First topic message reminder :

71st Ashes Tipping Competition Rules:

1.
Pick 2 (two) batsmen and 2 (two) bowlers from both England and Australia who you think will score the most runs and take the most wickets.
You get both batting and bowling points per innings so a bowler who scores runs has both batting and bowling scores added together.
e.g.
Warner, Smith, Starc, Cummins
Roy, Root, Broad, Woakes


2.
Pick 1 (one) fielder from each team; excluding wicket keepers for most catches in the Series.
It can be a bowler (for c&b) if you want.
e.g.
Stokes, Bancroft


3.
Select the total number of catches, stumpings and run outs combined by each wicket keeper for each Test.
If a wicket keeper is injured then the replacement keeper's figures shall be used.
e.g.
Australia 9, England 9. Total dismissals 18


4.
Predict the Toss:
a) Who wins the toss?
e.g. Australia

b) Winning captain's decision - bat or field?
e.g. Bat

5.
a) Predict the 1st Ashes Test result.
e.g. England

b) Predict the overall Ashes Series result.
e.g. England 3 Australia 2

Selections must be posted a minimum one (1) hour before the commencement of each Test. No PM reminders shall be sent.


Scoring:

1.
1 point for every run scored by your nominated batsmen. Add together for each Test.
Bonus 20 points for 100 runs.
extra 25 points for 150 runs.
extra 40 points for 200 runs.
extra 50 points for 250 runs.
extra 60 bonus points for 300+ runs.

Note: the batting & bowling score bonuses accumulate so;

Batting:
100 runs = 120 points. A player scores 127 + 20 = 147 points.
150 runs = 195 points. A player scores 176 + 20 + 25 = 221 points.
200 runs = 285 points. A player scores 243 + 20 + 25 + 40 = 328 points.
250 runs = 385 points. A player scores 282 + 20 + 25 + 40 + 50 = 417 points
300+ runs = 445 points. A player scores 309 + 20 + 25 + 40 + 50 + 60 = 504 points.

Bowling:
20 points per wicket with a bonus 50 points for a 5-fer.
An extra 35 points for 6-fer, 40 for 7-fer, 45 for 8-fer, 50 for 9-fer.
An extra 100 bonus points for a 10-fer.

5 wickets = 100 + 50 = 150 points
6 wickets = 120 + 50 + 35 = 205 points.
7 wickets = 140 + 50 + 35 + 40 = 265 points
8 wickets = 160 + 50 + 35 + 40 + 45 = 330 points
9 wickets = 180 + 50 + 35 + 40 + 45 + 50 = 400 points
10 wickets = 200 + 50 + 35 + 40 + 45 + 50 + 100 = 520 points

Caught and bowled = 20 points for the wicket + 30 bonus points for the catch = 50 points.

2.
Fielder catches: Your nominated fieldsman earns you 25 points per catch and 25 points for a run out.

3.
Wicket keepers: I’ll rank your predictions from the actual scores after each Test. Whoever guesses closest to the actual result receives 100 points, then descending down 5 points, so 95 points for the next closest guess, 90 points for the next, etc. If you chose the same scores as another member… then you'll both receive the same points. Next closest then receives 85, 80, 75, 70... depending on how many of us there are.

4.
a) Correctly predict who wins the toss = 15 points
b) Correctly predict what the winning Captain decides to do = 15 points - only for those with part a) above correct; no points if your a) was incorrect.

5.
a) Correctly predict the winning team for each Test = 75 points. Your selection for each Test must correlate with your overall margin in part b) below.
b) If you guess all 5 Ashes Test outcomes correctly then there is a further 125 point bonus = 375 + 125 = 500 points.
Note: Correctly predict a "Draw" = 75 points

If a selected player gets injured or is dropped from the Test side, then you’ll have the opportunity to select a replacement player – before the next Test commences. This player doesn’t have to be the actual substitute player – it can be somebody already in the team. However, you don’t receive any of their previous points – you must start accumulating points from scratch with them.

*****

Good Luck!

Is that right?

Yeah everything is fine, however you have swapped the wicket keeper dismissal. It is Aus 7 and Eng 6..

Ok, so Starc in place of Cummins.

It is with deep regret that I announce the sad news of Olly failing to get his act together before this Test began.  Crying or Very sad

However, when I copied the old spread sheet... changed the players/order...(and fixed Kumar's errors)... I noticed he had the following team:

Root/Stokes/Archer/Leach* - Labusch'/Smith/Cummins/Starc - Root and Warner catching. Aus win... or England again? Whistle

127 points... not a bad day's work.

If it's OK with you Olly... and the rest of us... I can reinstate you if you want to get back into the swing of things.
You would now have 3027 points if we go with the above.

I know you are still in mourning over the axing of Sir Chris but this competition is less fun without you. Are you in? Cool

* or do you want Broad? (3067 [167] points yesterday but still behind JD)

Day 1, I was second topper from bottom. I hope to change the fortune on Day 2 with most of my selection scored runs.

I am pretty hopeful with Day 3, as England is going to lose the test by innings, I think.

Like this actual test series, the bowlers I chose came off yesterday taking 12 of the 13 wickets to fall. My choices of Warner and Root for the batting was not so succeessful! Wink

Yes Guildford, it's funny how the scoreboard actually mirrors the day's play.  Smile  You had a very good day along with Kumar and Compelling.

I reinstated Root which has sort of paid off... but why oh why did I drop Cummins?
Huge mistake to make for this critical match in the series. Lyon hasn't looked right these last few tests. So I brought him in for Cummins! steam

I had a funny going in this particular test. I was 2nd lowest scorer on Day 1, then came to to top on Day 2. My hopes lasted few hours as I again slipped to lowest scorer on Day 3, but fortune shone on Day 4 and I again become top scorer. This test is really a see-saw for me. I hope Day 5 does not fall like the pattern.

Pal I think I will overtake you in the next test. Very Happy

I can't answer that for you, Joey. I always stick with Cummins and Starc (when the Aussie selectors allow!) for your competitions - they usually put some jam on my bread! Smile

Well done Pal.
You increased the gap by 100 more points from the previous point.I need to work on my team selection in the English side. It's completely worthless to select any of their batsmen. Again I predicted england victory in all the matches, but they did not lived up to the expectations.

However we have one more test to go and 211 points isn't too big. Hahahahha

Same here.
I'm living in the past in many respects... expecting to see many caught behind dismissals. There were only 5 at OT.
I haven't a clue about English conditions really. It seems as though the conditions have changed or more chances are going through to the slips for some matches but not others. Or maybe it's more about the angle of the bowling to certain batsmen... coming around the wicket more?

Maybe just go with what you think, mate. I probably stuffed up with trying to lock people into stating their overall prediction right at the start - which doesn't take into account what actually happens as the series progresses. So you can go for whatever you feel like.

Alfie, if you get to read this - I'm assuming you're going for England win the toss and bat, England win, same wicket keeping catches as the last Test?

Thanks James.

I heard there was talk of resting Cummins but I'm not 100% sure if that will happen. We have been pretty well kept in the dark regarding Australia's team selection for each Test. Think I'm going to have to wait until the last possible moment tomorrow. I want to reinstate Cummins but if he's not playing... then, well... I'll need to decide tomorrow.

I heard there was talk of resting Cummins but I'm not 100% sure if that will happen. We have been pretty well kept in the dark regarding Australia's team selection for each Test. Think I'm going to have to wait until the last possible moment tomorrow. I want to reinstate Cummins but if he's not playing... then, well... I'll need to decide tomorrow.

In which case, can I have Pattinson on standby for if Cummins doesnt play... and Starc for if Pattinson doesn't play either

Same here.
I'm living in the past in many respects... expecting to see many caught behind dismissals. There were only 5 at OT.
I haven't a clue about English conditions really. It seems as though the conditions have changed or more chances are going through to the slips for some matches but not others. Or maybe it's more about the angle of the bowling to certain batsmen... coming around the wicket more?

Maybe just go with what you think, mate. I probably stuffed up with trying to lock people into stating their overall prediction right at the start - which doesn't take into account what actually happens as the series progresses. So you can go for whatever you feel like.

Alfie, if you get to read this - I'm assuming you're going for England win the toss and bat, England win, same wicket keeping catches as the last Test?

haven't got the stats but feel like lbw and bowled (certainly with a couple of ours at least) has been the more common dismissal. when it has been a caught behind a lot of the time its been 1st or 2nd slip

You're throwing the dice there, Soul. An Oval track and good weather forecast despite heading towards mid September. Good luck anyway - if you're right, you should clear up here!

That was indeed my intention. When I saw England batting today I assumed I had got a toss right at last...ha !

Yeah, you smashed it yesterday. No one above you has him either... Guildford is the main threat if Warner finds some form.
