    19th thread: Ashes LMS

    Answer two questions with yes or no every day. You get knocked out if you get a question wrong. Player who lasts the longest to be revered for the rest of time. Lather, rinse, repeat.

    1st test day 1:

    1. Will more than 80 runs be scored before lunch?
    2. Will 7 or more wickets fall before the close of play?

    All welcome to participate. Get your answers in before the start of play.

    What if all the switches get stuck on 'destroy'?

    See, you're definitely more trustworthy. Reckon post toss but before the first ball is the way to go though.

    Answer may depend on who bats first.
