    1st ODI - October 30
    2nd ODI - November 1

    1st Test - November 4 - 8
    2nd Test - November 10 - 14

    Support the team by posting your best wishes and if you want to get involved (requires no cricket experience) let me know.

    Why would you want to score chicks? Unless "chicks" is some New Zealand street slang for drugs that I'm not aware of.

    No Mike. Drugs are illegal.

    Bad news guys. We lost

    We got 172/1 in our 20 overs. Zcultfm got 174/1 in 18.3 overs.

    Excellent batting from our top three:

    SlitheryImp 96 Not Out
    DigitaL 37
    Nicky 39 Not Out

    SlitheryImp nearly made a century!

    See the full result here

    We'll beat them next time!

    Bad luck to Mike and the team, although it was a very close match

    From thelifeofmatthew.com
    At the moment we’re watching the cricket together and I’m trying to walk up Daddy’s tummy.
    The future Sitepoint.com XI is in safe hands

    Close game, but in the end Zcultfm.com just got over the line:
    http://www.simulationcricket.com/articles.php?r=49 -> Game Report
    http://www.simulationcricket.com/sco...t-nov_2006&g=2 -> Scorecard

    Better luck in Wednesday's game

    Once Mike (Sitepoint captain) sees your post, I'm sure he'll take you into consideration for the next ODI and the 2 Test's

    Another loss
    Well done DigitaL. Man of the Match in a losing side is no mean feat.
    Good bowling all round but especially from jake4974, fisherboy and silentcollision. We just need some wickets!

    @ kiviniar: I'm going to stick with the ODI side for the final match on Wednesday but there are changes to be made for the Tests and the selectors have been impressed by your performances this year. I can confidently predict a début appearance for you

    Thank you vice captain. Couldn't you have mentioned this before?

    Congratulations kiviniar, you've made the ODI team!
