    Hmm, seems he's left the recently-acquired exquisite bat out of the lineup (though he's definitely been online since the purchase). Can only assume it's either a PFL issue (can't see what the PFL is now obviously) or a match order stuff up.

    Pretty boring stuff so far, got their best batsman out (their best batsman in the starting XI, anyway) but not much else happening.

    Asterix XI won the toss and elected to field.
    Pitch: Dusty

    End of Over 10: 18-1, runrate=1.80
    Watkins 5-1-7-1
    Swanepoel* 7 (35 balls)
    Barnes 1 (4 balls)
    Last Wicket: Sturgess c. Ashton b. Watkins 8 (FOW: 16/1)

    Edit: 19-3 now.

    Hmm, Harewood's first over: W . 1 6 . 4

    Certainly lives up to the 'destructive' tag, little wonder I don't trust him with the new ball anymore.

    Comfy run chase at more than 6.5 an over, marred only slightly by two late wickets. But but! got my first proficient batting rating ever (largely thanks to an order shuffle), and (I think) my first PAN respectable seam rating. Hup!

    Thirteenamo Kiev 269-10 (50.0ov) Hinds 69, Oleary 4-55
    Beard XI 270-2 (41.3ov) Platt 124, Bromby 102

    Code:
    		Beard XI	Thirteenamo Kiev
    Top Order:	proficient	feeble
    Middle Order:	feeble		feeble
    Lower Order:	worthless	worthless
    Seam Bowling:	respectable	feeble
    Spin Bowling:	feeble		useless
    Fielding:	woeful		woeful

    Bowled them out for 55. Watkins 1-7, Downer 1-13, Harewood 3-29, Whitehorne 4-1 (Mattis DNB).

    Thinking of selling Mattis, he's only been required bowled in three matches out of eight so far, so it might be worth developing a batsman instead, which is something I do need.

    Made it home by the skin of my bum cheeks, largely thanks to a bit of unbattrickesque wagging from the tail.

    Rehtakul Veets CC&FC 209 A/O (46.4): Bailey 104, Byrne 40, McCarthy 38, Bewers 7/36 (8.4), Cash 2/47, Carlton 1/37
    Cymru Gurgitaters 210/6 (40.5): Greening 83 (64), Staveley 77* (71), Bewers 4* (23)

    Was 159/5 at one stage, then 193/6, so quite relieved with the win.

    Rehtakul Veets CC&FC Cymru Gurgitaters
    Top Order:
    Strong quality
    Middle Order: respectable respectable
    Lower Order: abysmal abysmal
    Seam Bowling: proficient strong
    Spin Bowling: superb proficient
    Fielding: feeble feeble
    MOTM: Bewers

    Now getting regular Strong for seam on Pan, and my first ever Qual Top order, without Staveley, Greening and Noon all at the top. In a bit of a quandary about what to do in my Cup game on Sunday. Oppo's ratings are Wond/Sup/Abs - Wond/Sup/Med. With the gun three at the top of the order, mine will be something like Wond/(Med/Comp)/Abs - Strong/Prof/Feeb. What I had intended doing was to hope that Cash and Patel on V.Def could bung up their best bowlers for a while, with Noon, greening and Staveley 3, 4 and 5 to launch a counter attack from the middle order. That would give me ratings along the lines of (Resp/Prof)/Strong/Abs - Strong/Prof/Feeb. Cricket-wise that would make more sense to me, but BT-wise I'm not sure it does, as at least with the guns up the order I can equal his Seam and trump his Spin?

    Any thoughts? Tar, Trev

    The Heath CC: 292/6 (50) Grant 132, Gibson 58*, Sutton 52
    Riddings: 123/10 (32.2) Talbot 3/11, Swift 2/18

    Pretty easy win in the end, but I'm not that happy with the performance. I felt that we should have easily made 300 against a pretty awful bowling attack, and they were going along nicely at 82/1 and 105/2 before a traditional BT collapse set in.

    I still haven't really settled on my best lineup yet, but the positives from this match were Grant's second century of the season, and Gibson's unbeaten half-century at more than a run a ball on debut. Talbot did well with the ball as well after hitting a useful cameo of 21 from 12 balls. Still improvements to be made, but that's 4 wins out of 4 and I'm firmly at the top of my league

    All over, Ashton just a shot away from an unlikely half-century.


    And that's the end of the match. Asterix XI won by 10 wickets.
    Doobie Bombers 55-10
    Asterix XI 56-0

    End of Over 11: 56-0, runrate=5.09
    Pietersen 5-0-40-0
    Ashton* 47 (39 balls)
    Cuss 9 (23 balls)

    Liking my ratings, had to double check that I had in fact TIE'd. Shame about the fielding.
    Code:

    My first innings just finished, posted 309/3, mostly off the back of a Maiden century for my young batsman Hislop which I'm pleased with. Half centuries for Gillespie who was moved up to open again and my young wicketkeeper Gittens, both coming in pretty quick time. Captain Allen making up for his crap innings last week with a little 22 off 19 balls cameo at the end of the innings.

    Pitch is a green pitch too, so I'm pretty confident my bowlers will perform.

    edit: They're currently 5 down for 8 runs. Looks like I'm going to steamroller to victory this week as well. Makes me sad when I think about where I might have been on the table if I hadn't missed the first two games. :\

    Edit2: All over, skittled 'em for 32. Would have been less but the batsman who got stranded while all the others fell down the opposite end smashed a 6 and a 4 off my best bowler the over before the last wicket fell. Carruthers finished with figures of 5-21, and we ended up winning by 277 runs. These last two matches flatter my team so much, we're not as good as it makes us look. xD

    I lost today, bit gutted as I posted 300+ and they knocked 'em off with ease and my sensational bowler got hit for 50-odd.

    Decent enough ratings though:

    Middle Order: 	strong 		respectable

    Spin Bowling: 	competent 	quality
    Fielding: 	feeble 		woeful

    Zebras 212 (47.3) (C Cattermole 75, S **** 92)
    Citzens Erased 213-1 (40.5)

    Expected to lose as I TFI'd after a few close matches. **** continues his exceptional form, while Vijay Hitish, a keeper/batsman pulled at the end of last year has also hit a couple of tons and is now my only other batsman of note. Bowling wise, I need a bit more strength in the seam attack and probably one more strong batsman.
