    Actually I think, at most levels, bowling the overs quickly is a good idea.

    It shows the bowling teams are dictating the pace and there is little more disconcerting in a LO game for a batsman to look up at the clock and realize that 5 overs have been bowled in 10 mins.

    In LO cricket, batsmen often dont mind waiting. Gives them time to prepare and focus.

    Try and play to your strengths rather than thinking on the weakness of the opposite teams. Secondly, the top order has to stick atleast till 2/3rd or 3/4th of the game. Initially play off the ball understand the pitch and then can start scoring.

    Some good advice up there.

    I've spent a lifetime of captaincy in various levels, but to focus on your circumstances, where there are under 16s and over 40s in the same side, its important they bond as a unit. Make sure each player knows what is expected of them in terms of contribution to the team.

    Also, don't underestimate the social barriers with your players [when wide age variances prevail] - our 4th team go for a mid and end of season curry together where the kids and old 'uns get to socialise [to a degree]. If all your players can get along off the pitch, they will back each other up on it.
