Fantasy Women's #WT20

This week has seen the launch of the Women's Cricket Blog Fantasy Women's World T20 - an online game which allows you to pick your own Women's Cricket Dream Team and follow them through the upcoming World T20 in Bangladesh!

The game was devised by Martin Davies of http://womens-cricket.blogspot.co.uk/ and programmed by me - a rare (and welcome) opportunity to bring home my day job, writing computer software!

Our goal was to create something really simple - no budgets, no tinkering - you just chose your team and then sit back and watch them (hopefully) rack-up points over the course of the tournament.

To kick things off, Martin invited a select group of cricketing celebs to submit their teams to an 'Experts' league - I was delighted (and flattered) to see entries from the likes of George Dobell and Arran Brindle.

For my team, I've gone for:

Batsman - Mithali Raj (Ind), Sara McGlashan (NZ), Deandra Dottin (WI), Mignon du Preez (SA)
All-Rounders - Ellyse Perry (Aus), Stafanie Taylor (WI)
Wicketkeeper - Sarah Taylor (Eng)
Bowlers - Danni Hazell (Eng), Morna Neilsen (NZ), Moseline Daniels (SA), Jhulan Goswami (Ind)

Think you can do better? Hop over to the game and have a go! (There's even a small prize for the winners - 3 pairs of tickets for the England/India Test this summer, kindly donated by the folks at Wormsley Cricket.)
