    At the halfway point:

    Cymru Gurgitators: 332/2 (Greening 196*, Noon 106*)

    At least Greening took pity on us in the last over and took 2 singles to stay under 200.

    I don't have to worry about getting within 1.whatever it was of that

    If only these two could score another 180 or so runs...

    Not sure if anyone will answer this before the end of the game, but am I correct in thinking we have to pass 254 to get through? If I am then we're 1/2 a chance...

    Gave Leverock CC a decent beating. Batty took 4.3 - 0 - 4 - 5 to tear out the Leverock tail.

    And that's the end of the match. Cymru Gurgitaters won by 41 runs.
    Cymru Gurgitaters 332-2
    Coco's Nuts 291-3

    Pretty happy with that as I think we still get through and I never expected us to score that total.

    Quite correct, and you're through!

    I'll write more later, but the final standings are:

    Code:
    Group A	               	W	T	L	Pts	 NRR
    ASC Whenuapai   	2	0	0	4	 11.44
    Connells Estates CC	1	0	1	2	- 0.92
    Leverock CC     	0	0	2	0	-10.52
    
    Group B                	W	T	L	Pts	 NRR
    Jaffna Jets     	1	0	1	2	 1.00
    Coco's Nuts     	1	0	1	2	 0.24
    Cymru Gurgitators	1	0	1	2	-1.24
    
    Group C                	W	T	L	Pts	 NRR
    Magical Ponies     	2	0	0	4	 6.09
    Withington Wonderers	1	0	1	2	 2.44
    Dee Crew          	0	0	2	0	-8.53
    
    Group D			W	T	L	Pts	 NRR
    Alternative XI      	2	0	0	4	 6.62
    Central Districts	1	0	1	2	-3.65
    Tawonga Tigers     	0	0	2	0	-2.97
    Only one really tight group, that sees Trev making a surprise exit from the competition. QF draw to follow...

    Haha, what a draw.

    Sorry, but somebody had to get him. Blame the Excel random number generator!

    Whenuapai are a very beatable side these days. We've got depth, but no boom players at the moment.

    Well Done Coco, great performance to get so close to such a mamouth total, you deserve to go through.

    PFL has made a bit of a mockery of the CW Cup for me, and pretty much of the whole of my season. some of the bowlers never seem to be above Fresh, despite never playing FC. Already relegated in FC and BT20, and staring down the barrel in OD.

    Don't have the cash to improve, or more importantly, expand the squad, and the more I lose the lower my crowds, and the less likely it is that I'll ever have the money to be competitive again. Obviously most of this is down to me not being a very good manager, as other people are coping okay with it, but can't help feeling shafted by the changes all the same. The game is supposed to be tough, but not impossible!

    My main beef with PFL is that my batsmen can get huge hundreds, and quite often two or three a week of them, but hardly ever seem to drop below Invigorated . On the other hand the bowlers are never fit, no matter how much I rotate them or trim their nets back. And nearly all my squad has Strong or Sup Stam too!

    Hard to see past Nibbs for the title now, though the winner of the Jaffna/Withington clash could still have a big say. Personally disappointing, but great to see some new teams in the latter stages of the Cup, seems like ages since there was a new semi-finalist - Though that's probably got more to do with my beer-addled memory than any statistical reality!

    Later, Scaly...I mean Trev

    Thanks mate, thanks very much for the game too it was great to play against some very good teams in the Cup.

    Personally I'm glad of the timing of this CW cup as it's given me a chance to get more than 20 against you guys with the PFL's having such an effect haha I'm not sure how I'll handle it when I have to deal with it myself. 4 bots in my OD league this season has meant not a lot of management is required on my part. Hopefully that'll change next season as it's a bit boring. Don't have the depth to deal with it week-to-week though.

    That and I'm pretty sure a 20ao isn't far away in this comp...

    It's been a decent cup so far, thanks mainly to the battles in your group!

    Nicely done Coco Man -- if you get through to the semi's, are you going to go Coco Loco?!

    Nicely done Trev, too -- always gracious in defeat

    PFLs are shagging me too -- and that's having spent most of the season with seven bowlers on rotation. Still, a bit of wheeling and dealing now sees me with four players over 100k BTR, which is 3 more than last season! Unfortunately, 3 of them are all-rounders, but they give me the space for an extra bowler and batsmen...once I can train them up.
