    Social Distancing Shield (T20)

    AI v AI competition to help pass the time, give us some sport to watch during the lockdown.

    Seventeen members of Planet Cricket (plus me) have picked players via silent aution.

    They will play in three groups leading up to a knockout round.

    Auction had highly competitive rounds.

    You can see the schedule and the squads by following these links.

    Stats

    You will be able to select players for each match on your teamsheet. When you do this is up to you, but I'd recommend doing it before the day of the game (or no later than a hour before start). If you don't update for a match I'll just use the line up from the last game.

    If you are at home you can set the conditions for the pitch. If you can, share that information in this thread in advance, so that other people will know what to expect. I'll take request from people if they want to know what conditions the opposition are serving up. If you don't choose anything I'll use the default settings for the ground.

    Being a "key" worker - a manager style thing would work better for me...

    I would say a manager style thing would be more practical as naturally I assume we're all over the globe so time zones would be a pain in the butt.

    Ai vs Ai everyone picks from a squad of 15 as chief selector and off we go!

    I can’t play online and cross platform might be an issue.

    I’d suggest manager. Run a draft like those in the cricket discussion section, and play AI vs AI

    Looks like management style is best. Certainly logistically. I had a couple of ideas. I'll post them up later/tomorrow, but for now I'm watching Tiger King again.

    Carole tweaking Baskin.

    If we are doing management rather than playing I might be able to take part

    How about something like the old Fantasy Leagues where you can only have a total number of OV points?

    You can have a squad of 20-odd players in a squad but in the match 11 you must have a minimum of four batsmen, one all-rounder, a keeper and three bowlers (leaves two places to fill with extra batters, bowlers or all-rounders as seen fit) with a total OV of somewhere around 700-800.

    Whoever is in charge of the game can announce the pitch and weather conditions in advance and the managers choose their XI based on that.

    Also, I've got a stats spreadsheet template ready to go if that will be any help.

    I've updated the first post with ideas.

    Initially I added a poll but I thought anyone could vote whether they want to take part or not. So, it is probably better to reply again if you want in and include your preferred option (Idea 1 or 2) if you don't pick one I'll assume you are happy with either one.

    I'd go for option 2 but it will only really be of any use to me if we could pick from history, as my knowledge of contemporary cricket is rudimentary at best.
