    Bashed by a novice

    Played a small game of cricket yesterday with some friends including Neil. Lad whose never held a cricket bat before bashed Neil for 12 off 4 balls. Haven't laughed that much for ages. He finished with figures of 6-0-70ish-0. and then batted and got 26/8 off 6 overs. :saint: That's real talent

    6-0-70-1

    Paine st Mitchell b Pickup :P

    And Lee hit me for 11 off 6 balls, not 12 off 4 :P

    Still, it was pure tripe.

    Excuse? It was too cold, and I couldn't grip the ball properly.

    It's not just leg spinners who have a problem gripping the ball in cold or wet weather...

    Yeh many a bowler must have felt like that against me, during my sterling marathon 83 off 40 overs.. or 6 in one ball, or 42 in 30 balls, remeber form is temporary, class is permanent, and that is class...

    I didn't guess he was a leg-spinner, because of the ball gripping problem.....heck that is an even bigger problem here in Oman where humidity plays a part and so does your sweat because of the emmense heat..... I guessed he was a leg-spinner because novice players usually are succesful in doing that against leg-spinners.....not offspinners or fast bowlers.......you should know that.

    Keep going. Soon the economy will be down to Ajit level.

    I think "all you can eat buffet" would be a better way of saying it though I only hit 8 off Neily on Tuesday. Wides only being 2 runs and no extra balls helped him a lot today

    And I would've had you stumped with a quality keeper, too :P

    RE: Wides - can only hit what's in front of you :P

    *Tries to forget the wide he chased 4 feet outside the matting and hit straight to cover point :P*
