    Cn you think of a formula for bowling? It needs to result in similar points as Batting.

    ------------------

    How about number of wickets times 5? 10 wickets would be the equivelant of averaging 50. Economy of 2 is the eqievalant of a strike rat of 200 3 = 150, 4 = 100, 5 = 75, 6 = 50, 7 = 25, 8 or above = 0. So if you get 8 wickets at 5 an over you get 40 x 7.5. Resulting in 300 points.

    Understand :p

    ------------------

    I say we start the auction tomorrow. If you agree to my formulas then I'll create a new thread with detailed rules.

    Gonna be a little complicated but I guess it will work.

    So who's playing. Me, CoverDrive, Dictator, Binning, Afridi. Anyone else?

    ------------------

    What do people think the budget cap should be?

    Depends what's the minimum amount among the participants.

    Best to keep bowling formula simple as well. How about:

    5 wickets at average of 25;

    5 (wickets) * y * 25 (average) * x

    y=2
    x=2

    5 * 2 * 25 * 2 = 500 points.

    So that it results in 500 points; to keep it same as batting.

    Right now you have 12 mil, I understand you got lots of money gone into betting and Cover has 18 mil

    ------------------

    True! Let's go with real life? 9 MIL?

    What about economy?
     
  12. CoverDrive

    Screw economy. This will turn into a math exam then.

    ^ I won't mind making some money transfers if you guys are OK with that !

    I liked my formula. Wickets times 5. Have Economy bands. I.e. 2 is x 5, 3 is x 7.5 etc...you can round the economy.

    ------------------

    That's wrong anyway because the lower the average the better the bowling.

    That's why I think we need bands. But do it with Economy instead of Averages.

    Bands? What?
     
  18. Cabinet96

    Another slight problem is that the squads haven't been announced yet, but if we were to have enough time we would have to start the auction tomorrow. So what I was thinking was that we just do the big names that are certain to play (baring injuries) first before the squads are announced. I.e. Clarke, Dohni, Dilshan etc...

    good idea, we are gonna need some time to get this thing going !

    For an economy of 2 you multiply the wickets by 20, for 3 by 15, 4 by 10, 5 by 7.5, 6 by 5, 7 by 2.5, 8 and above 0. We round up the final economy to see what band it lies within.

    ------------------

    I think we'll be able to start the auction in about 16 hours.
