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!

As we are picking results match to match , I'd welcome clarification on the rule regarding result selection / overall prediction ...though no rush for that.


Alfie, we could have just done the winner for each Test... in which case you could make your predictions as the series went along... maybe adjusting what you thought might be the overall result at the start... to something completely different by (or towards) the end of the series.

What I'm asking for 'locks us in' to our preconceived gut feeling to predict the overall series result - before a ball is bowled. Much harder I know.

So if you predicted England 3-1, for example, and England to win the 1st Test... and they do... then good. That's one England win out of the way.
Then you have to determine where to use the rest of your predictions (2 x England or 1 x Australia... and a draw somewhere) in line with your overall 3-1 prediction.

Just say for the above England 3-1 prediction, Australia win the 1st Test... (and you picked England) your job is a little easier. Your Australian 'win' has already eventuated (so it would be silly to pick them again... as that would tend to England 3-2 minimum and you predicted 3-1. So all you'd really have left is the 3 England wins (even though you used one England win up and it failed)... up to you which one is a draw.

You can predict England 4 times in that England 3-1 scenario - Eng (lost) Eng (won) Draw, Eng (won), Eng (won) ... an overall England 3-1 result.
However someone who correctly picked Aus/Eng/Draw/Eng/Eng would have picked up 75 points for each Test (375 points + bonus) compared to your 300 points only... for the 4 correct picks.

Does that make sense or is there something massive I've overlooked?  Smile

Yeah I think it does. So if England win the first three I have to go Aus and draw for the last two ; but if this is drawn and Aus win at Lord's as usual (even though I've picked England for each ?) I can then keep picking the home team for the last three...in other words we can pick anything game by game , as long as it wouldn't immediately invalidate our overall prediction ? Cool.

That's right, Guildford. We can't change midway through the match... it would be a nightmare* to manage the scoring. Any news on him today?

edit: * Well maybe not a "nightmare" since he only has 3 runs. I think I could work around that. Smile

Cheers for that confirmation, Joey.

I haven't heard any news about Anderson today. Seems as it is being kept under wraps by England which is fair enough - why let on to your opponents what is happening. That said, he was clearly uncomfortable when running in his little knock yesterday - my own non-medical view is that I would be surprised to see him again in this test or the next. Beyond that, no idea at this stage.

I'm having these nightmares, Guildford.

I somehow believe that you have Lyon... and my hours at the top are numbered. I feel quite relieved when I wake up and take another look at it.

It could all change in a matter of hours... depending on how it unfolds today. So maybe these 'nightmares' are actually accurate premonitions? Very Happy

So disappointed to predict an English win. However Lyon is doing fabulous job. Excepting a 7-fer from him today.

Apologies for going off topic here but why is Starc's place in doubt? He would be nailed on for me. My bowling reserves in order for second Test - Siddle and Hazlewood.

You can go with whoever you like, compelling. Replace all 4 batsmen and bowlers if you like. The only thing that remains fixed is the overall prediction.

Thanks everyone.  OK

Just waiting for Superfly and JD.

Is the weather really that bad... my app says not less than 60% (mainly 70,80,90%) chance of rain all day?
Friday and Saturday not much better I see. Element of danger for both teams whenever (or if-ever!) Smile they go into bat?

KP_Fan - so you consider Cummins as a batting all-rounder type of role? Is above correct? Hedging with bowlers, huh? Wink

The only missing point in my case is if Curran plays then he is my selection instead of Leach.

Sorry compelling, I can't do that. Everyone was locked in well before the scheduled toss. We were all in the same boat. It was frustrating I know.
I also don't want to set a precedent whereby everyone wants to tweak their selections when weather delays occur just prior to commencement.
I hope you understand.
