    Including or not including minnows?

    We're on.

    Disregarding the minnow scores, I believe Ponting will overtake Sachin. SJS and Jono think otherwise.

    - Alastair Cook will average more then Graeme Smith in test cricket ---- likely to lose
    - Yuvraj will average 40 in both forms of the game ----- likely to lose

    Thats an amazingly high number of negatives in my opinion. Who bet on what ??
    Chris Martin did make a Test match 10.

    His heroic maiden ten
    Code:
    85.5  	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, no run, outside off and left alone
    85.6 	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, no run, Shahadat gets one to jag back in, hits Martin on the pads and a big appeal ensues, the ball was missing leg by more than a few inches
    
    New Zealand 340/9   CS Martin 0* (2b)
    86.3 	Mashrafe Mortaza to Martin, no run, lands on middle and holds its line, Martin just manages to get some wood on it and block
    86.4 	Mashrafe Mortaza to Martin, no run, tests him out with a bouncer, Martin ducks under it, just...
    86.5 	Mashrafe Mortaza to Martin, no run, aims for the yorker this time, lands around the off stump and Martin blocks it out
    86.6 	Mashrafe Mortaza to Martin, 1 run, full and a little wide outside off, Martin drives and connects well enough to third man to pick up a single, there was nothing wrong with that stroke
    
    New Zealand 342/9   CS Martin 1* (6b)
    87.1 	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, no run, short outside off, fizzes past him through to the keeper
    87.2 	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, no run, full on middle and leg and driven with force back to the bowler, he's aiming for the yorker
    87.3 	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, 1 no ball, digs it in short this time and it's an overstep as well, Martin just ducks under it
    87.3 	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, no run, tempts him with a full and wide delivery outside off and Martin chases it, lucky not to get an edge
    87.4 	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, no run, adjusts the line closer to the off stump, gets it to curve in, Martin backs away from the stroke and lets it go
    87.5 	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, FOUR, not bad at all.....overpitched outside off, Martin leans forward into the drive, manages to beat mid-off, cover does the chasing and fails to pull the ball back before the boundary
    87.6 	Shahadat Hossain to Martin, FOUR, and the agony continues for Shahadat as Martin steals a cheeky boundary off an inside edge that sneaks over the stumps and past the keeper down to fine leg
    
    New Zealand 351/9   CS Martin 9* (13b 2x4)
    88.6 	Mashrafe Mortaza to Martin, no run, hits the deck hard, aims for the middle stump but Martin covers the line and blocks it out safely
    
    New Zealand 352/9   CS Martin 9* (14b 2x4)
    89.2 	Sajidul Islam to Martin, no run, wasted delivery... Islam fails to control the swing and slips that wide outside off
    89.3 	Sajidul Islam to Martin, 1 run, aims for the yorker on off stump, Martin gets some wood behind it and works it wide of point, what's more, he's into double figures. Martin wished for that this morning on television

    Reckon Bangladesh are more embarrassed about that than Gillespie's double century?

    Why should you disregard Minnow scores ? I am not saying it for any reason except that India playes Bangladesh more often than Australia does which means that an Indian player will have more Tests disregarded.

    And the whole idea of disregarding minnows for the purpose of aggregate runs scored is not exactly right. I can understand for averages.

    Cook is only about 23 or 24, I would imagine Smith will finish with a higher average but it's not exactly fact just yet

    Cook is young but he's shown absolutely no signs of improvement since his selection and he's not really in the same talent category as Graeme Smith anyway.

    The bets are from my perspective so basically you think I will lose most of them even though it's currently 1-1.

    If Bailey doesn't play Test Cricket the bet does not count, Steyn you never know, Dhoni vs Haddin is also very close.

    Vuvraj will get to 40 in Tests, he might just struggle in ODIs though, hopefully the lowest he bats is 4 for the rest of his career.
