We won the toss and I decided to bowl first. I'm not sure if that's going to be the right decision.

Not too bad so far but it's still very early.

Another expected loss today and our best batsmen going so early hasn't helped.

With my best batsman and main wicketkeeper away on international duty, I really needed my bowlers to perform but this is beginning to look like a difficult total to chase.

Easy game today against The Dross, basically barring something very odd happening this season is going down to a last game shoot out between me and Bigsexybarry.

End of over 16 (1 run) - Ruff Royals(90-3). 51 runs required from 4 overs. RR 5.62 RRR 12.75

Paton, who has the finisher talent, just got out. Only scoring 4 runs and losing 1 wicket in the last 2 overs looks to have ended any hopes we might have had of picking up the win.

Didn't bowl well enough. Now we're only 4 points clear at the top. There was a nice 62 from 55 balls for Best but that and Diaz's 2-19 were the only things that went well today.
