Friends,

Look at the results and think...
- All three ODI's are won by runs.
- Toss-winning captain chose to bat first.
- Toss-winning team won the match.
- All the innings totals were above 200

And when we come to margins...well..look what we have

First ODI 22 runs
Second ODI 22 + 9 = 31 runs
Third ODI 31 + 9 = 40 runs.

Fourth ODI 40 + 9 = 49 runs.

One might conclude that, watching the toss result would
suffice....;)

PS: I am not a big stat-maniac and I will be following the
whole match. So do you, I suggest.
Good luck Bangladesh.:flag:

i hope this formula holds for remainder of the series only if bashar wins the toss.

Yes this formula would be good for when Bashar wins and bats.

yes formula contains 9 again, this time 5th matchs result comes early in 4th match...

:embaressed:

22=1st ODI
31=2nd ODI
40=3rd ODI
49=4th ODI
58=5th ODI

but 4th ODI's result is 58... so 5th ODI result will be 49 runs :D
