Playing UGTF who have fielded half a team. Had I known I'd have gone for a win but as we have limited bowling resources selected it's likely to be a draw.

End of Over 10 (1 run). Up Goes The Finger: 46-0, runrate=4.60
Overs left today: 100
Udayakumar 1-0-1-0
Lloyd* 37 (27 balls)
Brinkhuys 9 (33 balls)

draw was likely to be enough for us to stay up, so i've gone for four bowlers and Paster doing some part-time spin. we lost the toss and are bowling in the sunny conditions, but it doesn't seem to have put off Barnes and Devine who reduced them to 32-5 at one point. need to break this partnership, then we're into the tail.


End of Over 31 (3 runs). Jaques Danger: 71-5, runrate=2.29
Overs left today: 79
Cliffe 7-2-23-0
Hill* 20 (48 balls)
Bourhill 22 (52 balls)
Last Wicket: Whing b. Barnes 0 (FOW: 32/5)

Annoyingly these two are holding us up as if we can bowl them out, we could well force a win as their bowling attack looks awful (depending on whether they bowl their all rounders) and I can bring Graham into the bowling attack in the second innings. The batsmen in play are 7k each!

End of Over 68 (Maiden). Up Goes The Finger: 222-6, runrate=3.26
Overs left today: 42
Gulpen 16-1-68-0
Windsor* 36 (74 balls)
Beattie 10 (62 balls)

Last Wicket: Chatterton c. Lamey b. Nadeeka 0 (FOW: 183/6)

Bowled them out for 240 and are 130-0 in reply. Looking good for our first FC win of the season. Should help garner some much needed gate receipts in our next two games.

Ooh, fancy a friendly tomorrow then, as we finished off our game today, securing promotion to level III :happy:
You'll see from Kev's fixture list how concerned he is with friendlies! I reckon I'll make about £650k from friendlies this season so I actively look for them!

Congrats on promotion, about time you stopped camping.

Intriguing day tomorrow. My opps closed on 47-4 119 ahead. Could have done without that My guess is if they need to post a total for me to chase they will need at least 30 overs. Think I'll still set bats defensive. Draw is the result I need a win would be a bonus and a gamble.

Haha, I wish. It took me about 4 seasons to get out of V, and I was trying every season :'(
There's not much difference between V to I in FC, you can have a tougher IV than II quite easily. But once you get up you tend to stay up and I still want to see a bunch of us in the top 20 rankings, especially as the SZ League is now becoming so high profile! Petts are the team who look like they're going to make the jump and ORM's team can't be far away now.

I know I'm in 3rd toughest level IV OD.

Can't see me making the jump in FC for at least a couple of seasons. Think I'm in a tough VII and even though training is going well i seem to be flying on the seat of my pants each week. Having said that I've worked out that from the fixtures I can't be relegated and could well still finish second if I win today so ive not changed orders apart from bowling If I lose seemingly my opps present the biggest danger next season assuming they survive A win would see them down and nirvana would see a bit coming down from Vi. Sadly no money to strengthen.

Mrithyunjayan 0 (0 balls)

Last Wicket: Cudjoe c & b. Blinkhorn 0 (FOW: 85/7)


39.6 W Blinkhorn to Cudjoe
Line and length from Blinkhorn. It gripped into the wicket a little bit taking some pace off the ball and Cudjoe has hit it straight back to Blinkhorn with a simple catch.
39.5 . Blinkhorn to Cudjoe
Bit shorter this time, tried to pull it away but couldn't get the timing right.
39.4 W Blinkhorn to Chukwu
Out! A huge mistimed pull shot, the ball balloons in the air and Caulfield takes an easy catch straight down his throat
