    SEMI FINAL RESULTS

    Anchormen lost to Central Districts by 8 WKTS

    Anchormen 242/3: Shaw 71 (110), Gray 66 (91), Bhutia 64* (56) McMillan 29* (23): Hyde 2/45, Shaka 1/37
    Central Districts 244/2 (43.3): Keane 128* (130), Dylan 97 (115): Dyke 1/44

    Rob was clearly hampered by the rigor mortis-like PFL of his bowlers, although the seeds of this defeat were sown by the inability of his top order to break the shackles of Smith's miserly attack - Only Holt (0/66) taking the sort of punishment which Rob needed to hand out if he was going to post a winning score. Kean and Dylan, as they have against HDS and Dwyer, made the eventual margin of defeat look comfortable, though in actual fact one more wicket would probably have done it for Rob.

    Jaffna Jets lost to Asterix XI by 5 Runs

    Asterix XI 190/7: Watkins 81* (107), Steyn 39 (61), Whitehorne 21 (47), Whybrew 19* (29): Sishayi 2/30, Muralitharan 2/40, Willetts 2/41, Jeithoon 1/24
    Jaffna Jets 185 (48.0): Muralitharan 93* (111), Quintin 61 (120), Hilton 20 (19): Dissanayake 4/31 (9), Gradley 2/29, Lancaster 2/45, Whitehorne 2/50 (9)

    Adam's TIE cockiness so nearly cost him a place in the final, but, despite plenty of squeaky-bum moments along the way, class did eventually out. Once again it's obvious, and indeed correct, to credit his Galactico bowling attack with pulling him out of the fire. However, whilst it was his stuttering batting which landed him in the mess in the first place, his batting depth, if not quality, was probably the difference in the end. Indeed, if Chaminda's Feeb tail had been able to bat out their overs, as had Adam's Prof tail, then he would undoubtedly have won. A truly lion-hearted performance from Jaffna, (probably all the more satisfying for Chaminda because it didn't all revolve around Jeithoon(. Without question the match of the Cup, but, as is reflected in the reporter's summary, Adam just about had too much class in all areas.

    FINAL DRAW.

    Central Districts V Asterix XI (Although you're more than welcome to flip it if it suits both of you better for money or ease of viewing etc)

    So we arrive at CW's blue-riband event, with Adam still on course for an unprecedented 5th CW Cup, (Mind you, so were the 3rd and 4th!), and Smith becoming the latest in a recently growing line of young scamps to have a tilt at the title. Whilst I think Smith is better equipped to take on Adam than were Dwyer and Dead Badger before him, it's still a massive task which awaits. Central Districts have, in their previous two matches, shown themselves adept at squeezing the life out of opponents' run-rate, even when they're struggling to find wickets. That, combined with the fact that Adam's batsmen are yet to fully hit their straps, probably provide Smith with his best shot at victory. Yet I firmly believe that if Central Districts are to win, then they will need to restrict Asterix to a score even lower than that which they managed against Jaffna, because if Adam's bowlers get a sniff of Smith's middle order,ůMan it could be proper car-crash!

    My prediction, Adam by 4/5 wickets or 50/60 runs.

    Best of luck to both of you, Trev

    Make that 260 run margin of win for f00lins imo.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Could lose. Have only won two of my last seven matches. Reckon your best chance would be on a flat pitch though, hope your batsmen do well and mine score slowly enough to lose, like my match on Friday (256/10 v 252/4).

    Haven't changed my pitch in about 5 seasons. Has served me well.

    1.3 W Gradley to Dylan
    Great delivery from Gradley, Dylan has a dash at it and finds the edge. Dropped at first slip! No! Yes! No! Lancaster looked to have spilled the catch, but his quick reflexes allowed him to recover and he gobbled up the crumbs after some fumbles. Out!

    2.2 W Lancaster to Keane
    And that's Keane gone! Fine ball from Lancaster, the ball nibbling back off the seam and finding the gap between bat and pad.

    Good game, f00lins.

    Ouch. Still, just 129 runs more to do better than the last schmuck to take on Adam...

    And that's the end of the match. Asterix XI won by 5 wickets.
    Central Districts 42-10
    Asterix XI 43-5

    50 more runs would've helped.

    You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is, never try.



    Meanwhile, imagine we will need BT20 and OD friendlies to keep the money coming in. Anyone keen?

    It quite clear who the 2nd best side in CW is. Once I start cracking 200 in BTRs, I've have the ratings to back it up.

    Weird match. Would've been interesting had you bowled first or if I hadn't bought Midworth last week.
