    Dev League rivalries

    There are alot of rivalries within this league - what are they?

    There are some team rivalries (though they're not very clear) and some player rivals. Let's hear your favourites

    For example.. the hippest and most happening Jap on the market, G.K.K. Dobson and his pint sized Marist Ashgrove counterpart Andrew Cloete. Some great duels right there.

    The team rivalries seem odd...

    Some players think their team has a rivalry with one team, while a member of the same team will claim that they dont, and that they infact has a rivalry with another team altogether.

    So I guess their are rivalries between players and teams, and players and players, more than teams and teams.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    It's funny because they're probably both around the same height

    Blue's main rivalry a couple of seasons ago was Black purely because they were our nearest challengers. Since then it's been Red, pureply because they're a bunch of idiots.

    Not much of a 100th wicket.

    Anyway, Red vs Blue games are pretty big, especially with all the banter that went on in the pre-season this time. Plus, pretty much everyone likes to get Rob Dauth out.

    Cunningham vs Wilson?

    Cunningham vs. Wilson isn't fun any more. Cunningham's left Wilson eating dust of late.

    Everybody hurts.. Why Sean why?

    I'll take that as a compliment.. a prized wicket

    Look I just feel guilty scoring runs off Sean Fuller - I feel as though I'm taking advantage of such a "special", "special" boy..

    Neither of them have been as good as last year. Being a Season 8 all-rounder myself, I usually keep track of the others, and Thompson's been comfortably the best this season, though Cunningham has outperformed him with the bat.
