    Last Man Standing: Ashes 2009

    I think Kyle did this for the 2006/07 series and I'm going to try to give it a go this time. At the close of each day's play I'll post a 50/50 question along the lines of "Will X player score more than Y runs/take more than Z wickets", if you answer correctly you stay in, if not: gonesville.

    The first day is slightly different as we don't know who'll be batting, so I'm going to make it about the total number of runs scored on the first day. Over the last 3 Ashes series the median score at the close on day one is 330.67 runs, which seems a nice round figure to start with. So the first question is this:

    Will 330 runs be scored on day one?

    Yes or no answers please.

    I'll say yes.
