If I hold a gun to your head at Kingston ...

Postby Ankur » Tue Jun 03, 2014 6:25 pm

..... And ask you to pick 5 men who will get at least 500 points, for you not to be shot who would you pick from the last test.

Points:
1 run = 1 point
1 wkt = 25 points
1 catch = 5 points
1 stumping = 15 points
1 run out = 20 points

Ankur 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 485 - 515 or top the table you will be exempted from being shot in the next game.

Please post your 5 players by 6th June 8 pm EST and don't 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.

As far as cricket is concerned, WI = subcontinent. Spin is king, nobody knows how to bowl above 130, and the only tournament anybody cares about is the IPL.

Above 130? Roach and Taylor are back in the squad! Roach is going to have a Johnson like comeback!

Nice to see Taylor and Benn back.

WI have some really good spinners in Benn, Narine, Bishoo and one or two others and they still have very talented fast bowlers sadly they just can't their act together
It is not often u com across a quality individual who lives n breathes loyalty 2 his country n teammates.His individual contribution has been outstanding despite continuing unwarranted n unfair criticism that he gets from both media n public–Dav on Misbah

Very exciting game. Shillingford's 53 threatened to win it for Gaintscrub, but Benn's 25 helped keep it safe for Asim.
