    I have run a poll because I’m not sure if there will be enough interest, but with the Ashes starting next Wednesday, i thought it might add to the fun to have a friendly comp for the five test matches.

    Anyone can enter, it’s really simple all you would have to do is spread out 200 points per match in anyway you liked into an England win, Australia win plus the draw.

    Example –

    England 100
    Australia 52
    Draw 48

    If the match ended in a draw you would score 48.

    You are also allowed to pick any one player per match who will also score points.

    Player points as followed

    Batting 1 run = 1 point
    Bowling 1 wicket = 20 points
    fielding 1 catch =10 points

    After the five tests the winner will be the person who has scored the most points.

    edit’ change day of start first test.

    Good idea Nathan, I’ll give it a bash

    Much swotting on Cricinfo required methinks, having had only the C5 highlights as my tutor since the TCB sold out to Murdoch

    Is this the first Test Match to have been played at Sophia Gardens?

    Following on from the pointless expansion of the Test circuit to include Chester-le-Street, this is indeed the newest English Test venue.

    Although I think the Glamorgan authorities would prefer you to call it The Swalec Stadium, whilst the ECB like to use ‘Cardiff Stadium’.

    Its Sophia Gardens, as far as I’m concerned.
