Sign up HERE!

After an enormous BBL|05 Fantasy season, we’re all set for another bumper season – here's the key information you need to know.

Team Selection

- Player price changes will take effect immediately following Round 1. This will allow you to upgrade rookie-priced players earlier in an attempt to build your perfect team.

- Fantasy players will be selecting a squad of 16 players: seven batsmen, two wicketkeepers and seven bowlers, with a starting XI consisting of five batsmen, one wicketkeeper and five bowlers.

- Allrounders can be selected either as a batsman or bowler. This has been done to reflect the reality of choosing a cricket team and increase trading options at the conclusion of each round to allow for byes and other anomalies in the BBL fixture.

- Visual indicators alert Fantasy players which players have been selected in the squad and which players are selected in the final XI.

- With a rolling lock-out each and every round, Fantasy players can continue to edit players in their squad right up until that match is scheduled to get underway.

Leagues

- Fantasy players can play in up to 10 head-to-head leagues and 10 unlimited-size groups.

- In addition to the traditional eight-team head-to-head leagues, you can create or join private leagues of four teams.

- Round results will be processed at the conclusion of the final match of each round, allowing Fantasy players to start trading and setting up their team for the next round.

Scoring Changes

- One simple change this season: bowlers are now awarded one point for every dot ball they bowl.

So there you have it – your favourite Fantasy competition refreshed and better than ever!

And don’t forget the prizemoney:

- $10k for overall winner

- $500 for round winner

- $6k for winning league (to be split evenly among participants)

- 2 x premium memberships for winning the Supporter League of the team you support/nominate

Stay tuned for team-by-team previews as the BBL|06 season draws closer.
