    I know it has an element of randomness, but the 2 games that we lost - against Pindi and Cannons - we were the better team on paper on both occasions.

    Take this Pindi game for example. Our bowling was 95, 85, 85, 75. Theirs was 95, 95, 75, 65.

    Batting - We had two 95s and two 85s. They had one 95 less than us.

    They were without one Diamond player as well.

    Cannons dropped a diamond player against us too and still won.

    Can you please throw some light on significantly weaker teams beating much stronger teams? Asking because if the randomness factor is this pronounced, then might as well not waste time planning anything.

    Many thanks.
    If you see carefully the difference is not significant enough. Any team with 2 95 skill performing player is good enough to beat a team with slightly higher skilled team say 3 95 skilled player.
    However a team with one boost will have higher odds of beating no team with no boosts.

    Its a well known fact that pitches barring normal , dry and spicy tend to mess up skill effect. The more extreme the pitch the better effect they have. On a devilish pitch a team with 1 boost would have about 33% chances of beating 3 boosted team.
    You have been a pretty successful captain/vc in past. I don't think you can attribute that to just dumb luck. But luck does play a part. This game is still based on a game of dice. Odd are calculated at every ball.

    This is probably the first time i have provided every single important detail regarding sim's database. There is no hidden surprise element this time around.

    After mid season is it possible that boosts be announced after both teams have announced Line ups and toss call.

    Currently if team A announce line up with boosts and toss call before team B, then team B gets additional benefit of announcing line up and boosts in accord to team A's line up.

    I think boosts should be announced after both teams announce lineup and toss call.

    No they were a diamond player short i.e. Major. But I agree with Jeetu, it doesn't make much difference. All teams were going to be equally strong this time around with no contracts etc unless a team messed up pretty bad like MU who are going with 5 bowlers every game.

    That will just cause delay you still need to discuss boosts so people can just look at the team threads...

    @maddgenius so the same plan for mid season changes that's already in place, right?

    Still need to decide on the specific players whose roles will be changed but since nobody has showed up we can safely go and change anyone we like

    Hope the deadlines are shorter this time, not like two weeks that we saw at the start of the season.

    Tough luck @Moh@n @maddgenius, but really enjoyed the rivalry vs you guys. You guys were always the team to watch out for in my eyes - proven tacticians, and amazing with the plans. Hope to see you again next season - good luck moving forward!

    Looking forward to it!

    Not sure I'll be able to take on captaincy again. Last week or so since work has resumed it's been tough as it is but luckily the season was coming to an end anyway. Let's see when season 2 is.

    Regardless, should be fun even playing as a player, if it comes to that.

    Well played @Moh@n @maddgenius
    Assassins were the most methodical team of PPCL.
    Kept losing with narrowest of margins. If PB had played 1 ball more in T20 round 10, you would have qualified for Semi and a shot at title. And if McGrath had managed to bowl 1 lesser wides in OD final.....

    See you in next season.

    Yeah man, such is life.

    Us finishing runners up in both ODI and FC despite all those narrow losses is quite an achievement I believe.
