    Scores: 1st Innings: Dave (me): 17
    James (sisbf): 37

    so at the end of the 1st innings i NEEDED to make a big total for them to chase.

    James: 39
    Chelsea 26

    Top work. Nice to finally hear of a Backyard game that doesn`t end with the person winning by miles and taking hat-tricks to back up their 700* in four minutes.

    haha thanks mate!

    gotta love those 'games' although i did dominate in my early backyard cricket days but my sister is alot older now and is a BLOODY fast bowler!

    shes only 11 and she bowls very fast for her age!

    cheers for the reply!

    im not sure of the EXACT speed but id say shes very fast and remember its a backyard pitch which is about 13-16 metres in length it isnt a full size.

    Not being a smart arse.

    The quickest Under 11s I've seen in the UK push the 100k mark; girls about 10k below that... neither of which can really ever be classed as quick (unless of course you're 12..)

    haha sorry man, naa she isnt THAT fast but shes very quick for her age on a level of backayrd cricket, and somebody whos never played a game of competitive cricket.

    She only started bowling about 4 months ago, and she loves it, but loves batting more haha.

    we normally play a modified game wher she gets 3 wickets in hand because of her age, and i get one.

    it goes very well and evens up nicely!
