Seems like my players can't even play 2 games a week now without being knackered. I can't see me winning next week either as I've got 4 players away (3 batsmen, 1 bowler). At least, they'll get a rest.

C. Ngwale (lfs) 2-0-7-0, E. McCall 43 (46b), I. Santos 24 (29b)
End of over 12 (6 runs) - Ruff Royals(76-0) RR 6.33

Hard pitch (late change from a flat pitch) but I'm hoping the weather helps me. We need a big total too.

I'm not sure what enough runs would look like on this pitch. I'm not sure 260 will be enough though.

Home today in windy and slow conditions and lost the toss so batting first .Currently unbeaten youth wise this season,playing bottom today therefore quite hopeful of another win....

Currently 123 for 3 from 23.3 overs.

A. Muliro (lfm) 7-0-49-0, A. Clarke 13 (11b), S. Hodges 7 (6b)
End of over 26 (9 runs) - Ruff Royals(168-3) RR 6.46

We need another big partnership as there's not much batting to come. Hodges hasn't been good with the bat so far this season; we'll see if he does any better after moving a place down the order.

End of over 40 (16 runs) - Ruff Royals(278-5) RR 6.95

It's a hard pitch so this is certainly chaseable. Decent innings by Hodges, Santos and McCall with each scoring a half century.

Finished up 278 for 6 from our 40, we can mainly thank a brilliant 146 from 110 balls by no3 Scholes for this total.

His innings only ended due to a run out while going for quick runs near the end.

I think that is too much for us to chase. Very disappointing that there was only one triggered bowling talent the whole innings when I have 3 bowlers with triggers......

Happily for me, you were right about it being too much to chase. It was a decent effort by your batsmen though.

Pretty unusual to see so few triggers then. I've only just noticed that I don't have any relevant trigger talents for my players or at least for the ones that are playing.

Ruff Royals won by 33 runs.

I felt Moses bowled particularly well and kept it tight with 2-39. He probably deserved at least 1 more wicket too.

Very happy with todays win as it keeps us unbeaten and in 2nd place, although that will no doubt end next week when we take on the top and the only other unbeaten team in the league!

A. McCutchin (rf) 6-2-12-0, G. Godfrey 22 (48b), A. Ghauri 22 (49b)
End of over 22 (1 run) - Grange XI(75-2) RR 3.41

If we lose this we'll be in really big trouble and it's not going well at the moment. Bass dropping Ghauri on 19 could be a crucial mistake.
