    Too late. Meh.
    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!

    I guess not! Just my luck to have the only potentially contentious pairing (rankings-wise) in the competition contesting the final

    I thought I'd try to even the field a bit by giving lower-ranked teams home advantage wherever possible. If you disliked that (or liked it!), shout and we'll see about changing it next time...depending on whoever organises it, anyway.

    Reports...

    Magical Ponies vs Withington Wonderers
    A rather knackered and demoralised but otherwise full-strength Withington side made the trip halfway across the world to Pleasure Town. The night before the game, McGregor, Sandwith and Fish enjoyed a couple of beers with old foes Canning and Tedstone...were they spiked?
    Certainly, it was a rather limp-wristed performance from the Withington batting order, #7 Baba coming in with the score on just 60. Still, in partnership with Mulryne and then the tail, he managed to restore some respectability, his battling 68no (from 78 balls) dragging his team to 163ao from 40 overs.
    Tedstone (10-0-40-4) had the better stats, but it was MOTM Canning (5-0-24-3) who ripped the heart out of the Withington batting order.
    So to the 2nd innings, with Gibb and Illett roaring in...but to no avail. Despite an early wicket and then a John double in the 20th over, the Ponies cruised to their target with 11 overs to spare. Hurren and Terry made the bulk of the runs, but it was that man Canning who sealed the deal.
    Magical Ponies win by 6 wickets

    Alternative XI vs Central Districts
    These two teams must be bored of facing each other now!
    Back to the Alternative XI CG, where the pitch was green and the sun was shining. A fine place for a day's cricket. McIntosh, the home captain, duly won the toss and decided to have a bat. At 19/3, he wasn't looking so clever, but a HUGE stand from Handbury and centurion King corrected that.
    It was only some fine bowling in the death overs that denied Alternative XI a 250+ total -- when Lambert leapt like a salmon to his left to finally have King caught-and-bowled, it was 218ao from just over 47 overs.
    Despite a steady trickle wickets from captain McIntosh early on, Central Districts stayed well on top of the run rate, Keane heading serenely to his own century. Once Shaka joined him with the score 48/3, it all started looking rather easy.
    Districts made it to 222 from 39 overs, and thence to the final. Keane (103no) was robbed of the MOTM trophy, a somewhat inebriated commentating team instead giving it to Shaka (86no and 1/44).
    Central Districts win by 7 wickets

    Indeed. Slightly worrying, am definitely stronger in bowling than batting. Should hopefully reel it in in the next set of ten though.

    Potters and Niz dragged him back a bit, but I really need a wicket. I've got Canning and Potters bowling at the death so the last ten should bring a few wickets, but I could really do with at least one of these out soon.

    End of Over 11: 50-0, runrate=4.55, reqrunrate=5.62 (268-4)
    Lambert 6-0-35-0
    Burger* 19 (31 balls)
    Hurren 28 (36 balls)

    Canning and Potters did a decent job keeping them down, but I still think it's about 30-40 runs too much. Solid start at least, I just need Burger to up his run rate a bit.

    Edit:

    End of Over 20: 100-0, runrate=5.00, reqrunrate=5.63 (268-4)
    Shaka 5-0-16-0
    Hurren* 51 (63 balls)
    Burger 46 (58 balls)

    Pretty sure this is my highest opening partnership this season, Hurren not doing his normal thing of batting way, way too slowly. Going amazingly well for a superb/strong batsman.

    I don't know who to support.

    Just an onlooker.

    Good batting here from Ponies, hopefully setting up to score quicker soon.

    Yes, I am following this game on BT, FTR.

    Wicket.

    Terry is your best bat, right?

    Yeah, Terry's my best, but he's only better than Burger by two levels of concentration (sens/mast vs. sens/sens). Terry can sometimes bat a bit too defensively though, hope that doesn't happen today. Canning coming in at 5 is my third best bat and he scores pretty quickly so I'm glad with the platform we've got atm.

    End of Over 38: 194-1, runrate=5.11, reqrunrate=6.25 (268-4)
    Shaka 9-0-27-0
    Burger* 89 (107 balls)
    Terry 42 (49 balls)
    Last Wicket: Hurren b. Mccammon 55 (FOW: 109/1)

    Definitely time to get a move on. What were there settings?

    Hopefully someone can attack and score quickly, and if it's not these two, one of them gets out.
