    Division 2 - 4 Day.. Poised for some Fireworks..

    Division 2 - 4DAY is coming up to something really big.. It cant get as tight as it is right now'

    Warwickshire Lead with 63 Points ( 6 - 3 - 3 ( Played - Won - Loss ) )
    Hampshire are tied at 1st place with 63 Points ( 6 - 4 - 2 )
    Western Province are at 2nd place with 59 Points ( 6 - 4 - 2 )
    Karnataka tied at 2nd place with 59 Points ( 6 - 3 - 3 )
    Mumbai 36 Points ( 6 - 2 - 4 )
    Yorkshire 30 Points ( 6 - 2 - 4 )

    Upcoming Games and Predictions

    Round 7

    Hampshire vs Karnataka - Hampshire
    Warwickshire vs Mumbai - Warwickshire
    WP vs Yorkshire - WP

    After that Hampshire is up against Warwickshire who we caused a huge upset win against and then Hampshire is up against WP, who was upset once again by Hampshire.
    So we need to atleast win both those games.. or atleast beat 1 team hopefully Warwickshire.. and hope one of the other teams causes an upset on WP..

    Yorks will probably goto division 3 in four day. I think we can hold onto D2 for one day, however.

    It sure is tight - squad depth could be the key issue here though...

    I think all divisions are fairly close, except for division four where Karachi are unbeaten all other divisions have at least three teams that can seriously consider taking their respective divisions' title. I think none of the teams (there is the odd exception) have a squad that is vastly superior to any other in their division. I'm just wondering if the new salary cap will continue that thread or bridge the gap between the stronger and the weaker sides?

    i was looking good at karnataka until the last 2 matches, poor defeats by warwickshire and mumbai.

    no disrespect to mumbai, we should have beaten them

    it just shows how wide open the league is

    My team is "due". I need an explosion of form in the Four day game, from both a bowler and batsman. Tendulkar is in good nick as always but 1 player isn't enough. He's the only one averaging over 30 in the four day game, and the rest hover between 20-30 getting 50's here and there, nothing outstanding. This is why I can't wait until trading, I guess. Just have toride out the season. This round is make or break for Yorkshire.

    To be honest I'm expecting and would put money on a Warwickshire WP 1/2 finish. Both have played eachother twice with Hampshire and Karnataka still having to play both, and for both to get 2 wins I find a bit tough.

    The order between Warwicksh and WP is a bit sketchy but, although WP have more wins and have beaten Warwicks twice they still lie 4 points behind.

    I tip it to finish

    You had the chance to appoint a physio to lessen the chance of injuries...

    That didn't happen with us. No physio and we never get any injuries. Suddenly I pay for one, and we've had 3 injuries already this season.

    Maybe it's a bug. Don't pay forphysio and it doesn't detect you on the radar in a way, but do it and your team name pops up etc...and does it to mainly those who paid lowest compared to others in the same divison.

    yes?


    No?


    I'll shutup...
