    So do I tbh, but with the way the game is. It is near impoosible to be competitive in both and keep PFLs good unless you have a squad of 14-15 good players. You really need 7 bowlers to try and manage it.

    Well the game has started. I lost the toss and was sent in to bat - which was weird, because I had planned to bat first anyway. Hard & fast pitch, sunny conditions - perfect for batting. I have rejigged the batting order a tiny bit after I lost a rather crucial OD game on Friday (which basically means I am in Div 3 for sure for another season... stupid Div 1 FC camper sides) - moved Bhutia down to 4 and brought Whitehouse up to 3 - just to try and stop a similar collapse. Anyway, 10 overs down, solid start -

    End of Over 10: 51-0, runrate=5.10
    Croft 5-0-17-0
    Shaw* 25 (28 balls)
    Gray 25 (33 balls)

    However this means very little. These two will need to go on with it and the next 3 (Whitehouse, Bhutia and Mcmillan) need to contribute. Looks a well poised game!

    Hmm I'm not very confident at this stage, not enough wickets to keep me happy.

    End of Over 32: 161-2, runrate=5.03
    Harris 6-0-33-0
    Bhutia* 21 (28 balls)
    Shaw 72 (78 balls)
    Last Wicket: Whitehouse b. Bardle 0 (FOW: 126/2)

    Grr... Shaw! Why?! Mcmillan, who isn't exactly in great form, comes to the crease to join Bhutia, who IS in good form at the moment:

    End of Over 39: 218-3, runrate=5.59
    Ferrell 8-1-44-1
    Bhutia* 49 (49 balls)
    Mcmillan 0 (0 balls)
    Last Wicket: Shaw c. Clemence b. Ferrell 101 (FOW: 218/3)

    Getting pummelled in the final overs.

    The reason I batted Rob is because I didn't have time to look at doing it properly. Full strength side out though so no excuses.

    End of Over 50: 300-3, runrate=6.00
    Clemence 10-0-65-0
    Bhutia* 82 (79 balls)
    Mcmillan 48 (37 balls)
    Last Wicket: Shaw c. Clemence b. Ferrell 101 (FOW: 218/3)

    That concludes what is just about the best batting performance I could have hoped for. Coming against miraculous/sensational bowling attack, and my fragile lineup... could have been ugly.

    Well, PY, you will be happy to hear that you have now faced the members of my squad with full PFL. Bring on the stragglers...

    Speaking of stragglers, Xolani best get out soon or else I'm going to steamroller his face with the heavy roller.

    End of Over 28: 131-0, runrate=4.68, reqrunrate=7.73 (300-3)
    Mulholland 9-1-38-0
    Chanderpaul* 73 (69 balls)
    Xolani 56 (99 balls)

    Xolani's incompetence has played a big role so far. Had he gone out and someone capable of scoring quicker come in, this may be in the bag by now. Stay in, Xolo!

    End of Over 14: 63-5, runrate=4.50, reqrunrate=4.47 (223-8)
    Willetts 7-0-35-3
    Kilkenny* 5 (10 balls)
    Canning 11 (18 balls)

    Last Wicket: Griffin lbw b. Willetts 4 (FOW: 50/5)

    Willetts stepped up and Jeithoon got a couple wickets. Need the spinners to get Canning, reckon he could win it from here.

    EDIT: Or we could the rest of side out:

    W Sishayi to Nizamuddin
    Big appeal... yes, got him! Nizamuddin trying to run that one down to third man has gotten the faintest of edges through to Clayton who flings the ball skyward with a yell!
    14.3 W Sishayi to Farmer
    Don't blame it on the ball shine, don't blame it on the great flight, don't blame it on the crease line, blame it on the googly! That's out!
    14.2 . Sishayi to Farmer
    Sishayi comes around the wicket and lets that one rip! Ball turned square and Farmer had no idea what to do with it. Fantastic bowling.
    14.1 W Sishayi to Kilkenny
    Oh, that is magnificent! Cat-like reactions from first slip to take the catch. They'll be replaying that one a few times in the studio.

    And he's finally out! Now got 4 batsmen left who need to score at 10 an over. This one is lost.

    Can't believe neither Dyke nor Mcmillan could get Xolani out, he's only a quality.

    A very good effort this is by Dyke and Mcmillan... really piling on the pressure.

    End of Over 39: 174-1, runrate=4.46, reqrunrate=11.55 (300-3)
    Mcmillan 10-0-41-0
    Chanderpaul* 99 (99 balls)
    Clemence 1 (4 balls)
    Last Wicket: Xolani Hit Wicket b. Dyke 72 (FOW: 171/1)

    As Pete said... Xolani gone The crowd were on their feet though, what an innings by the youngster... 72 from 131 balls He has contributed more to our cause than any other. I am still not 100% confident though, Pete. It is a road and although I have Mullis bowling at the death, I also have Appleyard, who is a destructive 18yo with so-so PFL and attacking orders.

    Well...

    End of Over 46: 221-2, runrate=4.80, reqrunrate=20.00 (300-3)
    Appleyard 8-0-54-1
    Moodley* 20 (14 balls)
    Clemence 21 (25 balls)
    Last Wicket: Chanderpaul c. Shaw b. Appleyard 106 (FOW: 186/2)

    Feeling a bit more confident now. The equation: 80 runs, 24 balls.
