First topic message reminder :

2021 India v England Tipping Competition Rules:

1.
Pick 2 (two) batsmen and 2 (two) bowlers from both India and England whom 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.
Kohli, Pujara, Ashwin, Bumrah
Burns, Root, Broad, Bess


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.
Gill, Stokes

3.
Select which wicket keeper will take the greatest number of catches, stumpings and run outs combined for each Test.
If a wicket keeper is injured then the replacement keeper's figures shall be used.
e.g.
Pant or Buttler... or "the same" amount of dismissals.

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

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

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

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 + 25 bonus points for the catch = 45 points.

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

3.
Wicket keepers: 50 points for correct selection. e,g. - Pant or Buttler.
Or if you think they will take the same number of total dismissals per innings - then nominate "the same" = 50 points.
If they take the same number of catches and stumpings (combined) and you've picked either one of the keepers - then 25 points only.

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.
b) If you guess all 4 Test Match outcomes correctly then there is a further 125 point bonus = 300 + 125 = 425 points.
Note: Correctly predict a "Draw" = 75 points

If one (or more) of your selected players gets injured during a match or is dropped from the Test side after a match, then you’ll have the opportunity to select replacement players – either as it happens - for the injured player or before the next Test commences (for a player who gets dropped). Doesn’t have to be the actual substitute player – it can be somebody else already in the team. However, you don’t receive any of their previous points – you must start accumulating points from scratch with them.

*****

February 05-09: 1st Test at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. England won by 227 runs. (0-1)

February 13-17: 2nd Test at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai. India won by 317 runs. (1-1)

February 24-28: 3rd Test at Sardar Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad. India won by 10 wickets. (2-1)

March 04-08: 4th Test at Sardar Patel Stadium, Ahmedabad. India won by an innings and 25 runs. (3-1)

*****

Good Luck!

Rohit, Pujara, Ashwin, Bumrah
Root, Pope, Leach, Anderson

Kohli and Stokes

Foakes more dismissals

India win toss and bat

England win

Thanks everyone for getting your selections in. Nice work! Smile

India to win toss and bat with England win is either bold or hedging bets there PJ!

Bold maybe.  I have a feeling not everything will go to plan... or hoping there will be some twist in the plot none of us are (yet) aware of. Wink

Fair point, Guildford.
However, you've still got Leach and Archer who might possibly do some damage.
Ashwin and Axar might play little cameos as well... you never know! Smile

Wow! The closest I'll ever get to Jim Laker - with 19 of the 20 wickets so far!Very Happy Would have been even better though had Leach got today's fivefer rather than Root. Guessing everyone has Root.

Just did the Biscuit Break update, Goose.

Yes, we all have Root, so we all scored between 177 and 187 points for that session... except for a couple of outliers who made 132 and 144.

The order hasn't changed since last night, however Alfie has now narrowed the gap to KP_f to 56 points... so a gain of 6 points.

Shocked Root's fivefer brings in 150 points plus 40 for Leach's 2 wickets, no?

Yes, that's correct, Guildford. Have added the extra 30 points on for all of us. In my haste I had added only 20 on top of the 5-fer. Fixed now.

Alfie and you are raking up the points with Axar. Smile

Everyone has Root.
All but 3 (Duty, JD and Dolphin) have Leach.

Its Patel that will have made the difference. I got as badly goosed as England by falling for the pink ball hype and going with a seamer for both sides.

Guildford and Alfie,

As you can imagine with 3 x 5-fers in the match (thus far) things have been moving very quickly indeed.

Yesterday I credited you both with only a 45-point bonus for Axar's 6-fer - it should have been 85 points according to the scoring system. I had confused it with the batting bonuses... 20+25=45 points.

Therefore, an extra 40 points has been added onto your scores. Of course you both also received the 50 point bonus for Axar's 2nd 5-fer... as well as the 50 point bonus for Root's magic 5-fer spell (which all of us also received).

Hope that clears things up and you're happy with the extra little windfall.  Smile

Hi goose - at risk of coming over all KP-f, I did suspect that India would try to reduce the impact of swing by producing a spinner's track. I even had Bess originally as my second bowler alongside Leach. As you noted on the main thread, Jeetan Patel was of a different view. thumbsup

Yeah I'd heard the rumours and India picking 3 spinners the signs were there. As with England I just fell for the data.

Nailed it. At least India didn’t pick Umesh, or I would have had two seamers!

Axar doing well for me I see...won't help much though unless England bowl India out for 45.

I thought that was very generous of you, KP_fan... tempting a possible takeover from Alfie on the leaderboard like that!
Still, you scored very well in this test and must be very happy with the win for India.

My gamble of picking four seamers may have also been somewhat wide of the mark. Whistle

So please excuse me when I post up the daily results a little later than usual.
I'll do it first thing in the morning here... which would be early night time in the UK.

* * * * *

Rohit, Pujara, Ashwin, Bumrah
Root, Pope, Leach, Anderson

Kohli and Stokes

Foakes more dismissals

India win toss and bat

England win

* * * * *

Thanks everyone for getting your selections in. Nice work! Smile
India to win toss and bat with England win is either bold or hedging bets there PJ!

Bold maybe.  I have a feeling not everything will go to plan... or hoping there will be some twist in the plot none of us are (yet) aware of. Wink

Didn't pay off...

Well done PJ in getting all this done so fast thumbsup

I am amazed to be so close to KP_fan after picking the wrong toss , wrong winner , and wrong WK...heavily indebted to Axar I guess ! Actually I think I would be leading now if Kohli hadn't been charitable enough to give Sundar that token bowl at the rabbits to pick up a wicket...perhaps KP_fan sent him a text ?

That last ball Anderson ct. Pant b Sundar was worth 70 points
Shocked
I have a view that Sundar could have been almost as potent as Axar...as he too bowls fast ~100kph...with toppinners, skidders mixed with conventional off spin
Pity he didn't get to bowl

Thanks Alfie.
Yes, considering all of the above you were only one wicket or a caught behind away from taking the lead. Well done anyway! Smile

Not quite sure how I convinced myself an England win was on the cards and consequently went for Foakes as the keeper! Both of us seduced by the ball nipping around under the lights like trent bridge on a gloomy day mantra I think.

Goodness, you mean this isn't the England selectors' forum?!

Where on earth do I pitch my cunning plan of sending Woakes up in the next test as a pinch-hitting opener, and picking Root as a specialist bowler? All that batting lark has been adversely affecting his bowling for the past eight years, y'know.
