    Such detailed bowling instructions won't work with VC4 unfortunately. Bowling order is the best I can offer you.
    Thanks Liam... That's a shame about the bowling orders... Can I even choose two scenarios? I'm guessing not - in which case the bowling order is:

    Davis (1)
    Wright (2)
    de Bruyn (3)
    Weber (4)
    Ritchie (5)
    Kearsley (6)

    If there's a difference in wickets - a spinning one vs. a seaming one, then make sure Weber and Ritchie get full 4 over complements on a spinning deck and Kearsley takes on a larger role on a non-spinning one... If that's possible.

    Pleased to move into the final of BarStar, not overly surprised by the behaviour of the lady in question either ITBT.

    BarStar Final

    Coming soon..

    Mr. Sheen vs. The Big PerV

    Can the man who keeps Fardingham's bar cleaner than clean defeat the man with an eye for the Ladies and the world's biggest Rolodex in which to keep their numbers?

    Can a man who's been involved in controversy throughout the tournament (Ritchie) defeat a man with the World Record First Pint Average?

    Kearsley has yet to put a foot wrong all tournament, whilst Ritchie's showboating bar style has wow-ed pundits and upset the Tabloids.

    Who will win the competition and the Coveted Vice Captaincy position??? Stay tuned to find out as the Fardingham Bible Network provides live coverage of this auspicious occasion.

    The First Hour

    Welcome to live uninterrupted coverage of the BarStar final. Coming to you, beamed directly from the Fardingham Sports Bar.

    A big crowd has come out to witness this occasion. A small child holds a banner proclaiming "Malone iz inosent!". Of what, this commentator can't say for fear of being held in contempt of court.

    So, Ritchie and Kearsley take up their positions on opposite sides of the room. Ritchie tips a wink to a teenage blonde in the crowd who swoons into a heap on the floor. Ritchie is loving the adulation here.

    The doors of the bar swing open and in walks master of ceremonies Heath Davis. He announces the bar OPEN and the masses make their way in. Is that shamed former Development League player Kexing Su at the back there? I think it is, and he makes a beeline straight to Kearsley, who pours him a pint with aplomb.

    On the other side of the room, Ritchie is regailing a clutch of young beauties with the tale of when he fell asleep hugging the toilet bowl, dreaming of Adam Gilchrist. What's this? Su has split his pint all over Kearsley's mahogany bar stool! Kearsley dashes round with a chamois leather and a can of Pledge and the spill's soon gone.

    Thrilling stuff, this.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    Indeed. Its hard not to be on the edge of one's seat, given the standard of competition.

    The score after the first hour sits at Kearsley (25) Ritchie (43). Ritchie's anecdotes giving him the early lead.

    Wouldn't say I'm much of a story teller, but I'm pleased with the score so far.

    VC4 does not allow you to dictate how many overs each bowler gets, as Liam said you can only list the bowling order you want and hope for the best.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Heath with regard to bowling order you also need to include your backup bowlers, as you can only select the order once. So you need guys like Malone or back specialist incase they bowl in later matches. Not sure if we have any other bowlers in squad outside the starting XI apart from Bichel, Telemachus and Nayak. But all need to be in bowling orders. You need something like the following:

    1. Davis
    2. Wright
    3. Bichel, Telemachus
    4. de Bruyn, Nayak
    5. Weber
    6. Ritchie
    7. Kearsley
    8. Malone

    Crikey. There's a bit more to this than just running in and releasing the ball as quickly as possible it seems. Can't say that I don't need the tips though!!

    The Second Hour

    When we left the BarStar final for the advert break, Ritchie had made the early ground in the contest, but with Kearsley fairly close behind.

    During the ad break, not much has happened, though Kexing Su has continued to provide a party atmosphere by purchasing drink after drink with his hard earned ICL dollars.

    Ritchie appears to be neglecting the bar service at the moment as he leers lustfully at a brunette in a low cut top, whilst it appears that Kearsley has successfully managed to get a grateful punter to fill in a Cocks Club membership form. That'll narrow the gap for him.

    What's this though? It appears Ritchie has launched a gimmick-ridden Happy Hour! This has come from nowhere. Kearsley can only look on enviously as his clientele deserts him for the now jam-picked Ritchie Bar. At the same time, Kexing Su looks dangerously tanked. He appears to have groped what appears to be a canine member of the crowd; seemingly unaware of whether its a dog or a bitch... Maybe he just doesn't care.

    Hang on - the camera bulbs are flashing - it looks like a proper celebrity's on his way in. Yes, its David Boon - obviously trying to steal a march on the Charity tournament organised for later in the week. He's made a bee line to Ritchie's Bar, but surely his presence will detract from Ritchie's own story telling abilities.

    Kearsley is attempting to lure back his lost custom with promises of discount games on the relaid felt on his pool table.

    Its all action here, and as we head into the next advert break, Kearsley is languishing on only 37 points to a stunning surge from Ritchie - 118 points. That's a big gap at this early stage in the competition!

    Apologies. We lost our live feed from Fardingham there due to an electric storm in the area caused by some West Robham players turning up wearing the latest West Robham fashions - Draylon trousers.

    Highlights of the last few hours:

    • Kearsley ran out of Pledge and had to run off to the supermarket
    • Kexing Su got thrown out of the bar by Kearsley for throwing up over master-of-ceremonies Heath Davis
    • Ritchie managed to obtain phone numbers from no less than 6 ladies, although suspicions are that one of them was actually a transexual - shows commitment for the win from Ritchie.


    The Winner, and New Vice Captain of Fardingham Cockatoos is:

    Well played Kearsley, and an excellent way to build team spirit early in the season. Cheers Heath.
