    Playoff preview:
    5D
    Ind 'A' (6-0-1) v SA 'A' (5-2)
    India have already secured the championship, but the Proteas will be hoping for a win to ensure they finish in 2nd.

    NZ 'A' (4-2-1) v Aus 'A' (3-2-2)
    * A NZ 'A' win and a SA 'A' loss/draw would give NZ 'A' 2nd place.
    * An Aus 'A' win would give Aus 'A' 3rd place.

    Eng 'A' (4-3) v Dev XI (2-5)
    * If Eng 'A' wins and Aus 'A' loses, England 'A' secures 4th place.
    * If Eng 'A' wins and Aus 'A' wins, England 'A' secures 3rd place.
    * If Eng 'A' wins and Aus 'A'/NZ 'A' draw, Eng 'A' secures 3rd place.
    * Dev XI finishs 6th regardless of other results.

    Zim 'A' (1-6) v WI 'A' (1-6)
    * The winner avoids relegation by finishing 7th.
    ------
    OD
    Dev XI (7-0) v Aus 'A' (6-1)
    Coach's comments:
    Aus 'A' is hot on our trails in the OD format. We must either beat Aus 'A' in our OD playoff, or not lose convincingly. The NRR Diff. is just 0.30 at this point, so if we lose, we must ensure that it goes down to the wire.

    Eng 'A' (4-3) v Ind 'A' (3-4)
    Ind 'A' is 0.04 ahead of Eng 'A' in NRR.
    * If Ind 'A' win, Ind 'A' finishes 3rd.
    * If Eng 'A' win, Eng 'A' finishes 3rd.

    SA 'A' (3-4) v WI 'A' (3-4)
    SA 'A' is 0.07 ahead of WI 'A' in NRR.
    * If SA 'A' win, SA 'A' finish 5th.
    * If WI 'A' win, WI 'A' finish 5th.

    NZ 'A' (2-4) v Minnows (0-7)
    The Minnows have already been relegated... it's just about pride now.
    * Unless WI 'A' is whipped beyond belief, NZ 'A' will finish 7th.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    CWXI to play Eng 'A' in 5D playoff

    Mr Mxyzptlk
    Paid the Umpire
    Bugssy
    Marc71178

    R_Powell_fan
    Master Blaster
    Mr Ponting
    Umpire Money *
    Supah Freak

    Neil Pickup and Broncoman are on tour in Asia, so Supah Freak plays his first game this season and Mr Mxyzptlk returns. Since this game is only of academic interest, the order may be shuffled and I will try to allow everyone a shot at the bowling crease.

    I simmed all the 5D playoffs today because I want to speed up the season so it will finish sooner.
    ----------
    India A 265 & 451/9d
    South Africa 'A' 247 & 252

    India A won by 217 runs

    Man of the match: Vijay Bhardwaj

    India A take care of the formalities and win the 5D trophy.
    ----------
    Australia 'A' 372 & 264
    New Zealand 'A' 575/7d & 63/1

    New Zealand 'A' won by 9 wickets

    Man of the match: Rob Nicol

    NZ A stick with the plan and finish with the silver.
    ----------
    England 'A' 393 & 234/4d
    Cricketweb XI Devs 252 & 285

    England 'A' won by 90 runs

    Man of the match: Jamie Troughton

    Coach's comments:
    I shuffled the order to give some players a chance to get some runs. The most noticeable change was batting Bugssy and Marc at 6 and 7, but they were still forced to rescue the innings as usual. Altogether a decent finish to the season, but we desperately need to sort out the bowling during summer training.

    ----------
    West Indies 'A' 145 & 520/8
    Zimbabwe 'A' 340

    West Indies 'A' draw with Zimbabwe 'A'

    Man of the match: Craig Evans

    Zim A do what was required and avoid relegation due to previously beating WI A in their first round matchup.

    Liam, ever thought of opening with me and Bugs?

    We bat well as a pair, and that would ensure wwe get to bat together?

    I'd be too afraid that you guys would get out early and that would more than likely leave the batting to collapse.

    If we had one more consistent bat I might consider it.

    It's all well having little cameos, but without 2 or 3 solid scores, the team's going to struggle.

    Bugs and I did our best, but can't carry 9 others!

    This team reminds me of the Season 1 CW Devs. On that occasion, Neil and Hoggy were basically the only potent bowlers, having to carry the bowling attack except for the odd time or two.

    Coach's comments:
    This is it guys. It now or never. Australia A beat us to the top spot last season, but this season we are not only chasing gold, but also chasing perfection. We can do this. Aus A have only lost to us this season, but they have an excellent batting team. If there was any time that the bowlers need pull it together, it's now.

    The team looks a bit different from the usual. Rik, Master Blaster and Mr Mxyzptlk return to the team. Mr Mxy will open with Bugssy. The purpose of this move is to allow Bugssy to bat as many overs as is possible. Rik has had some success at #3 in the past at various levels of CW cricket. Marc71178 will hopefully lend a solid hand to the fragile middle order.

    With Age and Eyes, we have specialist batting down to #6. Then we have allrounders until #10. Therefore we bat very deep. This tactic is hopefully to ensure that we don't get bowled out within 50 overs. This is because even if we don't win, we can still take the title if we can hold Aus A enough to beat them on NRR.

    Everyone get a good night's rest (and no cheese). Games don't come much bigger than this....
