|Webhostingtalk.com vs Zcultfm.com
Webhostingtalk.com and Zcultfm.com have battled it out in a Test match at the WACA since Saturday, and for much of the game, it was impossible to tell exactly who had the upper hand.
The SCA newcomer was sent into bat first. All of the batsmen made starts, but nobody was able to go on to make the big score that was needed. Chameleongirl top scored with 47, while KingScott and Finnie also made it to the forties.
Slidey's 4/58 was the best bowling performance in Zcultfm.com's score of 227 after 76.1 overs.
Webhostingtalk.com captain, Equentity - Jamie, is continuing to impress the simulation cricket world, with a score of 64. His opening partner, cabalstudios, made 48, his highest Test batting performance. joomlaguy.com made 28 before being trapped LBW by Aussie500, who went on to take 3/69.
The lower middle order put on 81 runs, but the tail didn't wag. In the end, Webhostingtalk.com had a 5 run lead at the end of their second innings. Cleetus was the pick of the bowlers, with 4/34 after 17.5 overs.
Zcultfm.com second innings had the worst possible start, with the team losing Finnie (0), Zog (6) and Serj (1) in the 9 overs they batted before stumps of day 2.
Chameleongirl and Beef put on a solid partnership to give the team a chance of a respectable score, but losing Chameleongirl for 38 was a huge blow.
There were no other significant scores in the innings, despite much of the lower order scoring in to the 'teens.
Zcultfm.com went on to make 182, thanks to an unbeaten 77 from Beef. In all honest 182 was probably 60 or 70 less than what they would have been hoping for.
Chasing 178 for victory, Zcultfm.com needed early wickets to be in the hunt. But the Webhostingtalk.com openers were too good, and the first wicket (cabalstudios - 53) fell after 66.4 overs, or 137 runs.
joomlaguy.com fell for 10, and Joseph_M fell for 15. The Zcultfm.com bowlers even managed to dismiss Cifra-Jay for a duck, but it was too little too late, as Equentity - Jamie was determined to see the team through to victory.
Requiring 2 runs for victory, Equentity - Jamie was on 98, and Oonth was on strike. After getting a single, which gave Equentity - Jamie the strike, he then took 4 balls to score the winning run. This left him stranded on 99 not out, 1 short of his first Test century (and second international century).
For his 163 runs in the Test, Equentity - Jamie also went on to win the man of the match award.
