The team I coach played a 20/20 game today.
We knew the opposition would not be that strong so I mixed the batting line-up around and we scored 170-2 (with 2 players retired).
When they batted, I decided to give my 2nd string bowlers a go as I was very confident we would not lose.
Anyway, without bowling my usual openers we had them 9-7. I then gave most of the non-bowlers a bowl and we bowled them out for 22. 22 all out with 12 wides, 1 nb and a bye. Thats 8 runs of the bat and 4 of those came from a nick between keeper and slip. I bowled 7 bowlers in 11 overs.
My question is, despite making sure our strongest players didnt bowl we rolled them over, how do you prevent you and your team looking like bullies? How could I have made the game more competetive? or even should I be interested in trying to make more of a game of it?
Looking at the scorecard it appears we tried to destroy them, which is far from the truth. Im just wondering how people think these type of games should be handled.
