    Wonder if we can chase down 306...

    Another good win for my side today:

    Darrens Dynamoes: 95/10 (31.2) Woods 3/12 (5), Liddle 3/17 (6.1)
    The Heath CC: 96/2 (21.3) Gardiner 47* (62), Thorpe 43* (60)

    The Heath CC win by 8 wickets.

    Bit of an experiment today, as I don't usually like to chase, but it worked out pretty well. My bowlers did a great job on an uneven wicket and after a couple of early wickets, the youth of Thorpe and experience of Gardiner saw us home without any further setbacks.

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

    We're on top on the our round 7 cup match at the moment. If we can remove Howland, then the rest of the Ferocious Ferrets batting lineup should fold.

    End of Over 30: 118-5, runrate=3.93
    Graham 10-1-32-1
    Howland* 39 (57 balls)
    North 7 (20 balls)

    Last Wicket: Adcook b. Graham 4 (FOW: 83/5)

    Jeez, my team is so dismal at the moment. Scraped through in the cup on a PAN though, changed from TIE at the last minute fortunately.

    Asterix XI 304-9
    Ashton 109 (106), Cuss 86 (103), Watkins 50 (34)

    Peters Utd 286-4
    Harewood 2-38, Downer 1-71, Watkins 1-78

    Harewood finally did something of note, dismissed their miraculous batsman and more or less saved us. They had a decent batting lineup but I still think my bowlers have been underperforming of late.

    Code:
     
                  Peters Utd   Asterix XI 
    Top Order:    exquisite    masterful 
    Middle Order: strong       respectable 
    Lower Order:  abysmal      woeful 
    Seam Bowling: quality      exquisite 
    Spin Bowling: respectable  sensational 
    Fielding:     feeble       feeble
    Got a nightmare schedule for the next few weeks:

    Saint Barth Blondes (League)
    Borderliners (Cup)
    NorCricket United (League)
    [possible cup final]
    Borderliners (League)

    Will probably just PAN all the way. Looking to sell Mattis and buy another batsman before next week.

    Well, my side kept our cup dreams alive with an ultimately comfortable 6 wicket win this afternoon.

    Ferocious Ferrets 176 (44.5 overs)
    Sweeney 5/29

    Whenuapai CC 4/177 (41.1)
    Duggan 91* (116)

    Lower Order:  abysmal            woeful

    Spin Bowling: proficient         exceptional 
    Fielding:     feeble             feeble

    we host reverse sweepers next week, the side who won my division last season. i always felt that we had the better team, and i think on paper we should be able to topple them next monday. then again on paper, most of us predicted them to relegate, not auto-promote, last season.

    Code:
    reverse sweepers 
    Top Order: superb 
    Middle Order: proficient 
    Lower Order: abysmal 
    Seam Bowling: masterful 
    Spin Bowling: proficient 
    Fielding: woeful
    i was planning on using a slow pitch against napier during saturday's league game, but i don't think this will work out because i want to use a flat pitch against sweepers. is it possible to shift pich conditions two levels in two days? somehow i don't think that it would work out. perhaps i should go with a dusty pitch instead. anyone got any ideas? there is much to ponder in the next few days

    Hopefully have a couple primary pops soon. Interesting to note that even is my string of losses pretty much all my main players' form is superb or strong. Maybe they are actually playing above their ability.

    Mine isnt too bad, though Hiller is starting to piss me off, and Sicelo went down 2 levels this week.

    Code:
    		Batting		Bowling
    Heskins		Superb		Strong
    Hocking		Superb		Strong
    Hiller		Competent	Superb
    Beaumont	Superb		Superb
    Johnson		Respectable	Superb
    Allison		Superb		Superb
    Naylor		Superb		Superb
    Sicelo		Superb		Respectable
    Carr		Superb		Strong
    Wikus		Superb		Strong
    Poke		Strong		Superb
