    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Pretty ridiculous giving him those two points as it is. Yea, most disappointing team is England when they finish 5th out of the big 8 and saying New Zealand are winners when they were predictably completely outclassed in the semis.

    Then when there's a ton of bowlers and batsmen to choose from you pick 3 to award points for.

    Fortunately CDMs boy is far enough ahead that it doesn't matter really.

    Three posters posted their predictions one after the other. The problem appears to be that the second and third of these two cut and pasted from the post of the first and just changed the answers with their own. But they made a big mistake.

    The first of these three posters, namely Jungle Jumbo had missed two questions all together. With the result he attempted only ten out of twelve.

    The posters who followed him missed exactly the same two questions (I think because they cut and pasted from Jungle Jumbo) and at least one of them missed a golden opportunity to overtake Boy Brumby at the top of the leader board. Here are his scores.

    DCC_Legend
    Winners…………………. AUS ....5
    Worst of "Big 8"………… PAK ....5

    Disappointing Player…… Rana Naved ....0
    Surprise Package………. Ireland ....5

    sy88 who followed DCC_Legend did reasonably well inspite of missing the same two questions altogether.

    But what of Jungle Jumbo, who inadvertantly led these two gentlemen astray. Well he seemed to have done not so badly himself.
