    World Cup Predictions League - Round 1: India vs Bangladesh

    There seemed enough interest to go for this - so here goes:

    Points system:

    80 points are on offer for each game, split 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.

    Can I ask that if you amend a prediction, you quote your original post, edited posts will not be accepted as I will be going through the thread adding predictions as they happen so am liable to miss one.

    The first game is Bangladesh vs India and the closing time for predictions is 7.30am GMT on Saturday 19th February.

    Good luck all!

    Isn't predicting Pathan to top score basically predicting the Indian top order to fail?
