    Match time again, trying to keep my spot on top of the league after winning 3 from 3 so far. Playing against probably the strongest opposition I will encounter in the league, as they've won 6 from 7 so far, including 2 from 3 in the league matches.

    Won the toss at home and sent them in to bat on a green deck. For some reason they decided to open the batting with two guys who averaged zero, and, true to form, they both got out for ducks to Berry (the captain). Their no. 3 (a proper batsman, this time) was run out, leaving them 9/3. They managed a decent comeback, but lost two quick wickets to be 57/5. Their no. 4 led a steady recovery, before falling for 52. They have just started accelerating again with a brief barrage of boundaries, and are currently 159/6 in the 39th over. At this rate they're probably looking for 220-230, but hopefully a couple of wickets sometime soon will keep their score down.

    All of my bowlers have bowled pretty well thus far:

    Gillespie: 0-20 (5)
    Berry: 3-33 (7)
    Owen: 2-39 (9)
    Oddy: 0-26 (10)
    Booth: 0-28 (8)

    Thankfully the latter eventuated. Picked up two wickets in two balls when they were 182/8, and eventually bowled them out for 198 in 48.1 overs. Final bowling figures:

    Gillespie: 2-37 (9.1)
    Berry: 4-40 (9)
    Owen: 2-44 (10)
    Oddy: 0-26 (10)
    Booth: 0-36 (10)

    Will be very annoyed if my batsmen can't chase that.

    Nice one Adam

    I won by ten wickets - bowling the opposition out for 50. Dwight Tuck stands with 20 wickets this season @ 8.65...bowled 7-4-5-4 today. I just need to teach my lower order to bat a bit...

    Isn't that the second time you've done that now? It took just three balls for my hopes of matching that feat to disappear:

    0.3 W Byles to Bridge
    that hit the wickets so hard the stumps went for four! out!


    Great...

    Correct. Won the cup game by ten wickets as well.

    Hoping that the introduction of Quincy Fernandes to the team might help the fragile lower order (he's made 39* and 3* so far in his career, yet preferred Theo Donovan because of side skills...not clever)

    Cuss 13 (8 balls) <--- nice start!

    I'm depending a lot on him, but I don't know how long he can maintain his 187.5 average... I've only had to go past no. 5 once so far, so I don't really know how my tail will do. My guess is that they won't do well at all, so hopefully they won't be called into action.

    Cruised home by nine wickets, with nearly 13 overs to spare in the end. Cuss finished 95* (105) (his fourth score of 90+) to boost his average to a more respectable 235. Berry, the captain, hit 91* (124) in addition to his 4-40, to collect his second MotM award.

    I had it set on 'go for it' though, so my players will probably feel the effects next week. In fact the fitness level has dropped from 'fair' to 'fatigued', though morale is now 'over the moon'. Wondering whether I should set it to 'take it easy' next week in order to get the fitness level back up, though I guess I could drop the training intensity a bit instead.

    Notable performers thus far:

    Sol Cuss: 470 runs @ 235.00, SR 91.26, HS 160 (2x100, 2x50)
    Reon Berry*: 222 runs @ 111.00, SR 77.35, HS 91* (2x50) and 11 wickets @ 18.73, SR 19.09, ER 5.89, BB 5-68
    Sterling Gillespie: 66 runs @ 33.00, SR 76.74, HS 45 and 15 wickets @ 9.47, SR 13.20, ER 4.30, BB 8-30

    These three seem to do most of the work, will need others to step up eventually.

    I won by 10 wickets today. Hamshaw and Wheat put on 230 in 26 overs. Awesome stuff...

    When the correct the net run rate stuff is put the tables hopefully I'll be second, if not, I'm third. I'm not sure to stop the top side though. They are blazing away at the moment with some quite ridiculous bowling at the moment..
