Talk about leading the team by example, recently promoted captain, myself, got Man of the Match honours from a stellar display against the hapless NSW. Anyway Sudeep covered that match in depth, so no need to post a match report here. However I believe Sudeep needs to get back in touch with the team, constantly calling poor Scott Meuleman - Fuelman. I understand Scotty is getting rather upset about it, given his prior history of Arson. Apart from that Popat's 68 was a great lower order innings, I believe the batting tips I gave him the night before really helped him out, I wish him all the best for his batting, and have offered to be his personal batting coach. He mumbled something in Hindi and walked off. I think I am onto a winner there.
Anyway, I apologise about the lack of entries recently, however after we caught the early flight home, I found myself the next morning in the East Perth lockup, where dear Mr Popat was bailing me out. God knows how I ended up there, Popat seems to think I was wandering the streets all night in search of a flight attendant? Bah, tis all just rumours. The next morning I had to face a team inquiry about the Balcony incident, however it was all a misunderstanding, well, I never meant to do it on purpose... I swear!
Only a short entry now, Must get back to my Penthouse Suite @ the Hyatt and do some relaxing prior to the first 1Der against Tasmania.
Retravision Player Points (Game vs NSW - FC)

5 Points - Adam Gilchrist, Dave Watt
4 Points - Michael Hussey, Peter Worthington

Popat catches up to his arch rival, Brad Hogg, should be a interesting battle. Ronchi gets his first point for 7 catches in the match.
Until next time.
