HOW TO PLAY
Welcome to Bayside Sports Fantasy game! This is your chance to lead your very own team to glory and a place on our Hall of Fame leaderboard.
Before you start in we suggest you have a read to familiarize yourselves with the game workings.
The Aim of the Game
Fantasy Cricket gives you the chance to put your management skills to the test. The aim of the game is to assemble and manage a team of cricketers from different teams and score as many points as possible. Cricketers score points based on their actual performances and the manager with the most points at the end of the game will be declared the winner.
Before you can create a team, you must register for a free Bayside Sports Fantasy League account.
First time logged in user needs to create his profile with basic details and choose a Team Name and Avatar for the fantasy league.
Choosing a game
Choose from the different tournaments to join.
There are two type of gameplay for each tournament.
Each user is restricted to one team per competition for each account. However you can enter as many different competitions, private leagues as you would like or are actively running at the time.
Stay within your rating cap to select your ultimate 25 players team and score points based on the actual, real stats of your players throughout the tournament.
Head to Head
When you create a team you will be asked to select an ACE PLAYER for your team. Your selected ace player will score double points for you (remember that's double losing points also). So unlike in actual cricket you are selecting your ACE player on gut feeling that they will score big points for you rather than real leadership skills.
Your team earns points as per how the players chosen by you perform in the real-life matches. So strategize wisely and brush up on your cricket knowledge to be in a better position to win!
