ShrimperZone CC v Up Goes The Finger

Interesting finish to the season:

1. Up Goes The Finger..13 13 0 0 52 26.42
2. Peruvian Farmers.....13 10 0 3 40 23.02
3. ShrimperZone CC.....13 7 0 6 28 10.42
4. Eppleton CC............13 7 0 6 28 1.65
5. Parkway Sports.......13 6 0 7 24 -2.24
6. The Guvnors...........13 4 0 9 16 -4.45

Peruvian Farmers v Parkway Sports
ShrimperZone CC v Up Goes The Finger
The Guvnors v Eppleton CC

1st and 2nd all decided. We play the unbeaten leaders who boast a rather impresssive line up. We need to avoid a big NRR swing to avoid a qualifier, though this also relies on Parkway beating the Farmers (which they are more than capable of). Eppleton should win, Guvnors only have that many points as Yamas and Thommos Trojans both had a fire sale. Fully sublime so a rare GFI for us. With 5 players in the oppositions line up of 200k+ BTR that may not make much difference!

Whatever happens, we thought we'd finish 7th at the start of the season so have exceeded expectations.

Have a guess....
BATTY SHRIMPERS v ends of the earth

Win and we're in a relegation play-off, lose and we complete the triple. Bowlers are all knackered (1 Lively, 4 Fresh), but they all have to play. We're on a GFI obviously, but my oppo played in a bot in FC this week, so they'll all be Sublime. I can only see this going one way....

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

DIBS DIPPERS v highton

Mrs BB has already won her division, and sits in 5th place in the promotion table. If she wins, she's automatically promoted, if she loses she could end up in a play-off as the sides just below the line have better NRR's. She's at full-strength, on a GFI, with everyone at Sublime.

We've been put into bat which is probably an early nail in our coffin. Sunny day so no chance of bowling them out. Just have to try to get as many runs on the board as possible and hope the NRR doesn't suffer too much. Not a good start though as Sini falls early.

End of Over 5: 18-1, runrate=3.60
Shakes 3-0-7-1
Cunningham* 15 (12 balls)
Lamey 1 (10 balls)

Last Wicket: Sinethemba c. Wasim b. Shakes 1 (FOW: 14/1)

Steady start by the oppo after we won the toss and inserted...

BATTY SHRIMPERS v ends of the earth

We can tell you that BATTY SHRIMPERS won the toss and elected to field. The pitch is looking quite cracked! A field day for the seam bowlers I would reckon on this sunny day.

End of Over 6: 23-0, runrate=3.83
Lindop 3-0-9-0
Sangha* 15 (19 balls)
Baumforth 6 (17 balls)

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

I think Mrs BB is going to be OK.

DIBS DIPPERS v highton (4525330)

We can tell you that highton won the toss and elected to field. The pitch is looking a bit on the dry side. A fair bit of help for the spinners I think on this sunny day.

End of Over 6: 43-0, runrate=7.17
Nidhan 3-0-24-0
Stride* 11 (14 balls)

Welcome to BWB CG for the match between BWB and Southend.

We can tell you that BWB won the toss and elected to field. The pitch is looking a touch on the green side. All the seam bowlers have been out there rubbing their hands on this partially cloudy and humid day.

Let’s join our team for ball-by-ball commentary.



End of Over 7: 28-3, runrate=4.00
Campbell 4-1-17-3
Tsietsi* 14 (16 balls)

I sit fourth and play the top team away who have only lost once. GFI and put in to bat on a H&F pitch, on a partially cloudy and humid day.

Being pinned down by their 2 £70k p/w openers.

Richie is run out which is a bummer as he had the measure of their top bowler and was scoring well.

Looks like we're going to be chasing a sizeable total. Luckily the batters are a lot fitter than the bowlers.

Macca goes but a decent little partnership. Every run counts for NRR as Parkway have made a decent start against the Farmers.

Painfully slow here (17 runs from 11 overs) but I guess that's fine if we can hold wickets in hand for the final 10. If we can get over 200 the NRR drop should be no more than 2.

Big 10 overs coming up, anything less than 80 off them and we've got a chance...

By virtue of not being skittled I think it's now impossible for Parkway to overhaul the NRR difference so all being well we should finish 4th. As for the match itself, this is about 70 runs short of what it needs to be and they should knock it off with ease.

End of Over 47: 196-4, runrate=4.17
Wasim 9-0-61-1

Not a bad effort from where we were. Going to have to hope that Barrowdale and Digana can dig a couple out early then let the spinners strangle the middle overs. Never going to happen though!! Max NRR loss is 1.5 though and Parkway would have to bowl the Farmers out for next to nothing to catch me.

Delicately poised in the other games with Farmers and Eppleton chasing 268 and 253 respectively.

Not as good as i'd have first hoped tbh!! Going to have to chase it to confirm III survival. Lose and 5th 6th and 7th all win then i'll end up being relegated automatically!!
