    We got thoroughly owned today. 67 all out. Scared of batting first so of course I'm making us do it.

    We did make them fight for it though, 25 overs to chase it down.

    Cricket is stupid.

    After 10 overs today, we were 34/5, which sat nicely alongside 35/6, 25/4, 35/4 and 47/3 in our list of high quality starts.

    15 overs later, we were 152 all out - following 39 (20), 29 (17) and 34 (28) from 6, 7 and 10.

    This left Cothill with 38 overs to get 153, when a week ago they took 108 off us in 8 overs at a six-a-side. Yet, bizarrely, they made no real effort to chase it, and the boy who opened that day and set the tone with 18 off the first over didn't come in until number eight. Cothill were bowled out in the 35th over for 81.

    We're now W4 L1 - not too bad given that I am genuinely considering getting the boys to pick Wednesday's batting order out of a hat...

    Scariest moment of my life when that happened at U15 level once. My career batting average is about 2, so clearly I'm not the best batsman in the world, and we were playing a fairly competent team.

    I was the last person to pick, and there was 1 and 11 left in the hat. Thankfully I picked the latter and we cruised home to the win!

    Didn't get the hat out. Went unchanged.

    156/4 (20 overs). Number 6 made 51* off 27. Things are starting to click... and it's half term.

    Well the weather is ****, the pitches are ****, the general standard of cricket is **** and my batting is ****.

    2, 6, 8, 13, 0 is the season to date. Today's game was 63 all out and 65/8 with several batsmen dismissed by shooters and double bouncers. I managed to find deep forward square leg, the one fielder in about an acre of land on the leg side. Zero byes, however, and in a game as farcically low-scoring as this, that's got to have helped.

    The school team finished W7 L1 - unbeaten since I finally settled on a batting order (although the last game saw 90 plays 50, partly due to a difficult wicket and partly due to something you very rarely see at U11 level, a genuine fast-bowling shootout: Summer Fields' quick took 7/21 as we capitulated from 83/3, and ours responded with 5-2-3-2 to take out both openers and set the tone for our riposte).

    We've also had a torrentially wet district cricket week, lost both County games to the rain and hopefully our "Best of Districts" trial kicks off tomorrow. So long as it stays dry...

    My played to abandoned record this season is played 6, 8 abandoned FTR. Shocking.

    Seem to have become a makeshift opener for my teams 3rd XI. Had never batted above 8 for the team before last week but am now opening, as a result of both my improving batting and our teams terrible batting.

    Got a decent 48 today. Then got one that rolled.

    I'm captain of our 2nd XI. We didn't have a game today; one of three weekends over the season where we don't have a game, which is ****ing ridiculous tbh.

    I stopped by the ground to see how the 1s were getting on to find our opener had retired hurt, I was asked to take his place as a fielder. I managed to drop a catch and not do a lot else

    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!

    Hi Stapel,
    being a social league player too Id be interested to see how things work in NL. Does your saturday league has any web/fb/twitter? I follow cricket.nl but I gues its only covers the sunday league plus internationals.

    As for cricket in Prague. The t20 league is over and we won, our 1st XI to be exact. Now the 40-overs league is on but one of the teams pulled out (they cant get enough people for matches) so its only 4 teams left. Our "national" and "development" teams played Hungary earlier this month and the tour was succesful. Otherwise it sucks for social players because a few matches got cancelled, vacation time is starting, people seem to be too busy to play/practice, kinda cricketless period atm

    Managed something incredible yesterday. A 25 ball blob. Then got triggered LBW on one I inside edged.

    Blaming it all on the fact I was at a Ball the evening before with a free bar and busted my head open so was a combination of sleep deprived/hungover/concussed. I'd play it up more if it wasn't for the fact that I nailed the non-strikers stumps twice and the bloke originally at cover refused to field there when I was batting as I stung his hands enough times. On a different day I'd have had 30.

    Seriously, this is all your fault. Worst summer ever.

    In theory I'm playing 1st XI on Saturday, away at second-bottom Combe II as we try to chase down a second consecutive promotion, but it doesn't look encouraging...

    It did the opposite of what it was asked! How is that my fault?

    It did exactly what you asked, then realised it enjoyed it so much it thought it would do some more. And some more.

    NEVER wish for rain.
