Logan Cup Round 6 (Eagles v Mountaineers & Tuskers v Rhinos)

Post by CrimsonAvenger » Thu Feb 07, 2019 12:30 am

Last round for Eagles and Rhinos. Mountaineers and Tuskers have to still play the postponed fixture later (hopefully).

Eagles on 26 points, Mountaineers on 25 and Rhinos on 24. Rhinos could maximize their points against the hapless Tuskers. This round could decide the direction in which the silverware is headed.

Looks like this is the end of the road for Mawoyo as a player. Hasn't managed anything of note despite playing multiple matches this season. Definitely a brighter future awaits in other aspects of the game...

If PJ Moor goes on in this innings he'll top the run charts for the season, obviously the Tuskers and Goats have a game in hand so either Maruma, Chari or Ervine could catch him.

Tiripano again topping the wickets list

Have the pitches eased out and become more batsmen friendly as the season progressed or have the batsmen gotten better with every match they have played?

Maruma has come into the scheme of things and has taken off like a rocket, compared to others.

Great effort from Maruma seems he has been working on his game. It would have been interesting see have he was going to do if only we had more games. But he has done enough to get back in the picture.

Masvaure is one player who I wish was more consistent. He seems really sorted to the long format.

PJ, Timcen, Prince....good work fellas. I don't have any preference on players anymore. If a batter is scoring runs, and a bowler is taking wickets, I'll have them in my national side any day. We're no longer in a position to be choosing players of personal preference, we need guys who can produce the goods.
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

But unfortunately the attacks are so weak the innings are worthless. These performances don’t indicate a whole lot. Cephas dominates. BT caliber players does not even bother. dominates. Playing Logan Cup is like the fat kid who hit puberty at 12 years old running over little kids to score try after try.
Put that fat kid witch stubble on his chin in front of proper Athletee and he gets found out 2 seconds flat.

Seems we don't have much of a choice just have to go with the form players. Chigumbura/Chibhabha back bowling and picking a few wickets guess the jury still remains on those two fellas.
