    Cruising in my game today:

    The Heath CC: 234/0 (40) Sutton 128* (126), Grant 101* (115)

    Sutton scores his 3rd century of the season, passing 500 runs in the league this season in the process and Grant makes his 5th century, passing 1000 runs for the season. Hoping for a total approaching 350, wouldn't mind if these two got out now to bring some fresh batsmen to the crease to up the runrate.

    My highest ever total, but perhaps more impressively Platt carried his bat for a score that's going to take some beating. Bromby the sole wicket, for a pitiful 128 off 95 balls.

    End of Over 50: 407-1, runrate=8.14
    Fikile 10-0-87-0
    Platt* 223 (165 balls)
    Janes 50 (42 balls)

    Okay, so it's a never-logged-in newbie team, but I'll take it. On a TIE to boot.

    End of Over 16: 45-0, runrate=2.81, reqrunrate=2.59 (132-10)
    Drury 1-0-3-0
    Armstrong* 21 (43 balls)
    Packer 24 (53 balls)

    I'm fairly amazed I haven't lost a wicket, their two opening bowlers get miraculous seam (they bowled 7 each at the start). There's a good solid spinner as well just on but the other two are dross. A win will seal the division.


    Meanwhile on the transfer market I've landed:

    Made a couple of signings myself today. I sold my 29 year old LF bowler Swift (competent/feeble with feeble stamina) for 16k yesterday and got this guy as a replacement for 18k:

    15. Jermaine Westwood (923155)
    RH Batsman, LFM Bowler, feeble batting form, worthless bowling form, changeable
    A steady player with woeful leadership skills and abysmal experience.

    Plays For: The Heath CC
    Nationality: West Indies
    Age: 25 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 2,019 (+83)
    Wages: £436 p/w

    Stamina: feeble Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: abysmal Concentration: abysmal
    Bowling: competent Consistency: mediocre
    Fielding: abysmal

    I'll train his stamina up to mediocre - with a few extra years on his side, I'm pretty pleased with him as a replacement, although I would like an out and out fast bowler as well.

    I've also signed this guy to replace my backup mediocre/woeful spinner

    Eddie Hennessy (1355428)
    LH Batsman, LH Spin Bowler, worthless batting form, respectable bowling form, changeable
    A cautious player with strong leadership skills and woeful experience.

    Plays For: The Heath CC
    Nationality: England
    Age: 23 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 3,712 (-62)
    Wages: £558 p/w

    Stamina: feeble Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: mediocre Concentration: feeble
    Bowling: competent Consistency: feeble
    Fielding: feeble

    Likewise, I'll train his stamina up to mediocre as well, and coupled with a bit of batting ability (no.8 or 9 in my lineup) and his strong leadership, I was pleased to get him without too much of a fight for 20k.

    It's not worth training their stamina, they're worth very little and with more stamina they'll still be worth very little. If you're concerned about PFL you could simply buy another player like those two for <50k, which is less than the value of one net session if you use it wisely.

  9. #144
    End of Over 32: 116-0, runrate=3.63, reqrunrate=0.94 (132-10)
    Adams 4-0-19-0
    Packer* 49 (96 balls)
    Armstrong 65 (96 balls)


    Cruising to the divison title.

    Thanks for the advice. I only want to train them to mediocre stamina as I have a policy of not playing anyone with anything less than that in my team, especially with FC cricket around the corner. I've also found that players with mediocre stamina have performed significantly better in my league than players with feeble stamina. For example, my opening batsman Grant started the season with feeble stamina and made a couple of centuries but was out in the last 10-15 overs. He has since been trained up to mediocre, and has carried his bat in two of my last three games for scores of 210* and 142* respectively.

    I will take your advice on board though, and congratulations on winning your division!

    Yea the stamina will make a difference for opening batsmen, they will slow down if they bat long enough with feeble stamina. But this problem doesn't really crop up lower down the order because they're not in long enough. As for bowling it shouldn't be a problem unless the players bowl through in one go.

    It's definitely worth training your best players up in stamina tho, I'd concentrate on getting your best players up, particularly players who're being trained and have the potential to be really good players for you in the future and particularly bowling & batting all-rounders.

    **** lashed another hundred (His record now in the league is 6 tons and 6 fifties in 13 games), as the Zebras cruised to 306 and secured their place in the league.

    A destructive player with high secondaries, an interesting combination. Bowling attack is going to be extremely scary. But it should interesting to see how you batting goes with 5 batsmen (3 all rounders). Plus whoever you get for current 5th bowlers' sale.

    End of Over 47: 266-4, runrate=5.66, reqrunrate=6.33 (284-7)
    Holland 9-0-62-1
    Mubarak* 25 (19 balls)
    Buffong 27 (10 balls)

    Last Wicket: Robertson c. Padayachie b. Shackell 74 (FOW: 225/4)


    Getting exciting in my match. For some reason the younger players had been picked for the friendly on sunday and managed to pick themselves for this match too.

    EDIT: we need 15 runs off the last 2 overs!
    Where's my money?
