Norwood's on Fire
Ah hit some runs, why didn't I get a bowl? Clearly my stronger suit in the long-form.

International Debutant
Fairly certain I should be opening instead of Towns Hak, he's been playing as a #3 for us all season in the longer format.

Also good to see Edfield through even if we couldn't quite finish it off

ITC occasionally has some problems with printing scorecards. The ball-by-ball has the correct one, I think.

Also: Edfield (projected second-innings runs: 271, target to win: 203) beat Stedingham by decision.


Hall of Fame Member
Gough in some fearsome form with the bat and ball. Great player.
Cheers, appreciate it. Enjoying scoring some runs.

Campione! Campione! Ole ole ole!

Good stuff from Pickford. Wilson and Konig the stars of the season for us, I reckon.

Hope we can continue the form in the finals.
What a difference a season makes. Pickford have gone from terrible to champions. Fantastic performenace by Baby Black and guests :ph34r:

EDIT- Despite not following closely and not posting often, it is cool to have Grade back and check in on.

I am God. Well, not really, but still a pretty awesome performance. Is there any individual stats for grade? My FC batting must be pretty respectful.


International 12th Man
Introducing, in the Foxes corner, Manan Shah! In the Seahawks corner, Towns, Fjermestad, Rai, Raftery, Borcich, Clapham. Manuel Ramprakash Trophy taking away all the Foxes players. This promises to be an exciting match!

The Semi Final Thing brought to you by extreme boredom and Weet-Bix.

The Toss was won by an exuberant Edfield Captain and they chose to bat first, because, well, that's what you do.

Edfield Seahawks First Innings All-out for 187 (50.1)
Fjermestad 71, Teisierre 4/39

With six times the amount of talent available at Edfields greasy fingers, you'd have thought they'd have performed better than this. Fjermestad proving that runs were there to be made, however the rest of Edfield apparently wanted to watch him do all the work. To be fair all the Foxes bowlers chipped in to restrict the Seahawks. Now we have the test, can the Foxes withstand the mighty bowling attack about to be hurled at them? Stay Tuned.

Ok, that was uncomfortable.

Nixonstown Foxes First Innings All-out for 197 (62.0)
Grierson 50, Clapham 5/59

It looked promising for a while, if you'll check the scorecard later, but ultimately, the Foxes collapsed. Certainly they could've pushed on for a larger lead, but they just couldn't bat. Plain and simple.Clapham destroyed the tail, and from then on it was Edfields second innings, which we will now look at.

Edfield Seahawks Second Innings All-out for 305 (79.2)
Rai 102, Raftery 83, Flanaghan 5/74

This was better. Fjermestad still wanted to hit the cover off the ball, but when he fell for a quickfire 46, Rai and Raftery obviously decided they'd actually play the ball on it's merits. Who knew, it worked. Raftery also looked particularly focused as the chant "Raferty" was, well, chanted by 17 drunk members of the crowd. In the end they set up a rather decent total and a chase of 296.

Nixonstown Foxes Second Innings All-out for 64 (25.0)
Dalton 23*, Borcich 6/29

Borcich, obviously deciding he might actually have to so something this game to make himself look good, boasted to Rai & Raftery that after their hard work they wouldn't have to bowl a ball in the second innings. Obviously needing to live up to his own expectations, the fire in Borcich's eye was enough to scare Riaz Wajid, who ran himself out without facing a ball. Fear is a powerful motivator. The 26 run last wicket stand being the only hurdle faced by a rampaging Borcich. Clapham disappointed not to take the tail again.

Edfield Seahawks win by 231 runs.
Man of the Match. DK Rai

And there you have it. The Seahawks to face a dominant looking Panthers side tomorrow in the Grand Final. An exciting tussle to be sure. Stay tuned.

Pleased to have picked up wickets along the way, gutted at the 5 dropped 2nd innings catches though.
