Yorkshire Puddings Ruff Royals
Batting - Top Order 6,627 7,490

105 not out for Dotson and 94 not for Hicks which means that we won with more than 7 overs to spell. Looks like we'll be battling for 2nd spot if things go well.

I wouldn't bet against you winning, you've won 2/3rds of the matches we've played.

Still, it would be nice to get my win record up a bit ;)

Don't really have a great team currently, did a bit of a rebuilding exercise last season.

Yeah, I know that experience, I've only just starting recovering from the reorganisation I did 3 - 4 seasons ago. It's useful in the long run though

Good luck in today's match; hopefully it's a fairly tight match, but not too tight ;)

Dry pitch and the spinners are now on. We need a big partnership now.

84/6 at drinks, a tough start to life in div 1, but to be expected against the reigning champs!

Hmm, ok, 63/10. Perhaps it won't be that tight :shock:

On the positive side my players won't be tired for the match they're not going to play on Sunday, and nor will yours :twisted:

M. Mauger (rfm) 9-0-50-2, B. Issa 1 (1b), C. Paton 18 (17b)
End of over 28 (4 runs) - Ruff Royals(136-4) RR 4.86

It's not looking too good. It wasn't looking too bad at 99-2 but these are my last 2 proper batsmen and I reckon we need at least another 120 runs.
