Post by Pal Joey Wed 01 Jun 2022, 12:25 pm

The 2022 England v New Zealand Test Series Tipping Competition Rules:

The Rules:

1.
Pick 2 (two) batsmen and 2 (two) bowlers from both England and New Zealand 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.
Root, Stokes, Broad, Anderson
Williamson, Conway, Jamieson, Southee


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

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.
England (Foakes) or New Zealand (Blundell) or the same number 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.
England or New Zealand or Draw

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 25 points for 100 runs.
extra 30 points for 150 runs.
extra 45 points for 200 runs.
extra 60 points for 250 runs.
extra 125 bonus points for 300+ runs.

Note: the batting & bowling score bonuses accumulate so;

Batting: (per innings)
100 runs = 125 points. A player scores 137 runs + 25 = 162 points.
150 runs = 205 points. A player scores 177 runs + 25 + 30 = 232 points.
200 runs = 300 points. A player scores 243 runs + 25 + 30 + 45 = 343 points.
250 runs = 410 points. A player scores 282 runs + 25 + 30 + 45 + 60 = 442 points
300+ runs = 585 points. A player scores 321 runs + 25 + 30 + 45 + 60 + 125 = 606 points.

Bowling: (per innings)
25 points per wicket with a bonus 50 points for a 5-fer.
An extra 30 points for 6-fer, 45 for 7-fer, 60 for 8-fer, 75 for 9-fer.
An extra 100 bonus points for a 10-fer.

5 wickets = 125 points + 50 = 175 points
6 wickets = 150 points + 50 + 30 = 230 points.
7 wickets = 175 points + 50 + 30 + 45 = 300 points
8 wickets = 200 points + 50 + 30 + 45 + 60 = 385 points
9 wickets = 225 points + 50 + 30 + 45 + 60 + 75 = 485 points
10 wickets = 250 points + 50 + 30 + 45 + 60 + 75 + 100 = 610 points

Caught and bowled = 25 points for the wicket + 25 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: 50 points for correct selection for most dismissals across both innings.
Or if you think the wicket keepers 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 you earn 25 points only.

4.
a) Correctly predict who wins the toss = 25 points
b) Correctly predict what the winning Captain decides to do = 25 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 match = 125 points.
b) If you guess all 3 Test match outcomes correctly then there is a further 125 point bonus = 375 + 125 = 500 points.
Note: Correctly predict a "Draw" = 125 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).
It 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 up until the point of the replacement of the injured player from the field – you must start accumulating points from scratch with them.

*****

June 2-6, 2022: 1st Test at Lord's. England won by 5 wickets (1-0)

June 10-14, 2022: 2nd Test at Trent Bridge. England won by 5 wickets (2-0)

June 23-27, 2022: 3rd Test at Headingley. England won by 7 wickets (3-0)

Not true , Tino ! I avidly devour every one of your gems : even the R-Rated ones from that sometimes politically incorrect society of yours ...

Alfie: Jamieson for Wagner (as per above) OK
Soul: noted above - Boult for Henry OK
Lowland: de Grandhomme for Henry... or let me know if you want Boult instead
Guildford: Jamieson for Wagner (as per above) OK
JD: who do you want instead of Henry? No Wagner. Boult or Southee or someone else?  OK
Pal Joey: Boult for Henry (as per above)

Kiwis pulled a fast one on all of us naming Boult at the last minute ! Did not expect that...

Happy to stick with Jamieson anyway seeing as Wagner is out : at least he gives me another all rounder of sorts Smile

Also meant to say : many thanks PJ for getting this up and running at basically the last minute : adds to the fun of Test Cricket thumbsup

Question : Did anyone pick Jack Leach ? And if so , do they automatically get Parkinson ?

No, nobody picked Jack Leach... but Duty and JD have Potts.

You're sharing first place with Lowland on 142 points at lunch.

Notes:
No movement from anyone, except alfie and myself, after the fall of the 4th wicket in the 22nd over early in the 2nd session.
Your eyes aren't deceiving... there's a heavy grouping in the 490s.
Actually, it's a pretty compact table; except for alfie way out in front on 570.

I picked Stokes the batter as effectively a 3rd bowler. It thus far has not paid off.

Yes, he still seems under-cooked with the ball. I picked him too. Maybe he'll come to life a bit more in his 2nd dig at the crease.

Blimey : top of the heap (for now) ! Some consolation for seeing England dismembered over the last four sessions.
Think I owe Southee and Blundell a glass or two of Speight's.

Long way to go...

I see the pack is closing on me already : serve me right for only picking Root as a catcher ! Need him to keep going anyway so I get my "England win" choice ... so I am happy to (hopefully) concede the lead (and probably about six places !) once the last day's business is done...

Thanks for these quick updates , PJ thumbsup

Cheers alfie.

Actually, I always think I'm a bit late updating the scores for everyone else. Posted the table up at around 08:30 this morning (which is 23:30 in the UK) which is a little bit beyond "dinner time" as promised.

I only made it to just before Bairstow got out... that over with the 3 x fours. I went to bed thinking he'd either be on about 80 runs when I woke up - or out quite soon, the way he was really going for it.

Should be a fascinating finish. Root is key obviously. Part of me also wants him to get those 23 runs (with cautious ease) but the other part is hoping for a real nail-biting end to the match.

Notes:
Firstly, congratulations to all England fans.  clap   A much needed win and hopefully a sign of better things to come in the future.
Well done Olly! The cream of Essex rising to the top.  A handy 41-point lead over Alfie after the first Test. That'll fire him up, surely?
A great day too for Lowlandbrit, Tino and Guildford; who along with Olly, also scored 238 points on the final day.
At the other end of the table... don't worry. I'll sweep the floor, switch off the lights and lock the virtual pavilion door before the next match.  laughing
Not long before the 2nd Test starts on Friday. Enjoy the celebrations and I look forward to receiving some crafty selections later in the week.
Thanks again for your participation, everyone. Really enjoyed plugging in the numbers. Oh, and I'll remember to leave a blank for "Day 5". OK

Hmm...so only Olly went past me , I see. Hadn't realised there were so many England pessimists on this round...I am glad to escape without too much punishment for my foolishness in giving Root the game off Smile

Good work Olly but the race is only beginning... and perhaps it is better to be the hunter than the hare ? ...looking forward to round two with PJ continuing to run this excellent competition thumbsup
