    The rules and points system:

    Rules:

    Either Steds or myself will start threads, with an aim of being open for 4-5 days before games, but please bear in mind that in periods with a lot of games, we may not be able to keep up!
    Predictions will only be accepted in the appropriate threads.
    If you wish to change a prediction, please do so by making a new post (and making reference to it over-riding the previous entry) - any edited post will not be accepted.
    There will be a deadline for entries - in the main we will aim to close the thread when this is reached, but there will be occasions when we are not able to. In that case, any entry after the deadline will not be accepted.
    Any other queries, feel free to post in here and we will answer them for you.
    We reserve the right to adopt rules as we see fit for anything not covered above.

    Points system:

    80 points are on offer for each Test or ODI, split as follows:

    Test.
    Toss - 1 point

    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 *********!

    As Steds said.

    I'm going to open that thread now, to allow people to make predictions and we can ensure that they're correct.

    For now we're not including them - may look into having a separate comp if they become more frequent.
