    Few queries @Batman
    First Class match commentary will finish in one day ?

    Will we dedicate specific timings for each match ?

    All matches will be played simultaneously or we wait for match 1 to finish before starting match 2 ?

    To be posted in 2 days.

    1-2 days on first day and 3-5 days on second day.

    One match will be posted at a time.

    During normal days timings will be between 1pm to 3am PST.

    During Ramadan it will be b 5pm to 5am PST.

    Timings will also depend on availability when I have time to post it and simmer availability as well.

    It will take a week just to get through the first round.

    Agreed. I donít mind having the three same-round matches run simultaneously or at least back to back on the same day

    If itís not too much trouble for the mods. We understand youíre busy of course.

    All 3 round matches to be completed in 2 days.

    The pattern of posting matches will be same as recent concluded PSL.

    @jeetu @Batman and all others:

    Do you guys think the current T20 playoofs format is fine, or do you think adding eliminator and qualifiers ala PSL is better? IMO the PSL was format was a lot of fun, and it adds the extra incentive of finishing 1st/2nd as well. As of right now, most teams would just look to sneak into the T20 top 4, as is the case for ODs at the moment.

    Let me know what y'all think!

    Agreed with playoffs format. There is genuine incentive to target top position.

    Oh I didn't check the knockout format till now.

    Yes agree playoffs make much better sense. Both ODIs and T20s should be having playoffs. The team finishing at the top of the table deserves the extra incentive.

    I agree and wouldn't mind it in ODs also, although typically ODs don't have that format.

    Problem now though is that we're already halfway into the OD tournament so I'm not sure if it can/should be implemented.

    Luckily we haven't started T20s yet though so I don't think anyone should have much of a problem with implementing it for those.

    We being halfway into the ODIs doesn't make any difference. I am sure every team has played to win so far and not to just finish in the top 4.

    Moreover it doesn't make sense to implement the change in one format and not in the other.

    You'll see otherwise when you go into the Tigers thread and see them openly talk about sneaking into the top 4 when planning strategies.

    It's not the wisest of moves to change the format midway through any competition.

    Then let the T20s remain as is too.

    We can implement the following format.

    One-Day Competition

    Each team plays each other twice (home and away) before 1st place team direct entry to Final and team 2nd, 3rd and 4th place teams qualifies for the playoffs named Knockout and Semi Final. The winner of Knockout will play the 1st place team in the Final.

    Knockout (3rd v 4th) to be host by 3rd place team.

    Semi Final (2nd v Winner of Knockout) to be host by 2nd place team

    Final (1st v Winner of Knockout) to be played in natural ground.

    Twenty20 Cup

    Each team plays each other twice (home and away) before top 4 teams qualifies for the playoffs named Qualifier, Eliminator, Challenger and Final.

    Qualifier (1st v 2nd) to be host by 1st place team.

    Eliminator (3rd v 4th) to be host by 3rd place team.

    Challanger (Loser of Qualifier v Winner of Eliminator) to be host by loser of Qualifier.

    Final (Winner of Qualifier v Winner of Challanger) to be played in natural ground.

    How? One tournament's started, the other hasn't.

    Anyway, if Batman himself is fine with it, then I have no problems.

    Letís not change One Day. We used our boosts accordingly since weíre halfway through the tournament, else we would have saved our boosts for T20. For example, we would not be using 3 of our boosts on our current match against Hawks if we had such a slim chance of making it.

    These rules were decided in advance before the tournament started ó if you want, change T20s. But letís not tamper with a format that weíre already halfway through (it benefits teams that know they are top of the table already).

    Agree with this, but to be fair to everyone maybe we shouldn't change T20s either.

    We could all agree to implement these after the mid season.
    That way everyone will start from scratch regarding boosts, team combinations, contract swaps etc.

    Teams wonít be starting from scratch. It will benefit teams that are already top of the table else you wouldnít even be suggesting this

    Letís keep the OD format the same atleast... all teams wonít be starting from scratch. We have used our boosts according to this format.

    Well it does make logical sense. There should be some kind of incentive for the table topper, else it takes just one bad day to get knocked out.

    I guess the top 2 teams will get to select the pitch and call toss in the semi-finals. But I think it's too late to change the OD format now at least.

    Agreed, but this should have been a concern raised before the tournament started, not after we already know which teams are likely to be the table toppers and after teams strategized their boosts accordingly (which do not start from scratch because they affect where you stand in different formats)

    Also I find it hard to understand how you can use boosts "accordingly" so that you just manage to stay in the top 4. Makes zero sense to me.

    This "keep things simple" thing is what kills all interest. First the international player draft where all players had the same skill numbers, then the restriction of not being able to boost Diamond players to full capacity, and now this.

    The organizers need to put their foot down for once so that this thing just does not become a boring drag.

    All these things shouldíve been recommended before the tournament. I donít see any specific why we should change all of these things - it will cause confusions.

    Half the tournament is still to go and things can change. We are not guaranteed the top spot.

    And conversely, semis benefit the teams that are languishing at the bottom half of the table.

    Rules are not set in stone that they cannot change. We haven't reached the knockouts yet so how does it make any difference how the knockout format is designed?

    Teams claiming they used boosts just to barely make the top 4, just wow!

    Dude weíre just playing by the rules. If you want to change things, donít do it for a format where you already have a considerable advantage.

    Agree 100%

    It's super weird to make fundamental changes midway through the tournament.

    Half of the season has almost finished, changing rules/patterns/formats at this time would be idiotic imo, we should keep it as it is, we should have talked about this before it all started but we(including me) were busy with teams, changing player types, contracts etc, so i don't think now is the right time to raise all the queries.

    Further, if anything is decided(wrt changes) and everyone is ok with the changes, then that would be ok for me as well.

    Away wins carry more points so teams with less away matches after mid season will be at a disadvantage straight away. And thats Us.

    Some teams kept boosts for T20s and may have lost couple of ODIs against opponents using extra boosts. so this effects t20s also.

    All in all, we can not change the format now.
