    I'm going to be playing Sky Blues this Sunday - they're old league-mates of mine (just pipping me to the IV.26 title the season before I won it), and about to promote to I.1 in some style.

    They're managed by a fellow 'inho - Malcinho. We get around! Anyway, it should be a good match - he's got two superstar players (BTR>160k), but his squad depth isn't brilliant. I can't check right now, but I think it's something like this:

    Top 7 BTRs for Sky Blues: 160k, 160k, 28k, 19k, 19k, 18k, 18k
    Top 7 BTRs for Withington: 57k, 45k, 39k, 33k, 32k, 25k, 19k

    Of course, BTR is by no means everything. I'm going for a Green pitch and hoping that his superstar bowlers (one's spinner, the other fast - one of them's actually an all-rounder) don't clean me up.

    We had some pretty close games a few seasons ago, before his training regime came together, and this should give me some indication of how I'm progressing.

    I'm pretty sure I'll lose, but I'm hoping it won't be a mauling.

    Haha, coincidentally enough, I was looking at their team yesterday (was looking at Graham Apted) and I noted the presence of another 'inho, and the name Sky Blues also sounded familiar. He gets pretty damn good ratings, though they are helped greatly by his two guns. I think you'll be able to get him out fairly cheaply - just gotta hope his gun bat doesn't score big whilst the bits-and-pieces players hang around. And, of course, that Apted doesn't take 7-for or something.

    I'm playing I.1 side Aristo Aristocrats (with Fred Lucas) on Sunday. I'll lose, it just depends on whether he plays a full-strength lineup and gets me all out for 50 or not. Haha, it'll go well with last weeks Newcastle Knights, on an I.1 roll here tbh.

    Alright i got a question to the guys in leagues outside Australia and England. Having a look around it seems that Div II in New Zealand, West Indies, Pakistan and India are fairly similar to Sri Lanka. So i was wondering what you guys think the standard is required to make Div II and secondly be competitive.

    Im in Div III Sri Lanka and have come 2nd two seasons in a row, this season i came equal 1st. These are my current ratings:

    Top Order: Respectable
    Middle Order: Competent
    Lower Order: Abysmal
    Seam Bowling: Mediorce-Competent
    Spin Bowling: Mediorce-Competent
    Fielding: Woeful

    Well the first thing i have to do is finish 1st, the team came 1st, Toolmanteam, is playing White Knights, with the loser playing in my league. There no other teams that come close to us really:

    Code:
                  Toolmanteam White Kinghts
    Top Order:    Strong      Strong
    Middle Order: Woeful      Woeful
    Lower Order:  Abysmal     Woeful
    Seam Bowling: Competent   Respectable
    Spin Bowling: Remarkable  Mediorce
    Fielding:     Woeful      Feeble
    I expect Toolmanteam to win, cus of their spinner Arjuna Rodrigo (44k BT), but Knights have SL NT batsmen Aviksha Malik (360k BT), his scary. But Knights don't have anyone in their team apart from Malik. I beat Toolmanteam in our last game on TIE and having a look at Knights fixtures, similar sides to mine have beat them. So im slightly confident i can beat both of them next season. Both rely on a couple players.

    But the real question i like to know is what standard is required to be competitve in Div II outside Australia and England. I've played VIpers (Pakistan Div II) a couple times and both matches have been close, so if their a guide i shouldn't be that far, Alex came 5th this season though. So how good go you think i need to be to beat either of those teams and be competitve in Div II.

    I see my real weakness as my bowling attack (Superb/Mediorce, Strong/Feeble, Strong/Woeful, Proficient/Feeble and Respectable/Feeble) So considering buying in a Strong fast bowler to replace my Respectable fast bowler. If im still two seasons away, then im probably better off saving money for Superb fast bowler.

    V.Quick question for Scaly if you're about. If an All-rounder has BTR of 9,526, and he's Med Stam, Resp/Woe bat, Resp/Resp Bowl, Abs Field, how far up the levels is he? The wage is £668, but I'm presuming that's next to useless, as he'll have been trained all season?

    Plus, A, how much would you say a fair price would be for such a beast? And B, if A =>£600K (About the size of my transfer Kitty) Would anybody be interested in bidding on Bennett today if I were to list him? 19yo, Resp Stam, Prof/Med Bat, no more than a couple of weeks from Strong?

    Later, Trev

    How old is he, Trev?

    Unless he's 17, I'd say that 600k would be too much for a player like that. I've not really been watching the market that much, so I may be wrong, but it seems too much for a player with fairly ordinary secondaries, and one who isn't even proficient yet. By the way, do you know he's been receiving training? Cause if he had been trained all season (assuming he was getting a batting and a bowling net), you'd probably expect someone with a wage of 688 to be proficient in at least one of the skills. That said, Scaly will probably come in and disprove everything I've just said, so I wouldn't take my word to heart.

    You're reading my mind young Andy! Yes he's 17, and yes I'm figuring that if he's been trained then presumably he's close to Prof in one or other discipline - Hopefully Bowling. TBH the batting would just be a bonus, I really need to do something about my lamentable bowling attack, as Sunday's match demonstrated. Having said that, it's a good job that he has batting potential if I'm going to have to sell Bennett to finance the deal.

    Had a £330K bid on a 17YO Dest Resp/Comp RM overnight, but the auction ended at two o'clock in the morning our time, and some swine snuck in after I'd gone to bed, and got him with one more bid! I know that the training time is compromised buying a 17yo at this stage of the season, but I was hoping that might be a factor which would drive the prices down. Plus, even if I get a bottom of the range Resp now, by the time they turn 18 they'll be Strong, Qual by 20, and could go on to be special, for a relatively small amount of cash.

    BTW, haven't been in the office much this week, so haven't had a chance to congratulate you for Sunday. Well deserved win, but felt a little bit hard done by, A, as I felt I had the edge on the ratings, and B, as it was one of those games where the score doesn't really tell the full story. An eight wicket margin tends to suggest I was thrashed, whereas I thought we bottled you up quite effectively, and we might have had a chance had I possessed someone better than Edworthy to throw at youfor the death overs. But Canning was the difference between the sides, so well done.

    Oh and Adam, have you seen an old friend is on the transfer market? Sterling Gillespie. Bit rich for me at £1.5M, but he's getting to the age whereby you could ramp up his secondaries and make him a tidy player - Though probably not at your level.

    BTR range of 8500-14000, so he's very low.
