    Where've you all gone?!

    Sorry Trev -- I didn't get the chance to look at your match. I only just had the time to set my match orders for the weekend, to be honest.

    Could anyone help me with my match orders? I want to TIE against the side I'm playing tomorrow - their ratings are:

    riddings

    Top Order: abysmal
    Middle Order: woeful
    Lower Order: worthless
    Seam Bowling: woeful
    Spin Bowling: abysmal
    Fielding: woeful

    My ratings on PAN are as follows:

    The Heath CC

    Top Order: feeble
    Middle Order: woeful
    Lower Order: abysmal
    Seam Bowling: feeble
    Spin Bowling: woeful
    Fielding: woeful

    Will I be able to get away with playing TIE against riddings and still win the game do you think? Or should I stick with PAN?

    I reckon you'll be safe, barring random effects. TIE seems to give you about a half-level drop in each rating, and you'd still be ahead.

    Make sure you check to see your opponent's team make-up -- for example, if he's got one good seamer and three rubbish ones (as opposed to four not-too-bad ones), there's a chance that that seamer might open and destroy your top order.

    You had me worried for a second -- I'm playing spit_fire tomorrow, the bloke who does the Pimms Tent.

    Haha, I don't think I'm quite in your league yet, so you don't have to worry about me for now!

    Thanks for your advice - they do have one good seamer but my batting lineup goes pretty deep so I think I'll risk it. Worst case scenario - if I lose, then I won't TIE again and should manage to win every other game in my league this season.

    A win today, by 8 wickets, but a little dissappointing, i let them score 181 runs. Savage was gun though, taking 6-fer 20 odd. Might have to set bowlers on aggresive next time around.

    Slightly better game today, in some respects. Bowlers were greatly ineffective, conceding 330 runs for 1 wicket. We did manage to get past 200, though. Better than being bowled out for 23.

    Good win for the Ponies today, bouncing back from last week

    Kaos Warrios 205 (49.0)
    Canning 3/31 (10), Fernando 3/62 (10), Erasmus 2/47 (9)

    Magical Ponies 5/206 (45.1)
    Tedstone 84* (101), Griffin 66 (96), Terry 30* (23)

    Tedstone's highest score, while it was good to see Griffin in the runs when we needed them. Canning only made 9, but Terry made sure that we didn't collapse like they did (they lost 5/5 at the end).

    Magical Ponies Kaos Warriors
    Top Order: mediocre strong
    Middle Order: strong competent
    Lower Order: abysmal worthless
    Seam Bowling: quality strong
    Spin Bowling: proficient respectable
    Fielding: woeful feeble
    MOTM: Tedstone
