If I hold a trump to your head - for England v India Series

Postby TedWard » Tue Jul 15, 2014 6:19 pm

Quick get your teams in before the lords test....

A mix of the IIHAGTYH and triumphator games. (because there are no games just for this series...)

Pick 2 batsmen, 2 bowlers and an all rounder or wicket keeper to last you the series....

(4 swaps allowed for the series).

POINTS:
BATSMEN:
Runs: 1pt per run.
20 bonus points for reaching 50.
30 more bonus points for reaching 100.
20 more bonus points for reaching 150.
30 more bonus points for reaching 200
-50 for picking teams worst batsman.

BOWLERS:
25 points per wicket.
25 more bonus points for 3fer.
25 more bonus points for 4fer.
25 more bonus points for 5fer.
-50 for picking teams worst bowler.

FIELDING:
10 points per catch.
25 pts per stumping.
25 pts per run out.

BONUS POINTS:
MOM: 50 Pts.
TRUMP: Pts doubled for the test.

IMPORTANT:
Only your all rounder gets points for bowling and batting - i.e andersons 81+ runs wouldnt have counted unless you picked him as your designated all rounder.

Kudos awarded for most pts scored in each test - and the series overall.

Trumps are not daily - but you pick one player for the test and their pts for the entire test are doubled.

Thank You.

Raja 517
GS 487
Super 343
Ted 340
Ankur 318
Scrub 237
Lungi 189
Leo 168

Not a great deal of movement since yesterday....
Lungi moved up with the inclusion of Jadeja, could rise further if I knew who the nosepicker was.

(P.S I will not believe you if you tell me Kumar is your nosepicker).

Just noticed only one person picked Kumar.

Final Results are in, and befor Lungi says anything, its not unusual for the game organiser to finish first in these games....

Ted 802
GS 781
Raja 668
Scrub 628
Lungi 438
Ankur 376
Super 331
Leo 281
pts off for picking any of the following Broad, Robson, Binny or Kohli.


Reminder: My team -
Cook (Trump)
Vijay
Anderson
I Sharma
Ali (All rounder)

My tactics were to wait for Super to post and then make sure I didnt pick any players that he did.

Ted, good plan!

It was pretty much The African and 3 passengers for me. And an Ashwin. f**k, Ashwin will never get to play now that India won with this crap team of theirs. England continues to screw me over.
