    Sorry I've not been writing (too m)any updates -- tough deadline at work has meant very little slack time. Good to see all four matches arranged and ready to go. Remember that the winner of match 1 will play the winner of match 2 in one SF, and match 3 vs match 4 in t'other, with lower ranked teams getting home advantage.

    Should hopefully be a cracker between my lot and Jaffna. Unfortunately, I won't be watching as I'm on a 100km charity bike ride -- having never gone more than 16miles at once before, I'm going to be walking like John Wayne for a few days!

    Was beaten easily by Andy's team today, which I was expecting. Was happy to get around the 170 mark though and take a couple of wickets in the chase. Thanks for the game mate and all the best for the SF.

    It's been a pleasure taking part in this and being able to post some decent scores against very good teams (thanks to the PFL's taking effect) made it all the more enjoyable from a manager of a lowly team's perspective. Easily the highlight of my season.

    Look forward to keeping an eye on the rest of the games and seeing who wins.

    As I feared, Central Districts are well and truly on top at the moment. I need a miracle to get out of this one. Newby's 120 saved me from complete humilation, but it looks like I will be bowing out here. The current Whenuapai side doesn't have any game breakers that can make the difference at those crucial points in the game. I'm paying for this in today's match.

    End of Over 27: 125-2, runrate=4.63, reqrunrate=3.61 (207-10)
    Scholes 7-0-27-0
    Daly* 44 (75 balls)
    Keane 56 (73 balls)
    Last Wicket: Campbell lbw b. Bowler 0 (FOW: 33/2)

    edit - Daly looks like he has done his dash, and should get out soon, and this will bring in Shaka. If I can get him 4 down, with enough runs to work with, we're a chance. But this bowling lineup, despite featuring a 15/14, 15/11, 13/18, 13/14, and 13/13, is all too often unable to make much progress when it comes to bowling sides out. In fact in one game earlier in the season, my batsmen had amassed about 275, and we'd reduced the opposition to 112/7 and still manage to lose.

    Wow I'm actually doing alright, pretty shocked. Should be a close finish, hopefully Daly gets out soon and Shaka can smack a quick 30 or 40 to put the game away.

    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!

    Ugh the poor stamina on most of my batsmen could prove very costly here, these guys have both hit the wall.

    In the process of getting them all to superb but it's a slow process on a single net when they're all at resp. Paying for poor training structure in my early days I guess, before PFL really mattered.

    37.5 W Bowler to Daly
    And that's out! Shorter ball, cut in the air and straight to Sutton at point!

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS ****ing finally. Shaka the lone hope now, if he doesn't make runs at a good clip it's game over.

    Wow, can't believe that Shaka and Keane went almost straight after I left and the old boys + young gun Mccammon got me up. Great game nibbs, still can't believe I won but I'll take it gleefully.

    Magical Ponies vs Coco's Nuts
    The Ponies brought Coco's Nuts' superb run in this season's competition to an end, with a fairly crushing victory.
    Nuts did well to last all 50 overs after falling to 62/6, but Hutchinson, supported by Faulconbridge, took them to a more respectable 179/9.
    In reply, Ponies cruised to 181 in just 38.5 overs, for the loss of two wickets.
    Ponies win by 8 wickets.

    Jaffna Jets vs Withington Wonderers
    Jaffna played a weak lineup against a strong but slightly knackered Withington side. Needless to say, it was a one-sided fixture, with the visiting team bowling Jaffna out for 60 and then knocking off the required runs without any fuss.
    Withington win by 10 wickets.

    ASC Whenuapai vs Central Districts
    Central Districts came into this clash hoping to get an upset and, on a batting pitch, bowled Whenuapai out for a below-par 207, Lambert taking all three top order wickets en-route to 4/37 from 8.1 overs.
    Could they follow up with a strong batting performance? Yes. Yes they could, Keane and Daly adding 120 steady runs for the third wicket and setting up the win. After a few nervous wickets, McCammon and Herd took them home to a famous victory, knocking out the favourites.
    Central Districts win by 4 wickets.

    Alternative XI vs Connells Estates CC
    The last QF was on rankings the closest, but a close match wasn't to be. Led by a fantastic unbeaten 152 from Coe, Alternative posted 286/2, which was too much for Connells once McIntosh and Shafilshuna had taken out their top order. They limped to 100, and out of the competition.
    Alternative XI win by 186 runs.

    Semi-finals:

    Magical Ponies vs Withington Wonderers
    Three previous matches between two closely-matched teams, with Ponies having won two of them. Hopefully I'll be able to even that up!

    Alternative XI vs Central Districts
    The lowest-ranked team left in the competition take on the conquerors of the highest. Who will win?

    "Draw" was determined by the QF draw, while the lower-ranked teams get home advantage. Challenge away!

    Should me and Tozz really be playing each other twice in the Cup? (unless in the final, of course). Seems like a stupid way to do things in a friendly cup.
