    Prediction league - including minnows?

    The recent plethora of ODIs involving the minnow nations has lead me to question if these should be included in the predictions league.

    Please note I am only talking about games between 2 non-Test nations.

    I think so; it'll encourage me to take more of an interest so I guess it'll be the same for others.

    Yes, because it gives me a fair chance of catching up

    Yes, as BoyBrumby said it will create an interest in me to follow up on the minnows..

    I think it would give everyone an opportunity to follow the minnows more so than usual.

    Definitely.

    The predicting between the Zim and Bang series that just occurred would have made for some interesting results. Plus the interest factor is another good reason.

    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 *********!

    Looks fairly conclusive then!

    Minnow games will be included.

    First match will be the start of the England-Pakistan ODI series (30th August) so keep your eyes peeled.

    Any game that doesn't start will be a nil point.
