    Darn. Was tempted to go No on Cook as well. Bloody pessimism...

    Hmmm, I thought England for 551 last time. So the answer is No to question 4 (assuming no more play by COB day 3)

    It would be bloody hilarious if they closed on exactly 551.

    EDIT: And they do.

    Question 3: Will Cook have completed back-to-back double tons by COP on day 3?

    Not even 150; what a hack. So "no"

    Fallers:

    Spark Yes
    candy -
    Pothas -
    Vimes -


    Standing:

    Howe_zat No
    stephen No
    Pickup No


    Question 4: Will England have exceeded their 1st innings total from the 2006 Adelaide test (551) by COP on day 3?

    Cricketing gods not without a sense of humour it seems. Exactly 551, so "no".

    Fallers:

    Howe_zat Yes


    Standing:

    stephen No
    Pickup No


    For our remaining duo:

    Question 5: Will the next wicket fall to a right-arm seam-up bowler?

    Question 6: Will Ian Bell complete his ton?


    As question 6 could conceivably be answered before question 5 the first one to be resolved in real time will decide our winner.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Pickup didn't vote and I got the first question wrong. Hmmm.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Tie break question needed.

    To the nearest 10, how many runs could Geoffrey Boycott's mum score on this pitch?
