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...

I am honest, and I'm a liar. I am vital, I am tired.
I am a free man, I am caught. From where I am, I see the top.

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.

Cricket Web Black vs Masters XI
Friendly OD @ Pickford Reserve

CW Black suffered their first defeat of the preseason when an inexperienced team was beaten comfortably by Masters XI. 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.
Cricket Web Colts innings 233-8 (50 overs)

Friendly OD @ CWBCC Stadium
Ball by Ball
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
Cricket Web Green Innings 195 ao (37.5 overs)
