Chasing 180 under 15 was never going to be easy. It was disheartening to see them go out like this. But they can take the experience, learn from it, and come back stronger next season!

I echo Night_Wolf bro's words. You see, I'm playing with 14 players just because I was late visiting BC. You all had the advantage whereas I can't look at replacements. Dwayne Smith as an alrounder scored less than 50 in 5 games n I have no backup allrounder.

But that round had nothing to do with coming in late though. Remember, it was a free-for-all round. You could have come in at anytime you wanted to. You and T_E's issue was that you two both picked players from outside the list. T_E picked 2, so his other one had to go. You picked 3, and you already had 1 during regular draft. So all 3 had to go. IDK why you two picked that many outer players.

Ok, so the list was there and I picked from it. No one had any complaints when I declared my 17. Now you're asking me to give up one of my key bowlers in the middle of the tournament - how's that fair? You're thinking about the other GMs, but no one made a noise when the squads were finalized at the end of the draft. You can't ask me to change my strategy so drastically right before the P/O.

No one, including yourself knew about this injury. Mainly because no one here checks the Afg news, I doubt anyone does. If they did, you wouldn't have had him at all or had to play with 16 players. He has been great for your team and helped you through to the playoffs. It's fair in a sense that while everyone else had to bench their injured players, big players too, such as Lee, Vettori, Gayle, Sanga but you had to chance to use Hamid. So it would be slightly fair for the other GMs if you don't have Hamid from here on. It's already more than fair on you because you already had the service of Hamim when you shouldn't have.

Once again it is my fault that this one got through under the radar. But if you can't take this then you are only holding it against me and not willing to accept my mistakes. Which is unfair on me.

Damn Australia had to play Afg right now? Couldn't they wait a bit!! :mad:

Where's all the talk about the MLC not being a bogus administrative body like the ICC now? Hamid Hassan is perfectly fit now and yet he'll have to sit out - it doesn't make any sense. It's like doing two wrongs to try and make a right, just like the ICC. But two wrongs don't make a right. Again, not my fault that his injury was missed - if the other GMs had a problem they should have voiced their concerns BEFORE the end of the draft, not when I was on the brink of making it to the playoffs. You had a list, I picked from it, so this is by no means like some of the other teams who sneaked in a player or two extra from outside the list and had to end up with < 17 players.

Hamid Hassan should play, it's the right thing to do. It was already unfair to have to play without him in the last game, a do or die one at that too.

Hamid Hasan's injury was bound to pop out after today's Aus v Afg game. I'm just glad it didn't come out once World Series was over and Hamid ended up winning the MVP or something.

Is that a threat? Because if it is, the Tyrants management will have to go back and rethink their involvement in the league. YOU made the mistake, CEO, it's on you to fix this. You can't change things in the middle of the league as you see fit.

Solution to Hamid Hasan:

if all GM's agree to let TT play Hamid Hasan, then I think, they should.

some faults even lie on all the GM's for missing the injury.

we should have a vote all GM's if ATMR and Dilscoop agree?

I vote Hamid Hasan should be allowed to play for TT.

I am sure all other GM's will allow TT to play Hamid Hasan, its a human error.

No it's not a threat. It's another suggestion.

And yes, and I accepted that. And I'm trying my best to fix it and make it fair on everyone. You had 5 games where Hamid Hasan should've have played and now I'm saying Hamid Hasan should sit out 5 games to even that out. That's the only option I have since I don't have a time machine...

Yes, I know you followed the orders, yes I know you didn't make any mistake, yes it was my mistake that I didn't see that Hamid Hasan was injured. Tyrants should've have to pay for my mistake. But they already had to luxury of getting a huge benefit out of my mistake.

Yet another batting failure from the Rangers. They never got going, wicket tumbling consistently through out the inning. Through out the tournament in fact. This line-up never really gelled together. On the other hand Pittsburgh Pirates' batting line up has been on a beast mode since their first game loss. They really got along well and scored over 165 runs consistently and chased down high totals. So 129 was never gonna be a easy to defend against this batting line up.

With that the Bulls will go through to the playoffs and the Rangers will join the Flyers to look back at a not so great outing.

Since this simulation is about luck in my opinion seed no. 1 and 2 deserve more security since they finished at no. 1 and 2. If no. 1 loses to no. 4 then thats unfair for no. 1 because after all the wins they get knocked out so cheaply. I suggest this.

First match: South 1 v South 2 (loser in this match versus winner in other match, winner goes onto next round)
Second Match: South 4 v South 3 (loser in this match gets knocked out)

For example if South 1 beat South 2 then South 1 qualify. South 2 would have to beat the winner from second match to qualify. I reckon this method is better as it rewards the top teams for doing well throughout the whole season.

But that round had nothing to do with coming in late though. Remember, it was a free-for-all round. You could have come in at anytime you wanted to. You and T_E's issue was that you two both picked players from outside the list. T_E picked 2, so his other one had to go. You picked 3, and you already had 1 during regular draft. So all 3 had to go. IDK why you two picked that many outer players.

Yes I remember man, but one thing you need to consider is that you gave a deadline of 20 hours to re-fix that while I was sleeping and busy with other things. Thus when I got up from sleep, I came to know that the deadline was over by a few minutes already. Anyways, you're the CEO. Do what you think is best. But just wanted to let you know that playing with 13 and a half players leaves me very little options.

You go to the first page, either of the preliminary roster or Draft thread. Do a ctrl+F from your browser (apple+f for the OSX users) and put in the name you are looking for. If you do this in the Draft thread, you can be sure that the person WAS in the draft and whether he has been drafted.

^ Takes about 2 sec. This only takes me back to the crazy draft days.

Yes I remember man, but one thing you need to consider is that you gave a deadline of 20 hours to re-fix that while I was sleeping and busy with other things. Thus when I got up from sleep, I came to know that the deadline was over by a few minutes already. Anyways, you're the CEO. Do what you think is best. But just wanted to let you know that playing with 13 and a half players leaves me very little options.
...
Take Mahmudullah as an example. He played for Basnahira and was picked in the middle of the tourney. (Just saying. Not a good example I know as Afridi was injured but I HAVE 3 vacancies)

I wasn't talking about the deadline. I mean IDK why you decided to take all your players from outside the list in the first place. Anyways. I gave the playoff teams a 2nd chance to fill in the roster spots. Check the draft threads. You have until tomorrow. So don't miss it this time.

Or it could be that it actually involves the whole World? Other leagues from Aus, Eng and Ind etc in the past failed to recognize that and therefore vanished. We on the other hand realize it this event doesn't evolve around the Americans only, but the whole World. And we recognize that and we'd like to share it. And it also adds more values to the cup. No one cares about wining some Indian Map-marka cup, except the Indians. But this goes out to the whole world, not just the cities' names printed on the jerseys.

A Zimbabwean can win a World Series cup and own it, because it's World's Trophy, you don't have to be an American to own it. An Afghanies can feel proud of their countryman, even through he plays wearing a Canadian jersey, because the Cup doesn't belong to Canada only. An OZ can head home and brag more about winning a WS Cup than some BBL nonsense.

While you GMs may have drafted players from top 12 nations, this league made up players over 20 nations, that's bigger than any ICC world cup of the past. It's the WORLD SERIES.

It's bigger than all of us. That's why it's called the World Series.:)

For example who really follows the baseball world series beside American, some Japanesse, Puerto Rican, Dominicans and some other random South American coutries. Beside if it's about the players involvment from different part of the world shouldn't the entire tournament be called World Series? But its not it's called MLB. Only the final is called the World Series. How you gonna call a team the world champion when the most of the world are not even involved.

"MLB" is the league's name, not tournament's name. And yup, exactly, it's called MAJOR League Baseball. Not American Baseball Premier League or American BigBash/Friendslife blah blah league. It's the MAJOR league open to all professionals from all countries.

All in all, the World Series does sound a bit arrogant in baseball, but applies more appropriately to MLC than MLB and it does make it more prestigious than just calling "American Baseball/Cricket League."

That's the toughest question, ever. (Honestly, I moved away from my MLC-unbaised chair and thought about it, I couldn't ans it.)

Based on the batting we have seen so far, it looks pretty even-steven, even with home field advantages to the Pirates. Bowling wise too. One line up is filled with MLC leading performers and other is filled with big names. But I think Pirates edges the Tyrants on this. With Warner, Kohli and BBM, fielding will have to be TT, no doubt. But Pirates do have Hussey.

We'll see.

Although their batting line up may not be as starstruck as the Tyrants, the Pirates batting line up has really gelled well more than any other line up in the league. Even in this game, they got really close to taking over that target. They had already defeated the Tyrants chasing a similar high target in the regular season.

Yup. The attack became too bland, with Mathews being the only bowler with a long run up. Nannens did well because of the support from Heat spinners. Malinga probably would have done better.

Miami took the home advantage. An underdog got through. 2 more underdogs left for the next set of games. Could be a dream run for them if they can knock out the top 2 teams in the league. ESP for Kings, considering they were out of it all and getting a 2nd shot. So they will be fired up.

I appreciate the kind words from both of you guys. @Ajfar my team has regularly scored 160+ so getting bundled under 140 was never the issue. The only thing i was worried about is trying to get the top 3 batsmen out (Warner, McCullum, Kohli). I was confident i can do that because i had beaten TT before but it just wasnt to be this time. The loss of 4 runs makes it even more devastating. Im happy with what my team accomplished. The weakpoint in my team is the bowling as i didnt have that one strike bowler.

I guess thats it for me. My campaign is over. My time at MLC is over. Had loads of fun. Again thanks for the kind words Dillu bhai and Ajfar. Id like to commend on Dilscoop's effort to make MLC happen. Good job bro. And most importantly may the best team win.

Boston Celtics exit! Biggest upset of the season! A 4-1 team was crushed out of the playoffs by a team that didn't have a playoff seat until the last game of the regular season! Bulls were red hot in all 3 departments. Even with a huge home field advantage Celtics couldn't stop the Bulls. Their lack of big names in the top order finally costs them. In the regular season they had managed to win close games thanks to the SA ALR A Morkel. But tonight they truly looked like the underdog.

Congrats Chitown Bull!

LA getting a 2nd chance and making full use of it. These 2 teams didn't have much rivalry before, but they surely do now. Washington Nationals aren't happy about this result and rightly so. Nationals are the 2nd team to be shocked, at home, by an underdog and a "last min" team. Nationals' form had dipped in the last 2 games and they will have to take a closer look at themselves for the future.

First of all, WOW! That was some game we'd just witnessed. It will go down as one of the best games of the season! WOW! After an inning full of quick cameos from the Tyrants' batsmen, it was all about Hamid Hasan, dominating with the ball. Sehwag was the key wicket in this chase and the Afghani quick got rid of him early. Bulls' top order crumbled under 15 runs. But the game was never over when the likes of Pollar, Pathan and Mahmood, all hard hitting finishers were waiting to follow each other. The Bulls never stopped fighting. They took the game down the wire. But they did fail to take the Bulls over the line. Needing only 9 to win from the last over with Pathan and Mahmood in the middle, with 5 wickets in hand, everyone in the Wrigley stadium thought they would be back here next week to watch the first game of the World Series. But it was not to be. Clark had already bowled a maiden over against Pollard delivered a great last over, and shut out the Bulls.

Congratulations Tyrants, you are going through to the world series!

Final: Los Angeles Kings won by 43 runs.
Man of the Match: Abdur Razzaq
Series: 1-0 Kings



Report: LA Kings won the toss and not surprising chose to bat first on a pitch that is known for high scoring battles. Gibbs provided the early big hits for the Kings, with text book shots from the little master at the other end. Young Tyrants' quick Hamid Hasan, who has been brilliant through out the season looked far off his game, going at 15 per over in first spell, eventually finishing his figures wicketless. Gibbs entertaining innings, not for the home crowd though, lasted for only 15 balls and Tendulkar was joined by the other fine-tune lefty Kumar Sangakkara in the 5th over at 60/1. Together they took the Kings past 150, before the 15h over. Kings looked to go well beyond 180 at this point but their middle order failed to push on once Tendulkar was bowled by Herath as he tired to accelerate. Followed my a mixup between Sangakkara and David Hussey. Razzak closed the Kings' inning with couple of late hits.

Loud cheer followed the duos as they walked out for the first time in the world series. But the crowd was quite just within 4 deliveries as Razzaq got rid of Warner for a duck, but not for long. In form and regular season MVP continued to strike from the other end. McCullum brought up the 2nd fastest fifty of the 2012 season, and fastest of the World Series, in just 22 balls. Razzak was unable to tackle McCullum, but the other low-order all rounder Irfan Pathan got rid the danger man in his 2nd over. And things only went down hill from there for the TT. Unable to keep up with the RRR, thanks to some tight bowling and great defense, Tyrants eventually gave up the chase.

All 4 top order batsmen from both sides were considered for the MoM award, but it was Razzak's all-round performance that deservedly won the prize. High flying Kings will take on the Tyrants for the 2nd game of the series tomorrow.

LA Kings done the unbelievable! They've breezed through to a 2-0 lead and now they will have the home advantage! Tendulkar, clutch! What a series he's having so far, leading his team from the front.

Critics will point fingers at the Tyrants' batting, but it's their defense that let a shaky batting order post 170+ in back-back games, in the World Series! But of course their world class batting line up known for their chasing is failing to click at the most crucial time.

Kings are no longer the underdogs in this series. But their middle order will have fire soon because Tendulkar-Gibbs won't be scoring every day. Otherwise they could be facing a similar scenario like the Tyrants. They will fly home to LA tonight and will be looking to close the series at home. Tyrants letting their "favorite" tag work against them. They will have to find themselves again and bring the series back to Toronto for game 6 and 7.

What's happening!! If the Tyrants play like this, this series will be over by game 4! Not good! They just have to survive the next 2 games. And the Kings would like to finish it at home.

Fans get your votes in!

Scored 180+ all season and failing now, when it matters most.

I will be honest, I did not expect this from either team. I def thought it would be 2-0 Tyrants, at best (for LA) 1-1. Kings really having a dream run since Denver got kicked out.

I guess the simulator was coded in Opposite World. :)

Btw, Imran Farhat shouldn't be bowling, but the simulator keeps giving him an over every game and one or the other of my top bowlers ends up falling short of his quota.

I don't know why he bowls. His bowling is turned off and it's rated pretty low.

Game 3
World Series I

(I have been playing too much Madden 13 lately, so I had to do a quick star rating matchup.)

Based on recent forms LA Kings get half extra star or else it would have been 2.5-3 at the beginning of the series. And they are behind even with home field advantage-- that's based on what it looks like on the sim.

Toronto Tyrants, even down 2, still as dangerous as they were. Except, their middle order was never test up until now (besides Kohli), thanks to the dynamic duo. They didn't get much game time so it's hurting their Form ratios. They have been exposed in the World Series and they are suffering.

Also notice how they haven't had the chance to bat first in this series yet. Tendulkar has been 100% in toss so far. Well tonight, Kohli will get a chance to call, lets see if we can have the duos in front the TV early.)

Toss: Sachin Tendulkar has won the toss for the 3rd time in the World Series. And take a guess? Yes, Kings will be batting first again. Since playoffs Kohli's 3-3 in Toss.

(Full score to follow. No in games...)

As much as I'm happy for the Kings, this is NOT good from our marketing prospective! We want game 7 (at least 6 at this point)!! Tyrants! What's up!?

Every match tyrants bowling is leaking runs..not just in the WS but also entire MLC, Toronto got through the WS because of their strong Batting lineup but that line up cant handle the pressure of a chase

if not batting 1st i see no chance for the tyrants

I tried to recruit good batsmen, but it came at the expense of good potential bowlers.
