    1st Test selections on this thread

    Rules

    Entries must be made before the first ball of each Test match.
    No editing of post’s after first ball.

    There will be a separate thread for each Test match.

    Scoring

    You have 200 points in each match to spread out in anyway you chose to put into an England win, Australia win plus the draw. example as followed.

    England 99
    Australia 66
    Draw 35

    If Australia win you will score 66

    Selections made that are over 200 points will have the amount over taken off their highest prediction.

    Selections made that are under 200 points will have the amount under put onto their lowest prediction.

    You also score points with a power player. You chose one player per match that will score you points as followed.

    batting – for every 1 run = 1 point
    bowling – for every 1 wicket = 20 points
    fielding – 1 catch = 10 points, 1 stumping = 10 points. (run outs don’t score.)

    You can pick as many reserve power players as you like. If none of your chosen players are involved in the match or you forget to chose a player then the first batsman of the team batting first will become the selection but will start with minus 20 points(so get a reserve in)

    The winner will be the person who scores the most points added together from each Test match.

    I think that covers all the rules and scoring, if anything comes up within the five matches my decision will be final….. :unsure:

    I just knew if I put Root as my reserve he’d get a hundred. In fact he’ll probably get two. Hopefully my PP will now get a couple of quacks :yahoo:

    Thumbs up to that Homer.
    My picking Johnson has put the mockers on him again.
    Should do a county championship version, just as well hand Yorkshire the championship now.

    Remiss of me Nathan. Dry and getting both warmer and more humid which should help fast swing on an otherwise flattish pitch. Possibility of showers on the final day; but by then the Mitchells will have skittled we Limeys anyway. Enjoy those Saturday night 4Xes Ozzers

    It’s only early July Nathan. Plenty of time left yet and there could be 11 Yorkies in the England team come the end of the Ashes series 😉 It is looking promising for us Tykes though.
