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."

    Only 40-42 will be simmed manually. Most will be autorun. The hardest part will be keeping averages. As such, I won't ask Sam to do it this season, unless he wants to.

    I am proud to be offered the captaincy, and with the experience of some players who are new to the team, feel we have a good chance of building on last season!

    The CWBCC allows a player to choose when he or she is ready to retire. Age is no limitation in our mind.
