You could knock me down with a feather!!! Stuck my reserves out today for fatigue management, and they only pulled off a ridiculous win - didn't even need my two alrounders to bat to get home!:

I've barely won a match 'against the ratings' in 3 seasons, and when I finally win one, it's with a 52k deficit!!!

End of over 40 (14 runs) - Ruff Royals(276-5) RR 6.90

Not bad in the end but who knows if this is a going to be enough on a hard pitch? Great innings by Hicks with 126 not out and Schmidt hit a nice 61.

They were 17 for 5, so is the game messing with us before we lose?

At least we now have out expert summary wristy on now.

We're strugging and 21 runs off an over from Bruce isn't helping. Need Wekesa gone as soon as possible.

The ME seems to do that. If you get too low a total then your bowling might give you hope but the ME always seems to decide that you're going to lose one way or another. I think it realises that it's the hope that kills you.

It sure was close but we did it. Schneider had the best figures of my bowlers with 3-48. Hicks did great for his 126 not out and has been much better recently.
