  1. Dear Sir,
    Happy New Year 2018.
    I have started playing BBL Fantasy League few days back.
    Just today, I have gone through your Terms & Conditions more attentively and found that anyone of the world can play the game but only Australian Users/Citizens are eligible for prizes which is very much unlikely from EPL Fantasy League. Can you please clarify if we are not eligible for prizes why we are allowed to enter into the game? Am just need to get my confusion cleared up.
    Thanks for arranging BBL.

  2. Thanks for your reply and understood this is the condition of Australian Cricket Board and thus it is better not to allow anybody out of Australia to register any team in BBL Fantasy League. At least we can enjoy the BBL T20 freely and continue playing EPL Fantasy League.
    Happy Fantastic BBL Fantasy League.
