And so we finish, rather fitting that the overall winner won the last round to end up top of everything.

Thanks to all who took part, especially to the 4 people who entered all 49 rounds.

Am interested to see if people want to keep this going again after the World Cup - a show of interest in here would be good to gauge.

Thanks Nufan! It was quite close in the end, hardly anything to choose between the top five.

Marc - thanks a lot for the time and effort put into this. It was brilliant. :)

Happy to break the 1000 point barrier. Gutted I missed one match though, not that it would've made much difference.
Cheers Marc and I'm very keen should you choose to continue.

I do think continuing is the way forward, but I need a bit of a break from it, so intend skipping the Bangladesh Australia series whilst sorting out things with James about it.

I also will not do T20s as there's too many random variables involved so all things being equal we will start again with WI vs Pakistan on 23rd April.
