    Not doing too badly in my game...

    508-8 Declared Gedye 238(282), Islam(My YP kicking on for his first score of repute) 150
    301 all out(follow on enforced) Gedye 4-38
    90-1 in 21 overs.
    Pretty much everything going to the plan, would've liked to have dismissed them for cheaper though.

    Pretty thorough demolition. Surprisingly their elite bowler didn't take a wicket, he is on moderate fitness though.
    Picked up the last seven wickets for three runs, Downer finishing with 4-8 and Whitehorne 3-1.

    Was just starting to get bored and then this happened:

    Code:
    48.6	W	Oleary to Lewis
     	 	I think everybody heard that nick to Nagamootoo. Lewis didn't
     	 	even wait around for the umpire to raise his finger.
    48.5	W	Oleary to Nolan
     	 	Nolan charged towards Oleary like a rhino on heat, only to miss
     	 	the ball and have Nagamootoo whip off the bails. Out!
    48.4	.	Oleary to Nolan
     	 	Dabbed away to mid wicket.
    48.3	.	Oleary to Nolan
     	 	On the back foot, managed to defend to the off, cover running
     	 	in to field.
    48.2	W	Oleary to Hird
     	 	A swing and a miss. Clean bowled.
    48.1	W	Oleary to Boyce
     	 	Attempts the cut but the ball is lower than Boyce anticipated
     	 	and he only succeeds in chopping it onto his own stumps!
     	 	Bowled him, albeit with some assistance!
    Awesome. Should wrap this up inside two days, then. Oop, there goes another.

    Took 18 wickets today, gutted I lost the toss or else this game would've been over today. Should win by innings and 150-ish.

    One player is struggling with his fitness which is down to fresh, I forgot to set my orders so I've rested a spinner who has sublime fitness and played a seamer who has fresh fitness now. Oops. Means I'll have to rest him on Friday which's bit annoying.

    Had couple of needed pops on Monday too:

    Dave Taylor - 19 yo, BT Rating=24,796
    RH Batsman, RH Spin Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, lively
    An attacking player with feeble leadership skills and woeful experience.
    Stamina: feeble Wicket Keeping: woeful
    Batting: remarkable Concentration: strong
    Bowling: worthless Consistency: worthless
    Fielding: woeful

    Kenwynne Sekani - 22 yo, BT Rating=37,727
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, respectable batting form, superb bowling form, fresh
    A steady player with woeful leadership skills and mediocre experience.
    Stamina: competent Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: mediocre Concentration: mediocre
    Bowling: exceptional Consistency: strong
    Fielding: feeble

    Was furious at my remarkable bowler before lunch (Tuck 15-2-54-0 yesterday evening + this morning). Comes back and takes a wicket third ball.

    172-4 defending 251 and into the respectables. Game on.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    Slightly better day today, due in part to the oppo batting on (despite having logged on overnight) and killing time in the game, as well as enabling me to get all three bowling points. Should be able to survive tomorrow and get the draw now.

    butterfingersXI were 492/3 after Day 1:

    Close of play:

    butterfingersXI: 682/10 (169.2) Westwood 4/170 (45), Liddle 3/112 (24.2)
    The Heath CC: 112/4 (50) Singh 25, Caldwell 21*, Bartlett 21*

    Absolutely turgid stand between Singh (25 from 103 balls) and Gardiner (18 from 82 balls) was ended with the score on 79/4. YP Caldwell and Bartlett set about steadying the ship, and will hopefully be able to carry on tomorrow and get a few batting points.

    172-4 defending 251 and into the respectables. Game on.
    Dynamo Morpork 251 all out (James 66, Porter 65; Barnard 8/40)
    The Bosstones 222 all out (Oakes 84; Harris 3/61, Tuck 3/66)
    Dynamo Morpork 199 for 1 (Herbert 117*, James 57)
    Dynamo Morpork lead by 228 runs

    Question is when to declare really. Scored at 5 an over with Herbert around, can't see them scoring at more than 4. So presumably something like 360 off 90 overs.

    End of Over 32 (1 runs). Sheidow Warriors: 87-7, runrate=2.72 (1st Inn: 227-10)
    Trail by 24 runs. (Opening Balance 122-10 & 216-10)
    Meyer 7-3-5-2
    Best* 1 (10 balls)
    Shura 0 (0 balls)

    Last Wicket: Chapman c. Moloto b. Meyer 0 (FOW: 87/7)

    Closing in on a completely unexpected victory!

    EDIT: And that's the end of the match. Opening Balance won by 19 runs.

    End of Over 39 (Maiden). Sheidow Warriors: 92-10, runrate=2.36 (1st Inn: 227-10)
    Trail by 19 runs. (Opening Balance 122-10 & 216-10)

    Best* 1 (32 balls)
    Last Wicket: Bayliss lbw b. Verhoeven 0 (FOW: 92/10)

    Quite happy with that tbh.

    There's actually a tiny chance that I could win this. Bowled them out for 103, which is weird considering I bowled them out for 557 in the first innings, leaving me 443 to chase.

    Lets hope my batsmen can do something special.
