Two of the teams are now looking like making it 2 wins from 2, whilst the other two games are now in the balance.

Incredible steal today - from 114/8 to pulling off a chase of 203 against a fairly strong human team

Charlie Bungay top scoring from No. 10 and taking 3/19 off 6 overs (all three wickets in the 32nd over when they were just about to tee off their late slogging), but Ralph Arnold getting 10* on debut despite a 0 shot selection stat also deserves all the plaudits

Lost out on training today because a weaker team chose to bat first. Typical. Meant I chased it 2 down and hardly any bats got any training. They should know they're going to lose and choose to bowl first...

;)

Easy win against Mike today for the main team.

Affiliate...not so easy...but a rabbit out of the hat with very good death bowling again, after a shocking performance in the middle overs.

Managers tend to bat first if they know they’re weaker. I imagine they don’t want their bowlers to be thrashed around the park week in week out, plus their batters all get a knock. Some managers don’t seem to worry about in game training and are happy with nets and the experience of playing. It’s what makes the game interesting.....

This match in my affiliate's league was top drama - complete with bat carry and 14 of 17 required for the last-wicket stand

:lol: touche

My DEV team is on autopilot to be honest, only a few players I am bothered about, rest are filler.

Would have bowled first if I had prepped for the game.

A complete steal in yesterdays Div 1.1 game, where we had got ourselves into a position where we were destined to take the L. However, a magical 8 wickets in 16 balls pulled off perhaps one of the biggest, and swiftest turn arounds to a game, ever :crazy:
