Black getting carried away, as has been said it was an experimental line-up. Just wait, just wait
It's not like we played anywhere near full strength either. Blackman, Armstrong, Cloete, Borcich (hopefully), Chaulk all to come in...
The one, the only CW Black
Code:47.3 W Coppinger to Heads Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!
I put the there for a reason Daniel...

I'm very very happy with my batting performance there against the masters, was expecting to be decimated and I'm glad that I got two solid scores against a very talented attack.

Top scoring in both innings, I am a gun.
Everything on hold because I have no idea why HODI won't work. I haven't done anything with the programme since I last used it for Charity cricket. Frustrating tstl.
Just managed to fix HODI! Everyone may now rejoice. Matches up within the next 5 hours.

The visiting pros recovered from a questionable start to post a challenging 260-9, led by Lance Klusener's 60. In response CW Black came undone against the legspin of Upul Chandana and despite Andrew Cloete's promising half-ton, they were defeated by 36 runs.

Cricket Web Red vs Cricket Web Colts
Friendly OD @ CW Oval
Ball by Ball
There was lots of movement for the bowlers at CW Oval, and a cracking match ensued between CW Colts and CW Red. Dylan Cole and Myles Hutchinson each scored impressive half-centuries to recovered CW Colts from 60-5 to a competitive score of 233-8. CW Red then struggled to get going against some good new ball bowling. Ultimately Matt Luff accelerated, then he was out just as he looked set for a matchwinning ton. Toward the end Zac Ritchie erupted to score an unbeaten 72, but it was not enough and Reds fell a run short in a thrilling finale.

Friendly OD @ CWBCC Stadium

Pete Young and Liam Camps put CW Green to the sword with an opening stand of 256, setting up an enormous total of 321-6. The Greens then collapsed to the swinging ball under lights, as Andy Maina continued his good form with a 3-wicket haul. Nick Scott briefly threatened to turn his team's fortunes, but a tragic mixup saw him run out when he was 21 short of a century. CW Green were made to settle for 195 in total.

P Young 126, Camps 123
