    Just got home to this scorecard:

    Badlands won the toss and elected to field.
    Pitch: Slow

    End of Over 18: 70-5, runrate=3.89, reqrunrate=5.44 (243-10)
    Downer 9-1-34-3
    Phillips* 27 (36 balls)
    Beadle 0 (4 balls)

    Last Wicket: Dobinson lbw b. Downer 5 (FOW: 70/5)

    Quite happy with that, into the tail already with Phillips the only real batsman remaining. My batting was somewhat dodgy (three wickets in the first two overs) but the bowling has been good as usual. Whitehorne still yet to bowl a ball.

    A win should virtually secure the title, there is a slight possibility of me still coming second if I get absolutely thrashed next week and the no. 2 team dispenses a thrashing of similar proportions. It's unlikely though.

    Edit: and Downer has just dismissed Phillips. Gun. And another.

    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.
    Ok, I'll bear that in mind! Would you mind having a look at my trainees and training regime and see what you think?

    I also have two floating stamina nets, one of which is currently on Woods, the other of which is currently on another trainee I bought and am training up for the duration of his contract before hopefully selling him on for a decent profit.

    I'm unsure as to what to do at the end of the season. With the TM going so mad at the moment, I might not buy 17 year olds at the start of this season and just carry on training these guys instead. Alternatively I could sell one of each and carry on training two whilst buying in 1 or 2 new 17 year olds. What would you recommend?

    I wouldn't bother giving any of them fielding nets, I might give Kepler a w/k net depending on what your current keeper is like. I'd be inclined to sell one of those trainees and go with double primary nets on the remaining 3, with any left over being nets being fitness nets til you get the stamina up to a good level. At 19/20 drop to one primary net, they should be quality-wonderful by then with high stamina. The secondaries might be lagging behind a bit by then but they'll gradually catch up when they're one netted.

    i can not believe i just lost my league game on the last ball when they hit a 4. they needed 8 to win of the last over chasing 297 for victory, and this is how the over went

    ball 1.......single
    ball 2.......single
    ball 3.......single
    ball 4........single
    ball 5........single
    ball 6.....needing 3 to win he hits a 4



    can not believe it. it drops me down to 6th from 3rd. close comp....

    My current keeper has competent keeping with comp/med batting - do you reckon it's worth giving Kepler a wk net then? I have toyed with the idea in the past.

    Just brought this guy as my 5th bowler for 2.3 mil, should be handy for 1-2 seasons. I'm going to sell a couple of my respectable players soon though, as i have no money to pay wages ATM.

    Definitely, wicket-keeping pops fast, 6-7 weeks or something for 17yos. He'll be a nice player for you in the future.

    Haha. Just checked the result. Chased 324 in the last over despite Herbert getting out for 12.

    Edit

    Another dusty pitch upset, with that edge in ratings they should have picked a green wicket - dusty pitches are super-random and weird.

    Against Dwyer.

    End of Over 10: 55-2, runrate=5.50
    Wikus 5-0-24-0
    Canning* 30 (29 balls)
    Griffin 15 (26 balls)
    Last Wicket: Tedstone c. Allison b. Poke 8 (FOW: 17/2)

    I'm playing Canning as my only seam bowler to see what ratings I get, meaning I've got a feeble and mediocre bowling in the middle overs, so I really need to get a big score on if I actually want to win this. Annoyed that Terry got out first ball while opening. Last thing I need is another batsman of mine who can't open.
