IPL fantasy cricket team league

A whole host of sites offering free fantasy IPL cricket have sprung up. We’ve entered one and set up a league, which you can join if you want.

League members won’t be playing for a cup or even a plate. We’ll be playing for The King Cricket Takeaway Box. It’s okay, it’s clean. We gave it a right good wash. There’s a bit of a yellowy haze still where the turmeric’s stained it, but it is clean. We promise.

You’ve probably got a couple of questions about our expertly chosen team. We’ll endeavour to answer them.

Q: Did you accidentally pick a handful of Aussies, forgetting that they weren’t actually appearing for the first few weeks because they were playing Pakistan?

A: Yes.

Q: Did you pick Burt Cockley?

A: Yes.

Q: Do you regret the selection of Burt Cockley in light of the fact that he didn’t play the first match and probably won’t appear at all?

A: No. The selection of Burt Cockley is about so much more than points in a fantasy cricket game. It is also about supporting people with faintly amusing names.

If you do want to join our league, send your email address to king@kingcricket.co.uk and we’ll send you an invite tomorrow night.

We know it’s late and yes, we’ll already have established a lead in the league, but remember: we HAVE selected Burt Cockley and we aren’t going to be transferring him, even if he gets injured or banned or something. There is every chance that we will finish last.

  1. If Burt has made the team, surely you have to find room for Napoleon Einstein….

    We did consider him, but we didn’t want to dilute Burt’s spotlight.

  3. Can we just base our selection on who is HOT?

  4. Bring it King!

    You will need the head start :p

  5. Seems a bit harsh, Gaz.

  6. Not in front of children Gaz, please or my mum wouldn’t let me log on to King Cricket ever again.

  7. All cricket fans who are not able to watch matches on their television sets or busy in office and they want to watch matches on their computer screen, live video streming with ball to ball commentory. All you need is a high speed broadband connection to watch matches online. Main feature of this website is this that you can watch all matches without any buffering. You can see all current matches live on our website but our channels will work at match time so no need to worry if you can’t see any match before start of the match. You need to wait for the match time.

    Here you can watch live IPL and Other cricket matches at http://www.hipakistan.com/cricketchannel.html

  9. Damn KC that league is way harder to build a “good” team than cricinfo – so much for having Warne, Vettori, Murali and Kumble as my bowling attack.

    On the plus side I think I have found a few really good players cheap. On the downside, 4 of them play for the Royal Challengers o.O
