    Pub Quiz - The Teams

    As it's an Ashes series, funnily enough the two teams will be Australia and England.

    Absolutely everyone on the board is welcome to play in any of the events - there will be team and individual scoreboards for the entire series - for those of you who are neutral, just let me know who you want to play for in the Pub Quiz.

    So my result will influence the performance of a whole group of people? What if I can't deal with the pressure?

    Worth putting it out there as a code of honour, nonetheless.

    Yeah, I statsguru'd a question before reading the next post. Didn't submit the answer I was going to use and had misread the question anyway.

    Ashes Pub Quiz - Team Challenge


    This event is a team event, and will consist of 5 different trivia questions across the 5 days of the Test. 1 point is available for winning each day's challenge.

    How it works

    Example question: Name a player who played in the 2010 Brisbane Test

    Each team has to name as many of the 22 players that played at Brisbane last time out. The catch here is that each player in the team must email me a maximum of 5 players for their answer, and it is the team's combined answerd which count.

    So let's say Howe and GIMH email me. Howe names Anderson, Broad, Finn, Cook and Trott, while GIMH names Anderson, Cook, Strauss, Trott and Bell. Between them, they have named 7, so England's score will be 7. Burgey amd andyc email me from the Australian side, and between them name 8 players. Australia would win the challenge and the point for day 1.

    While I can't exactly police this, I would ask that there is no googling and no conferring.
