    I think my unbeaten run is going to come to an end today. Had the misfortune of being made to bowl first on a flat track, and they're currently 172-2 after 26, with their two best batsmen in. TBH I'll be pretty happy to 'restrict' them to 320 or so, and hope that my top order continue their good form.

    EDIT: Good job lads, only 367 to win!

    EDIT: My openers are making an impressive attempt chasing a near-impossible target. 119-0 after 16 overs, RR of 7.44, RRR of 7.29. Cuss continuing his incredible run with 69* (52) so far.

    I have no decent bowlers in my side, i bat down to 9 with specialist batsmen. 10 and 11 are handy bowlers but the rest of the bowling gets done by part timers.

    348-3 chasing 366, very frustrating. Probably could have managed a win if Cuss hadn't got out on 98. His average has now been shot down to 189.33. Still, a few decent knocks from Cuss (98 off 87), Berry (95* off 79), Barrett (71* off 58) and Bridge (53 off 65).
    Can't really blame the batsmen for this loss; our bowlers were rubbish, even taking into account the flat track. Dropped to #3 with the top three each on four wins and one loss.

    Hoggy, I'm up for a friendly if you like, my team's Asterix XI.

    His average has taken another tumble today, after managing just 150 (126) against Hoggy's team in a friendly. Only 179.5 now! Berry managed 95 (114) and now averages 137.33. Gillespie's 63* (46) takes his average to 50.67, and Barrett has scored 188 runs without being dismissed. I sent Canoville up the order as a pinch-hitter but he was run out for a duck.

    I had most of my batsmen set to 'aggressive' or 'v. aggressive' and luckily got away with it on a good pitch, ended up with 338-3 after being sent in. He's started well though (67-0 after 11) and has some good batsmen so I think it will be close.

    Nope. The players are supposed to be able to adapt to the match situation though, but how well they do this depends on their experience. I stupidly put most of my bowlers on 'aggressive'/'v. aggressive' (it's the WACA!) so they will give away plenty of runs anyway. I also forgot to let my second-best bowler have a bowl.

    You need 180 off the last 20 overs with 8 wickets in hand... hopefully my bowlers can defend that...
