THE PLANETCRICKET LEAGUE 4

TPCL management has major announcements regarding the fourth edition of PlanetCricket's premier fantasy league!

TOURNAMENTS

As we all know, we've had TPCL being contested in First-Class and List A formats since the inaugural season, while the T20 tournament came into existence in Season 2.
Needless to say, the fourth edition of The PlanetCricket League will feature all three formats previously played in the league!

Our First Class tournament will be known by the name of Brian Lara Shield; and it will be simulated by @NILAYSHAH60
The List A tournament will be known as PlanetCricket's World Series or simply, World Series; it will be simulated by @Na Maloom Afraad
And the Twenty20 tournament will be known as Super Smash! T20; and it will be simulated by @Manish.

FORMATS

It was decided by TPCL management that each tournament will have a different playoff/knockout format to add some spice and flavor to the league.

Brian Lara Shield by @NILAYSHAH60 will be a double round-robin league culminating in a one-off final between the top-two teams at an iconic neutral venue.
World Series by @Na Maloom Afraad will be a double round-robin league culminating in a "Best of 3" finals series between the top-two teams.
Super Smash! T20 by @Manish. will be a double round-robin league culminating in a page playoff between the top-three teams!

Besides the official league fixtures; each team will play a preseason game in each format against Invitational XIs arranged by TPCL management.

SIMULATORS

@NILAYSHAH60 and @Na Maloom Afraad will be using Syed-Ur-Rahman's CrickSim to simulate Brian Lara Shield and World Series matches, respectively.
Whereas @Manish. will use a Twenty20 simulator he designed himself to run Super Smash! T20.

If you have any queries regarding player ratings; have a look at this post.

PRIZE MONEY

Each tournament will have a pot of 50 Million vCash.

Winning franchise (:goldo:) will receive 25 Million vCash
Franchise finishing 2nd (:slvo:) will receive 15 Million vCash
Franchise finishing 3rd (:bro:) will receive 5 Million vCash

And lastly; Player of the Series for each format will receive 5 Million vCash

VENUES & PITCH TYPES

TPCL management will require each team to name their official homeground for the season AND allot pitch types for each format.

AVAILABLE PITCHES

  1. :bat::left: FLAT - A batsman-friendly pitch which provides little or no assistance to bowlers. Expect big totals.
  2. :ar::up: NORMAL - Provides an evenly balanced contest for all disciplines.
  3. :right::left: DRY - Plenty of turn on offer for spinners and a good place to bat for spin-savvy batsmen. Good pace bowlers are still likely to thrive.
  4. :left::right: DUSTY - Ideal for slow and spin bowlers as the name suggests. Sometimes quite difficult to bat on.
  5. :bwl::up: GREEN - A lot of movement on offer, making it ideal for bowlers capable of swinging the ball. Batting expected to become easier as the match progresses
  1. :bat::left: FLAT - A batsman-friendly pitch which provides little or no assistance to bowlers - expect big totals.
  2. :ar::left: HARD - Ideal conditions for batting with a good deal of bounce on offer for fast bowlers as well - not ideal for spinners.
  3. :ar::up: NORMAL - Provides an evenly balanced contest for all disciplines.
  4. :right::left: DRY - Plenty of turn on offer for spinners and a good place to bat for spin-savvy batsmen. Good pace bowlers are still likely to thrive.

  6. :bwl::up: GREEN - A lot of movement on offer, making it ideal for bowlers capable of swinging the ball. Batting expected to become easier as the match progresses
  7. :bwl::left: DAMP - Massively in favor of all bowlers and an absolute nightmare to bat on - expect incredibly low scores and hard-grafts here.
  8. :up::down: TRICKY - Random conditions for each game with the effects of each discipline dialed up to eleven.
  1. :bat::left: FLAT - A batsman-friendly pitch which provides little or no assistance to bowlers - expect big totals.

PRESEASON BEGINS TOMORROW!

With every single league prelude out of the way; we are ready for the commencement of The PlanetCricket League 4... with The World Series' preseason beginning tomorrow!

In the meantime, TPCL Management would like to elaborate on the Activity Upgrades for the season to all four franchises.

ACTIVITY UPGRADES

- For the first time in the league's history, we will have TWO Activity Upgrades. One at the half-season mark; and the other post-season (before playoffs/knockouts).
- This was a decision taken to increase activity between users post-midseason; which hasn't been the case traditionally, as well as to make up for the lack of format specialists.
- Each format's activity will be entirely separate from the other two - a player can potentially obtain activity upgrades for one format, and miss out on the rest.

WORLD SERIES & SUPER SMASH! T20

- Each member will need to post on average 2 messages per match-thread for both formats - that amounts to a minimum of 6 posts across 3 games.
- However, You can not dump 6 posts in one thread and move on; you need 1 post for each game thread (at least) to be eligible for an activity upgrade.

BRIAN LARA SHIELD

- Each member will need to post on average 4 messages per match-thread for Brian Lara Shield - that amounts to a minimum of 12 posts across 3 games.
- However, You can not dump 12 posts in one thread and move on; you need 1 post for each game thread (at least) to be eligible for an activity upgrade.
- Given the nature of the Brian Lara Shield; each Test will last up to 5 days in real time since each day will be posted separately.
- You will have five days (potentially) to get your one message in; but you will still require a total of 12 posts across 3 games for an activity upgrade.

MID-SEASON UPGRADES

As we approach the mid-season break; we presume it is the best time to let every team know that the cut-off time for posting messages is until 48-hours after the last official post is made in the Round 3 matches of Super Smash! Twenty20.

Every member of your team has enough time to get all their messages in until 48 hours have passed since the end of Round 3 games of the Super Smash! Twenty20.

And as a friendly reminder, much like every other season, team owners are required to submit activity upgrades on their own. We will only cross-check and approve them.
