Close matchup on paper between FI and Perry Pirates with a slight advantage to my team. And a home game to boot. We failed dismally - posted a mediocre 8/266, with Pipe posting a century but everyone else doing poorly, and then only took one wicket as the Pirates cantered home with more than 10 overs to spare. Awful!

199/6 chasing 213 against Marvellous Effort and I dare say that we’ve done a good job. Do wish that Peake hadn’t bagged a first baller, set batsman Wyatt is tired and after him and Blackwell at 8 there isn’t exactly much batting. We should win, but then again we lost 7 wickets for about 15 runs against the Blandforf Badgers once while we were cruising to victory, so I’m not certain yet.

Edit: And that my friends is what you call the kiss of death. Captain Redman has stepped up with a phenomenal hattrick to reduce us to 200/9. Blackwell is still here, but it looks like we’re about to pull off yet another spectacular choke that would make South Africa proud.

Edit 2: And that’s it, after number 11 Dawson managed to block out the 45th over, Blackwell batted like an idiot and took 3 runs instead of 2, Redman cleaned Dawson up next ball to get a 5-fer and give Marvellous Effort a nail biting 7 run victory, the second game in our group to result in a victory by that margin. As for us, our ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory is astounding, and I honestly don’t see how my lads can disappoint me any more than they have already. Well played anyways Tonks :thumbup:

Tough luck!

We choked against NFTW in game 1, needing about 80 to win with 9 wickets in hand, we lost by 13 runs....

But you pulled of a spectacular victory against Free HK today, also winning by 7 runs! In fact, they went through a very similar mega collapse to me...

Commiserations YVRK. You almost pulled off an upset victory there. Good game. Redman was acquired by my club only a few days ago and is already proving his worth.

It's weird how 3 matches in our league all had 7 run victory margins. :lol:

Great round by the affiliates teams. Definitely feel for those on the losing end in Group B. All 3 of these teams could easily have won and in some cases may have been the more consistent on the day.

Sunday may be just as close with 1 vs 2 and 3 vs 4.

The games in Group A have been less close to date but 1 vs 2 on Sunday also. Should be a really great day for watching Affiliate games this weekend.

Looking forward to the 2nd game for the Main Tournament tommorow! Some interesting matchups for sure.
