I was about 5 minutes too late to set my orders! :oops:

Let's hope my defaults do alright. They don't look terrible but not exactly great planning on my part.

Thanks, Odin.

It's tough being second and I should know as I was second 10 times in the West Indies SOD! Only the second time I've won the league after all these seasons. I didn't think I had a chance a few games ago and even started the process of switching to a more spin friendly home pitch in preparation for next season.

My allrounder played as an opener and scored 113 which was almost double his previous best. That really set us up for a decent, if not spectacular, total. Plenty of their batters got into double figures but then got out. I was starting to think their last wicket partnership was going to cost me a bonus point too.

Well done mate your team is looking solid. You'll be tough to beat for a few seasons. Top 2 teams came in top 2 spots and the rest fell into place!

Congrats Calvino,
Well deserved.
Always a good season when it goes down to the last game. Let’s hope for more of the same next time.

Happy treading water and holding position for now. Very young side, still a good 3-4 seasons away from their peak. There will be some really good sides moving up next season and so just staying up will be an accomplishment.
