The Ali v Rashid Thread

Scoring system starting from yesterday, set on an innings by innings basis.

One point to the batsman who scores most runs. Bonus point for a 50, 2nd bonus point for a century.

One point for best bowling analysis. Bonus points for 5fers and most economical.

Points halved for warmup games.

Currently Rashid 1 Ali 0

Can't see this generating much interest.

Do you mean that whichever of Ali and Rashid is most economical gets a bonus point, or that if one of them is the most economical bowler in the innings then they get a bonus point? Judging by the previous post (announcing the scoreline 1--1) it looks like the former, but the latter would perhaps seem more appropriate.

If one bowler gets 10 wickets and the other bowls loads of maidens we might want the first of those bowlers to get more points for that innings, mightn't we?

Fair points but the binary nature of the discussion on the other thread means I will leave as is for now. Is 4/100 off 25 overs more or less valuable than 1/45 off 30? It seems we are yet to determine the answer.

Fair enough. I just hope you've set the initial parameters in such a way as to engineer the correct conclusion ;-)

Ok you win but only because of the shambles of a warm up game in which people were batting twice. Bloody ECB.
