    CW Bar Charity Matches (Season 7/8)

    The CW Bar Charity OD Tournament and CW Bar Batting XI vs. Bowling XI 5D Match

    Note for the captains: Going by the previous thread on these charity matches, Mr Mxyzptlk and ash chaulk have already put their hands up to be 12th man for a game each if required (Mr Mxyzptlk can only be 12th man during the game which he is in the team and age is captaining). If anyone else is willing to volunteer themselves for 12th man for one game they're free to do so , however it's obviously up to the captain to decide in the end.

    If the captains could send Liam the usual information for each game so that the simming can go ahead, that would be great. I understand that he can start simming as early as Thursday and Sunday (I think) at the latest, so the sooner the better, guys! One game will be simmed each day over a five day period.

    Any questions?

    Oh, and if anyone wants to come up with better team names than Squad A and Squad B, that's fine by me.
    REMEMBER: A couple of years in therapy, you'll get over it.

    I assume these games are lighthearted in nature and about everyone having a go?

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Hell yeah! That's actually exactly why I made 'em. To have fun and play with people we don't often play with, and for everyone to get a good couple of games. The whole thing is friendly.

    Oh, yeah, if anyone can let me know if Peter will be around anytime soon for captaincy reasons, that'd be great - if he isn't, I don't know the rest of the (starting) team well enough to know who should be captain.

    Pete usually comes on in internet cafes, so probably not a good idea...Slats (Ian) and Cloete have captained sides before at least. Otherwise Broncoman, cbuts and me are probably the ones who are most involved...

    Edit: I can be 12th man, btw

    Anyway, on to the first games, if the captains can send the info on to Liam asap that would be great. marc and age are up for the first match! I'm not sure how many games ahead you guys usually plan, but with these four OD's you might be best to plan all the teams from the start (and pray for no injuries), if you aren't on every day... but I'm sure you guys would have a better idea of how things work than I would, so I'll leave it up to you from here on in!

    Wickets fell left right and center on the first OD of this four match charity series, with only six players making it into double figures, four of those six belonging to Squad B - however, despite the efforts of Master Blaster, Marc and a strong fightback by Rose and ash chaulk for the ninth wicket which frustrated the Squad A bowlers, it was Age Master and Ian Markus of Squad A who secured a win with an incredible 223 run partnership for the second wicket, more runs than the entire of Squad B.

    The innings ended with the partnership, though - the last eight of the nine wickets to fall went for just 58 runs - only 37 runs were put on the board between the other nine members in the team, Andre and Nath Patrick the men not out.

    In the true spirit of giving everyone a go, every non-keeping player was given a chance with the ball, the pick of them being Broncoman. He more than made up for his short stay at the crease with four wickets in his six overs, even more impressive as he only conceded 20 runs. For Squad A, Patrick and Dave showed their worth with two wickets a piece, each bowling eight influential overs and both finishing with an economy rate of just 2.5.

    Some players from Squad B didn't seem to mind much at their loss, noting that "Ish okay mate, we wonza drunking compizishun anyway, ay?" Spectators report that drinking competitions at the CW Bar after each innings were spontaneous but definitely helped boost the charity money, although it is possible it may have, er, influenced the second innings for some players.
