    CW I need your help

    The title says it all. So basically, I am in a WC pool on SuperBru with 14 others I know (friends and family). And my pride is on the line. So far in the first 4 matches, I've overestimated the minnows and did not expect them to lose by such large margins. Of course, the contest is still very close since the outcome of these first few matches have been predictable. However, I have not been able to stack up any bonus points with respect to the margin of victory.

    Anyway, so now I need advice from you CWers. And I'm putting along with mine, your pride as well on the line. Let's win this. The following is the margin of victory scoring system.

    For run victories
    Within 10 runs: 0.7 pts
    Within 11 - 20 runs: 0.5 pts
    Within 21 - 30 runs: 0.3 pts

    For wicket victories
    Exact: 0.7 pts
    Within 1 wicket: 0.5 pts
    Within 2 wickets: 0.3 pts

    Let's start with the next few matches. Note, a prediction needs to be made for both runs and wickets.

    1) England vs Netherlands
    2) Kenya vs Pakistan
    3) South Africa vs West Indies

    And please, no Benchy-type responses

    Thanks Blaze

    What I'll do is, I'll average out the predictions and go with that.

    Oh ****ing hell

    The one time that I didn't overestimate the minnow, and chose an 8 wicket win instead of the regular 6-7 wicket win that I had been sticking to prior to this game, and things go the other way. This is ridiculous.

    Anyway, thanks to everyone that responded with their predictions, I appreciate it.

    For tomorrow's game, I went with Pakistan by 124 runs or 8 wickets.

    Really hoping I'm right, I need these points.
