Cricket Bat World Cup 2010
« on: October 04, 2010, 03:24:08 PM »

Since we are all a little sad at the end of the UK season I thought it might be fun and informative to have a random Cricket bat WC event. I've put some big brands and also some forum sponsors in a 32 bat draw and we will vote on one contest per day with the winner going through to the next round until we have the semi finals which will be 3 day voting period and the final which will be a 5 day voting period.

You are only allowed to vote once per match, and only post the brand name you would like to win, all other posts will be deleted and you will have to buy Fattus Cattus his daily cakes as a fine.

The full draw is as follows,

1, Gray Nicolls
v                        Gray Nicolls,
2, Vantage,
                          v                       Gray Nicolls
3, Piri Piri

                                                   v                    Redback
5, Slazenger
v                        SS,
6, SS,
                          v                        Redback
7, Malik
v                        Redback,
8, Redback,
                                                                        v             Redback

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.

No problem, not after cast iron proof of anything.

The round will go on until the following day at midnight, so roughly 30 hours voting on each round.
