    Well, I ran the last two and I didn't make it the deadline. I don't see why it should be. Why do you have to do it the day before when you don't know who's batting, what the teams are or even the conditions?

    It's a distinct advantage to be online between the toss and the start of play.

    What Vimes said.

    End of the day, up to the people running the comps. But I prefer day one to be pre-toss and all others pre-start of play.

    I asked:

    2. Will 7 or more wickets fall before the close of play?
    And with Buttler the seventh brave hero to be cheated out by the villains today, the answer is yes

    Fallers:

    Vimes
    NUFAN
    Spikey
    Gnske
    Justo

    Questions for the four of them for day two:

    1. Will Moeen Ali get to 50+ in this innings?

    2. Will James Anderson take the first Australian wicket of the series?

    So weird, i answered as though it was 7 or LESS and even had this gut feeling that exactly 7 would fall. Oh well no banana for me.

    With the great man flaying the attack on his way to 77, it's yes.
