    End of Over 3 (Maiden). Cleveland Heights: 2-1, runrate=0.67
    Tuck 2-2-0-1
    Kilgallon* 0 (4 balls)
    Wadeer 0 (13 balls)
    Last Wicket: Stuart c. Lewis b. Tuck 0 (FOW: 1/1)

    Solid. Hopefully Shaka will see sense and take Tuck off after 6-7 overs.

    Sent a prof and a respectable in to open, instructing them to play very defensively. Glad they listened.

    End of Over 4 (1 runs). Asterix XI: 1-0, runrate=0.25
    Clough 2-1-1-0
    Challis* 1 (11 balls)
    Gilligan 0 (13 balls)

    Huh. I'm now 103-7, my bowler with abys/med batting having made a seventy-two ball 2. That is some Boycott-esque stuff right there. It is also, given the quality of the bowlers he was facing, quite hilarious.

    Oops, 104-8.

    Edit: 108-9. Nice to see "farming the strike" is as alien a concept to FC as it is to OD.

    End of Over 57 (4 runs). Phils hotspurs: 154-4, runrate=2.70
    Lead by 94 runs. (Scaly Piscine CC 60-10)
    Pace 13-3-37-1

    Dunn 107 (174 balls)

    Last Wicket: Abraham c. Spencer b. Summers 37 (FOW: 150/4)


    Still getting BT-shafted and then some. Meanwhile the 'captain' decides to bowl every single bowler on or longer than the max overs/spell in priority order.

    Two BT-specials each:


    End of Over 63 (1 runs). Phils hotspurs: 166-10, runrate=2.63
    Lead by 106 runs. (Scaly Piscine CC 60-10)
    Pace 15-3-46-3
    Townsend* 9 (15 balls)


    Won't do my BT bank balance or my sunny disposition much good this match. Last 6 went down for 3 runs.

    Got the team you knocked out of the cup in my FC league, Nafe. Should be good for a win.

    In a similar, but not quite as bad, situation to Jamee. Having been 204/3 at one stage, as predicted, I meekly succumbed for 230. Mohammed provided the glue with 77 from a marathon 190 deliveries, supported by Cash 60* and Akhtar 44.

    In reply, Carlton snagged Prof Stot in the first over, caught behind by Cash, who in addition to batting No.5 and bowling No.4, also appears to be mistakenly keeping - I didn't think you could do that? Well apparently you can! And he's still Sub fitness, what a trooper.

    However, after that things went a little pair-shaped, as Rem Heath 75*, and Prof Tomkins 66* added an unbroken 164, reaching stumps at 164/1. With any luck I could keep the lead to around 100 with a couple of fluky break-throughs, but more realistically, I'm looking at relying on them being too greedy, batting out most of tomorrow for 400+, and leaving me a day and a bit to bat out for the draw.

    But much prefer the FC format, though I guess it's interest does depend on having a close, or at least a realistic scenario

    Close of Play:

    Essex Eagles: 50/10 (27.4) Woods 4/34 (10), Marrison 3/4 (5.4)
    The Heath CC: 225/5 (82) Gardiner 70* (199), Kepler 57 (130)

    Good recovery, having been 4/2 and 31/3. Kepler and Gardiner dug in during the afternoon session, and then Gardiner carried on in the evening session with good support from Singh (40) and Talbot (20*). With a decent forecast for tomorrow, we'll hopefully bat on and manage to secure maximum bonus points before having another crack at their batsmen.
