    OK, team, this is the big match - I'll do my best behind and in front of the stumps, and am hoping to make some big scores today.

    You're on tour in New Zealand, I believe...and also, I think the suspension would cover all games.

    **Divisional Finals**

    Division 1 - 5D
    Cricket Web 'B' vs. India 'A'
    Cricket Web 'B' 208 & 226
    India A 353 & 82/2

    India A won by 8 wickets

    Man of the match: W Jaffer

    Coach's Comments:
    Not at all a pleasant showing in this crucial games. Samuel Vimes was beautifully yorked early in the game and the middle order never really held up. Fisher played a determined innings at the top, but top edged a cut ultimately. Indeed, it took a fine partnership between Langeveldt and Pratyush to revive the effort to some sort of respectability. The bowling was initially disappointing too, but when the top order was erased, the bowlers came back into the equation with purpose, and Dave ended up with a fantastic spell to wrap things up after Halsey kept the Indians at bay in the middle. The second innings effort unfortunately did not follow on from the inspiring bowling finish, and only Samuel Vimes showed the guts and determination required, with Dave and Halsey showing some glimmer of it too. Basically the batting looked hopeless against the spin on a day 3 pitch. The Indians consequently had no problem in nullifying any interest in tomorrows 5D final, by knocking out the CW 'B' team.

    DIVISION 2 - 5D
    South Africa 'A' vs. Australia 'A'
    Australia 'A' 288 & 358
    South Africa 'A' 288 & 241

    Australia 'A' won by 117 runs

    Man of the match: AR Bichel

    Bichel turns an even contest into an easy win for Australia 'A'.

    _______________________

    DIVISION 1 - OD
    Cricket Web 'A' vs. the Veterans XI
    CRICKET WEB 'A' 219 42.3 overs
    VETERANS XI 222/3 35.0 overs

    Veterans XI won by 7 wickets

    Man of the match: Robin Smith

    Coach's Comments:
    Very, very poor effort here too. The batting started superbly on a flat track and fast outfield. The openers looked in fine touch and the runs were coming at 6 an over, but then the middle order gave out and the innings collapsed in dramatic style. On the bowling end, the Veterans had no problem in dispatching boundaries and raced home to a huge and crushing victory over the As. Four bowlers went for 7+ an over and five for 6+ an over. It was a mismatch of all sorts and a disappointing finish to the season.

    ---

    DIVISION 2 - OD
    New Zealand 'A' vs. England 'A'
    ENGLAND 'A' 199 43.1 overs
    NEW ZEALAND 'A' 200/7 44.0 overs

    New Zealand 'A' won by 3 wickets

    Man of the match: Matthew Walker

    The favourites spiral out of the tournament leaving what seems like a huge mismatch for the final.

    At least I tried

    Good effort from Dave and to a lesser extent Thomas. Also a fine opening effort from Patrick Fisher.

    A dissapointing end to a inconsistant season. thats the only way i can describe it.

    Good effort from Vimes in the second innings to try and give them something decent to chase.

    We have to start looking forward to next season and see if we can be more consistant.

    Thanks for the season guys, will be spending alot of time on my batting so i can try and be a true all rounder during the break. Will be back fired up and ready to go next season.
