tails never fails, got a duck, we got bowled out for 108 in 30 overs. they chased it down for the loss of 6, got 2 wickets not enough. may lose top spot. it bloody rained at drinks which didn't help our cause
We are 148-2 at stumps. I am number 5 so may get a bat next week. At this point just happy to see the lads pile on the runs.
The game may be heading towards a draw as they made 223 in their first dig. Some of our guys want to declare over night and try to roll them in their second dig.
I personally think the best chance of winning is to bat quickly to 270 (which will be a high score for us) and then try to roll them and give our selves a small total to chase in the 4th inning.
you don't get 1st innings points?
pull the pin as soon as you pass their score. not before and don't bat on after.
The length of time you bat on after reaching a total is directly related to how much you hate the opposition.

Only other factor is how close someone is to a milestone.
yea my post was purely in terms of forcing a result. if they're a bunch of ****s they can field til 6.
Finished a coaching session tonight feeling tremendously good about cricket. It was with a group of players we've been working with for some time (U11 now) and was one where we picked out some little, subtle technical intricacies with several of them that really made a difference to how they were hitting the ball. Two things were great - the progress they made and their attitudes toward it all. Joy to coach it.
Next week we are doing a wicketkeeping master class with the County/District U13 and below. I have a bunch of drills and ideas in my mind, but has anyone got any favourites?

Rolled for 29 by the team with the ridiculous quick I've spoken about before. They make 150 in 20-odd overs and declare.
I then manage to get us off for light in the third over, pissing off the opposition captain (and ridiculous quick), who were obviously hoping to roll us outright in a day.
Opening the batting against a fresher ridiculous quick will be ITSTL. Some guys in our team thought he may max out at 135. I reckon he's operating more around the 125 mark.
There is a 55 over limit on the 1st inning. The decision is to bat them out aggressively get a small lead and try to roll them.
Just played my first game of cricket in 2 years!, bowling first change i got a decent amount of outswing with pace, but struggled with front-foot no balls in an effort to pitch the ball up, which really put me off. I still ended up building decent pressure, but not enough to pick up any wickets
Hopefully once i fix my release i can start picking up some wickets
