For the third time this season my boys managed to get the better of the Bengals as we continue our good T20 season. I didn’t expect much from us with the bat but in the end we managed to rack up a very good score of 162 all out with their seamer Rabada taking a 5-fer (taking after his namesake). Veteran Lodi player an ABD-esque innings of 71(45) despite the pitch being 70 wear, but was well
supported by Vattyam who scored a steady 31 and Ansar who hit 25(16) at the back end. Unfortunately they ran Peake out for 1 which probably saved them about 20 runs but it was still a very good target. In response my bowlers bowled well, Peake being the star with another 4-fer but backed up well by Vijayarangan and Yeluri. Their opener Ibqal showed some resistance for his 50 and at one point I was worried when he and Branning put together a threatening stand, but the target was too high on such a worn pitch, and we ended up winning by 38 runs. For some reason we seem to have the wood over the Bengals this season who were far better than us before (though they did sell off the core of their 65k rated bowling attack). Anyways, bowling AR Piyush Yeluri has been on fire with the ball, for some reason he’s an absolute god in T20s and I can’t figure out why, he doesn’t have bowling traits and his skills aren’t even super good yet.
We’re getting some interesting matches in our league. MP got their first defeat today by unmanaged but not botted West London Cricket Club, while 50k+ rated Barnstoneworth got bowled out for 92 by a 23k rated bot Aztecs CC and only won by 28 runs
I take exception to that remark, we only made 85!!! What a terrible game. It must have been a ploughed field, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it. I think the only difference between the teams was that we got 27 extras and my super-human keeper kept our gimmes down to 4. As you say, interesting to see MP lose a game but West London do put in some incredible performances from time to time. Hopefully not to be repeated next week...
Well weird matches do happen from time to
time, all it takes is a really unlucky series of outputs with the build up of pressure and then you can see huge upsets happen. Though this does show that Simes’ boys are not invincible, meaning that you may have a slight chance of winning the league if they go on a huge losing streak (though this was more likely a one-off given that they’re rated 60k+).
Looking forward to our second encounter soon and hoping that we’ll put up a better fight.
Not a good look this week couldn't bowl couldn't bat are probably dreadful at fielding too. Worryingly I think I've seen this before. I have two players with the influential trait and their touch is currently tanking. Last time this happened we got relegated...
