    Jakester has more than 350 posts in here I reckon at least 90% are score updates or him creaming over his spinner. Then 9% can be crap advice.

    Another week of no trainee pops.

    My team looks set on winning its OD Div V league. I am 0.90 points off being auto-promoted. If I go up, well it will make next season very interesting.

    Some poor selection decisions this week in my 3Day league. Selected my 1st choice team against the strongest team in the league. Issue is my opposition is happy in securing a draw and will simply bat and bat for hours. Really screwed my PFL up as they racked up over 600 runs in the 2nd innings.

    I think he provides a valuable service. I couldn't sleep last night because I was worried about how his team were doing.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    No pops either.

    And Marc, I believe there's pills for that.

    Viagra.

    Eamonn Johal - 21 yo, BT Rating=150,149, Wage=49,102
    A defensive RH batsman and a defensive RM bowler. He has mediocre leadership skills and mediocre experience. He has no preference and no trait.
    He currently has superb batting form, superb bowling form and fresh fitness.
    Stamina: superb Wicket Keeping: mediocre
    Batting: wonderful Concentration: exceptional
    Bowling: exquisite Consistency: exquisite
    Fielding: strong

    Sexah. Goes from 2 bowling to 1 bat 1 bowl. Only one more batting level, but a couple more bowling.

    End of Over 8: 24-2, runrate=3.00, reqrunrate=5.36 (248-8)
    Khulekani 4-0-12-0
    Siems* 11 (24 balls)
    Mulvaney 1 (11 balls)
    Last Wicket: Fillery Run Out 0 (FOW: 16/2)

    Should be able to chase down Noble One's score this time, will rage if we can't knock off his 248.

    EDIT:

    42.5 W Fillery to Fuller
    Fantastic bowling. The arm ball beats Fuller and hits his pad right in front of middle. The umpire raises the finger straight away.
    42.4 W Fillery to Naseem
    Attempted flick off his legs, but makes no contact and it cannons into leg stump.
    42.3 W Fillery to Carey
    A quicker ball from Fillery suprises Carey as he tries to sweep, and he's caught right in front of his middle stump, lovely piece of bowling.

    Fillery <33

    A slow but steady partnership bringing us back in this. Now they can hopefully have a hit and get us home.

    Mulvaney gone on the second ball of the 40th (or is that 41st?). Should be a close finish.

    And that's the end of the match. Canterbury Chargers won by 41 runs.
    Canterbury Chargers 248-8
    Killers CC 207-10


    End of Over 48: 207-10, runrate=4.31
    Khulekani 9-0-31-3
    Francois* 11 (19 balls)

    Eh good stuff. I need to strengthen my batting more than anything to be successful against teams a bit better than mine. Vidale is my only batting trainee (with Sethuraman keeping but getting batting too), so until I can get a new batting trainee in and trained I'm pretty screwed seeing as I have no money.
