.. has become really batting friendly in the last few weeks. I think the main cause of this was the hints/instructions in the sign-up thread until recently discouraging people signing up as a bowlers. It's meant most of the new signups have been batting-based so we have an ALC full of really promising batsmen on the up and has been bowlers. As the season has progressed these promising young batsmen have improved and the competition has got more and more batting friendly, which the established bowlers have either stagnated or become worse. Interesting trend; just thought I'd point it out.
