    Many of the Interwar XI's batsmen got off to very good starts on a brilliant wicket for batting, but threw it away with some poor selection, including Don Bradman who scored only 82. But their lower-order managed to add a further 176 for the last 4 wickets after they had been reduced to 269/6. Les Ames and Harold Larwood cashed in with a couple of very useful half-centuries to their names.

    Clarrie Grimmett found a good bit of turn on the SCG pitch and rounded up four of the Early Test XI's batsmen on his way to a 4-wicket haul. Billy Murdoch and the lower-order had done just enough to avoid the embarrassment of a follow-on.

    Some of the Interwar XI's batsmen seemed a bit over-cautious in their approach with the pitch beginning to deteriorate as the match progressed. It was evident in the way George Headley and Charles Macartney, two generally aggressive batsmen, grinded out a couple of very sedate half-centuries by their standards. Nonetheless, they had set the Early Test XI an extremely improbable target of 472 with a day and a half remaining in the match.

    WG Grace, the greatest of the greats from Test cricket's first decade of existence rose up to the occasion with a marvelous 126 off 287 balls. It was the good doctor's first LAB century since Season IV, thus bringing an end to a very lean period for him.

    But despite his efforts, the Early Test XI eventually failed to escape with a draw when Argentine bowling legend Clem Gibson claimed the wicket of Fred Spofforth just moments before the umpires could call it stumps on the final day. The Interwar XI had quite thrillingly prevailed by a 174-run margin.

    Having elected to bat first upon winning the toss, the Post-war XI were given a torrid time by Curtly Ambrose and Wasim Akram on a pitch that had a lot more life in it than expected. The pair combined to pick 8 of the 10 wickets to fall during the innings, with Ambrose claiming 4 for 50 from 23 overs and Akram 4 for 48 from 21.

    Viv Richards was the only player to go past 50 in the Professional XI lineup. The rest either squandered good starts or simply failed to get going against a strong bowling attack consisting of Fred Trueman, Alan Davidson and Lance Gibbs among others. The Professional XI gained a slender 34-run lead in the process.

    Finally, after having endured his most miserable run of form since this league's inception, Shane Warne was back to his best. He picked 5 for 45 from 27 overs, conceding at just above a run an over during a marvelous display of leg spin bowling. The Post-war XI had set their opponents a very achievable target of 215 with the best part of 2 days remaining in the match.

    They very nearly made a total mess of it, but for Adam Gilchrist's heroic knock of 63 off just 74 balls. The explosive left-hander took them to a victory which seemed very unlikely when they were reduced to 151/8 at one stage. He added 40 runs for the 9th wicket alongside Curtly Ambrose, who obediently rotated the strike while blocking out the Post-war XI's bowlers during his 41-ball stay for only 7 runs. Things got a little more tricky when he was dismissed by Alan Davidson, leaving the Professional XI to depend on Glenn McGrath's batting skills for survival once again.

    [​IMG]

    But once again, he didn't disappoint and hung on for 9 deliveries which was enough for Gilchrist to see the job done. The Professional XI had brought up their first victory of the competition after having endured two very close draws. So ended perhaps the most thrilling game of cricket this league has ever seen; the only serious rival being the match between Australia A and Pakistan in Season V, which the Australians had won by a 1-run margin.

    Overall good game... Absense of our captain Hurt us a lot... Had he been there, we might have been a little better in our batting.

    Lineup rules

    1) A proper wicket-keeper (:wk:/:wkb:/:arwk:) in your XI.
    2) A minimum of 4 players marked to bowl. I would suggest a minimum of 5 for matches on flat pitches to keep your frontline bowlers from total exhaustion.
    3) Players ruled out due to injury cannot be selected.
    5) The time limit for posting lineups is 96 hours. I will likely go with a random lineup if your lineup isn't posted within that time.
    6) You must also ensure all your associate players (:pst:) get at least one game over the course of the main tournament.

    Player rarities

    In each squad, players have been marked with these icons to give you a fair idea of their playing skills and overall usefulness to your team.

    :purpo: - Legend. Used for the players that are undoubtedly the best of the lot.
    :goldo: - Gold. Used for players with a high level of consistency and ability to deliver during key moments.
    :redo: - Ruby. Used for players that are extremely talented and can play in a way no one else can replicate.
    :slvo: - Silver. Used for players that aren't as talented as their Gold/Ruby/Legend contemporaries, but still capable of holding their own against the best in business.

    Explanation on pitch types

    Dusty - Plenty of turn on offer for spinners and a good place to bat for spin-savvy batsmen. Good pace bowlers are still likely to thrive.
    Evenly balanced - Provides an evenly balanced contest for all disciplines.
    Flat - A batsman-friendly pitch which provides little or no assistance to bowlers. Expect big totals.
    Green - A lot of movement on offer, which makes it ideal for bowlers capable of swinging the ball.
    Hard - Ideal conditions for batting. Good deal of bounce on offer for fast bowlers as well. Could go either way.
    Dry/Slow - Ideal for slow and spin bowlers as the name suggests. Sometimes quite difficult to bat on.

    Being given mostly flat subcontinental pitches to bowl on until now, a pace-friendly venue like Headingley was a welcome relief for Glenn McGrath who took his first five-fer of the season. He claimed 5 for 68 from 31 overs, including the wicket of his old nemesis Sachin Tendulkar for 11. The Professional XI had bowled out the Twenty20 Era XI to gain themselves a 64-run lead.

    Dale Steyn went from strength to strength as the match progressed, claiming his second five-fer of the match to take his tally to 10 wickets. In doing so he became the first bowler to claim a match ten-fer in the season. The Professional XI had been reduced to 141/5 as a result of his initial burst which saw him claim the wickets of Richards, Border and Chappell - three of the biggest names in their middle-order. Adam Gilchrist and Steve Waugh battled on to add 92 for the 6th wicket to help get their team's lead past 300. They eventually set the Twenty20 Era XI a challenging target of 320, which isn't the easiest to chase in the 4th innings of a Test match.

    In the first innings it was McGrath, and this time it was Wasim Akram. The Pakistani left-arm swing bowler devastated the Twenty20 Era XI lineup to claim an awe-inspiring 6 for 34 from 20 overs. The quality of his wickets said it all - Sangakkara, Dravid, Kallis, Tendulkar, de Villiers & Dhoni. The Professional XI celebrated a very convincing 117-run victory to take themselves to the top of the Season VIII standings.
