Congrats Pioneers!!! Avenged the defeat from earlier round with style as the Burglars wilted under the big game pressure of finals. Good luck to both teams for the final.

Was a lot of fun with the auction and having a vested interest in the WC games kept it interesting. Thanks Oz for all the effort and everyone involved!!!
Great game Burglars!!!
Looking forward to the T20 WC next year.....

I personally think the winner of the final and therefore championship title just got decided in this auction.
Good luck guys on Wednesday when team selections will be due and the final actually starts.

Been fun for a one off game during this last month and a bit.
Never tried an auction game before and has it's logistical challenges but still been enjoyable to do.

Cannot wait for World Cup quarter finals to start.
This is the real stuff of the world cup and also the end of our fun game this week.
Hope you all enjoyed it guys.
Been an interesting game to try.
I personally found that in doing auctions doing one player at a time is more interesting for the whole game than group auctions but logistically tricky to do as a game. Having the world cup on has been a fun thing to try this one off game. With a big pool of players to pick from and 6 franchises of 17 players on lists I been very happy that every round it seemed we had realistic looking line-ups and having teams not have eleven play was not really a challenge for the most part which I suspect is not the case in fantasy games like Big Bash etc.

For the record I am sick of seeing Ballarat Goldminers going well in every comp I been in....lol
Want to take their brand down in ORFF this season ;)

Wow. Erich gone all in with Rohit Sharma this week.
Could have had anyone like Michael Clarke, Warner etc but chose to get Sharma in auction and make him designated hitter in final.
Meanwhile the Pioneers fortunes deeply locked in with how South Africans go today. With Amla in side plus de Villiers their captain and DH they will be hoping South Africa bat well, In their bowling line up they have two South Africans too. Morkel and Philander so will be big day for them as a franchise.
Also of interest will be the New Zealand game when we see if Gayle plays for Goldminers and Elliott still in team for Pioneers. That could be crucial too.
I think the Goldminers are a bit light on in their batting line up should Gayle not play. I also would have gambled on Ronchi in their final over de Kock as their keeper.

Dishan out for a duck to Steyn is not the start the Goldminers batting line up needed. That is minus 10 right there. Although de Kock has one catch too so 8 points to their team there for wicketkeeper catch.

Sri Lanka all out 133.
Imran Tahir 4 wickets for Goldminers in the Grand Final and de Kock two catches as keeper.
140 points for legspinner and 16 points from keeper right there.
Makes up for Dilshan minus 10 for a duck, almost!


Fantasy Scoring System (from CricketWeb)

Batting:
Each Run Scored 1 Point
Scoring Rate 100+ 10 Points
Scoring Rate 80.0 - 99.9 5 Points
Duck -10 Points
Golden Duck -20 Points
Notes: Scoring Rate - Only batsman scoring 25+ runs


Bowling:
Each Wicken Taken 20 Points
R.R.P.O: 3.50 or Less 20 Points
R.R.P.O: 3.51 to 4.50 10 Points
R.R.P.O: 4.51 to 5.00 5 Point
R.R.P.O: 6.00 to 6.99 -10 Points
R.R.P.O: 7.00+ -15 Points
Notes: Econ. Rate - A minimum of 3 overs must be bowled.


Fielding:
Per Catch 10 Points
Per WK Catch 8 Points
Per Run Out 10 Points
Per Stumping 15 Points
Notes: If applicable all players involved in a run out score points.


Bonus Points:
50 Runs 10 Points
100 Runs 20 Points
150 Runs 30 Points
4 Wicket Haul 40 Points
5 Wicket Haul 50 Points
Not Out 5 Points
Notes: These bonus points are on top of the standard points

There will also be scope for each franchise to name a designated hitter (DH) for each team line-up they submit on deadline dates outlined in fixture.
When submitting line-up you indicate the (DH) in your line-up and that player for that fantasy round contributes an extra 50% on what his fantasy score would be on system above.

We will also as franchise teams name a captain and vice captain for the whole league tournament.
Your acting captain in any game will contribute an extra 25% to your teams fantasy score that round.
There will be no change of captain for whole tournament once named. If your captain is not in side your VC will play as action captain and contribute that extra 25% bonus as acting captain. If neither is playing just plain bad luck :)

If you want to make your captain the designated hitter you can do that too and will result in 25% + 50% added together for a total 75% bonus contributed to fantasy team total for that fantasy round. Those bonuses for captain and designated hitter do not compound. Simple adding of bonuses together in such circumstances if you nominate captain as designated hitter. Hope that is clear.

de Kock repaying the faith shown in him by Erich.
119 points for Goldminers.
Imran Tahir 150 points for his for 4 wickets, economy rate and the catch off his bowling.
Another good result for Goldminers.
Dilshan scored a minus 10 for his duck to show you cannot have everything!
For Pioneers not a great start with de Villiers scoring a big fat zero for them as captain and DH. Did not even get a catch on the stats this game. Rare event indeed, Amla scoring just 16 is the other downer for them. Morkel scored 30 for them as a bowler.
Duminy is emergency allrounder for Andre Russell or Shakib for the Goldminers and has 80 points waiting for Goldminers should they need him to come into the side.
Goldminers after tonight will feel in a good place for this Grand Final.
