CWC Pre-Season: T20 Mini-Series

T20 Trial Match Three
CWC Trial XI A vs CWC Trial XI B

Day 1, Match 3 saw a number of players eager to make an impression before the day was out; and with the B side yet to register a win, stakes were a little higher than one would expect in such a match.

Trial XI A batted first for the 3rd time in succesion, and a slightly tinkered order saw new opening partnership Ames and Townsend looking to dominate from the outset. Brilliant captaincy from Trial B leader JD Hurricane made this a tough ask, rotating his bowlers regularly and taking the initiative away from the batting side. The A's struggled throughout, with only a slight rallying partnership from Monk and Wayne of any note. Spin twins Fagina and Beaver proved a slippery prospect, time and again beating the bat and generally troubling the batsmen. Fast man Morne Morkel was at times unplayable in a ferocious spell, leading the bowlers in limiting Trial XI A to 8/90.

Du toit and Ingram would have been looking for a positive start to a relatively small chase; they had not counted on the pressure created by Wisney and Yamadera with the new ball. The pair led a disciplined attack, with all the bowlers chipping in to create the pressure and captain Lewis the only man unrewarded. Despite the strong bowling performance, defending such a meagre total was always going to be diffuclt; and when Trial B captain JD Hurricane started to settle, deflecting the pressure from his team-mates in the process, the B's looked to be in a good position to record their first victory.

MOTM: JD Hurricane

Day 2 will commence tomorrow, with CWC Trial XI B hosting the A's for the return fixture of 3 games - and eager to settle to score.

Captains, please have your sides in ASAP - if they are not submitted in roughly the next 12 hours, an XI will be selected for you.
Please remember the actual results are of little consequence at the moment, and ensure every player in the squad is getting match time.

MOTM with my truly epic, earthshattering 48*

Though I can't say I've ever opened in my life before; must be the anti-voodoo.

EDIT: Noticed I made a single digit score at 5, indeed.

Great stuff getting this running btw, though could you possibly copy paste the scorecards into the post rather than attaching them? Use code tags.

Better economy, although I did notice Team A failed to score runs efficiently.
