    I'm in...

    Would like to say something though, I think it would be a nice if people can explain their predictions.

    For example what the team winning the toss is likely to do, why you back a certain bowler or batsman over others in for a particular game, I think it would allow some decent discussion.

    Although in theory this is a good idea, there is a full forum to discuss the games, and it would make it a real nightmare for me to keep track of everything if the threads had discussions in!

    Might as well keep the discussions to this thread.

    As for why I did what I did, I did what I did because I wanted to do what I wanted to do.

    M'afraid I will be withdrawing from the game Marc. Playing too many, and I've made a rubbish start anyway.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    What's the current overall table?
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - 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."

    Equal 3rd? That can't be right.

    Whole tournament - it's great to see continued support after the first game, seems even more than last time it ran.
