Fantasy League: Forrester all smiles

Fantasy League manager Brian Forrester was full of smiles this week. No use trying to talk to him about cars, trees or Duckworth Lewis. He only had one thought on his mind: "I must be top. I am, aren't I?" was all he wanted to say.

That's because 4 of the top 5 scoring players from last weekend (Kevin & Murray Whitaker, Alex Rajendran and Omar Ahmad) are in Brian's side. His spectacular haul of 435 points has put him in first place with just 5 weeks to go.
