    The domestic structure works because everyone is even, despite having inflated abilities to that of their real life counterparts.

    It's a pretty simple thing to fix and that is to lower the simming stats of our batsman so they arent super human, but to come up with a fair way of doing it to ensure competitiveness etc... has been the hard part for me.

    Simming stats need to be capped. That's about as much as you can do, relatively fairly. You've probably done this already, but guys shouldn't be averaging more than 50 where ITC is concerned etc.

    Yep. No winning really. I really don't envy you now. Should produce diabolical pitches IMO. Might give the opposition a chance.

    Full stop.

    Cricketweb XI vs England
    @ Pickford Reserve (2nd T20I)

    Scorecard

    Cricketweb XI were expected to make it two wins on the trot in this form against England and continue their unbeaten summer on a nice day at the Pickford Reserve, after Thursday's thumping win the hosts could have been forgiven for expecting this to be a simple case of turning up to win the game. England went in with the one change of Tim Bresnan replacing Ryan Sidebottom while for the home side Dan Smith was included to give Sean Fuller a rest before the one dayers while Nath Patrick earnt his Twenty20 International debut at the expense of Xavier Rose.

    Neil Pickup won the toss and elected to bat and the decision immediately looked a poor one, game one hero Hakon Mork couldn't repeat yesterday's efforts as he fell first ball to Graeme Napier while Dan Smith hit the next ball for six he was out the following delivery also to Napier. David Kearsley joined James Stedman at the crease and the pair put together a mini revival before Kearsley became Napiers third victim, Stedman fell for a patient 20 not long after and Cricketweb XI were well and trully in disarry by this stage, only an entertaining 34 from Sam Morris could save the hosts from total embarassment as no one else in the lower order contributed anything meaningful, the batting display was a far cry from what they had produced on Thursday and their total of all out for 107 was well shot of what was required, Tim Bresnan took three wickets to go with the three that Napier took earler in the innings.

    England were full of confidence ahead of their chase as they could sense their first victory of the tour, Craig Kieswetter looked in good form again as he made a fiery 24 while his opening partner Johnathan Trott practically took the game away from the home side with a graceful 46, Nath Patrick came back after a solid opening spell and pinched a couple of wickets to give the Webheads a sniff, while some tight bowling from part timer Sam Morris saw him apply even more pressure on the England middle order, in the end though there just wasnt enough runs to play with and despite a good showing with the ball the game was done in 16 overs, England reaching 108/5 to record their first win over Cricketweb XI this tour.

    Cricketweb XI 107 (16)
    SC Morris 34(23), JE Stedman 20(17), TT Bresnan 3/24, GR Naiper 3/29

    England 108/5 (16)
    IJL Trott 46(37), C Kieswetter 24(17), NL Patrick 2/9, SC Morris 2/9

    England won by 5 wickets
    Man of the Match: GR Napier (England)
