    End of Over 15: 24-10, runrate=1.60
    Holt 8-2-16-3
    Forrest* 10 (30 balls)

    Lambert took a Central Districts record of 7/3, beating the previous best of 7/15 from Hodgey.
    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!

    And that's the end of the match. Opening Balance won by 10 wickets.
    Deckers dominators 20-10
    Opening Balance 23-0

    15 overs (H)

    Hamlin & NIghtingale took 4 & 5 respectively, the other wicket being a runout.

    Just noticed this pop:

    Bryan Hamilton - 18 yo, BT Rating=17,330
    RH Batsman, RFM Bowler, worthless batting form, feeble bowling form, energetic fitness.
    A defensive player with woeful leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Stamina: strong Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: respectable Concentration: competent
    Bowling: superb Consistency: competent
    Fielding: competent

    Get back to me when you get some secondaries, Bondy.
    Following on from this, does anyone have any ideas on how I could boost his secondaries more quickly than his primaries?

    His secondaries will pop every 3 weeks.

    Even at 21? That's not too shabby. Will have to consider my net usage as I don't have any spare at the moment, but his secondaries really are quite poor.

    Secondaries pop faster as players get older.

    Probably worth it as he's an all-rounder so you'll be getting double the value for 2 lots of secondary pops.

    Bought this mutant for under 15m:

    Alan Hitchen - 25 yo, BT Rating=254,169
    RH Batsman, RH Spin Bowler, respectable batting form, woeful bowling form, invigorated fitness.
    A defensive player with feeble leadership skills and quality experience.
    Stamina: superb Wicket Keeping: woeful
    Batting: miraculous Concentration: elite
    Bowling: miraculous Consistency: elite
    Fielding: remarkable

    Wages a mere 189k. (y) Saw a near-identical player with higher wages go for 21m recently though.

    Puts your wage bill up near 700k? Not a bad effort.

    Yeah, just under. Got enough cash to survive though. With Watkins and Whitehorne both nearing 30 I'll be forced to have an end of season sale, so this will probably be my last proper season.

    If you're not planning on rebuilding again, why bother selling them when they've still got years in them?

    Just let them sit imo.

    Suffered my first ever skill drop this week -- Hayward, a 33yo, dropped a level in stamina.

    All my first season stalwarts are 28+...I've got a hell of a lot of rebuilding to do over the next few seasons!

    End of Over 39 (2 runs). Delsquidlys: 138-4, runrate=3.54 (1st Inn: 185-10)
    Trail by 78 runs. (Central Districts 401-7 dec)
    Holt 11-2-32-0
    Whiting* 1 (5 balls)
    Ottley 21 (25 balls)
    Last Wicket: Yarwood c & b. Lambert 37 (FOW: 136/4)

    Getting there. With over 25 overs left I'm hoping for a win today.
