    I'd be hoping that this could get our minds off that stuff.

    So we have 23 players so far...

    I'm not sure if Liam wants to play? Anyway, we'll need a couple of volunteers to be 12th man in the first game as 23 players is obviously already past the two teams of 11. Now, to split those teams evenly (hopefully with an even spread of CW colours in each team)... anyone willing to help me out here?

    I'll take a game. However, I'd also be happy to carry drinks.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Note that these games won't be played until the end of the season for obvious reasons.

    Mr Mxyzptlk (12th Man)

    One more volunteer needed for the other 12th Man position and we can start dividing the players up (although I guess this can be done at the end of the season, organised by final rankings or something of the sort).

    So, what length of game should be played, or should these teams play more than one match?

    After a little bit of looking around, it looks like we have seven players from each of Red and Black and five from each of Blue and Green. We should try for a 4-3-3-2 mix for each team if we can pull it off with the teams staying fairly even.

    On a sidenote, what do people think of another charity match, this time a 'Champions Charity Match' where all the 11 top ranked bowlers and 11 top ranked batsmen are spread into two teams for a truly top class match and a showcasing of the best of the best CW Dev League has to offer?

    How about the 11 batsmen play the 11 bowlers?

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Either way he'd have to find someone who's a worse batsman than he.
