    Post season let off steam friendlies?

    I know the regular season is usually followed by charity games, as a way to have fun etc, but was wondering if we could perhaps trial a one off friendly round post season to let off steam, let the reserve players have a game, and try 'wacky' XIs we may not otherwise usually attempt in a season?


    Probably redundant, and I'm quite happy with the usual charity series, bowling and batting XIs etc, but thought perhaps something different in terms of regular teams (Black opening the batting with MJ Smith and Davis, for instance. Wicketkeepers doing some bowling, etc etc).

    I like the idea of a dev league All-Star series based on the first club players played for say Timewell in Black, Cloete in Green etc..
    Or maybe rookies - say season 7 rookies season 8 rookies season 9 rookies etc..

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    I'm up for anything...

    Just ask Voltman

    Definately need some Smith (D) vs. Travis grudge-match.

    I like that idea. Good to get a run out for the Green Old Boys

    Don't know if I'd want to play for Red. Would be interesting though.

    Perhaps an all star series between a mix of the bottom 3 sides, vs the top 2 sides.

    It's bad enough having to bat with him at indoor cricket...

    That's it cock. I'm losing 2 foot in height, throwing my bat down in a threatening manner and about to approach a man who owns more than 50 different guns and is nearly twice my height with my pigeon chest puffed out. And very pre-pubescent facial hair.

    Kudos for excellent use of the word cock.

    So long as there's a Batting XI vs Bowling XI FC game (and if possible OD game) at some point then I'm happy. It's quiet at work today so maybe I'll get the teams sorted if Jamee isn't doing this. Other games to go alongside those ones are basically up to the best suggestions!

    Would enjoy a throwback to the old style charity series, Spinners XI, Seamers XI, Allrounders, Wicketkeepers, etc all going up in a little tourney. Will never forget the day Pickup opened the batting and tonned up against the keepers, hahaha
