In deference to the information provided by the Sri Lankan tourist board, I
present to you the RSC all new tipping competition (England v Sri Lanka).
All you have to do is predict what will happen during each session of the
test match, and the highest score at the end of the series wins a prize. I
don't respond to any of their posts for a week.
Each occurrence in a session has a point value. Your point value can total
no more than 8. Pick what you think is most likely to happen !

A - the ground is flooded to invisibility after hours of torrential rain
