    Looks like you're easily through to the next round SP, wouldn't be surprised if you end up the last CW team remaining in the cup.

    Match orders locked in for the cup match starting in a few minutes. Badley drafted into the starting XI in place of Begg, relieving allrounder Berry of bowling duties. Since it's a flat pitch I figured 7 batsmen should be enough, and Berry's bowling has been slaughtered in previous matches on flat pitches. Badley's still very much an unproven bowler though, his stats to date are rubbish.

    Top four batsmen alternating between aggressive and v. aggressive orders, with Gillete being promoted to no. 5, set to normal to hopefully act as an anchor if we lose early wickets. Rocastle and Barrett to follow, then the bowlers. Two bowlers set to v. defensive, hopefully to keep them under 300 if we bowl first. Gillespie set to attacking as usual though. Going to bat first if we win the toss, though I don't mind either way as I feel we have a better chance chasing for some reason.

    Going to be very tough though, they've got a very good top order, and one very good bowler - the rest are fairly average. They're likely to have much better fitness than me as well, which seems to have a big effect on match ratings. Won't mind terribly if we lose as I'd made a conscious decision to concentrate on league rather than cup, but a win would be nice.

    EDIT: Lost the toss and bowling first.

    And that's the end of the match. Scaly Piscine CC won by 7 wickets.

    Packer made 105 off 100 balls. Wickets shared around fairly evenly between the usual 4.

    hmm, looks like itll at least be respectable, i've pegged them back to 181-1 after 35 but will still lose comfortably, my spinner has bowled 6-0-17-0

    We're getting slaughtered as expected. 79-0 after ten overs and one of their guys has a 50 already. Oddy's bowling absolute tripe and Gillespie's having a shocker, end of his spell now. Double century from Cuss to win it from here.

    Yeah, okay. I knew I was going to lose this match, but I was kind of hoping my bowlers could at least concede less than 500 or so. Take a wicket already!

    EDIT: Woohoo, I've pulled the run rate down from 8.26 to a mere 7.00... We suck.

    Incredibly pathetic bowling performance, 370-4, with three of those wickets coming in the last two overs. I'm curious to see what my opponent's top order rating will be though, I'd be surprised if it isn't at least quality. Not entirely without precedent though - I played a match on a flat pitch early last season in which the opposition scored 366-3, and I ended up losing by 18 runs with 348-3. Meh, as I said, it's double-century time for Cuss or we lose.

    lost my match but played ok, got my best ratings so far, gradual improvement, my fielding improved as well which was pleasing as it was something i was looking at.
