    Aaah, rookie mistake this morning. I overslept and didn't wake up until my game had started. Consequently, my default (strongest possible) side is playing against the team who are 7th in my league when most of them are still meant to be taking it easy after the body-sapping games last week.

    To make it worse, I'm batting first, so it's not like it'll even be over quickly. Still, should be entertaining - might break some records today.

    End of Over 7: 52-0, runrate=7.43
    Kanelo 4-0-33-0
    Caldwell* 21 (19 balls)
    Kepler 30 (24 balls)

    End of Over 7: 20-6, runrate=2.86
    Summers 4-1-6-3
    Blackstock* 7 (11 balls)
    Redding 3 (8 balls)

    Last Wicket: Keane b. Summers 4 (FOW: 10/6)


    Got their entire top 4 out within the first 8 balls of the innings. Interesting. They get exceptional/quality/mediocre batting ratings - up there with that shower of piss that fluked the miracle of all miracles on Sunday because of BT's pathetic match engine.

    Well, it's been a pretty good start for the Wonderers at Sanderson Park today. The Tykes are batting, and 8/2 after 3 overs (having been 2/2 after 2), with Ishaq and Hanson back in the pavilion.

    However, Hoose's bunch bat pretty deep, so there's plenty more to do. Drury and Stansfield are more than capable of putting together a huge partnership for the 3rd wicket.

    I'm playing a full-strength team (although I've plumped for Buckley's all round skills rather than Hardy's better bowling) -- I need to win my two remaining OD games to avoid auto-relegation, while I think Pete will reach mathematical safety with a win today.

    End of Over 28: 208-0, runrate=7.43
    Warnasooriya 4-0-37-0
    Kepler* 107 (83 balls)
    Caldwell 94 (88 balls)

    4th century in 7 OD innings for Kepler this season (the other three have resulted in 50's). His invigorated fitness may prevent him from beating his HS of 173 but his career average of 107.88 will get another boost.

    Wah wah wah. Suck it in and be a man for once. I'm so incredibly bored of hearing your pathetic sob stories that litter these battrick and from the pavillion threads. If you don't like the engine, stop playing the ****ing things or, even better, be constructive and build an alternative game that doesn't have such a "pathetic match engine".

    Agreed. Would love to play a game invented by SP and monopolise the 'You know what really grinds my gears?' thread on OT with rants about how I've been screwed over by his match engine.

    Turns out my opponent sneakily switched his green pitch to H+F overnight, which makes the way my bowlers have kept things tight until now all the more pleasing. If I can keep them below 230 I'm in with a shout, I reckon.

    End of Over 40: 167-3, runrate=4.18
    Gill 10-1-53-0
    Rankine* 63 (85 balls)
    Jarrett 12 (9 balls)
    Last Wicket: Osbourne c & b. Piercy 63 (FOW: 126/3)

    Particularly pleased with prof/resp Marriott going for just 24 off his 10 overs. Now for the front-liners to take up the strain...

    His rants are my favourite thing about this forum

    Yet Another Five-fer For Oleary (henceforth to be referred to as YAFFO for short), as they're all out with five balls left.

    End of Over 50: 213-10, runrate=4.26
    Oleary 9-1-40-5
    Pead 10-1-42-4
    Hinshelwood* 2 (5 balls)

    Still very much in the balance as they've got some very strong bowlers, but keeping them below 250 is a great effort. Shame I'll be in a car all evening and won't get to watch all of my innings (barring a horrible collapse).

    GFI'd my match against the last place side. Worked out well, as I took the lead in the league on NRR. Will GFI my next match as well to make sure I get a 1st spot. I'm playing 4th, Runners are playing 3rd. I actually don't want to promote in OD. I just don't want some side in D2 throwing a playoff and leaving me in D3 for too long.

    Code:
    1. Jaffna Jets         13 11 0 2 44 45.23 
    2. Ranatunga's Runners 13 11 0 2 44 44.46
