The AI just tends to bowl whoever has a higher bowling rating
And it worked to my advantage lol.
It's depressing to see...you(the AI) picked the guy and just didn't bowl him. Somehow he made up with the bat.

Pierre made a FC century sometime in 2018-19...possibly this year. Have to check.

Whatever it takes!!!
This is interesting, the area where Permaul grew up in has a lot of people who we call madrasi, assuming that they had fore-parents who were brought from modern-day Chennai

Chennai is a very small part of Tamilnadu though, I would venture most people who emigrated would have been from other places in the state.

Training and physio sessions remain the same. Next match up is on August 13th, 2017, against Windwards Islands in St. Lucia. Windwards are currently in second place in the standings.

Conditions:
Light- good
Bounce- good
Wear- good
Outfield- very slow

With the conditions in mind, I have selected the following team:

1. Guptill (c)
2. Walton
3. Hetmyer
4. Babar
5. Katwaroo +
6. Primus
7. Tanvir
8. Steven Jacobs
9. Emrit
10. Rashid
11. Permaul

Katwaroo replaces Gajanand and takes the gloves from Walton; Hetmyer moves up the order to #3.

Match Report- 4th Match, Guyana v Windwards

Guptill and Bowlers Choke Windwards

Another clinical performance from Guyana with their 3rd win in a row. Guptill continues with his fine form with the bat. Defending a modest score of 146, the Guyanese bowlers once again apply their vice in this tournament.

After winning the toss, Guptill chose to bat first on a pitch that was good for batting but the outfield looked like the grass wasn't cut for a fortnight. It was very slow.
Walton had his first failure with the bat as he made only 1 run, he was trapped LBW by Darren Sammy (who I assumed was the captain of the Windwards...rather odd). Hetmyer, promoted up the order, was in fine nick. He struck 7 boundaries and a maximum for a delightful 43 off 34 balls as Eddie Leie cleaned bowl him to send him back to the dressing room. He added 58 runs with his captain for the second wicket.
Babar Azam came in at #4 and batted with Guptill until the end of the innings. They had to do a lot of running because of the slow outfield. In the last 2 overs, there was the acceleration as 23 came off those overs.
Sammy was the pick of the bowlers for the Windwards taking a solitary wicket for 21 runs off his 4 overs, and Leie with the other wicket conceding 30 runs off his 4 overs.



The opening pair of Shane Watson and Jesse Ryder added a rapid 32 in 4 overs for the 1st wicket, then the latter was struck in front and was adjudged LBW to the impressive offspinner, Steven Jacobs. A mixup between Kamran Akmal and Jesse Ryder resulted in Ryder(35 off 26) being runout. The slow outfield could have been the reason for this misjudgment. This changed the tone of the chase as Akmal tried to make amends for that runout. He found a good partner in Sunil Ambris and together they added 43 for the 5th wicket. The reintroduction of Sohail Tanvir into the attack ended the innings for Ambris. He made a composed 26 off 17 balls. Karma finally came for Kamran; he ran himself out for 32(31). At that stage, they needed 30 in 17 balls. Tanvir conceded 4 runs and took the wicket of Sammy in the penultimate over.
The equation became 19 to get in the last 6 balls. Emrit came in to bowl that over. He removed Rakheem Cornwall in the 2nd ball before there was a minor scare from Kyle Mayers, who struck back-to-back boundaries as they require 11 in 2 balls. Emrit gave away only 1 run in those balls as the win for Guyana was secured. The Windwards fell short of their target by 9 runs.



Summarized scores: Guyana- 146/2 in 20 overs (Guptill 66*, Hetmyer 43; Sammy 1-21, Leie 1-30) beat Windward Islands- 137/8 in 20 overs (Ryder 35, Kamran Akmal 32; Tanvir 2- 24, Emrit 2-32) by 9 runs

Points: Guyana-2 Windwards-0

scoring only 146 in a T20 game having lost only 2 wickets seems odd. Must have been very tough batting conditions.

I think the state of the outfield played a big part in that. Guptill and Babar hardly took any chances up until the end of the innings. Hetmyer's knock was important. Guptill was batting at close to a run-a-ball throughout the partnership with Hety. It was the 12th over when Hetmyer departed, and I thought at that stage that we will be lucky to muster something in the low 130s.

This is the CPL right? SCC, keep an eye on the availability of the players too when you are doing the contracts and stuff.
