It's about time I point out my strategy.

My idea was to take advantage of the double scoring for SRs over 150 and ERs of under 6. I picked most of my guys based on whether or not I thought they had a good chance to achieve these. We'll see.

I am keeping a running total, so if a player pushes himself over 150 his points double and get back when it f all's below, but yes there is nothing definite till he has played his last game.

Real programmers do not have bugs. It must have been a feature removed going forward.

I am leading even with a 10 man team. I had requested to replace injured Bravo with Dwayne Smith after he got injured. It is only fair to do so. Even the real IPL league allows it. So I am just going to assume the same and add points collected by Dwayne Smith from the date my request was made. I think that puts me just over 3100. I will calculate and post the exact number later.

F_P looks like my biggest challenger atm.

As it looks now 4 of his players are going to make it to semis:
Raina
Dhoni
Maxwell
And maybe Sammy for Hyderabad.

I on the other hand have 3 players from Kings 11 and 3 from Rajasthan and 3 from Hyderabad. So if all goes well I could win pretty comfortably.

Maxwell just has to fail a couple of times and everyone's score will come crashing down :)

Fingers crossed!

Its a running total, they have already been doubled. Having said that Maxi has 516 in 258 balls, he would need to play atleast 85 dot balls, from now till end of the tournament to drag him down below a S/R of 150.

There's only 6 guys to this point that qualify for the SR or ER bonuses.

Xfactor
Namanator
AB
Kedar Jadhav (who?)
Miller

Ankit Sharma (who's only played two matches for RR now)

Interestingly, Rampaul played one match and bowled 4 overs 0 for 16 then hasn't played again for RCB. Meanwhile their other bowlers go for tons of runs.

Rampaul is from WI, dont think they can drop Gayle, AB or Starc, they have gone with Murali as 4th option.

Like all competitions there are pre-tournament favorites and tournament top performers. Most of the time they are different. The thing about IPL is , everybody gets paid differently based of pre-tournament favorite status. When so much money is involved its tough to let the most expensive players sit on bench, but eventually they need to realise MI is stronger without Corey Anderson, Kolkotta without Kallis, Punjab without Marsh, and Banglore without Gayle.

If you look at this season's performances, its evident sooner the realization has stuck the better the teams have done.

Murali might be the key in this situation.

Yeah, I forgot even that Kallis was on KKR.

Yes, don't let it happen again. Can't keep letting FP win these things.
