The season is upon us. The 2017 telegraph fantasy cricket is now open for registration. Who's in your team this year?

For me Siddy is an absolute steal as one of the cheapest bowlers while Jennings is worth a punt against division two attacks.

Thanks Tom for the info. I have been checking for when it was set-up for the past few days.

There will be a League from the forum when I get round to setting one up. Details will follow.

Here is the link to the game.

I have set a league up for us.

Name White Rose Forum
Pin 8031036

Matches and scoring start Friday 7th. Participants can make as many player transfers as they want before then.

Beware of selecting England players, as there will be very limited availability for their counties this summer with the crowded International schedule. Only scores from CC matches and 50 over matches count to the DT Fantasy cricket.

The link follows to the login page with full details of the scoring system and rules.

I should have made a note of where I went horribly wrong last year in order not to make the same mistake again.

Now I've learned that I can make use of it, for next season.

Not done this before but will enter a team in the next couple of days.
And Glenn McGrath dismissed for 2 just 98 runs short of his century.

I've been less frugal this year and entered 3 teams which means i'm confident atleast one of them won't finish dead last, with some luck.

If you pick a team before midnight on Sunday 2nd April the Telegraph will double your teams. Probable add an equal amount of credits to your original purchase.
