    The predictions thread

    Make a cricketing prediction for a match or a series. The prediction must be made before the match starts. 3 points for getting a test match right, 1 for a one dayer. People get negative 3 and one for getting a wrong prediction as well.

    At the end each month, the person with most points wins the prediction thingy.

    Ah yes, no predictions for matches involving Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will be taken in and only international cricket. Prediction must be made 'before' the match or series starts.

    Cheers.

    Since there is only one international match coming up in what remains of this month, the prediction competition for the month will be a bit different.

    Points would be awarded as follows :-

    Result of the match - 3 points
    Player to take most wickets in the match - 2 points
    Player to make most runs in the match - 2 points
    Player to take most catches in the match - 1 point
    Number of centuries in the match - 1 point
    Number of 5 wicket halls in the match - 1 point

    That is a total of ten points for the match. The highest scorer will be the prediction league champion for the month of April 2005.

    Predictions should come before the test match starts on the 21st.

    So the comp starts with the 4th or 3rd Test between WI and SA???

    Also i don't seen the point in No of 100s and 5wh, i would increase the points for most catches and the result.

    Test:
    Result - 4
    Runs - 2
    Wkts - 2
    Cts - 2

    ODI:
    Result - 2
    Runs - 1
    Wkts - 1
    Cts - 1

    Just a suggestion what do u think??

    I brought in more parameters as there is only one game and for a clear winner it would be more probable if there are more parameters to decide a winner based on a single game.

    I love you... but it's a love that can not be. I'll just support your stance then.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    OK, so I probably won't win. I hope, at least, that the West Indies do.
