Just use the same order, Goose... ya fruitcake! Very Happy

How do we do points, LT?
I don't want to be stingy dealing in single points... fractions of points. Rather make it juicy so we can all rack up some decent points.

Does this seem OK?

20 points for correct win and winning margin either N, C, E or T.

10 points for correct win but only one rung off the actual result.
eg. you tip India T and the actual result is India E = 10 points

5 points for correct win but more than one rung off the winning margin.
eg. you tip England T and the actual result is England N

For a tie - nominate "NT" after your winning team
eg. Australia NT .. and it will be treated as an extra rung from N. 50 points for correct picking NT. If it's only an N... 10 points.
For a "No Result" ... 0 points allocated.

I'm meddling with the idea of a *Golden Pick* match - where you nominate winning team & correct margin with an * eg. *Aus E* v SL - so you'd get 40, 20 and 10 points ... double the usual points.

10 points for correct win but only one rung off the actual result.
eg. you tip India T and the actual result is India E = 10 points

5 points for correct win but more than one rung off the winning margin.
eg. you tip England T and the actual result is England N



Personally I would want to make the correct result as important as the margin so:

!0 for the result
10 for correct margin
5 for just one rung out

But up to you really.

Ok... let's do that.

I'll go Match 6: *England E* for golden point match for this round.

(we'll do this for each block of matches... 5 times including the semis / final block of matches)

Joey,
Sorry I'm late to the party - away a lot oy y'day and today until now. Feel free to disqualify me from Match 1 - although genuinely what I would have gone for before the start, feel Eng are a bit over hyped and, in any case, need to go against the majority to spring a surprise! Smile
Other predictions to follow later today.
Best, G

Just edited my post as I thought T was for "tight" rather than "thrashing". Have changed those to Ns. Upset I didn't trust my gut and go with an "Easy" England win, which would have brought me an extra 5 points. Think only Duty's got those, so he's into an early lead by my reckoning Very Happy

After today I'm off to a wedding, then on holiday and coming back in time for West Indies vs South Africa at the Rose Bowl. Not sure when I'll get a chance to do the next set of guesses. I'm definitely away when the second block starts, so I'll do the whole block of 10 now for ease. Long way to look forward without getting a look at everyone, but here it is.

So starting with Pakistan vs Sri Lanka and ending with Sri Lanka vs Australia:

Game 11: Pakistan C
Game 12: England E - gold
Game 13: New Zealand E
Game 14: India C
Game 15: West Indies C
Game 16: Bangladesh C
Game 17: Australia E
Game 18: India C
Game 19: England E
Game 20: Australia T

They won by 7 wickets.

So according to the table in the op: Easy, 2nd column "6-8 wickets".
Or is it a T because there were more than "31+ balls remaining"?

If the latter, then Robbo would be on 25...
and everyone on 25 (in the table above) would be on 20, GB would be on 10.

Sorry I got mixed up and thought that post referred to the scores after game one.

But surely that has to go down as a thrashing because of the balls remaining? I means theres no way you could see that as anything else ....it does throw up a problem though ...what if they won with one wicket left and 31 balls? That wouldnt be a thrashing
Nor would winning with 10 wickets on the last ball.

In that case the fine print is worse than Pakistan :p

I refer the honrouable gentleman to the above post about south Africa and reading the rules. Also if we arent allowed to book warner it's quite reasonable for any of us to ignore the rules, including the chap who's picked his scores after the first two games were played.

guys... I must admit I'm a little unsure myself. Looked like a comprehensive T to me as well.

Tiger can you help clarify?

I'll get you into to the table, KP_f... thanks for your picks. What is your golden (double points) match? Let me know before next match.

I can't give you "Eng - T" after the event (nice try!) but I'll give you "WI - T".

So you're on 15 points. You're still nicely placed with 47 matches to go. Smile

OK thanks KP_f.

Points Table after Match 4

90 Robbo
70 Goose
70 Duty
70 James
65 Alfie
60 Tiger
60 Olly
60 MfC
55 Dolphin
55 Pal Joey
45 Guildford
40 KP_fan
35 Jules

Duty collected double points (40) for picking "NZ-T" in his golden match.
Same for Robbo with his "Aus-E" correct pick golden match.
Gooseberry, Mad for Chelsea and James100 all picked up a tidy 30 points for their golden matches too.

edit: Dolphin... I need my eyes checked. Had you on 65 but just noticed on the spreadsheet you are on 55... (10+15+15+15)

So according to the table in the op: Easy, 2nd column "6-8 wickets".
Or is it a T because there were more than "31+ balls remaining"?

If the latter, then Robbo would be on 25...
and everyone on 25 (in the table above) would be on 20, GB would be on 10.

Easy because losing 3 wickets trumps the number of balls.

While I know the game was really a thrashing, the rules had not considered a team winning inside 15 overs.

Literally no-one predicted a Bangladesh victory, and London Tiger even wasted his golden ticket on South Africa. Surely no-one else was daft enough to do that? Were they?

The search for the lost valley of gold seemed like a good idea at the time. I'm sort of half shocked but not totally surprised by the result. Sorry for SA.

We all got "0" if that's any consolation, Julius. Laugh

Guess what?
I've put all my golden eggs in the England - E basket. Dolphin and Olly have theirs in England - C.

So they better win well enough... but not a thrashing, Duty and Robbo. You big T-zers!  Smile

Thanks for pointing that out. I was hoping it may slip under the radar.
