Language is such a fun thing to play with. It also saves lives.

510 with 6/16 played.

My trades this week- in:
Head - the obvious choice
Laughlin- thought he was overdue for a good game as he's a decent bowler.
Wells - expected him to open, didn't have time to check batting order and change to Short and got very lucky.

Very happy with the ins tonight. Realistically things could be somewhat balanced out in the second game though.

Out: Curran, NCN & Henriques. Two of them didn't have another DGW and NCN possibly has peaked in price. Perhaps should have kept NCN instead of Pattinson.

Need my 4 Renegades players to fire and things are looking promising for a top 20 rank after this round (23rd currently).

Didn’t have a lot of time to consider my trade in options this round so ended up bringing in Weatherald, Short and O’Connor 5 mins before lockout (already have Khan). O’Connor did ok but really gained nothing against the other Striker bowlers and the other 2 were disappointing. Annoyed I missed Laughlin and Wells good scores who are 2 I generally consider strongly.

611/2 [Khan C]

Handy start for me, stoked with Ben Dunk delivering in this difficult WKP week, never once considered Nielsen and have been a Dunk owner for the entirety of the last 3-4 years so good to get some reward onfield from him finally lol.

Bravo saving himself with the bat was pleasing. His bowling tonight was some of the worst I have ever seen, where ever his field wasn't set he was delivering balls for blokes to deposit them into the stands.

@Goodie's Guns going for the weekly with 6 Strikers!:eek::eek::eek:
Hahaha not exactly but very happy with the start, identified this as a good DGW a while ago for me to target as I liked a lot of the scoring options. All started reasonably well, so here's hoping for a similar game against the Thunder who also have a weakish batting lineup like the Stars.

0/376 Khan (C)

Includes 4 scorers in Neser 83, Ingram 81, Khan 74x2 & Head 64. New recruits in Head & Neser did well. If I didn't need a keeper this round... Laughlin would have been my 3rd choice. Think I'm off to a good start, let's hope my 4 strikers continue their good performance in their second game. Can't wait for a triple header on Sunday.

Sorry, if it has been discussed before, but was Bravo on -2 after the Strikers innings because he went for too many runs?

Never seen it before, lol

No, you can get hit for 100, and get no penalty, but you do get a 1 point penalty for wides/no balls.

230/0 (4 scores)

I hesitated about bringing in Laughlin for Lehmann because I wanted to keep a trade up my sleeve. Costly - I had better find the right SGW player to bring in now!

pretty good chance to go top 5 with that start.

Anyone just look at their side and have no idea who to bench? Looking to leave out 3 of DC/Nabi/cutting/henriques/Boyce/Mujeeb/Bryant.

I’m thinking Henriques/Bryant/??? to miss

and on Sunday it could be all reversed , such is the nature of this game
You are right of course. Just got caught up with my heavy regret.

In Hindsight, Short looks like such a stupid trade-
A depleted Stars batting lineup versus a reknowned bowling outfit (where all the bowlers score 80+), and I hurriedly rush in the "allrounder" who doesn't bowl and is averaging 16 with the bat :oops:. It was his third score of 1, and he only scored above 16 once- what the hell was I thinking?
I just need to be smarter than that with my trades.

It's okay though, I have refocused this morning and am ready to cheer on my lame duck Short on Sunday! :)
