    Predictions league?

    Old timers among you may remember the Predictions League I used to run.

    I am consider resurrecting it for the World Cup if there's enough interest. Would probably use the exact same rules as previously used as they seemed to work to me, but would be open to suggestions for amendments to it.

    For reference, this is what the rules used to be:

    A total of 80 points made up as follows:
    Toss - 1 point
    Match result - 10 points (a tie will count as a draw)
    Batsman scoring at the highest strike rate in the match - 10 points
    Strike rate of the quickest scoring batsman - spot on - 12 points; within 5 - 8 points; within 10 - 4 points; within 15 runs - 2 points
    Most economical bowler - 10 points
    Economy rate of the most economical bowler - spot on - 12 points; within 0.1 - 8 points; within 0.3 - 4 points; within 0.5 - 2 points
    Total runs in the match - spot on - 15 points; within 10 runs - 10 points; within 25 runs - 7 points; within 50 runs - 5 points; within 100 runs - 2 points
    Total wickets in the match - spot on - 10 points; within 1 wicket - 7 points; within 2 wickets - 5 points; within 3 wickets - 2 points

    For quickest scoring batsman, the batsman must have scored at least 10% of his team's runs.
    For strike rate, please submit a round number to represent runs scored per 100 balls.
    For most economical bowler, the bowler must have bowled at least 10% of his team's overs.
    For economy rate, please submit a number to 1 dp representing runs per over.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    In. I cannot resist these games.
    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.

    "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."
