I can't really imagine many people will be interested in the Dutch saturday league (which is the social cricket eague, as opposed to the sunday league, which has nasty features like promotion and relegation). I guess our competition planning is more about the quality of te tea and the bbq!
Apart from that, we compete in a monday evening 8-a-side T20 cup: La Toque d'Or. As we managed to bowl out our opposition for not too many (93), my captain decided to let me open the batting......, also because I had only faced 3 deliveries so far this season.
My topscore, until that day, was 24. I still don't know how it was possible, but I saw batsmen around me fall like autumn leaves, while I appeared to be anchorman..... Our opponents figured I was the one to get out! When they finally got me, I had assembled 28 runs. And my team only needed a dozen runs to win (which we did).
It was a good feeling!
