How does the score prediction work - do you need to predict the exact winning margin or is there some kind of scaling system?

Actually I find it a bit too coincidental. The EXACT margin. Fucking hell. I mean predicting by 50, or even 55 I would have accepted - but 54 ...

I hate to say Hansie, but ...

Anyways - good one. At least I predicted within the margin.

to qualify for a margin point, you have to be within 30 runs or 3 wickets of the actual outcome...

does that answer your question?

Yup. Thanks.

I would go to the superbru site but my company seems to have issues with sports predictions sites - i.e. firewalled :mecry:

Ok, so I am an idiot for reading the margin rules after predicting ...lots of games.

Correct me if I am wrong.

The margin point is based on a 30 run difference. [You have to get the team right, unlike the rugby where if its close and you pick the wrong team you might still get a point.]

So if I pick a difference of 10, I cover the range of a 1 run win to a 40 run win
And if I pick a difference of 30, I cover the range of a 1 run win to a 60 run win. A bigger target area to hit.

So why does anybody ever predict less than a 30 run win? (ok so maybe you want the bonus point)

i'm willing to dismiss it as an anomaly for now. but if it happens again I'll definitely be saying h*nsie, and calling for a full, international investigation...

i really expected more of a fight from the minnows. Canada just crumbled, and Scotland looked like they were batting with cardboard cutouts. Oh well. So I will drop far behind now ...
