    Lots of batsmen, I'd think. 18yo average batsmen - but make sure you get players with decent technique and endurance. Reid & Bakker are pretty good, but your batting gets downhill quickly after that - James could probably still be salvaged with some technique training. Blade will be a decent allrounder with technique training, so you shouldn't really have trouble with batting depth, maybe get a keeper who can bat (although those are rare, you much more often get a keeper who can bowl!) Maybe a couple of backup bowlers for squad rotation purposes as well, using five bowlers in all games gets your squad tired pretty quickly.

    Very kind to get a walkover in the semi, too.

    26.6 . Newstead to George : [dropped] Uppishly played towards cover, Kutcher dives forward, gets his hands underneath the ball, but then somehow manages to drop the ball.

    So much for the "safe hands" talent...

    Going to have to chase 330 here. Will be legendary.

    49/6 now. Goodbye Swamibapa.

    Scaly made 334/6 - George the wrecker-in-chief, Whiting & Reppion kept things going against my rather poor death bowling. Need to launch into Gibbs and Hogg.

    No offence intended to andruid and Swamibapa CC, but I'm wondering how on earth they beat Scaly?

    All part of the grand match engine conspiracy against teams named Scaly Piscine CC

    It's starting in my game too. 26 runs off 11 balls at one point. McCauley's on 30 (23) and it's 62/1 after 10.

    Blah 2 pops in my seniors, 19yo to capable bowling and a 18yo to ordinary endurance. Pretty pathetic really.

    After Gardiner's epic 9 off his last 19 balls during a Twenty20 when both teams scored 160odd I've a lot of guys on fitness too (which should result in more pops).

    My plan I made for the Scaly matched worked twice as well as I expected it to,It wasn't allmatch engine casuse I pulled the same trick at least twice more to make the semis today and its only just gone pear shaped cos I did not have a check for losing the toss and being stuck in...

    Your 10 and 11 saved you nicely. Wouldn't be surprised if we lost from here tbh.

    Crazy sting from tail.

    Meanwhile at Treacle Mine Road...

    End of over 34 (8 runs) - Dynamo Morpork(206-5). 129 runs required from 16 overs. RR 6.06 RRR 8.06
    J. Jones 26 (21b) , W. Newstead 31 (32b) , R. Moysey 7-0-43-1

    Last recognised batsmen in. Jones has been relegated on the back of a number of poor performances, doing ok now. Still, Scaly were 217-3 at this stage.
