Surely this makes all the hard work this season worth it huh? ;-)

Well, we were straight into the final � and up against Cory�s for whom we had
a record of 1-2 (won one, lost two).
And into field first we did.
Well, team � not too many chances, but we probably took 70% of them. Again we
tried something different (bowling Damon twice in the last partnership).
OMG�s first game back from a long layoff � but a good couple of wickets, and was
getting some good tweak at times once he got into the rhythm.
Chan�s first over � well the umpire summed it up with �one wide to come� � only
for him to get a wicket!
I think we can look at the stats and know this � no bowled. Which means they
were keeping everything out or the ones that were on the wickets they got away.
But we got a fair few runouts, and a couple of catches which again says volumes
for their batting � not our fielding or bowling.
The batting � well. We needed around 1 a ball from the start � possible, but a
couple of wickets and we would be in trouble.
I think it speaks volumes about their bowling that nearly half our score was
contributed in extras � a scary stat!!!
Damo and Greg � a great valiant rear guard action toward the end � but just not
Well guys � I don�t know whether to be upset or relieved about the last game of
the Season. It has been tough at times, and there hasn�t been too much
consistency in the team selection. But we are getting a good number of possible
ring-ins which has always got to be good.
And most importantly, we got consistent on the win/loss ratio toward the end of
the season � we were winning more than we were losing!
So chins up, and on to bigger and better trophies next season!!!
