Figures highlighted in red are the skippers evaluation of batting and bowling rankings for players who have not yet qualified. The evaluation is the lowest ranking the player is likely to achieve, unless it is obvious the player is a higher Level, in which case the higher points will be awarded.

Note: If you want to see the stats that make up your batting and bowling points, these can be viewed on the website if you click on '2012 Season->Stats (Full)', or click here to go straight to it. Scroll across to the right of either the batting or bowling stats till you eventually see your figures for past 3 years.

DETAILED VERSION

Selection Criteria
Selection each week is based on several factors, the main one being how often you reply to the 'Availability' emails each week, and to a lesser extent your cricketing ability and loyalty to the club. This selection process will only be enacted on occasions throughout the season when more than 11 regular players are available for selection. It is mainly designed to reward people for making the skipper's life a lot easier. So basically the team will pick itself each week, (ie) the players will decide their own fate. If you are not going to be available for a period of up to 3 weeks, simply let the skipper know, who will note it down on your behalf. This will save you replying each week while you're temporarily unavailable.

Preference for selection will be given to those players who are part of the 'Playing Squad', (ie) those players who wish to participate in games throughout the season on a regular basis or semi Playing basis, and also reply to the weekly 'Availability' emails. (See current 'Playing Squad' above). Only the 'Playing Squad' members need to reply each week, but anyone else can declare their availability for selection, but will only be selected if the team is short of regular players. There are exceptions however - see 'Nepotism Rule' below. You can join the 'Playing Squad' at any time by making this known to the skipper. Alternatively, you can be removed from the 'Playing Squad' if you so desire. Also, if you fail to reply to the availability email in 4 consecutive weeks, you will automatically be removed from the 'Playing Squad', but can rejoin the squad simply by buying the skipper a couple of beers after your first game back!.

A table is produced after midday every Wed with a running count of each players points, and selection will be based on how high you are on the list and the requirements of a balanced team of batsmen and bowlers, (ie) the higher up the list, the more likely you will be selected. Remember, if you don't reply you don't get any points!

This selection criteria is presently a work in motion, and will be continually changed and adapted till the fairest system is found. Therefore these are not hard and fast rules, and other factors such as opposition strength etc, will be looked at before any decision is made.

Availability Points
Players are rewarded for replying to the weekly 'Availability' email by midday Wed each week, and bonus points for being available to play. If you reply (or are contacted) after the deadline, even if declaring your availability, you gain no points. You also gain no points if you pull out of the match after the team is announced. If you declare 'Available' and are not selected to play, you will still get the full points.

Points are awarded as follows:

8 pts    Reply to weekly email as 'Available'
4 pts    Reply to weekly email as 'Unavailable'
0 pts    No reply to weekly email

Batting and Bowling Points
These are based on your cricketing ability. Just a quick note here. NepotistsCC never has (or ever will be) purely about cricketing ability, and rightly so, as the ethos of the club has always been about having a run around on top class cricket fields with mates on a Sunday afternoon, without any 'League' mentality, or the result of the match being everything, but of course competitive; followed by a few beers and a bit of banter in the bar after the game. But this cricketing ability section is a necessary addition designed to balance out the team, as opposed to selecting a team based purely on email replies. Otherwise for example, the team could end up with11 batsmen one week or 11 bowlers another week. This will also help any temporary or future skippers to be able to fall straight into the job if so required with minimal effort, and hopefully take this long term frustrating part away from the Nepotists skipper.

Batting and bowling rankings are based on your record over the past 3 years, or less if you you've only been with the club a short time. If it is your first year or you haven't played enough games to qualify, a subjective evaluation will be made at 'nets' by the skipper, or over the first few games you play. The skipper will select the lowest Levels of batting and bowling which he thinks you may achieve once you have qualified; unless it is obvious you are a higher Level, in which case you will be awarded the higher level.

These rankings can change throughout the season for newer players once 'form' has been established, but is unlikely to change for longer term players during the current season.

Points are awarded as follows:

Batting
5 pts    Batting average is 40 runs or more
4 pts    Batting average  is between 30 and 40 runs
3 pts    Batting average is between 20 and 30 runs
2 pt      Batting average is between 10 and 20 runs
1 pt      Batting average is less than 10 runs

Bowling
Bowling points are based equally on your bowling average (runs per wicket) and economy rate (runs per over), then divided by 2 to give a final ranking out of 5.

Average
5 pts    Bowling average is less than 15 runs per wicket
4 pts    Bowling average is between 15 and 20 runs per wicket
3 pts    Bowling average is between 20 and 25 runs per wicket
2 pts    Bowling average is between 25 and 30 runs per wicket
1 pt      Bowling average is more than 30 runs per wicket

Economy
5 pts    Economy rate is less than 4.5 runs per over
4 pts    Economy rate is between 4.5 and 5.0 runs per over
3 pts    Economy rate is between 5.0 and 5.5 runs per over
2 pts    Economy rate is between 5.5 and 6.0 runs per over
1 pt      Economy rate is more than 6 runs per over

Your final selection points for batting and bowling are based on the following. You get full points for the highest of either your batting or bowling points. You then get an extra point if you are a Level 3, 4, or 5 in the other discipline.

Example 1:  If you are a Level 4 batsmen and a Level 3 bowler, your total batting/bowling ranking is 5 (ie) 4 points for batting and 1 point for bowling.

Example 1:  If you are a Level 4 batsmen and a Level 2 bowler, your total batting/bowling ranking is 4 (ie) 4 points for batting and 0 points for bowling.

Example 2: If you are a Level 5 bowler and a Level 4 batsmen, your total batting/bowling ranking is 6 (ie) 5 points for bowling and 1 point for batting.

Wicket Keeper
The wicket keeper will be regarded as a Level 3 bowler for the sake of completeness.

3 pts    Wicketkeeper

Loyalty Points
1) You can gain 1 extra point each week by having been available to play in at least 30 games in the previous 3 season or less. This roughly equates to being available to play for half a season each year. Once you have qualified for this Loyalty point you keep it for the remainder of the current season and the whole of the following season.

2) You are awarded a 'one off' 5 points for each of the most recent NepotistsCC events you attend throughout the season. You can only be awarded these additional 5 point options once per season.

Points are awarded as follows:

1 pt      If you have been available to play in at least 30 games in the past 3 seasons. (Applied weekly)
5 pts    If you attend any of the Nepotists golf days. (Awarded once per season)
5 pts    If you attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM). (Awarded once per season)
5 pts    If you attend the Oxford Tour in Aug for a least 1 day, even if you don't play. (Awarded once per season)

More Examples

Example 1
You are a Level 3 batsmen and a Level 1 bowler, and you reply to the weekly email as 'Available' before midday Wed (8pts), you will receive 11 points. (ie) 3 + 0 + 8 = 11pts

Example 2
You are a Level 3 batsmen and a Level 4 bowler, and you reply to the weekly email as 'Unavailable' before midday Wed (4pts), and you have also been available to play 35 games in the previous 3 seasons (1 pt), you will receive 10 points. (ie) 1 + 4 + 4 + 1 = 10 pts

Example 3
You are any Level batsmen or bowler, and you don't  reply to the weekly email, you receive no points.

Example 4
You are any Level batsmen or bowler, and you  reply to the weekly email after midday Wed (or are contacted for your availability), and you are still selected to play, you receive no points.

Example 5 (Loyalty Points)
You have been available to play 24 games in the previous 2 seasons (or less) and have been available to play 6 games in the current season, then you immediately become eligible to receive a Loyalty point for the rest of the current season and also the following season.

Example 6 (Loyalty Points)
In your previous 3 seasons before the current season you have been available to play for example, 6 games (Season 1), 12 games (Season 2), 10 games (Season 3), Total 28 games. Therefore you do not qualify for the bonus point in the current season. However, once you have been available to play 8 games in the current season, those games will supersede the Season 1 games and make you eligible for the extra Loyalty point for the rest of the current season and also the following season.

New Players
We don't want to restrict new players from joining the club partway through the season, or becoming part of the 'Playing Squad', so we will endeavour to make places available at frequent intervals. This will possibly mean that one or two of the regular players may miss out on selection in that particular week even though they are available to play. So as not to be disadvantaged, if these new players wish to become part of the 'Playing Squad' they will be allocated 'Availability Points' that are equivalent to having replied 'Unavailable' for all the weeks before the they joined the club, plus their evaluated batting and bowling Ranking Points.

Nepotism Rule
Exceptions will be made for:

1) Players who have been with the club for a long period of time, and only play very infrequently, sometimes years apart.
2) Players who may have been part of the regular team in recent years, but have returned home overseas, or are working abroad, and are back in the UK for a short period of time.

Under most circumstances a place in the team would be made available for these players.
