    Won my game by 8 wickets after bowling out their solid lineup for 134, lost two early-ish wickets but Armstrong and Wheat notched up unbeaten half-centuries and I won with over half the overs left. I should be top of my division now.

    Also for those who haven't noticed the searches now require exact matches, which is very irritating. So it would be handy if you add your exact team details on here or in the other thread linked here:

    KIWI DO IT? YES WE CAN!

    Shortland Street, frozen lamb, cheap labour for London bars…Um….And other stuff! Well now you can add Frank Mohammed to that illustrious list of great Kiwi exports, as the New Zealand youngster came of age in a match against struggling Victoria Drivers, which Cymru Gurgitaters should have won easily, yet so nearly contrived to lose in spectacular fashion.

    Perhaps some of the blame for a lacklustre performance in the field should fall on the shoulders of Vayro, who opted to change both the pitch and the bowling orders, leaving his attack bemused. Yet it started off so promisingly with medium pacers Rem/Strong Bewers and Sup/Comp Wilde strangling the early Drivers' run-rate, and prising out the key wicket of Rem South African Winnecott for just 14.

    But in switching from Default to B4&5 Finish, Vayro had failed to take note of the fact that this required his openers to bowl seven overs straight through. Yes, Wilde normally bowls seven from the start with Default overs, but somehow today it seemed to take its toll much more, as the Med Stam trainee slumped from figures of 5/0/15/1, to finish on 10/0/50/1.

    The pick of the bowlers were Strong/Prof LHS Cash, who capitalised on the spin-friendly conditions to return 10/2/32/1 and Bewers, who was extremely neat but a little light-weight for his 0/36. however, the men entrusted with the death overs, Sup/Prof RHS Bridges M, and Sup/Resp LFM Carlton proved today what many have suspected, namely that Superb is no longer good enough to affectively contain the slog overs. They laboured over The Drivers middle order of two Sups and a Prof, allowing them to escape from 110/4, to finish on a competitive 238/4. Bridges M 1/45, Carlton 1/67.

    In reply Qual/Strong Alton (Towers) Staveley had a point to prove, with Wond/Strong Greening just forty-two runs behind in the Gurs' all-time run scorers table, and he proved it alright, giving an eloquent demonstration that Greening isn't two batting levels ahead of him for nothing, as Staveley lost his Off pole in single figures for the second time this week! No.3 Sup/Rem Joe Noon announced his arrival in bombastic style, hooking his first ball from Prof quick McKie high over Square Leg for six. But the problem with hookers is that once all the fun's over, you have to pay for them, and Mckie collected with interest when Noon's Cut was well held by Fernandez for just 16. 46/2 became 48/3 within the over, as Patel proved that swingers can be just as dangerous as hookers - Although in this instance it was Drivers' former England Keeper, Isaac Lawson who ended up catching something - Patel for 1.

    At the non-striker's end, Greening had barely had a chance to run off lunch before he was forced to pick up the tatters of his team's innings, and he wouldn't much have fancied the company which he had to help him do it. Before today numbers five to seven, Strong/Feeb Mohammed, Resp/Sup Cash and Prof/Resp Qureshi had amassed a collective league tally of 37 runs, at a mean average of around 9. But, with his contract under review at the end of the season, today was the day that Mohammed stepped up to prove to Vayro why he should stay on. With a mountain ahead of Mohammed, he said "bring it on!", notching up his maiden league fifty from just 45 deliveries, prophetting from some wayward Drivers' spin bowling. By the time he was out for a career best 80 (122) the winning-post was just 13 runs away. Greening, 116* (119), was once again exemplary, if not a little subdued by his own very high standards, as a late acceleration masked what was, for long periods, a sluggish knock.

    The Gurs now have a week to iron out the malaise in their bowling as they enjoy a virtual walk-over next Friday against IV.11 whipping-boys, Everton_aggro. But as July beckons, a trip to the fast-improving Wrong'uns, and a re-match against league-leaders Who's Your Daddy loom large on the horizon. Three weeks which will decide whether The Gurs' season is to be an odyssey or an oddity.

    Won my match today, pretty pleased considering I was playing the top of the table team who were undefeated in the league so far. Ended up losing the toss away from home and bowling first, kept them down to 182 all out and then knocked off the runs fairly easily in 37 overs for the loss of only two wickets, Jan scoring another century. If I'd have been around for the first two games instead of missing them I'm fairly confident I'd be top of the league undefeated, and am pretty confident of beating everyone else in the league.

    Just gutted I missed those first games and am now stuck at number 4 in the league on 12 points, with everyone else in front of me on 4 wins and 1 loss all on 16 points. My N.R.R is 11.62, and the closest to that are the blokes I just beat who have a N.R.R of 3.23.

    Going to debut my 17 year old seamer that I bought not too long ago next game I think, see how he goes.

    Edit: Ha, turns out my opening bowlers are leading the average table so far this season.

    Code:
    No  	Name  	                        M  	O  	M  	 R  	 W  	Ave  	Best  	5w  	SR  	Econ
    1. 	Patterson (Guttedball ) 	5 	34.5 	6 	104 	17 	6.12 	4-8 	0 	12.29 	2.99
    2. 	Carruthers (Guttedball ) 	3 	20.0 	1 	82 	10 	8.20 	5-21 	1 	12.00 	4.10
    But for those two missed games Carruthers might be on top, who knows. Good stuff though, happy with that.

    I doubt you have a remarkable top order on a TIE.

    I hit 422 yesterday with my opener Barry Merry scoring 210. Rolled them for 163 All Out, with my rookie seamer Kieran Schutte taking 4/60. Got a match against Blake side oz fans' XI on Sunday, looking to take a 2-0 lead in a best of 3.

    BTW how many PR reps do you need for 936 members?

    3, after you get past 943, four is most profitable.
