Yeah well where to start.
(OK Bart, follow your McDonalds training for an SOC give them good news, stuff
they can improve on, and finish with some more good points and what to
Well for the first time in a very long time, we were forced to bat first. I
think it would be fair enough to say this is not our strongest point but hey
if the captain got there on time, maybe he could have called heads and won the
So into bat Chan and Paul into the fire first up. Not much to write about
but well take 27 runs no matter how we get them! And according to the rules of
Chan maths, with 3 outs, they actually got 42 runs
Callum and Steve I personally believe that this as a partnership has a lot of
promise. Id be interested to know how comfortable you guys are batting
together; but a good solid 36 runs. 2 outs so not a shabby effort.
Robskip and the Captain yeah well ok the captain got bowled by a chick. Let
it go now please. Few too many outs (4 in total) but a nice leading edge 7 from
Damo and Greg yeah well 8 outs total for 3 runs. Not good for the stats but
if you used Chan-Maths
Our total 92 extras 46
OK onto the fielding.
Well they tried something a bit different leading with their probable best
partnership so good advice from Damo to bring himself on
we had to keep doing
the same and their first partnership was probably what broke our back in the
end. That and not taking the chances we had.
Highlight of the fielding Chan. I think youve come on in leaps and bounds in
the last month or so with your fielding keep up the good work.
Steve excellent keeping again and you should have had that runout when the
Hindenburg was running down the pitch. He was out foot and bat in the air
hey, never mind.
Just like to say I was bitterly disappointed with my bowling I dont know how
many lucky toe of the bats they got, but it was pretty disappointing sorry
just had to put a plug in for myself
Damo nice strike back from the batting performance to not give up a run. Good
Steve again an excellent all round performance well done bat, ball and
So really, the thing we have to concentrate on is the fielding (inclusive of you
Chan in light of your improvements!), not giving away as many extras (we
conceded 42 ow!) and just keep enjoying it.
As Greg said after the match, it would be good to play them again I think they
are in the ranks of teams such as the Raiders and the Apes and we know we can
whip them when our tails get up.
Have a great Friday, and see you all next week.

Where to start? How about a first over costing 28 runs? Gutted.
Nonetheless, getting to see Barty get skittled by leaving a slooow ball on
the stumps was worth the price of admission.
As mein fuhrer...er, I mean Captain Maverick said - 42 extras is just insane.
We should be looking to limit ourselves to 16 or less per match - which means
every bowler gets to bowl just one in their two overs.
Yep, I feel quite comfortable batting with Steve - the strike rotates quite a
