Champions League T20 Predictions - How Did You Do?
Ahead of the Champions League T20, we made our own predictions and invited you to do the same. We can now reveal the winners.
First, Cricket World's Alastair Symondson and John Pennington managed to predict three of the four semi-finalists during their pre-tournament Mr Predictor show.
Al went for Chennai Super Kings to win (which they did) and picked Hobart Hurricanes (semi-finalists) as an outside bet while JP opted for finalists Kolkata Knight Riders and Lahore Lions (who very nearly made it).
Then, we opened up our prediction game, inviting Cricket World visitors to predict a number of areas including leading batsman, leading bowler, quickest half-century and most economical bowler:
Most Runs: Suresh Raina (Chennai Super Kings)
Most Wickets: Sunil Narine (Kolkata Knight Riders)
Most Fours: Robin Uthappa (Kolkata)
Most Sixes: Suresh Raina (Chennai)
Most Catches: Wahab Riaz (Lahore Lions)
Highest Individual Score: Jonathan Carter (Barbados Tridents)
Best Bowling Figures: Pawan Negi (Chennai)
Fastest 50: Andre Russell (Kolkata)
Most Economical Bowler: Dilshan Munaweera (Southern Express)
Overall Winner: Chennai
The contest was close and in the end no fewer than 11 of you managed to score 90 points - that's equivalent to getting the overall winner correct and two of the other categories, which we think is mighty impressive.
The first of these players to make their prediction was the winner, so congratulations to K Umapathy, who is the winner, with Newton Blue and Kannan Niranjan as runners-up.
Your prizes will be in the post soon!
