    90 off the last 11 needed, or 8 wickets for me. Horne and Dillon usually clean up in the last 10.

    Slightly horrible innings from Westhead.

    Meh, Horne misses out on a five-fer, Scaly Piscine CC win by 53 runs.

    College Dropouts ended up losing 9 for 42 after my lot lost 6 for 47.


    Ratings were as expected:

    Scaly Piscine CC College Dropouts
    Top Order: superb quality
    Middle Order: competent mediocre
    Lower Order: woeful abysmal
    Seam Bowling: proficient proficient
    Spin Bowling: strong respectable
    Fielding: competent feeble


    Horne ended up with MOTM with 4-38, as opposed to Dillon's 113 off 119 and 3-28.

    Asterix 132-6 - thankfully Lewis doesn't get to face good batsmen, as Wynand appears to have hit the stamina wall and Monk can't score. Should get them out for 200 now.

    Don't think Wynand's hit a stamina wall, he's got competent stamina which is more than enough for OD matches. I've got batsmen down to no. 10 (no. 11 is feeble), only problem is most of them are only competent or respectable so they get destroyed by halfway decent bowling. Wasn't expecting two wonderful batsmen to get out for 1 and 27 respectively though. I would be confident defending 200 on this pitch if I had Louis, but without him none of my bowlers can really take wickets.

    I needed some kind of explanation for Lewis to make 4-1-8-0. Mind, he's getting slogged about royally now, ten off the last overs and you're 223-8. Luckily Harris is going to bowl to Nahal now.

    Edit: And Louis couldn't have taken all ten, could he?

    Edit 2: Maiden wicket over from Harris

    He's come close, took the first eight wickets against 3wide before someone else stole the last two. I set Watkins to attacking bowling today (instead of v. def which I usually set him to), maybe he'll pick up a few. 231 isn't enough though, considering who my other opening bowler is.
