Covert your sales units into runs. For example, every unit sold could be a run. That way, the salesperson with the most runs, wins.
You might also want to accommodate range-based scoring rules.
A simple Excel sheet might be able to do this but will involve a lot of effort to collate, run logic.
You could also create cricket-themed leaderboards.
This will help drive the excitement further. Your leaderboards should be refreshed as often as possible to keep the data current.
Probably the most important aspects of the program/contest. Constant and structured communication is going to help you increase participation.
Teasers: Launching proper cricket-themed teasers is going to help build hype. Regular teasers (maybe once every week) 30 days before the contest launch will work wonders.
Launch communication: Covers key aspects such as timelines, launch dates, rules, and awards.
Winner communication/Leaderboards: Recognising good performers is going to motivate other participants to perform. It is also going to help excite people about contests you might run in the future.
Where are you going to run this program?
There are a couple of easy options such as email threads, messaging channels. You could post your excel leaderboards and your PDF in one of these channels. To run your contest with one of these communication channels as your background you will need to:
Constantly and manually update your Excel spreadsheet or tracker.
Update your themed posters and leaderboards.
