World Cricket - 2018-19: November 6, 2018 to March 20, 2019


This will be the 15th edition of World Cricket here at FT ...

Nobody has ever retained their title in the 14 years this comp has been run frown .... And we have had the same podium for two years in a row now ... srini701 starts as the defending champion, paper_aero and N-Bomb were also on the last 2 podiums.

Other than West Indies and Zimbabwe, We will see all other major Test-playing countries in action this season. 17 rounds in all this season, with 4 rounds of ODIs and the rest being Test matches. 3 Test matches starting on Boxing Day will be our biggest round.

You will as usual pick 5 players for Test matches and 6 (or more) for ODI series from the list of players I will provide and score as many points as the runs/wickets by your selected player. A carefully chosen Trump player can double your points and boost your scores considerably. If you are not a regular visitor to the forums here, you can still lodge a team at the beginning of a series and allow it to score for you till a new series comes about. The "super-sub" rule will continue to allow you to score for any player who you may pick but doesn't play...

Most threads won't be up till a few days before a match/series and as always there will be some rounds with 2 Tests in them.

9 people each played the last 3 seasons. It was 10 last year, before illiniman14 dropped off for the last few rounds. Hoping to see people sustain their interest in the "most challenging" tipping competition here at FunTrivia wink

  • A warm welcome to the 9 courageous and brave "fans" of the "most difficult tipping comp on FT" (yes, I have decided to award my comp this title myself, over the A-League and any other toughie out there grin ) ... illiniman14 is missing from last year's lineup but we seem to have attracted a newbie, Daaanieeel, who lodged picks for round 2....hoping he will last the course...

  • England turned around their away Test form in some style to ruin the farewell test of Rangana Herath. There were some superb all round performances, and debutant wicket keeper Ben Foakes added a happy headache to England's growing riches in the all-rounder category....will he play once regular wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow returns? A 3rd keeper, Jos Buttler, is already playing as a specialist batsman!

  • Sri Lanka will have some real large shoes to fill from the very 2nd Test, with Herath's departure. Dilruwan Perera had a very good Test, and he seems set to be the team's leading spinner, at least for now.

  • Howie72 got off the blocks with a bang, with Perera alone netting him more points than the total points managed by our first spooner, gtho4! N-Bomb, ElfTwinkle and LeoDaVinci all are off to a good start too....srini and wwe84 are trying to give company to gtho4 for now....long season ahead, folks wink

    Supersubs scoring this round: Rory Burns for gtho4 in place of Lahiru Kumara, as Sri Lanka went with just one medium pacer.

    The next 2 rounds include the same teams. If you do not lodge picks, your first test team continues to score....your call now...

  • Daaanieeel marks his debut in our comp in style, picking a brilliant team that almost gets him a HoF. That N-Bomb pipped him to this is only incidental. Here's looking to an interesting season ahead and to seeing our newcomer give the old guns a run for their money smile

  • It was a good round for most, except srini701 and wwe84, both of whose trump players flopped miserably. England got the better of Sri Lanka for the second round in a row, with the English spinners adapting better and with their captain Root leading from the front with the bat. It's the first away series win for England since 2015.

    Supersubs scoring this round: Kusal Mendis for LeoDaVinci in place of Jonny Bairstow, but he may as well not have bothered...

    The next round from Friday November 23 has 2 Tests...we skipped the first Test between New Zealand and Pakistan and are picking the second. Please make sure you come in and pick players for that Test, if you do not want to change your team for the England-Sri Lanka 3rd Test. The 4th round will see the start of the season down under...

    Some interesting stats about thie Test I just read up (courtesy ESPNcricinfo):

    2000-01: The last time England won a Test series in Sri Lanka.

    2012-13: The last time before this tour in which England had won two successive away Tests. Their last away win before this series had come against Bangladesh at Chittagong, after which they had lost ten matches out of the 13 that they played outside England.

    Thirty-eight wickets fell to spin in the Pallekele Test, the most ever in Test history

    0 Wickets taken by England pacers in this match. This is only the third time that England have won a Test match when their quick bowlers have not taken a single wicket. The last such instance had come in the 1956 Ashes Test at Old Trafford

    38 Number of wickets taken by spinners in this Test - the most in a Test match ever.

  • England managed a very rare away series whitewash (their first such away win since 1963!) "upsetting" the home team Sri Lanka, who were actually 'favourites' when the series started...this was just Sri Lanka's 3rd white wash at home in all Tests. The last 2 Tests were probably closer than the final results show, but England's spinners did an admirable job throughout (Moeen Ali now has the joint-most 4th innings wickets in Tests won for England in their history!). Ben Stokes was very silently the difference between the 2 sides (see his points this Test....none of us picked him grin )

  • After New Zealand won the first Test in a rather dramatic fashion (by 4 runs), Pakistan was seething with revenge, but no one probably expected their spinner Yasir Shah to have such a monster of a Test (well, I certainly didn't frown )....He picked up 14 wickets, including 10 in a day, as Pakistan thrashed New Zealand by an innings. Plenty of other unwanted records fell too (6 batsmen out for ducks in New Zealand's first innings as they collapsed from 50/0 to 90 all out).

  • Howie72 was laughing all the way after picking Yasir Shah as his "double/Trump" as he stretches his lead out front....N-Bomb is keeping pace with him. wwe84 was the 3rd player to have Yasir Shah as his trump, and he's thankful for that after Yasir scored more than 50% of wwe84's points this round. At the other end, srini701 picked Mohammad Abbas as his trump and got a whole lot of a big, fat 0 for that (570 points for Yasir - 0 for Abbas...do the maths mad ) ....but faring better than srini was ozzz2002, who managed to jinx every player he picked this round....or is it the other way around confused

  • gtho4 could have score some more points, but he forgot to pick a trump player for the New Zealand Test. ElfTwinkle lodged her picks a day late (but before the New Zealand Test started), so she lost out on a trump player score there. Daaanieeel did not lodge a trump player for the England Test, but luckily, his trump from the previous Test continued....just a reminder that unless you specifically change players or teams in a series, your previously picked players will continue to score for you. It's only for a new Test/series that you need to lodge picks afresh.

    Supersubs scoring this round: 4 of us had supersubs in action (and quite decently too at that for most)...Angelo Mathews scored for Daaanieeel in place of Dananjaya, Jeet Raval scored for paper_aero in place of Matt Henry, Sarfraz Ahmed scored for ozzz2002 instead of Tim Southee, while Jos Buttler scored for wwe84 instead of Sam Curran.

    The next round will see the start of the season down under....India and Australia start a 4-Test series from December 6....Please do NOT wait for the deadline on the tipping thread...especially if you are in the Americas smile

  • India won a Test in Australia for only the 3rd time in the last 35 years and won the opening Test of the series for the very first time ever! Australia were without 2 of their best batsmen, but their bowling lineup was intact....it was not Kohli who was the difference between the sides but Cheteswar Pujara, who came up with defining knocks in both innings. The Australian middle and lower order fought admirably well in the fourth innings and the Test was far more closer than it appears, but guess India were deserving winners at the end....promises to be a good series, what with the next test a new pitch at Perth!

  • Howie72 takes a spoon this round but is still on the top...his lead has been shaved by a 100 points though...paper_aero is the round's winner, while srini701 has finally started his season....there's a long way to go in this season's comp wink

  • LeoDaVinci and ozzz2002 defaulted this round.

    Supersubs scoring this round: Pat Cummins in place of Ravindra Jadeja for ElfTwinkle. wwe84 had a player missing, but then his supersub was also missing in action...it's sheer bad luck for him this round.

    The next round from December 14 is again 2 Tests as the New Zealand home season starts. The Biggest round for our season will be the Boxing Day when 3 Test matches take place. Please make sure you don't miss the next 2 rounds smilee

  • India came crashing down to earth after their high at Adelaide. They took one look at the Perth pitch and decided they needed four fast bowlers to do the job even as the home team went with a specialist spinner. Eventually India's number 8-11 together made 11 runs in the whole Test, the fourth fast bowler did nothing, whereas the one spinner Australia picked (Nathan Lyon) went on to be the player of the match...Australia were always ahead despite a brilliant century by Virat Kohli and richly deserved their win....incidentally, their first under Tim Paine and the first since the win early in the year under Steve Smith. The series is very much alive going into the Boxing Day Test at Melbourne.

  • The other Test at Wellington was a batathon, with 1 huge double century, 2 centuries and a ton a fifties...2 Sri Lankan batsmen batted out the whole 4th day and the 5th day was washed out to ensure the Test ended in a stalemate. A pity none of us picked Tom Latham, who went on to make the highest Test score in history while carrying his bat (264).

  • ozzz2002 wondered which Aussie batsman to pick, but that was no cause for worry for him, as he picked a nice little squad to help him win a HoF and move up the ladder a bit. Howie72 is off the top and N-Bomb replaces him there. Daaanieeel continues his impressive run and he had another stellar round. LeoDaVinci takes his first spoon despite picking a decent team...it's just not our day sometimes in this cruel sport, Leo frown

    Supersubs scoring this round: A brilliant supersub pick of Nathan Lyon helps N-Bomb. Travis Head scored for Leo (both picked R Jadeja). Dhananjaya De Silva scored for gtho4 instead of Sandakan.

    The next round is even bigger, with 3 Test matches starting in the southern hemisphere on the Boxing Day...a game changer of a round, so even if you want your teams from this round to continue, please lodge picks for the South Africa Pakistan series that's starting.

  • Three massive Boxing Day Tests in the southern hemisphere and they all had their moments. New Zealand won their 4th series in a row, with some sterling performances from Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls and Trent Boult. The Kiwis are now #3 on the Test rankings. Cheteswar Pujara continued his fine run in Australia and Jasprit Bumrah became the first bowler from the sub-continent to take five-fors in each of South Africa, England, and Australia in the same year as India beat Australia to retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. It was Duanne Olivier all the way as South Africa beat Pakistan in their first Test. 11 wickets for the African fast bowler who was only playing because Vernon Philander was out injured! Wonder who the home team will drop in the second test now...

  • It was a massive round, but none of us really ran away with it...Howie72 took the round's honours and with N-Bomb slipping a little, Howie takes back the lead. gtho4 takes the spoon, almost 700 points behind Howie.

    Supersubs scoring this round: Surprisingly, only 2! Rohit Sharma scored for ElfTwinkle in place of Ashwin, while Shaheen Afridi and Mohd. Amir scored for ozzz2002 and paper_aero respectively, instead of Mohammad Abbas. wwe84 named only 4 players each in 2 Tests, but luckily his supersubs were in action to score for him as his 5th players.

    This is the year of the World Cup, and so there will be some huge rounds coming up as we enter the ODI stretch of our season leading to March....please research up players from all countries grin

    The next round is again 2 Tests followed by a single Test round between South Africa and Pakistan. If you do not wish to name squads, your teams from this round can continue scoring for you the next 2 rounds...

srini, I think you will find Kumara took 3 wickets in the first inning and 2 wickets in the second inning against New Zealand so those of us with him should have an extra 60 points. smile

  • Virat Kohli's team created history by becoming the first ever Indian team to win a series down under in 71 years. Australia were without 2 of their best batsmen, but they still had a world-class bowling line up and a top notch Test team is supposed to be ready with replacements for players. Australia were outplayed in the final Test and it was only rain that prevented India from finishing the series 3-1. David warner and Steve Smith will slot right back into this Aussie side once their bans are over, but it will be interesting to see how the rest of the batsmen shape up.

  • Elsewhere, Pakistan continue to suffer after the retirement of MisYou (Misbah and Yonis Khan) and their batsmen continue to splutter and falter. Dale Steyn and Co. ran through the Pakistan line up to seal a 2-0 series win with one more test to go....no reason to see why it won't finish 3-0, even if the South African captain Faf Du Plessis is suspended from the final Test (for poor over rate).

  • wwe84 and Daaanieeel had 1000+ points once again, with the for former landing his first HoF spot for the season. gtho4 was running on default team from the previous round, but paper_aero still pips him for the spoon and is now looking over his shoulders at a fast surging Daaanieeel.

    Supersubs scoring this round: Cheteswar Pujara scored a ton of points for gtho4 and ozzz2002 in place of Ishant Sharma, while Mohd Amir fared decently well for ElfTwinkle and Howie72 instead of Hasan Ali. gtho4 had a second supersub in Asad Shafiq scoring instead of Keshav Maharaj for him.

    The next round is the 3rd Test between South Africa and Pakistan from Jan 11 before we switch to the 5 match ODI series between these two same countries (from Jan 19).

  • South Africa duly blew Pakistan away for a 3-0 sweep of the series. Duanne Olivier, the 4th fast bowler of South Africa who may not even have played the series had Philander's fingers been alright in the first test, picked up 24 wickets in the 3-Test series and was the difference between the two sides. He picked up 8 wickets in the 3rd Test as well.

  • ozzz2002 and gtho4 landed two very good sides to pick up some much needed points. wwe84 scored more points with a 4-man team than our spooner, srini701 did with his full complement! Howie72 seems to have built a nice cushion for himself at the top. However, there are plenty of 5-match ODI series coming up now that can tilt the balance a whole lot the other way, so he's till got to be on his toes grin

    Supersubs scoring this round: None....wwe84 had Yasir Shah as his supersub and he only picked 4 people, but Shah didn't turn up too...

    The next round will see these two same teams square off in a 5-match ODI series from January 19. Remember for ODIs, we need to pick 6 players plus a supersub.
