2010-2011 Ashes Fantasy Game

Sportsbet has launched a new Ashes Fantasy Game. Pick your best eleven and try to win your share of $10,000 in cash & prizes. Prizes are awarded after each test and at the end of the series. You have to join Sportsbet to take part, but no deposit is necessary.

To participate, simply pick eleven players for each test. You have to choose exactly 5 Batsmen, 1 All-Rounder, 1 Wicketkeeper and 4 Bowlers. As a further restriction, you cannot have more than six players from the same team.

I’ve had a play around, and it’s a very simple game to participate in. Those who are unfamiliar with cricket will have no problem.

You can create private leagues to track your performance against your mates and play for pride.

Just be sure to get your first tips in before 11:00 am AEDT, Thu 25 November.
