World Cup and Games this weekend

The finale of the biggest cricket event on this planet happens to be on this Sunday (Saturday night PST). Understandably, a lot of CricBay players will be watching it all night and they will have to play their scheduled game on Sunday. There have been numerous requests to help find grounds and other suggestions. We will NOT be able to postpone the games but here's what we are proposing. Please read carefully and this is applicable ONLY for the games scheduled on Sunday (03/29/2015)

  1. Teams can reach out to each other and decide to play either a full game, a 15 over game or a 10 over game
  2. The two captains must make a decision by 9PM pm on Thursday March 26, 2015 if they want to play a shortened game.
  3. They have the option of two alternate start times (other than the standard 08.30 am)
    • start at 09.45 am and play a 15 over per side game
    • start at 10.30 am and play a 10 over per side game
  4. Start time means the first ball is to be bowled at or before the above specific time.
    • teams that intended to start at 9.45 am can choose to do a 10.30 am start if they are not ready
    • in other words if the game starts at 09.45 am they play 15 overs or it becomes a 10 over per-side game
  5. If the ground is lost before the game is completed
    • If both teams have not played ten overs, then the game is deemed to have been abandoned
    • If the team batting second has played 75% or more of their inning at the time of interruption, the game will be decided by D/L
  6. This is a one-off situation and is only applicable for March 29 2015 and is to enable everyone to enjoy watching the CWC 2015 final. This is irrespective of who plays in the final.

Note: if you do end up playing reduced overs remember to enter the reduced overs during brief scorecard entry so your DRR does not get impacted.

YuME 2014 Fall Open Final rankings and 2014 Season Rankings

YuMe 2014 Fall Open final rankings are calculated after including forfiet penalities. For each forfiet game -1 DRR was applied to forfieting team. 2014 Season Rankings are calculated taking an average of 2014 Regular Season and Fall open rankings.

The 2014 Season rankings will be used as initial rankings for 2015 Season and New teams will be ranked at the bottom in the order they registered. Note that the Teams marked in red in season rankings have opted out for 2015 season.

We have included only those 95 teams which paid before the deadline.. so, we have 95 Teams and Group A will have a "Dummy Team" and all teams will get 4 points (and 0 DRR) in lieu of the missing team.

If you spot any errors or have any questions please open a ticket "COLA - General Query".. Please do NOT email.

Welcome to YuMe CricBay 2014 Fall Open Finals

Dear CricBay,

It's that time of the year again. The culmination of  everything we have done and worked so hard for this whole season. The grand finale which will probably be our biggest and grandest so far. and Yes, we are back to having all our 4 finals at the same location at the same time !!

Bala, Thoths and Prasanna have showed us what can be done with belief and perseverance (What a semi finals win !) along with skills,  Challengers are back in finals again. They will be the familiar face and are brimming with confidance. This is going to be a lot of fun.

Raging Bulls will face Rebels, both teams have so much talent that the game could very have been Platinum finals.  Abhishek Iyer has led his talented team very wll and won the semi finals with a captains knock. Bulls will face a team that has Rohit, Arvind an Karthikraj (who all know a thing or two about winning big games) and this promises to be one mouth watering game.

Yuva XI will take on Force XI.. again, two teams that could have played platinum.. This is surely one of the finest Silver finals we will ever have with the kind of talent in both teams.

Birds XI will play their first finals (and we are supper happy for one of the most supportive, longest serving teams in CricBay) and will have to beat a very talented Seals. Another fantastic matchup.

It goes without saying, 8 of the very best teams from their divisions have worked hard, focussed throughout a highly competetive season and stayed consistent and readhed their pinnacle.

Excited Yet? So what are you waiting for ? Have you confirmed your attendance on our invite

CricBay 2014 in Numbers

This is a bird’s eye view of (approximately) what happened in 2014.  Note that I tried my best to look at numbers for the Calendar year (Games that happened between January 1, 2014 and December 31, 2014). I am not guaranteeing that this is 100% accurate, but it should be pretty pretty close enough.

Almost 3000 players batted, about 1900 bowled.. lots of runs and lots of wickets..

YuME 2014 Fall Open RRII Buffer Weekend Update

Weekend of Jan 31, 2015 will be the buffer weekend for YuME 2014 Fall Open RRII.

CoLa will not add any more buffer weekends even if some of games get abandoned due to weather in the next 3 weekends. This is to ensure we don't delay the tournaments dates for 2015 and beyond, and we are already behind schedule compared to previous years.

CoLa will schedule the 1st abandoned game for teams for the most part.  If your team has 1 abandoned game and you don't see your game scheduled that means your opponent has 2 abandoned games and your game happens to be their 2 game.

To optimize the Buffer Weekend schedule and make it better for the teams, CoLA has scheduled some games differently for couple of groups.
