The Bye Week Series has come to an embarrasing close, with CricketMX.com taking a clean sweep, of 2-0 in the Test series, and 3-0 in the ODI series.
In today's 3rd ODI, Saintsational.com elected to bat first, and were all out by the 15th over, for only 115. n1ck, the number 8, was top scorer with 28.
Every bowler got a piece of the action, BONGOMAN and the in-form p2p-sharing-rules each got 3 wickets, while tunebud and Burian, who was recalled for the dead rubber, each got a single. The fact that hard-hitting batsman grinch2171 got 2/10 is an indication of the Saintsational.com batting performance!
Deciding to give some of the middle order batsman some batting practise, battye stuck wanabe, and the other recalled player, moongirl, at the top of the order. wanabe struggled to make 15, while grinch2171 decided to have some fun with a quick 22. nesman (15* from 13) struck the winning runs, while moongirl (64* from 69) won the man of the match award.

So what positives can be taken from the Bye Week Series? For CricketMX.com, p2p-sharing-rules couldn't be happier with his performances, and has all but secured his spot in the side. dr sad has made an impression in the ODI's, and Rat and the docs mum have proven themselves at Test level.
For Saintsational.com, they can be thankful that HSVKing is as economical and dangerous as ever, while saint_mite and Dal_Santos_Gal are keeping the top and middle order intact.
Having said that, Saintsational.com will need to try some new blood. HarveysDeciple was a shock omission from the series after performing so well before, and saint_patrick is also close to selection one would think. This team has the potential to big, and could be the surprise packet in the SCA World Cup.
