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

Postby Ankur » Tue Jun 10, 2014 11:36 am

..... 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

TBDexempted 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 10th 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.

So few options. I have the choice of Sri Lankan batsmen (bad in England), Sri Lankan spinners (bad on this pitch), Sri Lankan fast bowlers (bad in general), or Englishmen (…yeah).

Let's give this a go.
