  1. :two_thumbs_up:
    Bear in mind that in the past, due to the first match being delayed due to rain etc, there have been cases where the substitution window didn't open as the next match started before the first officially ended.
  2. So on the 21st will I be able to bring in India & Pak players in immediately after Ireland vs Holland game? :hmmm:
    As long as there is a minimum 10 minute gap between the end of first game and the start of next, you should have a window to make subs.
  3. not saying there are not cases of criminals being politicians but in a country like India where the judicial system is weak you literally need to take it by a case by case basis.
    True. Look at the following link: http://adrindia.org/sites/default/files/Preliminary%20Candidate%20Report%20for%20Lok%20Sabha%20(INC%20BJP).pdf Nicely compiled. Especially the last column about serious IPC violations is interesting. A few murder cases, but a few frivolous ones too (ipc-294.. which used to be serious during the british times. Most of these IPC's were created after the 1857 movement around 1860) They've analysed 62 out of the 107 declared candidates of BJP, and 126 out of 194 delcared candidates for INC. So these percentages are in no way comprehensive.
  4. BJP gaining. Is it Modi wave or anti-Congress tsunami? Read more at: http://www.firstpost.com/politics/bjp-gaining-is-it-modi-wave-or-anti-congress-tsunami-1437789.html?utm_source=ref_article interesting point :popcorn:
    There is of course a strong anti-congress sentiment, that was fuelled initially by the scams, CAG, IAC, etc. If Modi wasn't heading the BJP, I believe AAP would have been the major beneficiary of this anti-congress sentiment in the coming LS elections. Regarding a Modi wave: I would say that the country has been divided into two. People who are being swept by, or are riding the Modi wave, and others who are creating Dams to contain the wave. Given Modi's reputation and his lack of acceptance among the 15-20% of India's Muslims, the BJP would find crossing 272 very difficult irrespective of a wave, which wasn't the case with Congress in 2009.
  5. Thats a big loss. I think it is wise to buy players before they start scoring so that only 30 points are cost.
    I don't think you understand. You will still lose only 30 points. Let me explain. My team before substitution: Player a: 100 points Player b: 50 points Player c: 50 points Total: 200 points Some Player d not in my team has 200 points. Now, say I want to substitute Player a for Player d. My team after substitution: Player d: 200 points Player b: 50 points Player c: 50 points Substitution Adjustments: -130 (100 - 200 - 30) Total: 170 points So, even though the substitution adjustment is of -130, I only lost 30 points (down to 170 from 200).
  6. Me too' date=' this is my second SS but i haven't understood the substitution rules properly.So i might end low in the table .[/quote'] It's quite simple really. You lose 30 points per substitution (for the T20 WC superselector). If before substitution, you have 1500 points, after substitution of 10 players you will have 1500 - 300 = 1200 points. What is confusing for people at times is the "Substitution Adjustments" row that is shown at the bottom. That is to make sure that the existing points of the player you are substituting in are not included in your tally as it will not be fair. For example, if I substitute a player who has got 5 points so far in the tournament with a player who has got 500 points in the tournament so far, it is unfair for me to get the 500 existing points for the new player. ICF SuperSelector only awards you for what what your selections do *after* you've selected them, not what they've done so far. So, you will find a substitution adjustment of (5 - 500 - 30) = -525 points Unlimited.
  7. When' date=' your entire party's campaign is based on complains. AAP is just going all over India complaining about every single thing. [b']It's not like they are asking for votes for their so called great work done in Delhi. Only complains, and insecurity about their performance in Delhi.
    That's the key. I was a big-time supporter when they came onto the scene. My sister has been involved with them since the early IAC days. Now both of us are disillusioned with them as are most of our friends, due to their childish behaviour (i.e. whining and quitting). Their current approach makes it seem like their main goal from the beginning was the Lok Sabha elections and they had no love for making things better in Delhi.
  8. Don't think the Aussie series scores have been updated properly Mitch got 7 fer Davie scored a 100 as well Steyno has got 5 wickets in 2 innings so far
    Cricinfo had changed the scoreboard format so there were some issues. Things should be fixed now. Please let me know in case you still see any weirdness.
  9. This one is not corrected yet. Clint McKay Australia bowler -13.2 Australia vs. England (1st ODI) Points: 0 Bowling: 10.0-0-44-3 @4.40 (0nb, 1w) Fielding: 0 c, 0 st, 0 runouts Australia vs. England (2nd ODI) Points: -13.16 Bowling: 8.0-0-50-0 @6.25 (0nb, 3w) Fielding: 0 c, 0 st, 0 runouts
