Some summer fun based on 2019 World Cup CricketWould members be interested in participating in Guess The Result (GTR) activities based on the matches of the 2019 World Cup Cricket? I will initiate a forum thread on 30th May to discuss the World Cup, wherein members can talk about all the matches. However, one day prior to each India game, I was thinking of raising a thread wherein questions will be asked and you have to be like a soothsayer, predicting the outcome. We had a similar activity for one of the cricket tournaments at a sister site of ISC and it was jolly good fun.
The questions will somewhat be like this -
1. Which team will win the toss?
2. Which team will bat first?
3. Who will bowl the last over?
The questions will be only for the matches of Team India and will vary. There will be two or more questions for each match. The thread will be kept open only for that one day, prior to the match, and members can put in their predictions in the thread itself. Once the match is over and the answers are known, one point and one cc will be given to each correct prediction. As such there are no major awards, though, like we have for contests. It will just be something fun to do and everyone can participate, even if you are not a cricket fan! There will be no negative points, That is, points as per the automated system will remain for your response and will not be reduced if you have given an incorrect prediction. A few questions may be such that you could check out the details of what newspapers or other sources are saying, let's say about the pitch or the weather, for example, to help you make an accurate prediction.
