    Steve Waugh led the way for the Professional XI with a brilliant century on one of his favorite grounds for batting. They finished with an intimidating first innings total of 437, which could have been a lot more if it weren't for Bill O'Reilly.

    Form is temporary, but class is permanent. The Professional XI's famed bowling lineup proved just that by bundling out perhaps the strongest batting lineup of the competition for a mere 210. Curtly Ambrose finished with figures of 5 for 29 from 17.5 overs, while the rest of the lineup chipped in with a wicket here and there. The Interwar XI were 227 runs in arrears and as a result faced the ignominy of being forced to follow-on.

    Your team is in the dumps after having endured a miserable first innings and would need to score 227 runs just to make the opposition bat again in the match. Your own form has been quite patchy by your usually unmatchable standards. What do you do in such a situation? Well, you go on to launch one of the greatest rearguards in the league's history of course. Naturally.

    If you can't dismiss them, delay them. The Professional XI were less than 30 short of their target when stumps were called on the final day. A great escape indeed for the Interwar XI.

    :facepalm Lara, what were you doing?
    The bowlers were great. Hopefully we'll continue this way.

    Clyde Walcott ended a miserable run of form to bring up his first LAB hundred in three seasons. He added 156 for the 5th wicket alongside fellow Bajan Garry Sobers, who was out once again in the 80s for the second match on the trot.

    Dale Steyn bowled his heart out for the Twenty20 Era XI to pick 4 for 85 from 35 overs despite the pitch giving little to no assistance to fast bowlers in the first innings.

    The Twenty20 Era XI replied with an ever bigger total of 527. Most of the work was done by the two South Africans in their lineup - Graeme Smith did the attacking at the top with 102 off 161 balls, while Jacques Kallis grinded the Post-war XI's bowling attack to dust with 101 off 291 balls. The lower-order featuring the likes of MS Dhoni, Mitchell Johnson and Graeme Swann collectively added a further 171 runs to their team's total to gain them a lead of 45 runs. With a little over a day remaining, it is unlikely that this match will produce a result from here.

    The legendary Charlie Turner persevered on a typically flat Dubai pitch with awe-inspiring figures of 7 for 87 from 30 overs. Though Clem Hill, KS Ranjitsinhji and Warwick Armstrong chipped in with half-centuries, the Golden Age XI couldn't have made it past 300 if it wasn't for Hugh Trumble adding some very valuable runs with the tail before falling just one short of the mark himself.

    Common sense finally prevailed in the Early Test XI camp with them finally including Jack Blackham in their lineup. His frustration at being left out despite his legendary keeping skills was evident in the way he batted to rescue his team from a precarious position with a fighting half-century from No 8. Bobby Peel also looked a great deal more comfortable batting at No 9 than No 7 where he failed quite miserably in the previous match. However, the Golden Age XI managed to secure a 34-run lead thanks to Wilfred Rhodes picking 4 for 64.

    It all became only too easy for the Golden Age XI's batsmen in their second innings where they scored their runs at almost 4 an over to set the Early Test XI a target of 377 with just 3 sessions remaining in the match. Skipper Archie MacLaren decided to return to his naturally attacking style of play rather than going with all that blocking nonsense. It did him a world of good as he brought up his first century of the season, incidentally his first ever LAB century as well.

    The Early Test XI's attempt at batting out a draw was thwarted by Hugh Trumble. They were bowled out for 187, losing their last wicket with 35 minutes to play till stumps on the final day. It was a convincing 189-run victory for the Golden Age XI after a very near miss in their previous match.

    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.

    Statistics

    To be updated after Round 3.

    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.

    Greg Chappell replaces Lara and won't bowl. Hoping Warne to finally come good.

    They had no Sachin Tendulkar, no Ricky Ponting and no Kumar Sangakkara in their lineup. They even lost the prolific Alastair Cook for a first-ball duck at the very start of their innings. That's when Graeme Smith and Rahul Dravid stood up to be counted by sharing a huge 212-run partnership to put the Twenty20 Era XI in a brilliant position. Dravid provided a Test match batting masterclass with his 150 off 339 balls.

    Dale Steyn, Mitchell Johnson, Shane Bond, Jacques Kallis.. One can't ask for a better bowling lineup in a match being played at the pace-friendly Wanderers stadium. The Golden Age XI only just managed to get past Dravid's own score before eventually being bowled out for 179.
