    Predictions League

    Fellow members, now is the chance to prove you can predict Test Cricket better than anyone else on this forum!

    If this initial round is a success, for each Test Match I will make a list of things to predict, and points will be awarded based on getting things right as folllows:

    Toss: 2 points
    Result: 10 points (if Tied, it counts as a draw)
    Batsman scoring most runs in Match: 10 points
    Bowler with best Match Figures: 10 points
    Total runs in Match: Spot on 15 points, within 10 runs 10 points, with 25 runs 7 points, within 50 runs 5 points, within 100 runs 2 points.
    Total wickets to fall in Match: Spot on 10 points, within 1 wicket 7 points, within 2 wickets 5 points, within 3 wickets 2 points.

    The first match is Bangladesh vs. England - predictions need to be in before the game starts, and if you wish to change then please post a new post.

    I'll go first:
    Toss: Bangladesh
    Result: England win
    Batsman: Thorpe
    Bowler: Rafique
    Runs: 700
    Wickets: 28

    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.

    How could he not? With our selectors anyway...

    Can someone explain to me why Clarke keeps getting picked? I suspect he will get into the Test XI purely on potential, having not done anything this tour.

    Toss: England
    Result: England
    Batsman: Thorpe
    Bowler: Hoggard
    Runs: 751
    Wickets: 30

    When it's based on one match It can!

    The plan is to cover all Test matches if this is a success - but we need a few days free before each game to allow people the chance to post!

    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Lol. I knew that.

    I did the report for Cricket Web. That was a blonde moment (although I'm not blonde).

    Edited.
