    Erk. Sacrificial wicket Alshaun goes as planned to appease the BT gods, but Bromby fails to make it out of the first ten overs as well, making a stilted 8 from 18. As so often this season, it's down to Platt and Janes...

    End of Over 9: 46-2, runrate=5.11, reqrunrate=4.10 (213-10)
    Ball 5-0-22-2
    Platt* 36 (35 balls)
    Janes 0 (0 balls)
    Last Wicket: Bromby c. Taggart b. Ball 8 (FOW: 46/2)

    Edit: Ack, Janes goes for just 13 and all of a sudden I'm in trouble. Don't like my chances from here. 133 left to get and only Platt left who's any good.

    Oh look it's one of those rants about ranting. How sweet. Instead of whining and deifying over NZ cricketers in equal measure why don't you stop watching the personification of mediocrity and go and become one of those once every couple of decade players - a world-class NZ cricketer?

    And back to BT. I won.

    Beat MOD-hexogen's side today with ratings of:

    Code:
    		RDX 		Boggles 
    Top Order: 	sensational 	quality 
    Middle Order: 	exceptional 	proficient 
    Lower Order: 	woeful 		worthless 
    Seam Bowling: 	exquisite 	remarkable 
    Spin Bowling: 	elite 		exceptional 
    Fielding: 	mediocre 	woeful


    I'd be spitting blood if I'd lost that one. My morale was actually desolate before this game, quite looking forward to having everything reset so I can see my new ratings after a season of getting thumped every game.

    Bit stupid to bat first. Could have wrecked my CW Cup chances.

    And back to BT. I won.
    And I do sooooo much ranting and deifying of NZ cricketers. Not my style I'm afraid.

    I was thinking about my post last night, and realised that I was being a bit harsh on you. Obviously, you are skewed towards games with a flawed match engine - it must be some terrible personality trait that you suffer from.

    After all, despite you being the undisputed Scrabble champion on here, there's a good chance that you could draw E,E,E,E,E,E,E on your opening go (the only legitimate word being 'EE' I believe). Given such a diabolical start, I'd wager that even your obvious scrabbling superiority would be severely tested. I realise you could re-rack, but if your opponent conversely drew a 7 letter word (or 8 letter word containing an E, which of course he/she doesn't have (e.g. C,A,Z,I,Q,U,S for the word Caziques)), then a comeback would be laboured.

    Any game that requires even a modicum of luck would be a 'flawed engine' under your assessment I feel.

    Personally, I quite like the idea of the unpredictible - that the lesser team can win in the FA Cup, that Bangladesh can defeat the World Champions and that the Cymru Gurgitators can defeat Scaly Piscine XI - regardless of how little you care for the Battrick engine.

    Secured the title with a 10-wicket win over Batletico.

    Batletico 225 (48 overs)
    Whitehorne 6-29 (9), Lancaster 2-42 (9), Dissanayake 1-42, Howland 1-56

    Asterix XI 226/0 (38.2)
    Howland 124* (98), Ashton 97* (132)

    Code:
    	        Asterix XI 	Batletico
    Top Order: 	miraculous 	exquisite
    Middle Order: 	exquisite 	superb
    Lower Order: 	feeble  	abysmal
    Seam Bowling: 	exquisite 	quality
    Spin Bowling: 	exquisite 	strong
    Fielding: 	mediocre 	mediocre
    Nice debut from Howland and decent ratings on PAN. Should clear my current best Batstats ratings by 20+ if I GFI next week.
