Last week I stated that I'd finally achieved elite on bowling but thought I would have to wait a season for batting elite. Then I have today's ratings.

Top Order: exceptional elite
Middle Order: exceptional wonderful
Lower Order: woeful abysmal
Seam Bowling: miraculous elite
Spin Bowling: elite miraculous
Fielding: competent mediocre

Win keeps me 5th but I could well still be autorelegated. Next week is a must win game.

Lost the toss AGAIN but defended again and am now assured of second place.

I won and have apparently gone top of the league on NRR with two games to play. I don't want to go up to III, do i?

Purely scanning BTRs your team looks strong enough for III now, though probably needs a bit more depth as your 40-60k players could struggle.

On a Batstats basis you were 340th in England last week which is firmly in Level IV territory but I would still go for the promotion, the members bonus always helps and you're low enough in FC and BT20 to still be winning games during the season to keep morale and gates up.

cheers. more worried about pfl as actually my FC league is about as strong as my current OD in terms of BTR, ratings etc. it's probably a moot point as i'm near the bottom of the promotion table so even if i do come top, i'd have a difficult playoff most likely. I'll have a crack though.
