In this version, the action gets wilder with the introduction of new leagues and players. Some of the highlights of the game include WAP availability, SMS Alert, Desktop Widgets, Integration with Facebook, Friendster and Orkut, Forums, expert Blogs and EDMs.

There will be consolation prizes for the top ten.

Rules and regulations of the Media League stipulate that only journalists employed by accredited publications/channels are eligible for prizes in the media league and the winners will be announced after due deliberation on the eligibility criterion.

The Super Selector Game is based on the ICC cricket season. This would also consist of IPL tournament, Champion League tournament, and a few non-ICC cricket tournaments.

Super Selector points will be scored from the real life performance of the players in selected Test, ODI and Twenty20 international cricket matches. A full list may be found in the Super Selector calendar.

The game is split into multiple Stages and there are 3 Game Weeks within each stage. Prizes will be awarded to the highest point scoring managers of Game Days and Stages.

Registration has to be done on before beginning. Each Super Selector teams will receive a ‘Super Selector Stars / Budget‘ to select a team of cricket players. The Super Selector Team will then receive Super Selector Points based on the real life performance of selected players. Points for each of the three teams will then be added together to give you a Super Selector score and league ranking.
