Player fitness being tested heavily. Going to be an interesting week. Lost my first match as expected, but it's time to win. Playing my second ever match on TIE, hope I don't lose.

...my match won't start. Not happy.
EDIT: Gah, if I've read correctly, no live sims. Why?

Boohoo. You'll probably get scorecards eventually but no live commentary. If anyone really wants to 'watch' their match, let me know and I'll post the archived commentary when it's available.
...and accepted. Will be playing an absolutely dreadful team to ensure my players are fit for 20/20. Which means some batsmen bowling etc etc.
Adam - little harsh. Something you need to get off your chest sweety?
Haha yeah, didn't see anything wrong with it.
Games are up btw. Bowled them out for 81 and chased it in 6.5 overs, Canning opened and got 45* off 18.
Had an easy win in game 2, bowled them out for 51 then chased that up in 6 overs for the loss of 1 wicket. 2/2 so far.

Brackenhurst - 217/0 (20 overs)
Burnip 151* (73)
Hindle 62* (47)
squad bake - 112/10 (15.5 overs)
Moore 38 (26)
Holmes 5/21 (2.5)
Hindle 4/21 (4)
Singh 1/29 (4)
So yeah, like wow. Playing on TIE, which I was worried about. And somehow win really well. Got all Mediocres on TIE as well, very happy. Burnip's 50 off 21 in 4.3, 100 off 49 in 12.2 and his 150 off 72 in the last over. Hindle was good support and then my spinners had a party. I know it's meaningless 20/20, but still.
EDIT: LOL. How crap do you feel when an opposition batsman already has fifty racked up and it's only the 4.3rd over?

Was pumped by some Div IV team in my first 20/20 match, and then i hammered some poor bloke with woeful/abysmal ratings today. My openers Stroud 153*(68) and Harris 85*(53) remained unbeaten on our way to 246, before Meyer, Verhoeven & Groves knocked them off for 24.
No pops Moloto should pop to Superb batting next week though.
Lost my first game due to a poor batting performance but had a good win today.
The Yazz won the toss and elected to bat.
