Your team consists of 4 Batsmen, 2 All Rounders, 1 Wicketkeeper, 4 Bowlers and one emergency for each position
If you have not selected a full team, including emergencies, then your team will not participate in the next round.
You have an extra player per playing position, who will act as an emergency if a player in your starting XI for that position doesn't play.
The emergency players points will only count to your score after a player in that position has not played in all their teams matches for that round.
Players that are listed in the team when the game starts will count, even if they score 0 points or they never get the chance to take to the field due to rain, so long as a ball has been bowled in that match.
If a game is abandoned before the toss or before a ball has been bowled, those players are not considered to have played a game.
You are able to select a Captain who will earn you double points. You can do this by clicking the 'C' button on a player in your starting XI
If you don't select a Captain, nothing bad will happen, you just miss out on the opportunity for extra points.
If your captain scores a negative points, that will still be doubled.
In between regular season rounds, team owners are allowed to completed 2 trades.
You will only be able to complete your trades if you have enough money.
The Royal London Cup has a rolling lockout, where players can be traded up until their teams first game. You can also adjust your team and captain so long as their team has yet to play.
You can undo your trades before a round lockout period starts, but once a round starts all trades are final
Note that you can make an unlimited number of changes up until the start of the competition
Players will have their price adjusted after they have played 3 games.
A player can have more than one price adjustment if they play more than one game in a round.
Leagues head-to-head leagues must have six or more complete teams to begin. If not, the starting round of the league will be pushed to the following round.
Public head-to-head leagues may be autofilled during their first round if they do not have enough teams.
In a head-to-head league, you play head-to-head against another team in your league, with teams ranked on a ladder based off those results.
In an open league, teams are ranked of their total points and the ladder updated at the end of each round.
League Owners have control over the structure of the league, the number of teams allowed, if it is head-to-head or open and what round it starts.
For the Royal London Cup, all leagues will have the top six teams play in the Final across 3 final rounds.
You get 4 points for a win, 2 for a draw, and no points for a loss. Teams are then ordered by most points, then by percentage (points scored in matches as a percentage of points conceded)
Game fixtures are highly likely to change due to covid restrictions. Games may be cancelled or postponed
Matches may change rounds without notice and total number of rounds may change. Attempts will be made to try and ensure a fair fixture, but it won't always be possible.
