You get 42 transfers over the first 21 matches, ie it's more about how you roll your squad over than just picking the 11 best players for the whole tournament.

There's 1 team that plays 3 times in the first 9 days and only 2 that play 2

Does it take into account when a player is reprimanded or fined for behaviour?

In another tragic incident on the field, 18-year-old Zeeshan Mohammed died after being struck on the chest by a cricket ball.

Doctors at the Orangi Town General Hospital said that Mohammed died from a heart seizure after he was struck by the cricket ball during a club match in Orangi on Sunday.

“He was brought to the hospital but was pronounced dead on arrival,” Doctor Samad at the hospital said. “We were told he was hit on the chest by a fast bowler while batting and collapsed on the pitch,” he said.

The funniest thing about the pricing is that Glenn Maxwell is worth the same as Steve Smith. I get that they came up with the prices by looking at career stats, but based on recent form maxwell should be worth about $50k (I picked him anyway)

The answer is, mate, because I want to do you slowly. There has to be a bit of sport in this for all of us. In the psychological battle stakes, we are stripped down and ready to go. I want to see those ashen-faced performances; I want more of them. I want to be encouraged. I want to see you squirm.

England fast bowler Stuart Broad has apologised after making comments about the UK minimum wage on Twitter.
The 28-year-old tweeted: "I've heard if you earn minimum wage in England you're in the top 10% earners in the world. #stay #humble."
Broad, who is in Australia on England duty, deleted the message after angry replies from some Twitter users.
Broad then posted: "No offence meant and sorry if any taken. The hashtag was aimed at myself."
The Nottinghamshire seamer is due to face India in the tri-series in Sydney on Friday.
In another post, he wrote: "Clarifying my earlier tweet, I merely wanted to emphasise my amazement at just how big the world is."
Since October 2014, the UK minimum wage has been £6.50 an hour for adults aged 21 and over, and £5.13 for those aged 18 to 20.

i would like broad to further clarify his comments on how minimum wage earners in the UK representing part of the top 10% of earners in the world correlates with 'how big the world is'.

a man who has travelled the four corners of the globe for cricket, how big did he think the world was before?
