Winning with 8 is an achievement, you can't have had any ornaments in that side!  :)

Most of us are decent  the club has three big players the leagues record run scorer one guy who scored over 150 twice last season and a bowler who made the worcester newspapers taking ten wickets for 23 runs.

The standard  was  at times reasonable last season and previous seasons were a mismatch as a one team club we won the div 3 times I think I the last 6 seasons but couldn't get promoted any of the top 3 clubs who were one team clubs who like ourselves  had lost there second teams and  demoted into the div could have won it the rest of the div was made up of third teams.
For season 2018 the league has been reorganised with the top 4 teams getting promoted.

Hi guy just thought I would ask your opinions on the club I play for on a Sunday we are really struggling for players I have done a head count and we have 12/13 at the most to get us though the season including three players who are in there seventies and two who only played twice last season i surggested we withdraw from the league and try and get emergency fixtures when we have enough players but I been told I am being negative but think its only fair to the league we tell them the problems we have

Oh god, different country.. different problems. Here I'm in India trying to find a club to net & play some cricket. Finding it hard to locate one..

If a chap is struggling to find a game of cricket in India, the game's in worse shape than we thought!

The thing is, right, lets say you enter the league and are given 20 fixtures, but then you end up only being able to get a team out for half of them.

That's the 10 weekends where not only do your remaining players not get a game, but that's now a weekend where the opposition players don't get a game, either.

If there are a lot of teams like this in the league, you can have good clubs full of enthusiastic cricketers who hardly ever actually get a game of cricket. They have made the effort and kept all their weekends free, and now they're just left without a game. This has happened to our 2nd XI this year. One bloke I was talking to at the start of the season was super keen, available for every weekend, and he's now gone a month without playing a single game.

and guess what they do - they quit cricket, because what is the point of making the time and effort to dedicate yourself to a sport, only to never actually get to play it? You'd be better off taking up golf or something instead.

and so now another team folds. and so the cycle continues.

THIS is what is killing our game.  If you can't commit to a league - and guarantee you will fulfil every fixture, come what may, then don't enter, because all you are doing is spreading the virus.
