Me 1st at home to 4th in a match where I should win especially with almost all at sublime. Gone with 4 bowlers and could add a 5th in-game if needed. Weather is confusing me. On my dusty I have Sunny followed by 2 days of partly cloudy & humid. Would you bat or bowl ?

Definitely bat.

Villain1982 v BATTY SHRIMPERS

We take on the side in 4th today, and we already have a 15 point lead at the top. Oppo looks to be struggling a bit PFL wise, so I wonder if he may throw the game. With that in mind we've rested Lindop, everyone else plays though,

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DIBS DIPPERS v Huzzershire Nomads CC

Mrs BB takes on the side in 5th, and she has a 17 point lead after the 1st 2 games. Bowlers are not too bad PFL wise (all Energetic), so she's left a couple out, but should have too much batting for the oppo.

ShrimperZone CC v Dobcross

The reigning FC champions (and OD runners up) visit Garon Park, a frighteningly good team (5 players of 190k+) ranked 1 in England and 4 in the world. The manager was going to quit this season but unfortunately decided to keep going!

If I'm going to get anything out of this game I'll need to bat first and even that may not be enough.

Just noticed that of his 10 first teamers, there's a 24yo, a 28yo and everyone else is 30+. No wonder he was thinking about quitting, that's a massive rebuild job!

Toss lost. However Barrowdale gives us a perfect start.

End of Over 2 (Maiden). Dobcross: 0-1, runrate=0.00
Overs left today: 108
Barrowdale 1-1-0-1
Dunn* 0 (6 balls)
Olowe 0 (5 balls)

Last Wicket: Iwuajoku b. Barrowdale 0 (FOW: 0/1)

Olowe is the filler player so I expect it to be two down fairly shortly, then the hard work starts.

It's one of the big SZ derbies today, I'm up against Muse and am going to get spanked.

Ok forget it - my opps have thrown the game. Succesive promotion looms already but my batting line up won't be strong enough for VI
You'd be surprised, the standard of the FC leagues is much closer than the OD leagues as they're more spread. I think you'd be ok (and another promotion means you might break into the upper echelons of the SZ rankings, ahead of one of the 'originals' - I'm looking at you Toddy).

Have a guess....
Lost the toss, he's not picked the best bowling line-up, but his batting is pretty reasonable down to 5, could be a long day.....

Checked and no, all blank.

No further wickets, will be a long day of bowling. Once again it will be a case of seeing if we can bat long enough to force the draw.

Hoping to have 55 overs or more to record first ever one day win. They were all sublime at start and two days plus a bot OD should see me perfect for next week, though my opp for that game has already confirmed he will field a weakened team as I rolled over in OD for him. I then have a bot.

4 down now, though of course the quicker we get them out, the more time we have to bat for. Their bowlers look pretty formidable. Nonetheless, every bowling point counts so hopefully we can nip get them all out before they reach 360.

Benjamin 9-1-40-1
