Vimes tells it how it is:
Carvosso popped to accomplished bowling.
Blackcaps need a win against Gongbeaters and expect Mullet Men lose to The Mount CC for a top position in the T20 league. Blackcaps are looking for a big win against Gongbeaters as the coach of Blackcaps feel that this is the perfect time to improve the RR and the end the season in style.
Its been a disappointing week for Blackcaps. But, Raghav is confident that Blackcaps will bounce back and will be back to winning ways!

Not a single pop and an instant fire youth pull... dire
CW Colts Wicketpeeper and Middle order batsman.
Stunning 3rd wicket partnership of 192 runs between Jessie Hogg & Travis Shelley helped Blackcaps to win against Gongbeaters by 149 runs in the final T20 match of the T20 league.
Blackcaps electing to bat lost two early wickets in the form of Roche & Walkley. But Travis & Hogg picked up the RR by scoring 11 an over since then. Hogg was notout on 91*(51) and Shelley scored 102 from just 60 balls.
Even though Blackcaps won the match by 149 runs, it was not enough for them to top the table as Mount CC was not able to win against Mullet Men. So, Blackcaps has to settle for a 2nd position in the T20 league table.
Blackcaps vs Gongbeaters
Selling two of my veteran players if anybody is interested, they're rather crap but have performed decently over the years.

Close got 4/10 in his last game. Won the T20 league and had the highest run scorer and highest wicket taker. I have a must win game tomorrow to win the youth league and promote.
Unfortunately my senior team managed to completely **** up their chances of winning the league after losing three straight games, all of which should have been wins.
Does anyone know in FTP how to tell which players will do better batting/bowling on aggressive, normal and defensive?
Is it to do with power? Endurance? Experience?

Normally if they have crap technique I'll put them on defensive, especially if it's a batting pitch. High technique/power, or a pitch suited to their bowling style can be on aggressive. It's worked for me most of the time.
Once again I got totally screwed over in the T20, match ratings were 13k+ the team i was facing, they needed 22 to win in the last over and they got it on the last ball against a bowler bowling defensive orders. Fairly ridiculous tbh
And because of it I took second in the league!
