    The Future - One Days?

    First of all, I apologise for the delay in getting the recent results up - a lot of matches in a short space of time!

    With the closing of the First Series after the 33rd Round, you have a chance to have a say in what you want from a second series.

    An option would be to predict on One Day Internationals as well.

    Another option would be to have a series prediction in Test or Series in ODI's.

    Also, do people want to combine them all together or have separate score tables?

    Don't be afraid to post in here any ideas.

    Also, if the idea does expand, I'm likely to be looking for an extra pair of hands to help me run it - contact me by email or MSN if you're interested.

    I think having ODIs will be a good idea.It gets kinda boring after a while that you only have to go with Tests

    That said, I'd prefer to predict series for ODIs. Single matches tend to be 1) very unpredictable, 2) coming back-to-back, giving little time to predict it.

    Yeah I think:

    Series for ODI's
    Inidvidual Tests
    Or something.

    Glad to have some feedback - series does seem popular.

    Might try and add a couple of other categories for it - any ideas?

    Most 6's or something?

    Most maidens?

    Well, in ODIs one thing is pretty important - highest SR. Perhaps a category for that?

    No, he definitely means highest. I was under the impression that 100 runs per 100 balls was significantly better than 60...

    If we include SR's I think it must include some form of limiter to prevent a bloke scoring 2 off 1 ball winning.
