    Return of an old favourite?

    With the forum having a lot more members than it did a year or so back (and me having a bit more time on my hands now my exams are out of the way) I'm considering bringing back the Predictions League.

    Test matches would definitely be done, but I'm not sure whether to bring back ODIs and if so whether to have 1 combined game or 2 separate ones.

    What would the interest in it be? I've set up a poll to gauge responses.

    For those that weren't around, it basically involved predicting toss winner, outcome of the game, total runs and wickets as well as best batsman and bowler.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    ALFTA took an extreme length of time to run with only a few people benefitting and even fewer people actually involved.

    This won't take so long (although if ODIs come in I may look for some help) and will involve a lot more people.

    Sounds good, I’m rather excellent at predicating cricket matches.

    For instance Sri Lanka vs. South Africa, “The series will not be as one sided as many people feel”. Subsequently South Africa lose by an innings and hundred odd runs, and two Sri Lanka batsman nearly break every batting record under the sun.

    I would go for it. It seems like a good idea - more details for those who havent heard of it before, will there be points, scoring etc

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!
