers, huh? Damnit! I picked an arbitrary 11 when I signed up, and today dropped all 11 players and picked a new 11. Looks like I wasted 11 transfers. This is all AK's fault - he was the one who recommended this approach to me to do a quick registration.
