No stat tampering here. I was just cleaning the numbers.

I'll finish this in the morning with a hangover. But some of the best and worst of this round.

Alfie...834
Aidan...842
Doc...734
BFP...716

Rich...559
Al...559
Dilbert...550
Redjr...539
Yuppie...528
Andy...468
DD...455

In this round, it's marginal whether Yuppie's most questionable tactic was not having any subs, or having Moeen in the five.

Durham finally gets The Steve into play.

Cook pays off at last for Aidan and Alfie, and how, but who have a fair amount of catching up to do.

Results package can be accessed in the morning. Best wishes for 2018 from Fantasy Leagues Incorporated.

Bugrit, I get Lyono into play, and it's the only game of the series when England bat once.

Hmmm, this one is pretty tight.

Not a comfortable lead ahead of Doc though.

Doc: Smith/Starc/Warner/Hazlewood/Root
plays

Ian: Warner/Smith/Starc/Hazlewood/Bairstow

So it's Root v Bairstow with Ian 11 points ahead. Unless there's a break from the pack.

Khawaja to score big on his home ground... I hope.

Big match for those who are having Usman. 192 points already for those who have him, and still batting.
