Rules page

Welcome to Rules for the Prediction Zone! We will be keeping track of our individual game-to-game predictions for tournaments like The Hundred, IPL, and the upcoming T20 World Cups! The scores, rankings, statistics will all be kept track of as well.

Subscription

Subscription for the pool is easy. All you have to do is think of a login name and a valid email address. If you lost your password, you can generate a new one.

Predicting the matches

Predict the end score of all the matches in the tournament/competition. You have until 15 minutes before the start of a match to add or change your prediction.
The server time is used. No discussion about that, so be on time if you want to fill in your scores.

As you may have noticed the matches in the next stages are not yet filled at the beginning of the tournament. Once the teams are through to the next round, I will add them. These games can also be changed until 15 minutes before the game starts. Or, if you’re feeling lucky, you can predict them now.

The bonus questions

You can earn extra points during the tournament with the bonus questions. These questions must be answered before a given date and time. Each questions shows the points you can earn.

The scoring

You get points for predicting the correct winner of the match or prediction of a draw.

Scoring points
Correct Prediction  3 Points
Incorrect Prediction  0 Points
Bonus Questions May change depending on the question
Run Difference* TBD
Super Over* TBD

*In the future, Run Difference and Super Over may be implemented.

Run Difference may consist of predicting the exact amount of runs scored by each team and awarding participants based on a criteria.

Super Over

Each player will have one Super Over (golden ball icon). If you place this ball next to a match the score for that match is multiplied by a pre-determined bonus number. You may place this icon next to every match and you can change your mind and move the golden ball, as long this match is still changeable. The Super Over is activated after the prediction for the match is locked. Once activated it cannot be moved anymore.

If you want to view the ranking, then go to the ranking page and pick the correct league. If you’re logged in, then the league for which you subscribed, is automatically picked.

Same ranking?

When multiple players have the exact same amount of points, then the following sorting rules are applied on the ranking (most important one at the top):

  1. amount of total scores;
  2. amount of correct bonus questions.
