Yea the 3 down 1 up system sucks

ZCC have secured their spot in Div 2 across all formats so this week is just dead rubbers. We could get higher finishes and prize money if we push for wins, but I'm opting for IGT by resting Sajith from senior games and giving our 15 YO trainee a Dev debut.

FHK have locked up promotion to SOD Div 1 in dominant fashion and should stay in T20 Div 2 with some decent prize money. The Dev Div 2 spot is at risk - we're going in full strength and hoping for the best!

Have secured moving up to div 2 for SOD. Hoping to secure div 2 T20, ahead but could still slip up. Already secured moving up in dev to div1. Hopefully monies pour in next season!

FHK have avoided relegation from Dev Div 2 by just 2 points! Successful season overall for both sides, let's hope we can cap it off with some CWC silverware.

Will issue a challenge to Astronauts later today. TBI vs ZCC is scheduled for thursday.

@Jarquis FHK have challenged the Astronauts for Thursday 08:00 in game time

Excellent win by ZCC over AXI in a SOD Friendly today. Both teams clocking in at 60k, ZCC testing out a new combination in the absence of Sajith D Estandau. Abdul Younis extremely impressive with 86 runs and 0/18 from 4 overs.

Thanks for the game @ataraxia!

AXI manage to squeak into T20 div 1, coming a day after winning a T20 against a 72K team.

I think a big part of this team's success in T20s is opening with two pinch-hitters (and an unhittable bowling lineup...). It doesn't seem like that's a strategy which would work on a simulation, but given just how aggressive powerplay bowling orders must be, I find it effective. (though I do have a massive advantage being in Asia) Just putting that out there.

In general - are financial situations tough for y'all? I've got 4M balance (1.8M from the recent selling, admittedly) and been finding it a breeze. Even if not, don't lose hope; one can still fashion a side from low-cost and homegrown players, as evidenced by FHK.

ZCC have spent loads lately but i think we can cover our costs if we need to. EurAfrica is tough, we've had to spend just to stay competitive in Div 2.

FHK have more money than I know what to do with tbh. I might eventually swap roles and let FHK buy players while forcing ZCC into home grown austerity measures lol.
