17, 21, 28, 44, 49, 50

A typical day for Nightwatchgirl:

On a whim, Nightwatchgirl bought a lottery ticket. She watched the draw and looked at her numbers.

All of a sudden it dawned on her. She had won. And not just £10. She had won the jackpot. £20,000,000.

After the shock and allowing her time for the news to sink in, an idea came in to her head. What could be the best way to spend her money? What would make Nightwatchgirl extremely happy? And then it hit her.

She was going to organise the Nightwatchgirl Super Series in Bognor Regis. After sending a very polite letter to the ECB suggesting this very thing, Giles Clarke wrote back.

The Series is on. England v NWG Super Stars. And it starts next week.

NWG knew happiness could be bought. It just took her a very long time to realise.

I don't think the lottery goes up to 50. That probably explains the size of your winnings. No one else would have guessed a number that hadn't come out before. Well done. Drinks on you. And can we have James Foster as the wicketkeeper?

Are the NWG Superstars going to be a Blogger's XI?

Who is in your team? I pour a good cocktail and know a glove from a box. Can I be twelfth man?

Drinks are on Nightwatchgirl! And yes, James Foster would definitely be in NWG Super Stars.

Damith, NWG did win. She is rich!

Nestaquin, you are formally invited to be twelfth man. NWG would be honoured to have you in her team, just for the promise of cocktails alone.

She is still in negotiations for the final line-up.

NWG will keep you posted.

It's all mine.
