amsterdammer have been my bogey team since my current 30yos were playing them in youths in 2016.
Even when I won SOD 1.1 last season, my two losses were both against them.
When I do get a win against them, it's pretty certain that luck plays a big part:

Rivalry stats:
Youth 2-9-1 = 16.67%
T20 1-6-0 = 14.29%
SOD 1-4-0 = 20%

If I add all of the win % together, it's close to 50%... that's how it works, right? :oops: :think :roll: :cry:

Thanks for the words of encouragement, mate - I hadn't realized how much of a positive record I had against your team.
My last good batch of 16year olds are also 30 now, so getting to the end of that cycle also.

In SOD my luck still hasn't changed as I lost to the team I need to catch to avoid relegation, but heavily outrated so its fair.
All on the cup now - I ended up outbidding sunday's opponent for a 31yo wristspinner OBB. I think I paid about 150-200k over the odds :oops:

Best of luck to you and Daka also indeed.

Thanks Drewyface- the nice thing of 3 teams at home is the games are all at the same time. Unfortunately we’re all up against it with worm’s opponent bowling him out and the off to a big start and Dhaka facing a biggish total for a crumbling. I’m chasing a smaller total but facing some near maxed out bowlers.

Thanks Drewy. We just didn't make enough runs after a decent start.
Good luck to the two remaining sides!
