    Player Prediction Game

    There are three test series coming up

    SA Vs England
    NZ Vs SL
    Aus Vs West Indies

    So not a draft. Basically Pick a player from a choice of 3 relatively evenly matched guys. Well three guys who Howe and myself went to the effort of trying to make even.
    Point scorng 1 point per run. 25 points per wicket. SL and Kiwis worth 1.5 times their points due to shortened series. English and SA only the first 3 tests will count.
    Players from "away" teams receive a 40 point bonus.

    When you make your selections please list as follows
    1 - Last name
    2 - Last name
    3 - Last name
    ....
    11 - Last name

    That will help me cut and paste into excel - anything not in that format will be a spolied ballot.

    You have until December 9th midnight New Zealand time to enter if for some reason one of your picks does not get selected then you will not be the only person impacted. To help everyone in your shoes I will put in a replacement person from one of the other teams. E.g. Mitchell Marsh will come in as the next all rounder and you will end up with him.

    Here are the groups - again thanks to Howe for his assistance:

    Opener 1

    Dave Warner
    Alastair Cook
    Tom Latham

    Opener 2

    Joe Burns
    Kraigg Brathwaite
    Dean Elgar

    Top Order 3

    Hasim Amla
    Kane Williamson
    Steve Smith


    Middle Order 1
    Joe Root
    Ross Taylor
    AB De Villiers

    Middle order 2

    Angelo Mathews
    Faf Du Plessis
    Brendon McCullum

    batting allrounder

    Ben Stokes
    Mitchell Santner
    JP Duminy

    Keeper-batsman

    Peter Nevill
    BJ Watling
    Dinesh Ramdin

    3rd Seamer

    Chameera
    Gabriel
    Chris Jordan or Woakes if selected ahead.

    Spinner
    Rangana Herath
    Nathan Lyon
    Dane Peidt

    Seamer 1

    Stuart Broad
    Josh Hazlewood
    Tim Southee

    Seamer 2

    James Anderson
    Trent Boult
    Morne Morkel

    Good Luck!!!


    If team news comes up in the next few days that one of these players is out please advise and I will make a change.

    If someone gets injured or dropped mid series no accommodations will be made.

    A. I should win by default: mine's the only ballot that's not spoiled.

    B. VERY unhappy that I couldn't choose Holder anywhere. (If he can be subbed in for Jordan, please do so; if for someone else, let me know and I'll decide.

    Hi Ike,

    I am tempted to put Holder into the all rounders group even though he isn't a batting all rounder. However a number of people have picked already who might have taken him had he been an option. I should have thought of more West Indian options when putting this together.
