My International XI has really dropped off. That's a bit disappointing.

It went totally wrong for me when Rajasthan and SRH screwed up.

I still have Raina, Dhoni, Sehwag and Narine. I'm guessing most others have Dhoni and Narine too though.

It is actually as good as having Dhoni and Naraine and anybody else super.. shewag makes 2 or 5 runs at the best of his times and raina is an idiot so...

I was quite foolish thinking Sehwag would have a great comeback season. He's poop.

Hahah!

With 2 matches left we have 5 batsmen qualifying for the bonus and 1 bowler. Narine is at 6.01 so if he decides to play the final and forego the first test in Jamaica then might be able to get there.

He can still make first test after the final ? They say he miss practice not the test? There are 7 days in between. He is not a rookie and does not need practice for a tuk tuk test match with newzealand.

WICB are trying to be serious about these things. I'm sure SRK could just give them some money and make everything better.

Congrats FP! I finished 5th when you take out all the extra teams so that's not so bad. Ted, that was a tight one in the end.

Ankur, yes, this was a batsmen's game this year. Quite surprising after the years past when Steyn, Narine and others really scored massive points. However, I really like this format. It's much easier to follow. Thanks again for running all these games!

Was it the same scoring method this year?; usually a team ends up on a massive amount of points..

No, there was just one bonus. Not stacking bonuses like in year's past (one of the reasons it was named KISS.)
