    Home Ground Characteristics Discussion:

    Considering our best skilled bowling attack will consist of three fast, one fast-medium and one leg spinner, I was thinking we should set our ground as follows:

    Ground - Arbab Niaz Stadium
    Bounce - High
    Seam - Good
    Swing - Good
    Spin - Average
    Deterioration - Low

    Thoughts ?

    Perfect

    I think the lower order is a bit too weak. I'd swap myself with Hadi and come in (hide ) at #5 to bolster that a bit.

    Rest looks fine!

    Thanks Bro, your dedication and hardwork has got Sir Misbah thinking about having you in cabinet as minister rather than SAPM.

    You are just insecure of being possibly outscored by a superior batting partner

    Sounds good. Although to keep a left, right combo going, instead of you, we can swap Azzuri with Hadi.

    Instead of Gregory I would go for Azlan or Malik for some spin. Other then that looks good!

    There ground charecteristic is highly seamer friendly. It might be risky to select a AR spinner with low skillset.

    In spicey variation, early wickets will definitely fall, so a bowling AR might give us 20-25 extra runs.

    Yes in such matches it's better to put a bowler up there

    For Round 4, have moved you down to No.4 on home ground at Normal variation. @Square Drive moves to No.3.

    Its our 2nd home match, so need to win all matches at home ground I believe.

    5th Round is against Karachi at there ground which supports fast bowlers. They have chosen a 'Dry Pitch Variation' which is a high scoring condition around 190-200 runs. We won today against Lahore on normal pitch, so should we keep the same batting order for dry conditions or promote our Platinum international 'Haider Ali' at No.3.

    I was thinking we should keep the same batting order as maddgenius suggested. Team has to be submitted today so will wait for few hours before submitting.

    Thoughts ?

    I think I should be benched skipper as the ground conditions won't suit spin and the fact its a high scoring pitch could mean we play an all rounder to boost the batting order.

    Dry pitch might have something for spinner even though there gound characteristics has low spin. Secondly, I think on a high scoring variation, we will need best skilled bowlers, so dropping a 80 points player for a 60 skill bowler doesn't seem right.

    You are playing tomorrow, that's certain.

    Mid Season Contract Swap

    Teams are allowed total 3 contact swap from regular local players and International player.

    Teams captains are allowed 2 contract swap within a team (non international player).

    And 1 Internation Platinum swap (to either existing regular International or from unpicked International).


    The deadline to make any contract swap changes is Wednesday, 8th April, 2020 at 23:59 GMT.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mid Season
    Player Type Changes


    The team captains and the individual players can mutually agree to change player types if they wish, whether it be a personal decision or a decision to benefit the team.

    All changes to player types must be confirmed by the player and his Team Captain in this thread. If the player doesn't confirm the change, it will go through automatically by 24 hours of deadline.

    Changing both player type and/or bowling/batting hand for a single player constitutes as ONE change towards the quota. Changing anything again will count as another separate change, so make sure you get it right the first time. Each team is allowed 2 free player type changes.

    All requests must have both the Team Captain and player in question tagged.

    Format for posting player type changes (The changes must be posted in the following format, including the batting/bowling hand):

    I would like to change [Player Name] from a (current role) to a (new role) - Player type change #(1, 2 or 3).

    The deadline to make any changes is Wednesday, 8th April, 2020 at 23:59 GMT.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We have mid-season break and allowed few changes as mentioned above. Our current record is 2 wins and 3 loses, our both wins came at home venue and from our remaining 5 matches, we have three at home.

    I am thinking of making following changes :

    1. Sunny_majoka hasn't posted anything since we formed our team, so no point playing him all games as gold member. Instead we have @Azlan Khan who was very motivated and posted here when selected in our squad. I think we can change his player type to RFM bowler and give him gold contract, like this he will be in playing XI and be more involved as PPCL is all about ppers involvement and fun.

    2. Secondly, Wahab Riaz as LF bowler (International Platinum) has been very inconsistent, we can replace him with Hasan Ali (RFM bowler) . Our gold Fast-medium has done well at home venue so he could do better as our new International Platinum.

    3. Thirdly, our spinner has been leaking lots of run so I was wondering maybe we can upgrade Hamad_H contract to Diamond and make him an Off-spinner just to bring control to run-rate. Lastly for the benefit of the team @shahidafridi123 can be our gold RF bowler.

    We have till 8th April to make these changes so please provide your input and thoughts.

    I agree with the first two!

    The third one I'm not too sure about - a high-ranked spinner can be a little iffy.

    Also, I'd be happy to give up my diamond contract if need be as it's not of much use anyway atm . Let me know if you think this needs to happen.

    I agree with the proposals but not too sure about the 3rd one. High contract pacer is much more useful I'd say.

    Also, I'd propose that we open with Haider Ali and push me down to 3

    First two are fine.. I think It's better to upgrade a fast bowler than a spinner

    Thanks for your input guys.

    ok, I will implement the first two points and keep Hamad at gold contract but change him as an offspinner which might give him better economy.

    The third one I'm not too sure about - a high-ranked spinner can be a little iffy.

    Also, I'd be happy to give up my diamond contract if need be as it's not of much use anyway atm . Let me know if you think this needs to happen.
    What about I give you a platinum contract to strengthen our fragile batting, swap with
    @maddgenius who is platinum LF bowler ?

    We mostly play with only 6 specialist batsmen, so need the middle-order strong enough to stop a collapse. We both as Gold openers should just see-off early 3 overs.

    Alright skip.

    Hopefully I can repeat that MOTM performance from the 1st match.

    I am considering another change aswell:

    Swaping platinum contract of maddgenius with Squaredrive (diamond) to boost our batting which has collapsed in crucial moments in previous few matches ?

    Thoughts ?

    Good idea

    Our batting is fragile.

    Need a couple of consistent batsmen for sure.

    We can do that or we can also change someone to a high contract bowling AR to play as a decent 5th bowler and gives us a bit of batting depth too. Our tail gets exposed almost every game around 15th over

    Sorry skip @Manager101 - just capping off the uni year so been quite busy with exams etc.

    As far as the team changes go, they are brilliant and I hope they work out for us. I did find some time a couple of days ago to reply regarding swapping me and Maddy G, but for some reason PP was very slow on my end and I guess it didn't go through. My thoughts were that MaddyG has been doing well with the platinum and has been consistent. Having said that, our batting has been our weak link so I'm hoping this change works well for the team and I can start performing at a Ritzy-esque level.

    Looking back, I think @maddgenius's suggestion of a higher ranked A/R was a good one. But I think what we can do is open with a tailender and play the WK (aka Manager) down at #7 to provide some cushion.

    Overall, it looks good and I hope we can get back to our winning ways!

    For our next game, Islamabad has named a flat pitch, which should suit us hopefully now with our batting being further strengthened.

    I suggest the following XI:

    @Manager101* (WK)
    #Haider Ali
    @Hadi Rizvi
    @ritzy_123
    @Square Drive (VC)
    @Azzurri
    @maddgenius
    #Hasan Ali
    @shahidafridi123
    @Azlan Khan
    @Hamad_H

    Toss: Bowl first

    I don't think we need a cushion at #7 on a flat pitch, but I'd say have a platinum at #5 (myself, since Ritzy is doing well at #4) and then a diamond at 6 to sort of strengthen that lower-middle order that can then take the game deep and finish it off, especially in a chase - which we will be guaranteed to do if we bowl first since IU have opted to bat first.

    Azzurri has finished a game off well at 6 before. Apart from that I'm hoping I get going with a higher contract and at #5. Hadi also needs to get going so I suggest move him to #3 since he opened last game.

    Bowling is pretty self-explanatory; no all-rounders needed on a flat pitch so stick with the specialists.

    Thoughts?

    So far our record on the different pitches reads:

    Normal: W2, L1
    Dry: L1
    Spicy: L1

    Dry doesn't suit us because of the solitary spinner but I feel like because we're batting heavy now, flat might actually work in our favour. We have to name the pitch for our round 7 home game at the same time as our XI for the round 6 game so we won't be able to see how we perform on a flat pitch before that game which sucks. But I'm tempted to go for a flat pitch for that home game.

    Thoughts? @Manager101 @ritzy_123 @maddgenius @Azzurri

    You're batting way too low for a platinum batsman on a flat pitch. I'd swap you with Hadi, rest is fine

    Yeah with such a strong batting line up, flat makes sense

    Sorry for late reply, I have been busy with RL stuff.

    Thanks for your input bro, I have made some tweaks to your line-up, considering Islamabad has weak bowling and they have chosen a flat pitch.

    Hopefully, we can get the much needed win tomorrow.
