    ICC Trophy Challenge!

    sorry to put this in both forums, just want to make sure all cricketweb posters get to see this, let see what you guys got!
    ====================
    with the biggest cricket tourny (besides the WC) only one week away, i thought i'd set up an AllOut!-********** ICC Champions Trophy Cricket Challenge


    Rules:
    -Pick which team you think will win, get 3 points
    -Pick the bonus questions, get 1 point for each correct one.
    -After the first round, a certain amount of players will be eliminated based on the amount of people playing. It will be announced before the comp starts.
    -make picks like so:
    Screen name (website/board)
    Pick
    Bonus answer
    -so an example for the first to games:

    the schedule will be listed as-
    sept 10
    USA-NZ
    bonus:
    will usa get over 100 runs?
    will a nz player get a century?

    Eng-ZIM
    will Zim get over 100 runs?
    will a eng player get a century?

    the picks are to be listed like so-
    AllOut! (**********)
    USA
    Yes
    No
    (skip a line)
    ENG
    Yes
    Yes

    Any questions, post here. The reason i put (website/board) is so everyone can see which site you frequent/board you post on, sort of like having your hometown posted. This contest has been posted on numerous boards so it’s a good way to keep track.. Also, we can see if a certain site has some people who have no idea how to pick winners!

    That being said all are welcome. It doesn’t matter if you have been a long time cricket fan who is a self proclaimed expert (I know there’s a lot of you out there!), or a cricket newbie. The object is to bring cricket fans from different sites together and have fun.

    I have a challenge currently going on for the AFL (aussie footy) and its going well. Its only been promoted on two sites and we have 29 people signed up, so for this I expect more, so keep in mind spots will be limited. Check out www.**********.com and scroll to the bottom to see the set-up, and check out this link to see how the rules are-
    http://www.********.com/forum/showthread.php?t=129952

    Schedule and bonus questions to come soon, so post here if you are interested, no picks yet until the full schedule and bonus questions are listed!

    comments:
    -3 games, and Nnanden controls first all alone. Nnanden is the only one to have a perfect score too.
    -Bonus point if you can pronounce the first place person's name (just kidding).

    -Cricketweb is the best..... and the worst. Cricketweb.net players have first and last place.

    -no worries though b/c the middle of the pack (places one through 8) are separated by one game only
