    I actually don't mind the idea. He's a defensive bat, so he can soak up some balls early on to tire the bowlers and let the middle order smash them.
  2. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Soaking up anything under 50 balls is a complete failure. How many did he survive in each innings?
  3. morgieb MC Burridge

    Yeah, but it could still work. Just because he failed in one game, doesn't mean he's ****ing useless.
  4. Hybrid A Kolar


    It's ludicrous.
  5. Wilson SB Wilson

    You're so elite Morg.
  6. Qwerty HD Roberts

    That game was rather ****ed.

    Half of our team need to be dropped, :p

    *waits for SM to come in and say "changes will be made!"* :p
  8. morgieb MC Burridge

    Just read my post in the subforum. There's your answer.
  9. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Yeah you're right. I should open for the Cyclones bowling, I might fail, but I might succeed. It's definitely worth giving a shot for a few games.
    I know how to spell.
  10. morgieb MC Burridge

    You're a spinner though. :p

    Thing is, I actually wouldn't have him opening now. If Hornby wasn't banned, then it might have logic, but Dafter is an opener, and therefore Ged shouldn't be opening ahead of him.

    That's the thing. Dafter has failed opening, but has gunned it in the middle order...
  13. Farny AP Farnsworth

    Love all the "LOL Owned!" posts in the first innings, when we got first innings points.
    Happy that I got another good bowling performance in...was kind of due one. Also, Farny to replace Ged at the top of the order :ninja:
  14. BigDougy DG Dafter

    Thank god for our bowlers. Awesome stuff from Farny and Ged again.
  15. Ged GEC King

    I'll just reply to this post only on the plan with it. Mainly because I actually care about your opinion, unlike Jemmell's. Basically, Fung has failed all season at 5 while Dafter came in earlier in the season and did well at 5 but has failed opening. On top of this, having Farny at 8 and Tyson at 7 left us with a rather long tail given that Farny hasn't remembered that he can hold a bat. With that in mind, me opening allowed Dafter to move to a more favoured position, Fung to move to a more favoured position, and finally, it allowed us to not have such a significant tail. It obviously didn't really work, but it was worth a go as if I could eek out 10-15 in each innings and soak up a heap of balls, it gives the other blokes in the team a greater chance of succeeding.
  16. Ged GEC King

    Anyway, I was very worried in that first innings but our bowling got us through as it has almost all season. I'm really impressed with Big Man's progress this season and he has become a really dependable option at 4 despite no really massive scores. Vago again was the star of our batting though.

    gold work by the rays love what you are doing, ie winning, great effort by the bowlers on what was clearly a bowling friendly wicket, which makes our second innings with the bat awesome, keep it up
  18. SM MD Dorn


    I sincerely hope some ****s performed in ALC...
  19. Gazza GJ Weaver

    Epic win from the Rays
  20. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    Well I think the Cyclones tail is too long, WIlson agrees and he will be opening the batting with Emm and Green next match. That way it allows us to bat a lot lower...
