1st T20 World Cup [rosters, roleplays, results]

Recommended Posts


Please do not post in this thread if you are not a participant. Also, no OOC posts, please.

Welcome to the 1st T20 World Cup! This is an international Cricket tournament with Twenty20 International rules. If you are a participant, you can start posting about your nation's cricket team (logo, players, kits, and any other related information). You can also post about your team's preparations for this event!

Another important thing to include in your roster post is the "role play permissions". If you want to role play while making sure that the other RPer(s) won't do inevitable things you don't want to happen to your team, you can post these below outlining what the other RPers can or cannot do, for example:

Injure my players: yes/no
Dismiss batmen: yes/no
Deliberate unfair play: yes/no
Godmod injuries: yes/no
Godmod scoring: yes/no
Godmod other events: yes/no

The last three permissions, godmodding, is the role playing unrealistic or unbelievable things happening. So if you want a more realistic experience for your team (and what we hopefully want in the games for the duration of the tournament), you can ask other RPers not to godmod in your matches. You can also add, leave, or remove any role permissions you want. It's your team, so we will let you dictate the way your team plays (as long as it is realistic).

Also, you can include what we call a "style modifier". This is a number between -5 and +5, which indicates if you are a defensive (leaning to negative numbers) or an offensive (leaning to positive numbers) team. If you don't put one, you'll automatically get a neutral modifier (0.00), and that is just fine.

If you have any questions, you can always ask me in Discord. You can DM me or drop your question in #twenty20_one of the RP server. You can also ask me in the OOC thread.

The host of the 1st T20 World Cup is:


The Great Empire of Larxia

The Great Empire of Larxia is a nation in the western part of Andolia, bordering Irador in the west, and Daskel in the South. It is the most-populous country in the continent with about 25.5 million Larxians. The Central Government convenes in the capital city of New Larxia. The climate is usually temperate with distinct seasons and bearable heat. The climate is a little oceanic in the west but gets a little extreme(continental) towards the Eastern border of the country.



Cities hosting the World Cup:

New Larxia- It is the capital city of the Great Empire of Larxia. With a population of 3.4 million, it is the most populated city in Larxia. It is located in close proximity to the sea, which makes it very important for marine trade.

Nexilia- It is the technological capital of Larxia. It is also known as the Silicon Valley of Larxia. Most of the tech firms in Larxia call this city their home. 

San Dojas- It is one of the most important cities for the sports in nation. It is a little sparsely populated compared to the other cities because it houses expansive, state of the art sports complexes.

La Marina- As the name suggests, it is close to marine life. It is famous for the marine life that cannot be experienced anywhere else. The main selling point of the tourism of La Marina is the lake we Larxians like to call the Lake Falcon.

Zancoudo- It is located in the  mountainous region in the North of Larxia. It is a small range but the the mountains are pretty high.This city houses the highest and the most beautiful stadium in the world and the views from the stadium are breathtaking.



Stadiums to be used for the World Cup:

1.King's Circle Stadium
Capacity: 132,000
Location: New Larxia
Used only for the Finals



2.NCG Stadium
Capacity: 92,000

With 15 registered nations, the Loremasters and the Lorekeepers decided to include 1 Non-Playing Character (with no bonuses to be given and with neutral style modifier), also hailing from Doll Guldur, to have all continents represented. With that, we have 16 playing nations. They will be divided into four (4) groups with four (4) teams each. Nations will play with all nations found in their group once. A win is given two (2) points, a draw is given one (1) point, and a loss is given zero (0) points. The two (2) nations with the most number of points in their respective groups will progress to the Super Eight. The progressing eight (8) teams will be divided into two (2) groups with four (4) teams each, playing with all nations found in their group once, with the same point tally for every outcome of their games, and same qualification for the knock-out rounds (top 2 nations in the 2 groups of Super Eight will proceed to the knock-out rounds). The knock-out rounds will start with a cross-over semi-final game to determine who will be playing in the championships. When points are tied, number of wins, result of head-to-head meetings, and the NRR (Net Run Rate) of tied teams are checked to break the tie.

(Excuse the OOC, but) Starting with this tournament, we will also be giving a whole-day RP day. While the results will be posted on 9 PM EDT, the posting of the results of the next match day will be 48 hours after the posting of the results of the previous match day. For example, for the 1st Match Day of the First Round, the results will be posted on May 10 9 PM EDT. May 11 will be an RP Day. We hope that it would increase and improve role play interaction between nations. The cut-off for role play on that match day will still be an hour before posting the results of the next match day. In the previous example, the cut-off for role play will be on May 12 8 PM EDT, and posting of the results of the 2nd Match Day of the First Round will be on May 12 9 PM EDT.

The scheduling of round robin games are as follows:

R1 Match Day 1               Super 8 Day 1
3 vs 2                           C vs B
1 vs 4                           A vs D 

R1 Match Day 2               Super 8 Day 2
2 vs 1                           B vs A
4 vs 3                           D vs C 

R1 Match Day 3               Super 8 Day 3
2 vs 4                          B vs D
1 vs 3                          A vs C

Hertfordshire and Jammbo - Stuffing logic into the boot since the dawn of time.


*There was a vote by the Hertfordshire and Jammbo Ministry of Sport on which names the cricket team should have. The combined results of the national votes were tallied for the top 3. Hertfordians & their close ethnic relatives voted for 'Hertfordia Heathens', Jammbians & their own close ethnic relatives voted for 'Hertfordia Snowstorm' and 'Hertfordia Shrine Maidens' was the option that came 2nd in both sides.

Nieubasria is a nation of 15 million residents, located in the northwest heart of Polaris. Cricket is enjoyed by a relatively small number of people in Nieubasria, though they tend to be wealthier people which finance their local clubs through systems similar to Patronage. For instance, a high-ranking member of the royal family has always been patron of the (Royal) Clarendon Cricket Club.

Cricket Basria

Cricket Basria is a national sport organization whose mission is the organization of the national cricket team for Nieubasria. Individual cricket clubs retain much decision making power within the nation, and Cricket Basria is a fairly new National Sports Federation (NSF) which represents each local club or association solely for external relations. Cricket Basria was incepted in 1401 when the four prominent private clubs came to an agreement about international representation. 

A Federation is a plural organization between multiple Leagues or Clubs around the nation, most often of city or county-level organizations which coordinate for rules and national ranking and championships. Federations will most often employ a representative democratic structure in their highest levels. An example of such a structure is the Basric Astorian Football Confederence which grants each member association a vote in the Confederence Rules Council. A Federation is more common in popular, highly subscribed sports with developed amateur and varsity leagues.

May 8, 2021; 12:30 PM Auran Standard Time; New Larxia; Watchtower of Larxia's international airport

(radio message) "Larxia Tower, this is Uniform Alfa Delta One. Requesting permission to land. Over."

The controller nudged his colleague in his left, covering the mouthpiece of his headphones, "Why is the Adaikesian Presidential Aircraft coming to Larxia? I thought only their cricket players are coming?" His colleague just shrugged his shoulders.

"Uniform Alfa Delta One," the controller replied, returning to his headphones, "this is Larxia Tower. You are cleared to land on runway one-seven. Over."

"Roger that, see you in a few, over," came out from UAD1.


Upon landing on runway 17, and parking on a designated apron for special aircrafts, boarding ramps are connected to the cabin doors of the UAD One. While the two cabin doors opened at the same time, the rear cabin door saw people coming out first with the Steelbats cricket players of United Adaikes including the team staff heading off from the aircraft, along with some government staff. The first to come out of the front cabin door was the Chairman of the United Adaikes Cricket Board Xenocrates Mun, followed by United Adaikes Sports Commission Chief Pouria Barr.

After at least 20 minutes, members of the Cabinet went out. Foreign Affairs Secretary Anne Duncan was the first to head out, followed by Secretary of Trade Felice Colbert, Agriculture Secretary Kristen Bryan, Communications Secretary Sami Wirth, and Energy Secretary Hallam Chase. Retired General Carlo Charlton, now the Secretary of Military Affairs, came out with President Luke Salazar. Many would think United Adaikes officials came for an international summit.

A staff from the Department of Communications has told the press that they will not give any statements now, take the opportunity to rest after the 20-hour flight straight from Adaikes Central to New Larxia. The said staff has also said that the President will be attending the Opening Ceremony tomorrow evening.

May 8th, 1421; 8 PM International Atomic Time


The players and the staff of the Larxian National Cricket Team are in the Windlar Castle. King Maddy IV hosted a state dinner for the team before the beginning of the tournament. The infamous Oval Banquet was prepared for the state dinner. 

The team sits along either side of a long rectangular table, with the King and future Queen at both ends of the table. The King's siblings, Prince Dominic, Prince Sergio, Prince Gerard and Princess Georgina are present along side the King to welcome the team and wish them luck.

"I would just like to express my gratitude to Your Royal Highness for inviting the National Team to your home and host a state dinner for us. I promise, on behalf of the team, that we will do our best in the upcoming World Cup, and hopefully keep the trophy in Larxia. We promise to uphold the spirit of the game and to make sure to give performances that the fans can cheer for. Thank you again," said the Captain of the team, Virat Kohli in a respectful manner.

"Of course, I expect you to do your best, just keep in mind winning is good, but it is not the end of the world, if you lose. Just keep doing your best, and I promise to all of you, that the Larxians will keep supporting you, I definitely will. So go out there and play your natural game, and I do not say this lightly, but I have seen your natural game, and you're a force to be reckoned with. So keep doing what you do best and the results will come in your favour. All the best brothers," the King added encouragingly.

The rest of the evening progressed pretty formally, with a wide spread of drinks and foods, especially Andolian cheeses, that were in abundance. The Royal Family wished the team well in their World Cup Campaign. King Maddy IV promised the team that he will be in attendance for every Larxian match in the World Cup. He also ensured that team are accommodated in the best hotel in Nexilia for their Group Stage Matches.

The team took their leave and left for Nexilia to get settled over there while Kohli stayed back in New Larxia to attend the opening ceremony of the World Cup which will happen in the King's Circle Stadium.

May 9th, 1421; 7 PM International Atomic Time

The captains of the 15 teams are present in the King's Circle Stadium in New Larxia for the opening ceremony of the 1st T20 World Cup. Unfortunately the Hertfordian Captain was delayed and he is not present here. Around 127,000 fans have come to attend the opening ceremony of this coveted tournament. The tournament will start tomorrow with the same fervour as the opening ceremony. There is a stage made in the centre of the ground, with 16 flag holders at the back and the national flags rolled up at the top of the stadium. There is a small podium covered by a cloth with the trophy underneath. "All the captains will be introduced and they will come to the stage and they will put their respective flags in their assigned places. Please give a huge cheer for all the captains and give them a warm welcome," the announcer said on the stadium speakers. The crowd roared in excitement.

Each captain gets on the stage and plants their flag to thunderous applause and loud cheers. As each captain gets up on the stage, the flags rolled up at the top of the stadium are unfurled and they hang from the top of the stadium sideways, fluttering freely in the breeze. Each captain is personally interviewed by the announcer to deafening cheers from the crowd. "Where is the Hertfordian captain? Where is he? Please tell me he wasn't kidnapped or anything," the announcer shrieked frantically. "Hold on, mhmm, we are getting news that their coach broke down, mhmm mhmm, Ohhh, and, wait WHAT? And apparently they are driving across the continent on tractors. Well, nothing we can do about it, so let us continue on with the ceremony." 

"Now the world-renowned top Larxian artist, Selena Cabello, will perform for the crowd. She will also be debuting the Official Song of the T20 World Cup. Make some noise and welcome SELENA CABELLOoOoO". Cabello performs for the crowd and ensures that they are very excited and lifts the energy of the crowd to another level. Some other artists like the famous Larxian DJ, DJ MaXXus, also perform a few sets for the crowd. As the performance ends, DJ MaXXus exclaims at the top of his lungs, "Now please welcome His Highness, KING MADDY IV!!!!! Make some noise in welcoming him to the stage."

King Maddy IV gets up on the stage and motions the people to be quiet for some time. He says enthusiastically, "Citizens of Larxia, it brings me great pleasure that Larxia is hosting the tournament. To the captains I say, this game is a very beautiful game, so my sole advice will be to enjoy the games you play here, have some fun in Larxia, but most importantly uphold the honour of the game. To the fans, I say, enjoy watching these amazing athletes compete for the trophy and go to the stadiums to support your team. It might not seem like much, but it definitely makes a difference, ask the captains. With that, I declare the First T20 World Cup here in the Democratic Republic of Larxia, open! And with that, I present to you, the trophy that the winning team will take home with them." King Maddy IV uncovers the trophy to be given to the Champions of the T20 World Cup.


Champions' Trophy for the T20 World Cup





The fans get extremely energised, and you can hear it in the loud chants and cheers as the fireworks go off in the stadium. King Maddy IV stays up on the stage to meet the captains individually and wish them luck in their World Cup Campaign. The King takes a little more time with the Larxian captain and gives him his blessing for the campaign.

Royal News Network

May 9th, 1421, 7 AM IAT

The sun rises over the horizon as Quiyakaso adjusts his tie in a public bathroom of the New Larxia Airport. First sports broadcast of the new public news network of Zoran and his first day on the job. He hopes his luck has turned around and that nothing bad happens during his recording. He lets out a deep breath before making his way out of the bathroom and towards the terminal where the Zoranian team had arrived.

"Going live in 3...2...1..." The producer said as he motion for my broadcast to begin,

"Good morning people of Zoran! I am Quiyakaso Gohalitsve and welcome to the first live broadcast for the RNN's new sports news segment! We are live at the New Larxia Airport to witness the arrival of our cricket team! Many other teams have arrived the day before but our team's flight was delayed because of a storm over the airport last night that prevent them from taking off. Our team has high hopes for this world cup and despite the damage and disruption that the past year has caused, our team has been practicing in whatever way they could. They hope to bring home some glory to Zoran and its people to show that despite its recent troubles the country could still compete with the best in the international community! The Queen herself has wished the team the best of luck during this competition and that regardless of the outcome of this competition that the country will know they played the best they could." Behind him, the cricket team came walking out of the gate with smiles on their faces,
"And here they are now folks! The Zoranian Cricket team! They are excited to compete with other nations on the international stage to test their abilities with the best of the best. They have practiced in warzones, ruined fields, and the rainforests of Zoran and anywhere they could this past year in order to be in the best condition possible for this event. Instead of holding a parade, the team will be raising funds that they will donate to the various communities of Zoran that were the most affected by the war and for those that lost everything in the Desolation of Zoradia. We wish them luck in this task and look forward to seeing them play. Now let's go back to the news room to the current events section!" The broadcast ended and Quiyakaso let out a sigh of relief that something didn't go wrong for once. One of the interns came running to him with the coffee he requested earlier, he took it and thanked the intern before taking a drink and quickly spit it out onto the floor.

"This isn't what I ordered!" said Quiyakaso in a mildly annoyed tone,

"I know sir," said the intern, "the café said they discontinued your order a year ago." Quiyakaso fell to his knees and looked up at the ceiling as he yelled,

"Hello, everyone! From New Larxia, Larxia, we at Santo-Dominian Cable-Satellite Network Channel 3 bring you live coverage of the 1st T20 World Cup! Our coverage of the 1st T20 World Cup is brought to you by our generous sponsor, the video game "Assault: Shade Mythicals"!. We know you've heard about them in every sponsored video you've ever watched on the Internet, but we here at SDCSN Channel 3 are constantly in desperate need of funding and we don't care for your ears! I, the magnificent man with a name that's a mouthful that is Approctoflecticus Blubberman, will be your mildly irritating host for the entire duration for the 1st T20 World Cup."

"And we're here at New Larxia Airport, where our Santo-Dominian cricket team arrived about a few hours ago. Unfortunately, our flySD flight was delayed and we couldn't arrive here in New Larxia earlier to tape their arrival. Oh, and I've just been told that quite a few groups of Santo-Dominian cricket fans flew here to cheer for the team, but apparently mistook our Santo-Dominian players as Nieubasrian players and didn't cheer at all when our country's cricket players emerged from customs. It has been said that those fans were confused due to both the Santo-Dominian and Nieubasrian team uniforms using yellow as the primary colour, but we're still trying to get some additional information about that unfortunate incident."

"In the meantime, we've also managed to completely miss the opening ceremony! The bosses back in Friberne only sent one camera crew with us, and all of us were on the same delayed flight. Anyways, we've been told that our yellow-loving competitors from Nieubasria, as well as all the other teams, have attended the opening ceremony. I'm sure both Santo-Dominian and Nieubasrian fans won't be puzzled if the two teams face off against each other. That was sarcasm. Did I pull off sarcasm? I'm being scolded by my assistant who has mouthed that I shouldn't have clarified that I was being sarcastic. Alright, let's move on from that failure!"

"Wait a minute, that's the end of this broadcast? Okay! Haha! I'm totally not embarrassed at all. Santo-Dominian cricket fans, as well as the Santo-Dominian Cricket Association, are to sure to pay very close attention to this Cup, given that this is the first time Santos-Dominius has contested an international cricket competition! So, here's a reminder: this is the channel for live and direct coverage of the T20 World Cup! I'm Approctoflecticus Blubberman, and this was the Opening Day of the 1st T20 World Cup. Stay tuned to SCDSN Channel 3 for coverage of the Cup, and see you whenever stuff happens, even if that means that I have wake up at night and report from my hotel room!"

Official Communique from the office of the King

10th May, 1421; 8 AM IAT

The King has issued a statement, saying that the stadium in New Larxia will undergo some renovations which will be ready in time for the finals of the T20 World Cup taking place here in Larxia. The King once again expresses his joy and enthusiasm that Larxia is hosting the 1st World Cup. He also expressed his gratitude to the International Council for accepting Larxia's bid to host the tournament.

Coming to the point of the renovations, the King's Circle Stadium in New Larxia will see a new VIP box being added to it for the finals of the World Cup. This luxurious, state-of-the-art viewing box will be called, One World VIP Box. This box will be exclusively designed for the World leaders. The VIP Box will include every luxury you could think of and it is being made with the safety of the World Leaders in mind.

The King would also like to officially invite the Heads of the State of the 16 participating nations to join him in the One World Box to watch the finals in New Larxia. The King hopes that the World Leaders will accept his invitation and usher in a new era of friendliness and co-operation.

On a side note, the King has seen some of the misfortunes of the Zoranian news reporter, Quiyakaso, and would like to ask him whether he needed any kind of extra security to maybe reduce the chances of something like this happening in Larxia.

Howard Gresham, Private Secretary to Prince Marcarius, flipped through the papers inside the burgundy leather portfolio.
"The RAF Gryphon has been prepared and will take Your Serene Highness to New Larxia two days before the end of the tournament. His Majesty, King Maddy IV, has invited the leaders of the participating nations to join him in his box for the finals and we have accepted."

"Very good, Howard," replied the prince. "Please extend an invitation to King Maddy to join me for tea in my suite there the day before the finals."

"Yes, sir."

"Our team looked quite sharp in their whites and blue blazers at the Opening Ceremony. I do hope we put on a good show. As you know, cricket has been played in Saint Mark since its invention. There are scions of three Electors on the team, including my nephew Hunter. Let's toast for luck, Howard!" Prince Marcarius raised his tea cup and smiled, as Gresham bowed his head.

"Yes, sir."



Meanwhile in New Larxia, the team was quiet but relaxed on the luxury bus that was taking them from the Kings Circle Stadium to the airport where they would board their plane to La Marina. The Opening Ceremony had just ended.

Conrad Egleston, the team Captain, and Rudolph Waterman, the coach, were in conversation about strategy.

Walter Czarneki, the second oldest on the team and one of the best batsmen in the league, wondered if this first international tournament might be his last. 

The rest of the team contemplated the upcoming games and the strange country in which they would take place.

Tristan contemplated Lucy.

Hertfordshire and Jammbo Cricket - T20 World Cup Preview


Hello and welcome to the first ever report by HAJC on the T20 World Cup here in Larxia. Well, when we say here in Larxia, we have only just arrived in this country. Despite being one of the closest nations to Larxia itself - the western-most part of Hertfordshire & Jammbo is even in the same time zone as Larxia - we were the absolute last team to arrive and for once it wasn't due to getting lost on the way here. What happened was that our team coach actually broke just before we left. There was no other proper mode of transport we could use, so take a good guess what we arrived in Larxia with...


We aren't making this up. Hertfordshire and Jammbo is widely known as the countryside bumpkin nation, full of farms and wonderful scenery. At no point did we think it would have to go this far though. Those vehicles attached to the third one was on all three tractors in different forms.


Once we had finally arrived, we had a 'chat' with the coachbuilders behind our transport. Let's just say it was full of colourful language and a whole lot of furious shouting. Still, it could be worse, and then it was. We found out much to our dismay that the opening ceremony for the T20 World Cup had already finished some time ago. The misery was piled on by reports we found in the local news that United Adaikes made it earlier than us despite being a 20 hour flight away. Now that's just humiliating, our image as the 'dismal isolated farmers country' really is being confirmed to the rest of the world.

Mind you, just because we missed the ceremony, that by no means results in us not being there at all. We are not letting our presence go unreported. Instead of going down to the training ground, we headed straight for where the opening ceremony had taken place. Armed with the national flag of our nation St. Harlow's Cross, Faust Ḩarełeudeiem who is the captain of the Hertfordia Heathens burst through the stadium taking the janitors completely by surprise and just planted the Hertfordian flag where it is meant to be. This is somewhat normal to us lot.


This is Faust Ḩarełeudeiem, the captain of Hertfordshire and Jammbo Cricket's team (Hertfordia Heathens/Snowstorm/Shrine Maidens) as well as the former manager of the Hertfordshire and Jammbo Rugby Union's team. Don't question it. His first action in Larxia was to plant a flag far later than everyone else. The manager was going to do it but he was too busy shouting on the phone to the coachbuilders some more. This guy can be subtlely threatening without even trying.

Well, now that we have that out of the way we can introduce ourselves. We are those whose names shall never be uttered on this news service. Yeah, we aren't giving our names, mainly because we actually stole the job from the original presenters by sending them through a rather detailed and sinister gate. Even if it was a gate to Hell it wouldn't be surprising. If you really must know we are: Editor - Damian Hadjiev, Reporter - Frank Wezapad, Deputy Reporter - Yoshikage Ķile. It's not exactly much but we are more than capable of doing reporting. Apart from the fact we know next to nothing about cricket. But let's just gloss that to one side, we shall end the preview of the tournament with the news that we are in Group B with Glenpavia/Blue Bubble, Cambria & Teralyon as the third seed. Therefore we shall be playing Cambria in our first match. Goodbye for now, see you lot back home some other day.


An accurate representation of the training facilities that Hertfordshire and Jammbo have to use while here in Larxia. Honest.

It was 10 hours before the opening ceremony and the team had just landed.

Bernard grinned as he walked through the air bridge, looking refreshed. His phone was on the end of a selfie stick so he could capture the whole team. "Good morning Guys!" He spoke loud and clear. He was a good-looking guy - the perfect poster child for the team - their PR manager thought as she followed ahead. She already knew the news network was set up for the pre-opening ceremony interview with the team, just ready to start after the team gets settled in.

Behind her, the captain was chatting to a climbing audience, having already introduced the team. Evander Sibel had been the quietest during the flight, She wasn't used to flying just yet, but she managed it. Barely. But when she was in front of the camera, she had lit up, and for PR Expert Landel Akom, that was perfect. "We are so ready to just show what Glenpavia has to offer. Bluemen never give up without a good fight." Evander winks at the camera. She was a rural southern island girl, and her accent was catching the attention of a lot of adversing agencies.
 When they got to immigration, the team was finished filming, having answered some viewer's questions, and reported their excitement. By the time they got to the hotel, the team's page and accounts had excitingly increased in numbers, and they were ready to show off whatever rooms they got.

The rest of the day went swimmingly for the team and their managers. After the opening ceremony, the team all went into one room to celebrate their arrival. Their Coach, Walen Pother, had made sure no alcohol was consumed. That was going to be saved for later, saved for when they win.



"And now, over to our Sports Correspondent, Tennie, Over in New Larxia with our all-star cricket team"

The light went red, and Tennie softly smiled at the screen. "Hello from New Larxia, where I am here with the greatest of the greats!"

"Now now Tennie, we haven't won just yet" Bernard winks at her, joking. She laughs, joining in with the rest of the team, "Of course, but you are all come recommended by your own clubs back in Glenpavia, how does that feel?"

Kasp Aitry speaks up "It is an honour to be seen so highly by our own clubs. I know we had to go through a tough screening process to get on this team, and I am just thankful for not only our clubs, but all of our nation for believing in us. I know we are up against some tough competition, but to echo what Evander said earlier" she motions to the girl on the right of her "We will not give up until our last breath in this tournament"
The rest of the team nod in agreement, the captain ending the answer with a "We have quickly bonded as a team, and we can't wait to get out on the pitch"

From behind the camera, Landel Akom give them a thumbs up as Tennie continues "And we back at home are all rooting for you. My next question was about how excited you are, but you have already seemed to have answered that! Who do you think your toughest team will be?"
Grant Yonlon chooses to answer "Well, we have watched some teams play before, but others we don't have a clue about, so we cannot answer in terms of the whole tournament. There are a lot of highly skilled and confident players out there, and we are going to have to be on our A game to win the cup. But I think with confidence and teamwork, we will be able to fight through"

"I am sure we will be on the edge of our seats watching your matches guys! Now I noticed you did a video stream a few hours ago, Bernard, Do you have anything to say to your fans back home here on TV?" Tennie looks at him.

He nods "I just want to say, when we win this, we will do it for you guys, and the rest of Glenpavia-" Tennie speaks up over him "I am sorry Bernard, but I have just received news that Our current leader, Kassakira Petrovikan, will be joining you from the sidelines this tournament. I know a lot of bluemen have travelled to watch, but how exciting to have someone of such influence watching in person. How do you feel?"

Delkee was the first to speak, from surprise mostly. The leader of Blue Bubble was known for how eccentric she is, but also well she looks after the nation. For a nation who lives though the media, she rarely gives interviews or personally posts online. For Bluemen at home, playing "spot the leader" was a fun bet to play while watching if there was any wind of the woman being in the crowd. "We love that Kassakira has decided to support us in person" She looks at the camera "We hope to see you soon Miss 1st Leader, and we hope to make you proud!"
"And that's all we got time for today, Thank Blue Runners for joining us, and I hope you have a successful run this tournament. This is Tannie, back to the studio."
