Win Tickets for England v New Zealand at The Ageas Bowl!
Mar 6 2013
South Coast cricket fans are being offered the chance to win a pair of tickets to England’s NatWest Series One Day International against New Zealand at The Ageas Bowl simply by giving their opinions on the two sides’ current Test Series!
During every day of the ongoing three-match series in New Zealand, fans will be asked to make three predictions relating to the following day’s play via the Hampshire Cricket (facebook.com/HampshireCricket) or Ageas Bowl (facebook.com/TheAgeasBowl) Facebook pages. The winner will simply be the person who gives the most correct predictions.
Each day, the new questions will be posted below and fans will have until the SCHEDULED start of play THAT EVENING to enter their guess.
The winner will be given two general admission tickets to England v New Zealand at The Ageas Bowl on Sunday 2 June 2013.
Day three: New Zealand v England (First Test - University Oval, Dunedin)
Day two brought some real surprises in New Zealand as England were bowled out for just 167 before the hosts registered 131 without loss. That means New Zealand start day three 35 runs behind with 10 wickets remaining and debutant, Hamish Rutherford sitting pretty on 77 not out. So, our questions for day three are:
1. How many runs will Rutherford finish on ON DAY THREE?
2. Who will take England's first wicket ON DAY THREE?
b. Jimmy Anderson
c. Steven Finn
d. Stuart Broad
e. Monty Panesar
f. A part-timer (Trott / Root / Pietersen etc)
3. What total will New Zealand have reached by the end of play?
a. 131 - 250
b. 251 - 350
c. 351 - 450
Entry is free and simply requires a Facebook account (sign up here). You have until 9pm TONIGHT (Thursday 7 March) to enter; all votes cast after this point won’t be counted. A tally of those who have correctly guessed each prediction will be recorded and the winner of the competition announced after the third and final Test of the Series has finished. Entrants may vote on as many questions as they wish but only one vote per entrant, per question will be accepted. In the case of multiple entries from a single entrant for a single question, all votes from that entrant will be discounted. Should two or more entrants make the same number of correct predictions and, in so doing, win the competition, one outright winner will be chosen by virtue of a lucky dip undertaken by staff at The Ageas Bowl. The judges’ decision is final. Entry into the competition constitutes an acceptance of the above terms and conditions.
