#QuarantineAintEasy

Deadline

Sunday May 3rd 2020

Rules

Pick 11 players who have played at least two International Test Matches for the West Indies. Any.
You can only pick a player once.

How to play

Every player selected will have a match he played in selected at random. That player (and only that player) will accumulate fantasy points. The number of fantasy matches will be determined by the number of entries I receive but we will shoot for at least 5. When every player has played his quota of matches the FL will end.

Scoring

Batting

1 point per run.
+10 for a score of 50.
+10 for every further increment of 50 scored.

Bowling

20 points per wicket
2 points per maiden over
+50 points for 5+ wickets in inns

Fielding

10 points per catch/stumping/run out

Understood?

So if you pick 11 players with one being Brian Lara:

I hit the random number generator and pull up the equivalent match for Brian Lara. Then I look up the scorecard. This is what I get

Scorecard

Remember this match will only be used to calculate Brian Lara's fantasy points even if other players selected played in this match.

Some People here have absolutely no respect for SIR FRANK WORRELL , my take
is if he aint on the Team , your Team is Dead , BTW he must also be the Captain of
the Team .

I recommend that those here who profess
to be knowledgeable about Cricket to read the 1960 -1960 West Indies 1960 -
1961 Tour to Australia .

SirFrank Worrell was the First Black man to be the Captain of the West Indies Team , and he did a Damn Good Job of being the Captain of the Team .

I recommend that those who say they
know Cricket read Cricket Books on the West Indies Tour to Australia 1960 - 1961 .

I have a copy of " WITH THE WEST INDIES IN AUSTRALIA 1960 -1961 written by A.G ("Johnnie") MOYES .I bought this book on Ebay , in it is a
an article clipping dated 13 th. March 1967 by Alan Trengrove .

There was also in the the book a moving Tribute to Frank Worrell by
Australian Ian Johnson entitled :

" CARIBBEAN'S CHIVALROUS

KNIGHT PASSES ON " -

You were proud to know Frank Worrell, said Ian Johnson , the Captain of the
Australian Team , who was also a friend of Sir Frank Worrell .

There is also another newspaper clipping in the book entitled :

" WORRELL : HE LOVED OUR CITY "

written by Alan Trengrove , referring
to Melbourne .

I cite the above to illustrate that :

IN ANY WEST INDIES TEAM SIR FRANK

WORRELL MUST BE THE CAPTAIN OF THAT

TEAM .

Not only was he the first Black person to become the Captain of the
West Indies Team , HE did a Damn Good Job as Captain of the West Indies Team ; On and off the Field .

So in my opinion any West Indies Team selected and Sir Frank Worrell aint on the Team , and also as Captain of the Team . Some people are unaware of the fact that HE was also a Good Pace
Bowler .

HOWEVER THE LYNCHPIN IS THE FACT THAT

HE WAS THE FIRST BLACK MAN TO CAPTAIN

THE WEST INDIES TEAM , AND AQUITTED

HIS ROLE AS CAPTAIN OF THE TEAM ,

THAT HIS STEWARDSHIP AS THE CAPTAIN

PAVED THE WAY FOR OTHER BLACK PERSONS

TO BE ABLE TO BE SELECTED AS CAPTAIN

OF THE WEST INDIES TEAM .

Obviously he had failed ,that would have been a setback for a Black West
Indian to become the Captain of the
West Indies Team .

THIS SIGNIFICANCE IS LOST ON THE

JOKERS IN THIS FORUM WHO CLAIM TO BE

KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT WEST INDIES

CRICKET .

BTW It was Sir Frank Worrell who stated that Players from the Leeward & Windward Islands should play in the
Regional Tournaments , and vie for
places in the West Indies Team .

This is a fantasy league thread boss. Post your team or stay off. If you want to start a separate thread about Sir Frank you are free to do so.

lol lol lol

I need some clarification though Nick. What if I pick Ganteaume instead of having him as 12th man. He only played one Test match and scored a century, so he will have the same random game selected each time. No? smile

I'm just surprised that some of these teams include dotties with no objections. Is this a sign that some posters have taken leave from this MB?
