    Nothing but bad luck for me. :(

    My bowlers did little, none of my batsmen performed to expectations, even Sarge was a mild disappointment. He did get his century, but was out shortly after that and went for a strike rate under 100 (he's normally closer to 115).

    I'll be interested to see the ratings, I think I probably got screwed, again -- it's been a good while since anybody besides Sarge has had a really good day in OD.

    Top Order: exceptional exceptional
    Middle Order: superb proficient
    Lower Order: abysmal feeble
    Seam Bowling: quality strong
    Spin Bowling: remarkable strong
    Fielding: mediocre mediocre

    Your guess is as good as mine as to how I lost this one.

    On the plus side, I'll have a lot more gimmes next season, so I may be able to go deeper in the cup. I should walk to OD promotion, but FC promotion will be up in the air as I've still got a stiff opponent in Peters Utd there -- but his favored flat pitch will help a lot because he may wind up sucked into some draws that I can avoid.

    i was looking at your ratings and it was one of those matches that doesn't make any sense. I'm sure you'll bounce back right away.

    5 new teams in the series next year! going to be tough, but Coetzer will have better fitness for the whole season, and I don't have to play Doobie Bombers four times (twice in OD and twice in FC). Top 4 is the goal, and the season after that Olivier will be ready to go, although I could use him in this upcoming season!

    BT20 Windies commentary didn't show up today. Got Peters Utd tomorrow and the winner advances. Going to take a miracle for me to win

    I am still in BT20, finished second in the OD league and deliberately played scrubs and got relegated in FC matches.

    Should win BT20 today, but I can't see that run lasting much longer.

    chance to finish 2nd in my OD league, the div IV team that demoted only has 5 quality players, so their PFL will be not great.

    FC is going to be tough, but I reckon I can manage to stay up going full strength every week. It is only top 4 that stay up in FC yeah?

    I have one serious competitor in FC, none in OD. Only about half of each league (at best) will even force me to field a first-choice lineup. At least I should be able to take a decent run at going deep in the cup, although my team isn't deep enough in good players to challenge the top WI teams.
