If I hold a gun to your head in early summer England ...

Postby Ankur » Fri May 16, 2014 7:22 pm

..... And ask you to pick 5 men who will get atleast 750 points, for you not to be shot who would you pick from the ODI series

Points:
1 run = 1 point
1 wkt = 15 points
1 catch = 5 points
1 stumping = 15 points
1 run out = 20 points

Leo exempted from shooting
Lets see how many of us experts get to stay alive and gain most CF points in the process.

*If you manage to get between 735 - 765 or top the table you will be exempted from being shot in the next game.

Please post your 5 players by 20th May 8pm EST and dont modify after once submitted.

Bonus points
If you chose 2 batsman and 2 bowler from 2 different teams, your PGA will be doubled. If you lose the penalty will neither be increased or decreased.
Select b2 bowlers, 2 batsman and a keeper

Extra Bonus
Nominate the player, who will collect the most points from those selected in this game, in red and double your PGA or zero out your negative PGA.
