    Had acupuncture on my groin injury yesterday. terrific fun putting needles into my upper leg.

    only when you're injured do you realise how much you enjoy playing cricket. have fun those playing today.

    Played against my team in a t20 league match. I wasnt selected and just hung around. Luckily the opposition didnt have 11 players so I jumped in.
    Dropped a sitter, a really high ball I could hardly see against the sun - must admit I was really scared when I put my hands almost blindly in front of my face. Bowled two expensive overs and managed to hit my (club) teammate painfully in the elbow by slow full toss.
    Then had to leave before the 2nd innings to catch the bus - the ground is in remote area where bus goes only twice an hour

    Waiting with interest for Weeman's dad's take on Saturday's game. I've heard the report from our side (having been away camping in the Wye Valley - fantastic weekend) but the other side of the coin is always interesting reading!

    The only thing that's stopped me from topping myself is the thought of getting home on Friday and cricket on Saturday

    Will try and find out. Can't promise anything though.

    Assuming this is the right game:

    Bowled 50 overs in an Under 11 game. Oppo 37 - 6 after 15 overs crawl to 92 - 8 at tea in 43 overs.....then bat on for another 7 overs to get to 125 - 8.

    My team left 23 overs were 28 - 1 after 7 overs then 49 - 7 after 13.

    Fantastic display of indisciplined batting with the best batter run out by the most idiotic! All out in 19.5 for 65.

    Yeah that's the one. Bizarre, bizarre scorecard and I bet the only time this century that an U11 side in England has batted for more than 50 overs. We added an unbroken 69 run stand for the ninth wicket. It appears there was a major screw-up in terms of overs allowed - WH should have had 31... although it didn't matter in the end.

    Needless to say I haven't got my batting order quite right yet...

    Another hard-fought win today for my U11s, chasing down 107, but not before a few scares having got ourselves 37/4. A very assured 49 (I never tell kids scores... I kind of wish I had done) from one of our County players was enough to marshall us home. The big challenge right now is to go from the stage where we look like we should get runs to actually getting runs - we have lots of batsmen (as I've been saying for ages) who look like they could be excellent... but in games their mental process is all wrong so they don't score. Any tips?

    In other news, our second XI won by 172 runs today having bowled out the opposition for eight...

    Doesn't make sense - they had a bat - and then decided they wouldn't bowl to the opposition because the bus only came every 30 minutes.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Bad wording from me possibly.
    I had to leave after the 1st innings, makes sense now?

    My 10-year old's side has managed to complete a couple of games. Truly terrible matches though. We aren't very good, but the opponents were both horribly weak. Our batsmen were bored silly by bowling that was either two wide or too busy rolling along the ground to be hit. Out fielders were equally bored by 20 overs of waiting for a batsman to actually hit the thing. Apart from our keeper, who missed most things that came his way anyway. And our longstop, who had to field about three balls an over.

    Things will get tougher this week though.
