    Matt79's XI won by 9 wickets
    Man of the match is RT.Ponting
    A match of spectacular performances from Matt79's team. First Roberts made the later stars look like fools as they dwindled to 143 for eight. Garner and Bond threatened to do similar things, but an incredible near-double from Ponting ensured a comfortable lead. Sangakkara applied for a promotion, but was turned down, and his second not-out knock was in vain as G.I.Joe's team wilted to surrender the series lead.
    Messi scores on the rebound.

    Matt79's XI won by 3 wickets
    Man of the match is KN.Imran
    Greig surprised with top order wickets as G.I.Joe's lads took it easy, resulting in a follow on and a relatively easy target. So easy that they collapsed to 4/7. Luckily, that was Australian notation, and Waugh combined with Gilchrist, Greig and Imran to provide a remarkable finish reminiscent of Old Trafford '05. Matt79 leads 2-1.

    G.I.Joe's XI won by 10 wickets
    Man of the match is ML.Hayden
    The hosts could avoid a series loss with a victory here, but Hayden and Kallis willed it otherwise. Waugh criminally underused himself as the partnerships mounted up, and G.I.Joe's XI batted for 177 overs to virtually assure themselves of avoided defeat and a live series. Matt79 watched as the first twelve wickets fell for 293, only half of the G.I.Joe total, but Sehwag and Border dug in, batting together for much of the fourth day. Gilchrist could not accelerate sufficiently, though, and with nearly sixty overs to chase the target Hayden and Gavaskar had no problems against a toothless attack. Back to New Zealand we go, with the series tied at two.

    Ponting has me worried. He's made a good score virtually every innings. Good stuff from Bond though.

    G.I.Joe's XI won by 126 runs
    Man of the match is SM.Gavaskar
    Gavaskar's highest score in the series was the rearguard 93 in the Third Test. With Imran striking early in his second spell to reduce the hosts to 77 for three, G.I.Joe needed runs, and Gavaskar provided. The immutable Indian watched Lillee scatter his partners' stumps, but stood with 137 unbeaten runs to his credit, nearly half of the tally of 279. Steve Waugh provided a similar feat, making 104 after coming to the wicket at 27 for three and losing Haynes to a Garner nut, though no other batsman passed 25 for the visitors. With Pietersen supporting Gavaskar in the second innings, the lead ballooned to an effective 300 for two, and though Matt79 pulled back somewhat and were even in with a meagre chance at 184 for one in the final dig, a spitting wicket and a lack of tail-end spunk prevented an impossible chase of 425. 3-2 up for G.I.Joe, who have assured themselves two aims at the title.

    G.I.Joe's XI won by 108 runs
    Man of the match is V.Sehwag
    Putting the tourists in to bat under a typically Yorkshire sky seemed the obvious approach for Border. At lunch, Gavaskar and Hayden camped on 80 for nought, and the hosts looked as flat as they had in the Fourth Test. Fortuitous catching from Sehwag tugged them back in the game, though, and Roberts and Imran ripped out the tail either side of lunch on the second morning. Then followed a Sehwag masterclass, rivalling Gavaskar's effort in the Fifth for innings of the series, which helped Matt79 craft a lead from nowhere despite G.I.Joe's bowlers looking clearly sharper. And it showed. Laxman, who had fallen for a duck in the first innings and averaged below twenty for the series, now ruined Lillee and Greig in a measured assault on 103, and with Mike Hussey blasting 101 for his first series hundred, Pietersen attempted an adventurous declaration to seal the series there and then.

    It worked. Headingly on the fifth day is notorious, and who better to exploit a wearing wicket than the master of variable bounce: Anil Kumble, having taken thirteen wickets in the previous 29 days of cricket, had Ponting caught as the third wicket of the match, and trapped Steve Waugh plumb on 37 to begin the final collapse. At 219 for five, the chase of a further 141 in 40 overs did not look entirely unlikely, but instead, Kumble conquered the lower order before tea and completed the 4-2 victory for G.I.Joe's XI.

    Awesome. Terrific SIM work.
    Happy with a 25% win rate considering I had last pick and I was considered a minnow. If you win 25% of your matches you are definitely not a minnow

    Yeah, agreed. Really enjoyed the summaries of the matches. A fine effort given that vc4 gives no clue as to the day of the test. Thanks Haakon. And excellent concept from Goughy too. The drafting process was very exciting. That is one fine team Matt79 has too. Don't think my team would win the popular vote considering the bowling attacks the other teams have, but as they say, cricket isn't played on paper, its played on a sim

    Awww shucks. Thought my team may just have had Joe's measure, especially after our preliminary meetings, but Joe's boys stood up in the final. Well done to him, his team topped the table, and looked a very strong team throughout the process, so you have to give it up for them as deserving winners. Bloody Gavaskar saved your ass in the 5th test, but my guys finally succumbed to fatigue at the end of a long series in the 6th - a tad disappointing apart from Sehwag.

    The sim was interesting - not sure I agree with all the results it threw up - some pretty useful attacks struggled more than you'd have thought, but then, I suppose they were bowling to some very fine batting line ups.

    For my team, I thought the sim did illustrate the value of having a 6-7-8-9 of Gilchrist, Greig, Imran and Pollock. My bowling, like everyone's, was pretty good, but Greig and especially Imran saved me a lot with their runs.

    It would be interesting to see people's votes based solely on teams on paper, without the sim, and how they matched the sim results. I think the sim captures better aspects like evenness of players - often in VC4, its the second tier players who play a blinder and win a match for you, whereas when looking at paper people tend (in my experience) to focus on the absolute superstars in the team.

    Liked Vimesy's write ups as well. VC4 is fun like that, reconstructing events from it's scorecards. There was a ripper like that in a match earlier where Dravid was out, b. Marshall, 0 (5). You could picture Marshall working him over with an over (well four balls) of unplayable deliveries, before eventually knocking poor Rahul's stumps flying. Would have been a classic over up there with Lillee's real-life effort to Viv.

    Having a look through our performance. I think our batting overall was as good as anyone. Where we struggled was picking guys like Dev and Flintoff who statiscally are poor and therefore don't perform well in sims. Though looking back I probably should have either picked a bowler earlier or pick a better bowler then Flintoff and a keeper like Dhoni who would offer more with the bat. MacGill flopped as well, so that didn't help either.

    Basically had a two man bowling attack in the end and we leaked too many runs from the other ends. I guess it is the whole balance between picking a side for stats and a side that you think will perform in real life. Though others did get that balance better then I did tbh.

    My non-sim assessment:

    Can't speak for my own team, I'd be pretty biased. However I was glad to have arguably the best opening pair possible (Gavaskar and Hayden), and batting down to 7, plus 4 frontline bowlers and a proper 5th bowler in Kallis.

    Toward the end of the draft, I was of the opinion that Matt had a superb team (Thursday Speed Draft), and the sim served to confirm it. It is a lineup that has both the star quotient as well as the depth that is necessary to dig itself out of a hole.

    Goughy had an excellent bowling attack, a quality 4 pronged pace attack. The batting could perhaps have been stronger. Jayasuriya and Yousuf (despite the average) were the weak links IMO.

    Somerset had perhaps the best bowling attack of the lot. Wasim, Waqar, Warne, Murali and Botham is enough to make one cream his pants. Other than the inexplicable lack of turning surfaces, I think the batting was a let down. Barry Richards overcame his lack of test experience to end up second highest run getter, but Inzamam was a major let down against the best attacks (the sim couldn't have scripted it better). Stewart as opener was a smart move, especially since he was relieved of the wicket keeping duties.

    Cool Runnings had the awesome pairing of Sachin and Lara, but their batting seemed to end abruptly at 5. Kapil and Flintoff at 6 and 7 were batting a place too high for my liking. That lineup would own in a real life situation, but more depth might have been needed against the all-time teams they faced. IMO the team needed a lot more specialists to complement Sachin, Lara, Mcgrath and Marshall.

    NUFAN and pskov's teams acquited themselves very well. I was tempted to use the phrase 'punched above their weight', but that would be incorrect. They were indeed quality teams. As NUFAN mentioned, 25% win percentage is nothing to be scoffed at given the opposition they were up against.

    Yeah, VC4, like any quickly completed sim, falls down a bit in capturing things like Freddie's performances not quite being reflected in his stats... All the guys who picked specialist spinners suffered for doing so, despite Joe's explanation that there was no reason for that to have been the case - passing strange that was.

    TBF to me and lack of specialist. The best keeper batsmen were gone before I made a pick. It makes a huge difference not having a top line keeper batsmen in sims that don't take into account keeping. Looking back I should have taken a punt on AB or Hashan Till. If I knew we were using VC4 I would have picked one of those two as my keeper.
