As with so many things, we sort of half-floated the idea with no real enthusiasm and then someone else went ahead and sorted it out.
Mike has set up The King Cricket CBA Cup within The Telegraph’s county fantasy league thing. CBA stands for ‘can’t be arsed’ to reflect the spectacular levels of enthusiasm underpinning the venture.
You’re all welcome – even those of you who are cricket journalists. We know as well as anyone that such an occupation will provide no advantage.
You can find the league by picking a team, paying EIGHT JEFFING QUID and then going to ‘my leagues’ whereupon you can search for ‘King Cricket CBA Cup’. The PIN to gain access is then 8124380.
If we were to set rules for this league, we’d say ‘no transfers’. You just pick your side and then fate has its say.
However, you’re paying EIGHT JEFFING QUID, so do what you want. We daresay no-one will have strong enough feelings to rigorously enforce the ‘no meddling’ law. In fact it remains to be seen just how many people can muster strong enough feelings to part with EIGHT JEFFING QUID in the first place.
The deadline for entry is 11am on Friday. Sorry if that’s relatively short notice. Sorry also that it’s The Telegraph. And sorry yet again that it costs EIGHT JEFFING QUID.
Of course there aren’t any prizes. Don’t even ask.
Update: You can also get three teams for FIFTEEN JEFFING QUID if you happen to be a billionaire.
