The 2023 Ashes Tipping Competition

The 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.
Root, Bairstow, Robinson, Anderson
Labuschagne, Head, Cummins, Boland


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


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 (Bairstow) or Australia (Carey) 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 bowl/field?
e.g.
Bat


5.
a) Predict the Ashes Test result.
e.g.
England or Australia 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 the correct selection for the 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 5 Test match outcomes correctly then there is a further 125 point bonus = 625 + 125 = 750 points.
c) 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 16 - 20, 2023: 1st Test at Edgbaston. Australia won by 2 wickets [0-1]

June 28 - July 2, 2023: 2nd Test at Lord's. Australia won by 43 runs [0-2]

July 6 - 10, 2023: 3rd Test at Headingley. England won by 3 wickets [1-2]

July 19 -23, 2023: 4th Test at Old Trafford. Match Drawn [1-2]

July 27 - 31, 2023: 5th Test at The Oval. England won by 49 runs [2-2]


*****

Good luck with your selections!

Hope so. Then you'll be able to get a phone call outlining when it's arrived, the weight etc. while you're watching Zak Crawley make a double ton.

You say that but babies sleep sh*t loads in the first few weeks. Friday might be an issue but after that, CnR will have hours on the sofa with a sleeping kid in his arms watching the Ashes. T2 and T3 will be right in his sweet spot.

Compelling - when my cousin's first child was born, it was similar hot weather as now. As part of his advance preparations, he made some sandwiches for himself which he put in a plastic container and left in the freezer until the big day.

Come the day, he took his wife to the hospital along with the container. All went well and an hour or so after the birth, whilst sitting by his wife and new daughter, he felt peckish, opened the top of the container and reached inside for a sarnie. Unfortunately, he had taken the wrong container as he discovered when his hand emerged covered in melted raspberry ripple ice cream!

You'll probably be better off taking a bottle from your pub. Good luck to all! Very Happy

Yes Afro, same format. Great to see you again!
Just copy and paste someone else's pick and then edit to your own selections.

Pick 2 batters + 2 bowlers from each side
1 player with most catches from each side
Most wicket keeper dismissals - Bairstow or Carey
Who wins the toss and what they decide to do
Winner of the match.. or a draw

As you just have done... OK

OK, KC and Guildford. Change noted Aus/bat, KC... and Boland as your reserve if no Starc, Guildford.

Let me know if you want Hazlewood anyone...

Superfly - let me know your replacement for Starc.

Cheers for the invite, Joey. Sorry I'm a bit late getting back to you.

No worries, Chris. I'll get you on the scoresheet. OK

Just post up your 2 fielders for catches and run-outs.

Points Table
1st Test, Edgbaston, Day 1:

390 Eirebilly [390} *#
366 Marky [366] *#
317 Pal Joey [317]
303 KP_Fan [303] *
295 Soul Requiem [295]
288 Tino [288] *
286 Alfie [286]
277 Compelling and Rich [277]
267 Superflyweight [267] *#

242 JDizzle [242]
241 James [241] *
233 Guildfordbat [233]
223 Olly [223]
217 King Carlos [217]
130 Lowlandbrit [130] *
102 Afro [102]

* denotes correct pick England win toss
# denotes correct pick England elected to bat

Average score: 260 [260]

First figure - accumulative score / accumulative average score
Second figure in [brackets] - daily score / daily average

Notes:
A great start for Billy, Marky and Superfly who all correctly picked England winning the toss and electing to bat. 50 points each. clap
There were 25 bonus points on top of Root's marvellous 118* for many of us.
Lyon came in handy for many of us too with his 4 wickets earning 100 points.
Tino was surging up the ranks at one stage - he is the only one with Bairstow... and Root. Ale
The table will no doubt move around quite a bit today - so for anyone who is at or near the bottom of the log - don't lose heart.  OK

I hope everything went well for Compelling and Rich and his Mrs yesterday and the new addition to the family is doing well too. Hug

Great Job PJ OK
For the sake of tipping competition I was wishing Eng had not declared and gone on for a bit more
In Root & Lyon we were collecting our bagful of points from both sides.....Lyon was on cusp of 5-fer (bonus)

Dry pitch , Old seamers.....today I hope will be the day of The Legendary Muhammad Ali's off spin 2023 Ashes Series Tipping Competition 1f601

ha ha, yeah, thanks Alfie. I went to bed at 04:10... and woke up around 09:30. That's the latest I've got up in ages.
I knew the scores before I went to bed but I actually felt a bit drained after yesterday's play and I guess it all caught up with me.
Had to check the spreadsheet again in the morning just in case there were any mistakes... and to avoid any possible cross-examinations.  Wink

Thanks KP_fan. So was I. Odd thing to say I know... but it's sort of true for me too.
Yes, Lyon was close to a 5-fer... we can blame Stokes for depriving us of more points. He's one your picks I note. Smile
Maybe Mo still has some punch left in him with the ball. I hope not! He sure was good value while he lasted with the bat.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to see how it all pans out later today.

Cheers pj, mum and baby home now all doing well

Running on adrenaline for a while which has gone now 😴

I didn’t dream in a daze that stokes declared on day 1 on a flat pitch while our best batsman was 118 no did I?

Many congratulations, Compelling! Great news - you must be almost as chuffed as Olly ('Seasons' thread refers). clap Wink
