    Last Man Standing: Ashes 2010/11

    An awed hush, please. After the triumph of the previous series, LMS is back for the forthcoming tussle for the little urn.

    For newcomers, the absent-minded and the mentally infirm the concept is devastatingly simple: I (or someone else if I'm absent for any reason) proposes a question related to the forthcoming day's play that can be answered "yes" or "no"; if your prognostication turns out to be correct you remain in the competition, if it doesn't you're out like Hauritz.

    Simples, as no-one with an ounce of self-respect says anymore.

    I'll ask two questions before each day's play, you need to provide answers to both before play commences, but you will only advance if your answer to the first poser is correct. Alles klar? Sehr gut.

    Question 1: Will 100 or more runs be scored before lunch on Day 1?

    Question 2: Will 6 or more wickets fall before stumps on Day 1?


    Everyone welcome, the more the merrier, tell your mates, etc.

    "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

    That's assuming that Brisbane will start off as a greenie - if not bets are off.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
