    My OD league and recent OD ratings (top order/middle order, seam/spin):

    1. Asterix XI - masterful/miraculous, masterful/masterful
    2. Borderliners - masterful/wonderful, elite/masterful
    3. NorCricket United - elite/remarkable, elite/quality
    4. Twelfth Men - exceptional/wonderful, exquisite/miraculous
    5. Badlands - exquisite/exceptional, exceptional/exceptional
    6. Doobie Bombers - feeble/competent, feeble/useless (sold all their players)
    7. Peters Utd - elite/strong, remarkable/remarkable
    8. Bloody Americans - remarkable/strong, wonderful/exceptional

    Should be a pretty tough season. Wasn't really happy with my bowling in the loss to the (now demoted) Mud Poodles in the final league match, so have sold Allott for about 8m and will be looking to buy a bowler to train. Aiming to win my FC league (which has four bots in it), though Mud Poodles might make it difficult.

    Fancy a go in the longer form of the game? I'll challenge you at my place but don't mind if you want to play somebody different.

    Finally a worse team than me gets relegated into my OD league. 4 seasons in a row I've finished 2nd (I think, there maybe a 3rd in there) and now there's a chance of winning the league; though there are three other teams who look as if they may challenge.

    Got deliberately relegated to Div 5 in First Class, so I'm going to take that easy and rest my best players in that league.

    Off to a solid, if unspectacular start against the Ponies. Quite proud of my openers who have survived 3 Canning overs.

    End of Over 6: 25-0, runrate=4.17
    Canning 3-0-8-0
    Harris* 18 (20 balls)
    Kanelo 7 (16 balls)

    End of Over 50: 258-8, runrate=5.16
    Erasmus 10-0-73-2
    Yousif* 14 (11 balls)
    Groves 5 (6 balls)
    Last Wicket: Hamlin c. Terry b. Fernando 1 (FOW: 247/8)

    Quite happy with that effort. I'll need an immense bowling performance from Verhoeven & Hamlin to have any chance of winning though.

    1.5th XI Ground out a very unspectacular win against a team in Div VI. Bowled them out for 63 off 28 overs and then took 15 overs to get the runs with all bats set on 'very attacking'. Lost 3 wickets in the process, including the only decent bat run out for 0

    Interestingly, was looking at promoting a youth player and went to the club info page only to find out I've 'already promoted a player this week'...I haven't promoted a player for about 2 months.

    Because it's the changeover of seasons, you won't be able to promote a youth player until Tuesday or Wednesday. IMO you should be promoting a youth player every week though, you never know how lucky you might get.

    Yeah, you're right. It's a good idea...Considering my 2nd XI is pretty poor promoting every week wouldn't make it any worse. I've been holding off cause I don't want to have to find a net for someone if they turn out to be good, but maybe they're not the best tactics.

    Getting pummelled by Altoz, probably rested a few too many players.
