Luke Diss won Fox Sports’ Fantasy 20/20 Cricket competition.

Self-proclaimed cricket nerd Luke Diss pocketed a handy $5000 in prizemoney after winning Fox Sports’ Fantasy 20/20 Cricket competition on Friday night.

The internet-based competition, which runs similarly to the AFL’s Dream Team or Supercoach, was held in conjunction with the recent Big Bash Twenty20 cricket tournament and featured thousands of contestants nation-wide.

Diss’ team, ‘‘Dissrespectful’’, accumulated 10,558 points in total across the 10 rounds and bettered his nearest rival by more than 400 points after coming down to the Big Bash final in which the Perth Scorchers defeated the Hobart Hurricanes on Friday night.

A senior cricketer at Echuca South, Diss devoted many hours to researching different players and monitoring injuries throughout the season, despite his girlfriend Adrienne’s displeasure.

Diss said the time and effort had been worth it and will spend the prizemoney on an engine for his refurbished 1974 Valiant Charger.
