Very good Squad. Good Openers, Great middle order batters and an even better selection of Pace bowling All Rounders. Good Opening bowlers as well.
Major weakness in my opinion is Spin bowling
August 13, 2012, 03:25 AM
Thanks for the opinion Jadukor! Yes I sort of planned it that way, have part time spinners in D.Hussey & Stirling who are more than capable spinners in T20 and have a good economy as well. Also, got Adil Rashid, the leggie who has been fairly consistent in the County Friends Life T20.
Even Rohit Sharma can chip in if needed.
August 13, 2012, 07:04 AM
I'm eager to see playing XI as I think this team has the potential to rank among the best
August 13, 2012, 08:53 AM
This is a really good team, a lot of hard hitters. Little weak on the bowling side.
August 14, 2012, 01:31 PM
LA Kings won their WU match against Toronto Tyrants by 19 runs.
LA Kings 174/5
Toronto Tyrants 155/7
MoM: Abdul Razzaq 28(14) & 3/26
August 15, 2012, 12:19 AM
Ready for our upcoming match? ;)
I'm pretty sure this is going to be the hardest match for me in the round-stages.
August 16, 2012, 05:03 PM
Sad that we couldn't beat the Washington Nationals. But a great game nonetheless.
Disappointed with AB's innings Expected him to be flying, very unlike AB to be going well below 100.
And specifically started with Mitchell Marsh instead of Samit to provide more batting power in the lower half, could not do much.
And didn't expect Hilfenhaus to go for almost 10 an over whose career economy rate is around 6.5.
Can't wait for the next game.
August 21, 2012, 12:53 PM
Lost the 2nd game by 5 runs to Miami Heat.
Serious pressure to win the remaining matches.
Next game against Denver Broncos.
August 21, 2012, 12:58 PM
^ Close game. Tough loss, but good game.
August 21, 2012, 01:22 PM
It's very irritating to lose two games by 4 & 5 runs.
August 21, 2012, 09:35 PM
i dont know what the sim is smoking but AB going around a SR of 85-90?, that too for 2 consicutive matches!..may be you should change his batting position
August 22, 2012, 12:24 AM
Yes that's the plan Night_wolf
August 23, 2012, 01:28 AM
LA Kings recorded their maiden win in the MLC with a thumping 58 runs victory over Denver Broncos. Adil Rashid was MoM for his fig of 4/18.
Glad to have won my only home match.
August 23, 2012, 01:41 AM
Good win for you. Adil Rashid has 8 wickets now!
August 23, 2012, 01:42 AM
Congrats on the first crushing win.
And you too have only 1 home game? You were suppose to let me know about that. I fixed most of that. Fixed yours too. Now you have 1 more home game to go against the Cowboys.
August 23, 2012, 01:45 AM
Isnaad, yes. He's risen up to the occasion and grabbed his opportunity. I didn't think he would feature in the XI but since the game against Nationals, he has done pretty well.
Dilscoop, thanks for another home game :)
August 24, 2012, 12:26 AM
LA Kings lost to KC Chiefs by 8 wickets
Qualifying for the playoffs pretty much impossible now. :(
August 24, 2012, 02:11 AM
Nevertheless, very good show by the Kings :applause:
I'm sure Kings will be even better in the upcoming matches :up:
August 25, 2012, 01:25 PM
We won our last match at home but Denver Broncos won their match under the guidance of the new GM. So we don't progress any further.
It was a good fight but the early losses, by 4 & 5 runs, did it for us IMO.
But we will be back next season, stronger & tougher.
Till then, keep partying like Paris Hilton and Prince Harry!
August 25, 2012, 07:49 PM
You guys aren't through yet. Well you are through to the playoffs. So congrats! :)
August 25, 2012, 11:04 PM
