Playing fantasy cricket is alot of fun, if it is State cricket.
I never bother participating in International fixture fantasy leagues because the thought (and common sense you have to in order to get enough points) of selecting other International players (England) in my team is unnacceptable.
This is why State Twenty20 fantasy leagues are alot fun.
Myself and a couple of Twitter followers (as well as some of the Baggy Green contributors) have created our teams and joined our own league to battle it out for the KFC Big Bash 2010/11 fantasy league at Fox Sports.
It's quick, easy and will provide some good fun over the Twenty20 series.

AUSTRALIAN CRICKET NEWS?
The Boxing Day test is near, but not much to report other than Usman Khawaja has been called in as stand by for Ricky Ponting. Still think David Hussey or Cameron White would have been suitable given their home ground knowledge and reputation to the Poms, but Khawaja has been consistent and is in good form.
A reminder on the situation. It is currently 1-1, three tests down, two to go.
England require one win to retain the Urn, we require two wins or a win and a draw to regain the Urn.
I tip us to win the Boxing Day test, while the SCG will see out a draw. The batting is the key as if that clicks it will ease pressure off our bowlers even more. The batting has been letting us down (as it did in 2009, courtesy of inconsistency).
