CW Battrick Cup (season 13)

This week's fixtures:

Group A: Leverock CC (6550) vs Connells Estates CC (384)
Winner qualifies.

Group B: Coco's Nuts (6533) vs Cymru Gurgitators (3688)
Cymru needs a win with +1.56 NRR to go through, at Coco's expense. Any less and they stay bottom on NRR.

Group C: Dee Crew (11217) vs Magical Ponies (5409)
To progress, Dee Crew need to hand Magical Ponies a fairly big beating.

Group D: Tawonga Tigers (4929) vs Alternative XI (4412)
A Tawonga win, unless it's an absolute kicking, should see them through at Central Districts' expense.

Again, home team challenges, challenge to be made by midnight on Thursday (BT-England time), as it's late on Tuesday already.

Whenuapai and Withington have qualified, while Alternative XI would have to suffer an absolute thrashing to avoid making it through.

I'll make the QF draw after the last batch of games -- it'll be the 1st placed teams in one pot, the 2nd placed ones in another, with teams from the same group being prohibited from playing each other. 1st placed teams will get home advantage.

SFs will be winners of QF1 vs winners of QF2 and QF3 vs QF4. To spice it up a little, lower-ranked teams will get home advantage. Same for the final.

Knowing my luck, I'll get Whenuapai next round.

At the halfway point:

Cymru Gurgitators: 332/2 (Greening 196*, Noon 106*)

At least Greening took pity on us in the last over and took 2 singles to stay under 200.

I don't have to worry about getting within 1.whatever it was of that :sleep:

Not sure if anyone will answer this before the end of the game, but am I correct in thinking we have to pass 254 to get through? If I am then we're 1/2 a chance...

And that's the end of the match. Cymru Gurgitaters won by 41 runs.
Cymru Gurgitaters 332-2
Coco's Nuts 291-3

Pretty happy with that as I think we still get through and I never expected us to score that total.

Quite correct, and you're through!

Whenuapai are a very beatable side these days. We've got depth, but no boom players at the moment.
