TEENAGERS TERRORISE TERRIBLE FIELDS. PART 2

There’s not a lot you can say about this. We lost to them a few weeks back in the league and lost by an almost identical score this time. Therefore, let’s do this in 2 lists:

THE SAME AS LAST TIME

  1. They batted 1st and won the toss.
  2. They scored just over 120
  3. In reply, we scored less than 90.
  4. Only a slight wag from the tail prevented complete embarrassment.
  5. They were an impressive and friendly opposition.

DIFFERENT TO LAST TIME

  1. More than 2 of our batsmen got into double figures.
  2. One of their players annoyed his own team almost as much as ours.
  3. Er, different pitch.
  4. That’s about it.

Well done to Ty for bowling like he was still at Glastonbury one moment, ripping stumps out the other, and Alex who hit an accomplished 24.

More fun and games next week.

Amazing how the best funnies result from (cricketing) tragedy

Shame on the arrogant time-waster. There were 14 blokes out to enjoy a quick game of evening cricket, and he did his best to make it miserable for all concerned. To ignore his own Captain and Umpire was disgraceful behaviour and we were all robbed of a further 4 overs of potential play. Did you notice how, when he was thrown the ball at the end, he couldn't get through his overs quickly enough?
