Dammit! My poor run of form in the CW Cup continues. Good stuff from the Ponies, with Potgeiter's lethal medium pace winning the match.

Challenged Central Districts.
Group A: Connells vs Whenuapai
A bit of a mismatch, as a weakened Connells side came up against a strong Nibbs outfit. Whenuapai racked up 349 for the loss of only two wickets, Sutton and Newby making centuries at over a run a ball.
In reply, Connells limped to 93ao, with only Adu (46no) holding his head high.
Whenuapai win, NRR +5.12
Group B: Jaffna vs Cymru
This time it was the home team (oops!) who put out a strong, almost 1st choice team, getting put in to bat and scoring 351/1, with centuries from openers Cramar (101) and Quintin (186no).
In reply, Staveley (113) and Noon (108) made the most of the sunshine, putting on 210 runs for the 3rd wicket, but they were always behind the RRR. Once those two fell in quick succession, the rest did a fine impression of the England middle order to fall 103 runs short of the target.
Jaffna win, NRR +2.06
Group C: Magical Ponies vs Withington
My woes continue! This time, a 1st XI Withington side scored too slowly and too collapsedly against a full-strength (I think) Ponies side.
Ponies chased 206 down without much fuss, making it to 207/3 with five full overs to spare.
Ponies win, NRR +0.48
Group D: Alternative XI vs Central Districts
On paper, this should have been a close match. Certainly, the sides put out included plenty of good players, with the match ratings looking pretty tasty for both sides.
Alternative XI's captain, Pete McIntosh, won the toss and decided to have a bat. In PCH conditions on a green pitch, his side made a competitive 275/7, Vincent (84) and King (82no) making most of the runs.
The crowd braced themselves for a stirring Central Districts fightback, but it was not to be, as that man McIntosh left their batting order in tatters, all out for just 50 runs.
Alternative win, NRR +4.50

At the halfway stage in our match Coco's Nuts have knocked up 285/5 against the Jaffna Jets. I'm pretty happy with that, even though I know The Jets aren't playing full-strength. Strydom continued a run of good form to hit 122 and Hutchinson chimed in with 73. The in-form Greene smashed 28 off 17 balls at the end to lift us to the total.
Will need a good bowling performance though and am hoping we can nip out a couple of their better players whose PFL's are a bit low to give us a chance.
Am predicting a Jet's victory in the 47th over. 4th ball
EDIT: We've picked up the somewhat fatigued dangerman Lucas and first drop Clayton in the first over to reduce them to 0/2
