Hmm I see that renown idiot eggy, the England U19 manager, has been banned (something to do with changing URLs to gain access to stuff he shouldn't).
My initial reaction was 'get in and good riddance' - my more considered reaction is exactly the same.
In trouble here, Wikus about to come back on, need him to go through them.
End of Over 40: 205-2, runrate=5.13
Munroe* 73 (77 balls)
Dylan 99 (115 balls)
40.1 W Wikus to Munroe
Munroe must have walked under a ladder during the week. That pitched outside leg stump but the umpire raises his finger and he's gone. Very unlucky.
I love you Wikus.
Im in trouble here. Dylan now has the highest score in the history of me vs Smith matches. Need Hocking to top it to win me thinks.
End of Over 44: 243-3, runrate=5.52
Dylan* 121 (128 balls)
De beer 15 (11 balls)
Seems whenever i post, Wikus takes wickets. Expect a reply soon.
44.5 W Wikus to Heads
He's hit that hard...Wait! It's been gobbled up in the deep! Great Catch!
44.4 W Wikus to De beer
Marvellous delivery that! Wikus drew De beer into the shot and a thick outside edge is well taken at first slip.
Lets see if it works. Still think ill lose this, probably post like 180 in reply.
End of Over 46: 256-5, runrate=5.57
Sambrook* 2 (3 balls)
Dylan 132 (134 balls)
46.4 W Wikus to Dylan
Edged... and out! Beaumont could quite happily catch those all day. A most straight forward dismissal.
Great effort by Dylan though, 133(136), should win them the game.
Lets see if i can get Wikus to clean up the tail.
Has to be said, Sicelo is good at bowling to the tail.
47.6 1 Sicelo to Sambrook
And he almost had him - Sicelo digs one in short and Sambrook plays it far too late, gently gloving it down to fine leg for a single.
47.5 4 Sicelo to Sambrook
Sambrook rocks onto the back foot and punches that through cover point for four.
47.4 1 Sicelo to Swart
Takes on Johnson, and makes his ground easily.
47.3 6 Sicelo to Swart
That's a risky slog down to cow corner…..this'll be close….it's a six! Heskins's outstretched hand was just inches away there.
47.2 . Sicelo to Swart
Tight, shortish ball just outside off stump. Watchfully defended from the crease and played into the off side.
47.1 W Sicelo to Hodge
HOWZAT? Given him. A neat catch by Beaumont after a good piece of bowling by Sicelo. Hodge just did'nt have an answer. OUT
Wikus finishes with 7, too little too late though. Dont think ill chase it.
48.5 W Wikus to Seneviratne
That was in the air for a long time, Naylor got under it, nearly dropped it and finally cradled it at the fourth attempt. Wikus's heart was in his mouth there.
48.4 . Wikus to Seneviratne
Snickometer is suggesting that Seneviratne got lucky there. I'm surprised that neither Wikus or Beaumont went up for that one.
48.3 W Wikus to Pryde
In the air………… and out! An excellent catch over his shoulder by the man at deep square leg.
48.2 W Wikus to Sambrook
Sambrook has come right up the pitch to that one and missed completely, an easy stumping for Beaumont!
48.1 . Wikus to Sambrook
Nicely floated up on off stump, looks to play it to leg but it straightens so he adjusts to defend back to Wikus.
End of Over 49: 272-10, runrate=5.55
Swart* 7 (3 balls)
0.1 W Hodge to Heskins
OUT! Tentative push to the off side, and second slip grabs it easily.
Playing a game against CrazyWater. Kept them to 4-265 and we're 0-12 after 3 overs.
Which for us, lately, is fantastic. Haha.
Most boring season ever. Div 5 so so boring.
Any international team want a freindly?
That sucks, now any hope of me winning has gone down the drain.
6.2 W Hodge to Hiller
Perfect line and length by Hodge has resulted in a well deserved wicket.
After resting my two best bowlers the plan to go all out with my next best two is back firing bad against Manju. Just got a wicket though, so a couple more and we could be a chance. I got nothing after these guys.
End of Over 13: 82-2, runrate=6.31

At 42 the game is well over.

***** 79 (81 balls)
Cattermole 66 (130 balls)
Last Wicket: Islam lbw b. Verhoeven 6 (FOW: 13/1)
Lost by 42 runs. We were in with a shout until the standard BT collapse.
Haha i stuffed up my orders and i have a worthless/feeble bowler on. He will probably still do better then my competent/competent seamer has been doing. Dowdall got a couple wickets but Gratton still in.
End of Over 27: 156-5, runrate=5.78
Gratton* 36 (31 balls)
King 2 (6 balls)
Last Wicket: Speare c & b. Dowdall 4 (FOW: 151/5)
