definite facepalm moment...
End of Over 29 (Maiden, 4lb). Killers CC: 138-0, runrate=4.76
Overs left today: 81
Hughes* 66 (84 balls)
Siems 61 (90 balls)
Weak opposition, should win comfortably.
Deccy'd 4/452 and have them 1/45 after 23.
Their team is complete **** against me now, at the start of the season we weren't beating them to the extend we are now.
I cant believe it. A respectable-mediocre trainee of mine sold for 12000 at the same time another med-med trainee was going for 10k. Either some lucky guy got a bargain or some fool ripped themselves off.
you should not have bothered trying to read this...
Won my FC.
Posted 4/452, declared and rolled them for 117 and 158.

Carey can come off the stamina net now, I have Caulfield on Strong stamina who could use the 2-3 more weeks required to finish his stamina off.
Now on a 11-0 OD record for the season. I must surely have the weakest of all the Div 5 leagues.

Coming along nicely. Now my first choice keeper batting wise, will probably keep him netted heavily all next season then get him into the first XI the season after.
Pearson, a product of my academy, becomes my 9th player to superb stamina. Sutton is 2 weeks away from becoming the 10th.

Mcclaren* 77 (99 balls)
Breen 40 (79 balls)
Last Wicket: Raisani c. Hai b. Manbodhe 25 (FOW: 48/3)
Good partnership, just a tad slow though.
Only my second xi v my mate, so not gunna be fuming if I lose this.
EDIT: Mcclaren goes, Spillane (former first XI'er) in. Hoping I set him to very attacking. 6 first ball, hoping he shreds Benjamins bowling.

Spillane almost got me home, just shy in the end. Oh well, his second XI is > mine anyway.
Am 2nd in both my Leagues, 2 way race for promotion in each- play main rival on the last day in both cases, which should be interesting.
On the theme of Battrick, 4th Innings totals- what are the general records and what are other users highest/most noteworthy totals?

Vimes tells it how it is:
Have started playing as well. Play in The Netherlands, so unfortunately no FC for me.
Also, I took over the team after week 3 when it had suffered 2 OD losses and 3 BT20 losses. Still haunting me, won't be able to get promotion in either form because of it. Anyway, if you fancy a friendly, just challenge Clydeside CC. And if there's another CW Battrick Cup, count me in.
