He's a gun. 44 pot will go for hundreds of ks, and you might get more given his keeping potential
Convinced me told hold onto him at least for now... but have so many projects at the moment, see how his progress goes over the next few weeks. Do wish he had a touch more stamina and fielding...

@Magrat Garlick - let me know if you would like help with setting up competition and if there is a specific structure to implement (latter part a question to all). Have Friday off so happy to set it up and send invites from Friday if needed

Starting the signup for CW Championship season five (T20)

Probably be some large groups followed by a short knockout. No promotion/relegation.
Had meant to write a 2nd message earlier but got sidetracked.

Possible proposal

2 groups of 9 (double round-robin?)
2nd and 3rd qualify for QF
group winners qualify directly for SF


Could also have mini playoffs between 4th/5th placed sides, 6th/7th placed sides and 8th/9th placed sides during the knockout stages to determine seedings for the next T20 competition.

E.g.

Group A 4th v Group B 5th
Group B 5th v Group A 4th

Winner of both ties go to a 'final'
Loser of both ties go to a 'playoff' to determine the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th seeds for the T20 comp after this one.

Not sure exactly how rating points stand currently for T20 but qualification line possibly altered if its clear there are 6 teams ahead of the rest for example - as at that point qualification could become predictable early if it goes to form - although being the shortest format perhaps the T20s can cause some shocks!

E.g. an alternative could be

2 groups of 9 (double round-robin?)

Top 2 qualify automatically for 2nd stage of knockouts (last 8)
3rd to 6th qualify for 1st stage of knockouts

7th, 8th and 9th from Group A could play 7th, 8th and 9th from Group B concurrent to knockout stage


Thoughts/alternatives?

I like the 2 groups of 9 seeded based on CW rankings, but for KO stage can I suggest:

Eliminators
1st Group A vs 2nd Group B
1st Group B vs 2nd Group A
Winners to Semi-Finals

1st Eliminator Loser vs 3rd Group B
2nd Eliminator Loser vs 3rd Group A
Winners to Semi-Finals

Semi-Finals, Finals.

Gives 1st and 2nd place 2 cracks at making the Semi Finals, while 3rd place gets one go. So it's an incentive to finish in the Top 2 of either group, while actually keeping 6 teams in the running for the title.

The remaining 12 teams can play similar KO stages, with 6 teams in each. So we can go Gold, Silver and Bronze Champions.
