    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.
    "Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."

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