Won by 42 runs defending 140 odd. Probably my biggest upset ever seeing as everyone’s knocked from my PC run.

C. Britt (rfs) 5-0-18-4, J. Oppenheimer 7 (15b), S. Burt 0 (0b)
End of over 30 (2 runs) - Coastal Knights(109-9) RR 3.63

M. Barnard c & b. C. Britt 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR:0.00
A hattrick for Britt!
29.6WBritt to Barnard : [catch] Tossed up outside off and turning in, draws Barnard forward and he helpfully pats it back to Britt at a perfect catching height.
29.5WBritt to van den Berg : He shuffled across his stumps looking to work to leg and was struck in front by Britt.F. van den Berg lbw b. C. Britt 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR:0.00
29.4WBritt to de Vaal : [stumped] Brilliance from Britt, and he fully deserves it too. Drags de Vaal down the wicket, beats him in flight, and Ambaliya stumps him with consummate ease.F. de Vaal st A. Ambaliya b. C. Britt 3 (5b 0x4 0x6) SR:60.00

I am completely stunned over here!

I won the toss and chose to bat first in sunny weather on a slow pitch...

E. Shuttleworth (lm) 8.2-0-27-2, S. Burt 9 (18b)
End of over 48 (maiden) - Coastal Knights(174-10) RR 3.62

47.2 W Shuttleworth to Oppenheimer : Shuttleworth released that delivery from well behind the bowling crease. Oppenheimer played his shot too early and middle peg is knocked back as a result. Unorthodox but effective.
J. Oppenheimer b. E. Shuttleworth 61 (102b 2x4 1x6) SR:59.80

My star keeper put up a QDK performance to salvage the innings, but this won't be near enough to avoid defeat against The Dolphins.

And just like that Game Master Crowfan suddenly got too busy to push his wicket button like he did during the first innings. :clap

Nah, my match today is just a little unbelievable.

The Dolphins won by 7 wickets

M. Barnard (rfm) 9-0-46-1, A. Ambaliya 1 (1b), D. Schwarzer 37 (65b)
End of over 38 (7 runs) - The Dolphins(175-3) RR 4.61

Coastal Knights The Dolphins
Batting - Top Order 11,281 12,349

Fielding/Keeping 14,479 14,921
Overall 208,532 210,384

Ratings are lower because of a few tired players.

In stark contrast...

St Anne's 2nd XI won by 20 runs

E. Chawaguta (lfs) 9.4-2-22-2, A. Tekere 52 (113b)

I think your over analyzing and its done/doing your head in.
Form and fitness had you on the back foot from the start in a game that could of easily gone either way.

Need to stop looking at the overall MR and start looking at bowling types and important rating factors.

30 overs of weak seamers against better top order bats. (3 bowlers suited for the conditions)
V
50 overs of bowlers who are better then the opponents bats (4 of which suit the conditions)
Fielding is also slightly better.

The overall rating might say its 2k difference but IMO the teams aint that close.
HBs seamers are almost a lvl worse off then the top order bats, and the batsmen are a lvl worse then the opponents bowlers. Slightly lower fielding and 3 v 4 suited bowlers for the conditions.
The opponents bowling being the biggest factor over hBs batsmen.

Result isnt a surprise at all.

Yeah, I probably could have gone with a weak Medium instead of my OBB FM and best captain to make it 4 v 4 for the conditions, but then the seam rating would be even lower.

Also, my top order batting is lower than what it usually is because 3 of my strongest batsmen were batting in the middle order due to their lower fatigue.

I appreciate the professional analysis though.

Doesnt matter where you batted your best bats. His bowlers were better then your batsmen and most of your bowlers were weaker then his batsmen. Better team one.

Thats what you want isnt it?

Disappointing loss for me to slip back down to 3rd, but completely outplayed by The Green Castle. Simply didn't score enough runs.

Yeah... I don't know hey...

Your analytical theory sounds completely solid, but I think Boscorp is much more spot on, there is just too much randomness to control anything, even when you have the stronger team.

There are so many variables to influence the outcome. The "random factor" allows the match engine to control the results. The game is designed to get a struggling club up and going successfully. Its set up via the "random factor" to prevent a bottleneck of super clubs dominating a competition for too many seasons after getting successful. Don't let it bug you and enjoy the game.
I'd just satisfy myself with believing that for the last game form (4 ave vs 1 ave) along with your keeper and a few others being a good way from rested made a difference enough to lose the game this week but maybe not next week. Just keep plugging along and it will fall together...briefly.
