We had a crunch game to determine who went and finished top of the table. Just as the game started a cross breeze started - so our bowlers were at completely the wrong ends. One is an inswinger and one is an outswinger. I told the captain to change them around but I didn't insist so it didn't happen. We couldn't get out their opening bat and he scored a ton. He is susceptible to outswingers but due to the breeze we couldn't bowl any to him.
They made 245 off 45 overs and that was about 50 too much for our batting line up's potential (bowling is our strength).
Still the fellow who scored a century is a great guy and we had a couple of brews with him after the game. He is leading the comp in runs.
I got out cheaply to a bowler who got late movement with the two piece ball.
