Well, well, that was easily our most exciting game to date. Well.... it was when I got there! I sort of turned up in the wrong stadium and almost ended up playing baseball. It wasnt until I realised there was a lack of grog around the room that I did quickly run all the way (...nextdoor) to the correct stadium.
Indiania has both the Waugh brothers playing for them currently so along with Cwebs Nathan Hoy, Dark Hunter and Rob Timewell, we knew we were going to be in for a toughie. I took 2/67 off my 18, so apart from being a touch expensive, I was happy with my two. We dismissed them for a measily 285 and I got Mark
Could we continue on with our good start!?!
We were all out for just 220 with Pola getting a big 90. I managed just 16 off 35 with just the one four but a spectacular shot that would of broken my toe, but ever so thankfully, today I wore my shoes instead of sandals! I couldnt believe my luck. I was ready for a great bowling effort. Did it come!?!
Stevey boy hammered me and everyone else really on his way to 151 off 259. I bowled 3/115 including (eventually) Steve who was given LBW to a beautiful away swinger. However Indiania got 441 and we were in trouble. We got to the dressing rooms and decided to go for the total!!! And did we get it!?!
It was our best batting display to date, a huge score of 478/9. However we avoided defeat, something we were happy to drink about afterwards (actually we ended up drinking to a lot of things in the end, including Nikhils Mumma). Murali blocked out the final ball of the day and that as that. It wasnt a victory but I got another score in the 10`s and that was good enough for me.
I am expecting a much better effort in my batting and bowling (see my above post) so get ready for some dramatic stuff. NOOOOOO dont run away, it wont be Shakespeare!!... come... back.....
