Round 6, Match 24

BLOWN8 v Wookiedragon

BLOWN8 won the toss once again and would have hoped for a much-improved showing when choosing to bat again. It was improved, but not by all that much. Steve Waugh showed some fight in scoring 70, but a lack of support around him meant they put up 222 before being bowled out. Imran Khan had a good outing with the bowl, claiming 4/52.

Wookiedragon had the chance to grab the ascendency, and an even batting effort meant they did, but perhaps not to the extent they could have had one batsman made a big score. As it was, Javed Miandad's 71 not out was the top score, but most of the batsmen chipped in to contribute to an 82-run lead after a total of 304. Waqar Younis was the pick of the bowlers with 5/55.

Could BLOWN8 set a competitive total this match? That was the question at the halfway mark but another weak batting performance didn't help their cause. Another innings without a fifty led to a total of just 171, as this time it was Curtly Ambrose's turn to bag some wickets with 5/47.

This left Wookiedragon chasing just 90, and once again BLOWN8's bowlers were left with far too much to do. They could pick up just two of the ten wickets required and Wookiedragon claimed a simple victory that kept him in the top-four race.

BLOWN8 222 (Waugh 70, Imran Khan 4/52) & 171 (Ambrose 5/47) defeated by Wookiedragon 304 (Javed Miandad 71*, Taylor 56, Waqar Younis 5/55) & 2/91 (Taylor 32, Chappell 30*) by eight wickets.

Ladder Permutations

Firstly in the event of two or more teams finishing on the same number of points on the ladder, I was thinking of splitting them as follows:

1. Team with more wins finishes higher (if team A finishes with 4 wins and 0 draws for 8 points and team B finishes with 3 wins and 2 draws for 8 points, team A finishes higher)
2. If equal on wins, head-to-head results against other teams on the same number of points (if team A and team B finished on the same number of points but team A beat team B when they played against each other, team A finishes higher)

If we have teams still equal after this then we can work something out then.

May-Z

Will finish 1st regardless of results in Round 7

Keatoboy

Will finish either 2nd or 3rd:

- 2nd if Scotty_WCE does not win his last two matches
- 3rd if Scotty_WCE does win his last two matches

Scotty_WCE

Could finish anywhere from 2nd to 5th:

- 2nd if win each of last two matches
- 3rd, 4th or 5th otherwise, with many possible permutations

Any draw or win from the last two matches would lock in a top-four finish.

Matty76

Could finish anywhere from 3rd to 6th:

- 3rd if wins last match and mounteverest gets no more than 2 points from his last two matches
- 4th, 5th or 6th otherwise, with many possible permutations

A win in his last match would lock in a top-four finish.

mounteverest

Could finish anywhere from 3rd to 7th:

- 7th if lose each of last two matches and Eels Guru wins his last two matches
- 3rd, 4th, 5th or 6th otherwise, with many possible permutations

A win and a draw from the last two matches would lock in a top-four finish.

Wookiedragon

Could finish anywhere from 4th to 7th:

- 4th if wins last match, Matty76 loses his last match and gets no more than 1 point from his last two matches
- 7th if loses last match and Eels Guru wins his last two matches
- 5th or 6th otherwise, with many possible permutations

BLOWN8

Could finish 7th or 8th:

- 7th if Eels Guru gets 2 points or fewer from his last two matches
- 8th if Eels Guru gets more than 2 points from his last two matches

Eels Guru

Could finish anywhere from 5th to 8th:

- 5th if wins each of last two matches and mounteverest loses his last two matches
- 8th if gets 2 points or fewer from last two matches
- 6th or 7th otherwise, with many possible permutations

Round 7, Match 25

Wookiedragon v Eels Guru

Wookiedragon needed a win to have any chance of making the top four but got a less than ideal start when sent in by Eels Guru. But it turned out they had little to worry about Steve Smith (119), Greg Chappell (98) and Javed Miandad (73) combined for a very strong middle-order showing. The innings lasted 134 overs as they amassed 450.

It was a one-man show in reply as Arthur Morris achieved the rare feat of carrying his bat, making 131 in the process. But the next-best score was just 20 by Brendon McCullum as they fell two runs short of avoiding the follow-on by being dismissed for 249.

Wookiedragon duly did enforce it, but they wouldn't have expected what happened next. Led by 121 by Bill Ponsford and a gargantuan 205 by Richie Richardson, Eels Guru put up a huge total of 598. This effectively sealed a draw, as there were only 37 overs remaining and Wookiedragon was now almost 400 runs in arrears.

They safely batted out the remaining overs, losing only two wickets but Eels Guru had successfully dashed Wookiedragon's finals hopes.

Wookiedragon 450 (Smith 119, Chappell 98, Javed Miandad 73) & 2/151 (Chappell 57*, Smith 50*) drew Eels Guru 249 (Morris 131*, Spofforth 3/33, Imran Khan 3/51) & 598 (Richardson 205, Ponsford 121, Spofforth 4/122, Grimmett 4/142).

Round 7, Match 26

Eels Guru v mounteverest

mounteverest, still in the finals hunt, needed a good start, and was perfectly poised to get one by winning the toss and batting first. But Eels Guru was intent on spoiling another team's chances, and certainly put a dent in mounteverest's by dismissing them for just 164 despite 72 from Doug Walters. Stuart MacGill took four lower-order wickets to wrap up the innings.

Eels Guru then proceeded to put up the sort of innings that they would have liked while they were still in the finals hunt; their total of 430 was chiefly thanks to Arthur Morris (123) and his sidekicks Ian Chappell (87) and Richie Richardson (66). This time it was Mitchell Johnson's turn to claim four scalps.

It was looking dire for mounteverest, and they needed someone to step up. In the end it was actually two someones, as Desmond Haynes (150) and Ricky Ponting (134) put on a massive 256 for the second wicket to lead the team to 590 all out. All of a sudden they had their noses in front, as Eels Guru was set 325 to win from 112 overs. It was anybody's game.

In the end it was a bridge too far for Eels Guru, as the Aussie trio of McGrath, Johnson and Benaud combined to take all ten wickets and complete a remarkable, and vital, victory for mounteverest. The margin was 85 runs, with Eels Guru ending on 239 with Ian Chappell the only batsman to make fifty.

Eels Guru 430 (Morris 123, Chappell 87, Johnson 4/78) & 239 (Chappell 50, Benaud 4/58, McGrath 4/59) defeated by mounteverest 164 (Walters 72, MacGill 4/43) & 590 (Haynes 150, Ponting 134, Benaud 75) by 85 runs.

Round 7, Match 27

mounteverest v Scotty_WCE

Once again mounteverest batted first, but again it was a hit-or-miss first innings as only three batsmen passed 13. It would have been considerably worse but for Ponting's 88 and Barry Richards' 64, as they made 251. Malcolm Marshall and Shaun Pollock each picked up four wickets.

In contrast, Scotty_WCE's batsmen all got starts, with each of the top nine scoring 16+. But it only lead to a 297-run total and a lead of 46, as only Andy Flower converted his start into a fifty. Mitchell Johnson continued his good form with figures of 5/46.

The game was in the balance and needed someone to take charge. Wasim Akram turned out to be that man, dismissing mounteverest's top three for scores of 0, 0 and 4 leaving them reeling at 3/20. The middle order rallied but only enough to post a score of 222, as the rest of the wickets were shared around evenly. This left Scotty_WCE facing a chase of 177.

It had the potential to be tricky, but Viv Richards took control and despite the loss of four wickets, guided his team with a 68* to a quite comfortable victory.

mounteverest 251 (Ponting 88, B Richards 64, Pollock 4/43, Marshall 4/60) & 222 (B Richards 58, Wasim Akram 4/58) defeated by Scotty_WCE 297 (Flower 53, Johnson 5/46) & 4/179 (V Richards 68*) by six wickets.

Round 7, Match 28

Scotty_WCE v Matty76

In a critical match to determine final ladder positions, Scotty_WCE won the toss and elected to bat. Rahul Dravid made 72, and Shaun Pollock made some valuable late runs with 59*, as they ended on a reasonable score of 314. Matty76's bowlers shared the wickets around.

A solid platform was laid by the top three in reply, before Ken Barrington took control. He made a wonderful 207 as his team made a huge total of 590. This included four other batsmen passing fifty in a very strong batting effort.

But Scotty_WCE wouldn't go down without a fight. Again "The Wall" proved hard to conquer as Dravid this time went on to a century, making 129. Flower and Gavaskar were his main providers of support as they amassed 464 all out. Derek Underwood's 4/73 wasn't enough to give his team a chance, as Matty76 was left with an impossible target of 189 off 11 overs.

Of course the match ended without either team having a sniff, as a draw gave each team one last point on the ladder.

Scotty_WCE 314 (Dravid 72, S Pollock 59*) & 464 (Dravid 129, Underwood 4/73) drew Matty76 590 (Barrington 207, Sehwag 67, Healy 67) & 1/23 (Marshall 1/10).

Finals Fixtures

Qualifying Final: May-Z v Scotty_WCE
- Winner advances to Grand Final
- Loser takes on winner of Elimination Final in Preliminary Final

Elimination Final: Keatoboy v mounteverest
- Winner advances to Preliminary Final to take on loser of Qualifying Final
- Loser is eliminated

In the event of a draw, since we are not restricted by physical fatigue, I propose we replay the game until we have a result.

I was also thinking of doing minor finals for the remaining teams, in the same format as above, just so that everyone gets at least one or two more games and it will give us final rankings of the eight teams.

Minor QF: Matty76 v Wookiedragon

Minor EF: BLOWN8 v Eels Guru

These four games will be posted tomorrow.

Surely a draw the highest ranked team should go through?
I promise I was going to propose that idea from the start, I didn't just think of it after I saw the final ladder :lol:

I'm open to negotiation but just thought that it might be a bit anticlimactic to, say, win it all with a draw? And thought since we don't have to worry about the logistics that come with physical tournaments we could just replay. But up to you guys, I don't mind. Any other opinions either way?

That gives the minor round matches more meaning though, now there is no difference between 1st and 2nd, 3rd and 4th

Yep that's a fair point. Could do something like higher on the ladder chooses whether they want to bat or bowl first (i.e. take the first simulated game which has the requested toss result) or something as a compromise. Or we can just stay with what you suggest. I'll see if anyone else wants to chime in with their thoughts and then we'll decide by before the games are simulated tomorrow.
