Middlesex Cricket is delighted to announce that for the 2021 season, our innovative and engaging free fantasy cricket prediction game, Know Your Cricket, is back!
We’ve listened to feedback from the thousands of fans who’ve enjoyed playing the game over the last two seasons, and it’s back, bigger and better than ever before!
After launching in 2019, Know Your Cricket proved a huge success in its inaugural year and engaged fans throughout the entire summer! Last year’s cricketing hiatus saw us launch the game for the Vitality Blast only, however in 2021, we’re back, with all three formats well and truly covered!
The key to Know You Cricket’s success is its simplicity and ease of play! It couldn’t be simpler to register, couldn’t be simpler to play, and takes only a couple of minutes before each game to pick your predictions – then just sit back, keep your fingers crossed, hope your batters hit runs, hope your bowlers take wickets, and hope your fielder clings on to those towering catches!
Once again, this year, players will be able to select a wildcard prediction, allowing you to not only select your winning team, your leading run-scorer and your leading wicket-taker, but with your wildcard player, you can also add that extra bit of punch to your team, with extra points on offer for your Wildcard’s batting, bowling AND fielding performances!
Also this year, in all formats, there are loads of bonus points up for grabs for predicting the correct aggregate number of runs scored in the game, not just in the first innings, allowing you to earn bonus points over the entire course of the match should you predict the correct total number of runs scored in the game!
You'll also have the chance to go head-to-head with Middlesex Club legend, and Club President, Mike Selvey, in the BEAT THE LEGEND challenge. Every week Selve will make his own selections, and your predictions will be matched against his, in a game-by-game challenge to determine who comes out on top. Can you beat the legend?
With the Junior’s League up and running, Know Your Cricket also appeals to the young cricket lovers out there and there are plenty of prizes up for grabs! With an array of signed shirts and other awards on offer, Know Your Cricket really is THE game to get involved in this year!

Middlesex’s Head of Marcomms, Steven Fletcher, commented:
“We are really excited to be launching Know Your Cricket across all three formats of the game in 2021, offering our fans a whole new level of virtual engagement over the season ahead.
“We know that nothing can possibly replicate the excitement and enjoyment of watching the action live at the ground, however, Know Your Cricket will provide our members and fans with a level of engagement online that will get them invested in the games, putting their Middlesex knowledge to the test, whilst being able to watch the action on screen from the comfort of their own homes, on the Club’s enhanced live streaming service until its safe for fans to return to grounds.
“Our thanks as always goes to the team at Digital Marmalade, the creators of Know Your Cricket, who continue to listen to feedback from us and those who play the game, with the developers continuing to enhance the gaming experience each and every year.
“We can’t wait to get Know Your Cricket up and running again in 2021, and I only hope that I can perform slightly more admirably this year in the Middlesex office league than I managed to in 2020!”
“Good luck to all the players – get yourselves registered to play now and get your predictions in for the season opener against Somerset on 08th April.”
