I lost my last 5 wickets for one run, with Tedstone still in there at the other end. I'm still in 3rd, but now only NRR separates me from 4th and 5th.
Blackbutt CC won the toss and elected to bat.

Balls! Just handed a debut to my 17 year old batsman (first respectable player in my side) and he gets out to the first ball of the match!

Decent start tonight for my boys, have the opposition 56/5 after 16. Islam took 4 so far including a hattrick. Their best player by far is still in though so i expect they will make 200.
End of Over 23: 57-5, runrate=2.48
Leonard* 3 (10 balls)
Newman 0 (6 balls)
Last Wicket: Buck c. Lias b. Mubarak 32 (FOW: 55/5)
Going for the 6th Straight Win. It's too easy now.
Bowling on a sunny day, green pitch. Happy with that so far, the weather should stop their two medium pacers from running through me (not that they're that good anyway). They're a solid side (similar batting to me) but don't have anything extra. Summers is bowling in the last 10 so I'm hoping he can polish them off for under 200.
End of Over 30: 110-3, runrate=3.67
Cole* 13 (25 balls)
Lightbody 53 (77 balls)
Last Wicket: Hornsby lbw b. Pace 22 (FOW: 91/3)
Ooh, double wicket for Dillon:
End of Over 31: 113-5, runrate=3.65
Cole* 14 (26 balls)
Grabben 0 (0 balls)
Last Wicket: Howlett c. Appleby b. Dillon 0 (FOW: 113/5)
32.1 W Dillon to Cole
That's a truly woeful shot. He couldn't have been surprised to hear the clink of his wicket breaking.
Dillon completes his hattrick - 120-6 now and into the rubbish. Wish my spinners would stop bowling no-balls mind...
End of Over 43: 134-10, runrate=3.12
Alshaun* 0 (1 balls)
Shame the penultimate wicket was a run out, otherwise Summers would have a 5-fer. Hopefully I can chase that at 5 an over or thereabouts and get a nice NRR boost.
From 111/0 (25 overs) to 189/1 (41ish) to 224/6 (47).
I'm not too displeased with that bowling performance, on a dusty pitch, especially given that I'm experimenting with a few things.
HOPEFULLY, I'll have a decent chance of chasing 240 or so. Knowing my luck, I'll fall just short again.
Oh well, I suppose there's always the cup.

For the second week in a row I'm making a total cock-up of what should have been a perfectly straight forward victory. Some how allowed seventh place Victoria Drivers to escape from 110/4 to 238/4. In reply Staveley, Noon and Patel are all gone, and I'm 53/3 after eleven. Need another ton from Greening, and my, as yet hopeless, middle order really need to consider pulling their fingers out of their bums!
The Heath CC: 332/8 (50) Gardiner 127, Bartlett 66, Marrison 44*
Burrages11: 108/10 (24) Woods 4/17, Davies 2/23, Marrison 2/37
The Heath CC won by 224 runs
My biggest BT victory yet, made possible by the biggest total I've ever made. Gardiner became the third player in my side to make a century in the league this season, and was supported by Bartlett's maiden half-century.
Woods and Marrison ran through the Burrages top order, and only a last-wicket partnership of 38 pushed their score into 3 figures.
My 3 debutants had mixed performances. Thorpe was out to the first ball of the match which was disappointing, but Woods excelled with the ball, taking a hatrick with the last three balls of his first over. Davies took a wicket with his first ball, but performed solidly rather than spectacularly aside from that.
