    Brain of CW: Team Format

    A bit of cricket quizzical action to distract us from the lack of Test cricket on right now.

    Inspired by a low-budget affair I saw on BBC2 the other day, the purpose of Team Format is to provide a bit of game strategy and the chance to come up with some of those hil-arious team names I'm sure you're capable of.

    There'll be 4 rounds of 10 questions, with each round on a specific category, e.g. "Tests before 1939", "World T20", or "The Life and Works of Jeetan Patel". Playing in teams of four, you'll have one nominated player answer privately each round. If your team does well, you'll have more players available for the final winner-take-all round, for which conferring will be allowed.

    Details to come up when I'm asked or we need them. For now, I just need you to post your interest and start a few teams.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Interested. I'll leave the other more creative and humours folk to come up with teams names, however.

    If anyone decides on "Clueless" they don't deserve to play.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
