    Last Man Standing: England vs India

    A 2011 twist on Brumby's classic game.

    For those unfamiliar or forgetful, the idea is:

    I'll ask a pair of questions every evening, related to the following day's play. All are to be answered as "yes" or "no". A correct answer keeps you in the game (as soon as what that is becomes evident from the match), and similarly an incorrect answer has you out. If your first answer is wrong, you're out regardless of your second answer.

    The round continues until only one man/woman/spambot is left standing. After which, we start a new round.

    First up:

    Question 1: Will two or more wickets be taken before lunch on Day 1?

    Question 2: Will 320 or more runs be scored on Day 1?


    All members and their various acquaintances/family members/pets are free to join in. Answers must be submitted before the toss (or the start of play during the match).

    Have fun, boys & girls.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Hypothetically speaking Jake, if one was to get banned inter-game, would that person be able to submit remaining answers via email/SMS?

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.
