This season for me is all about survival in OD, going to be up against it but hopefully we can hold our own and even if we come 5th or 6th, I’d fancy our chances in a play off with a III team as long as my morale isn’t shot to pieces. FC will be tough but if we can field a strong team in every match we should be up there so promotion to III is not an unrealistic aim. I will be trying for promotion in BT20 however it will be dependent on cup progress as if fitness is suffering then BT20 will be the one to be sacrificed.

As for the squad, I’m hoping that with Macca and Sini moving up the order to take pressure off Plums and Mario, we should be able to field our first choice Bowling unit in most games. Only Suthers (strong) doesn’t have superb stamina. It leaves us lining up like this:

Batting:
1. Masterful/Exquisite
2. Wonderful/Phenomenal* (soon to be Exceptional/Elite)
3. Wonderful/Remarkable*
4. Remarkable/Quality
5. Remarkable/Strong*
6. Quality/Wonderful
7. Quality/Strong*
8. Respectable/Abysmal*

Bowling:
1 Masterful/Sensational - FM
2 Masterful/Sensational - Spin
3 Sensational/Sensational - M
4 Sensational/Wonderful - FM
5 Wonderful/Wonderful – F

So batting as far behind the bowling as ever but it is finally starting to take shape and with Lamo, Sini and Macca shedding some nets they should contribute more.

Predictions:
OD – 5th
FC – 1st
BT20 – 3rd
Cup – Last 32
