A notice "New fixtures calendar for 2013 coming soon" appeared on our club's website. Cant wait for the new season to start...two months still
45 over one dayer today. Made 35 not out with the bat, and me and another guy put on 80 for the 4th wicket (he was 40 not out). We had a bit of troppo fun at the end. The team made 260 from our 45 overs. I'm batting ok at the moment, seeing it easily, and I've stopped falling over my stumps and going out LBW.
Bowled my allocation of 9 overs for only 14 runs. No wickets. They batted their overs out, but in the end they could only get to 150ish.
Had that situation where they had a young dude batting (17 or 18) and he could not score. So we tried not to get him out. We probably bowled 5 maidens to him.
1 not out off 3 balls.
I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowdOverrated XI Warner, Burns, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaulone day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
Thoroughly looking forward to day two!

Had a good win weekend just gone; Previous weekend we were all out for 93 chasing 130, main destroyer was Trent Boult playing one game of club cricket between the South African and English series. 8/37ish killed us really.
T20's coming up this weekend with rep duty for the Bay.
You've probably played against another member on here - Howsie - I think he plays for Waikato Valley or something. I'm sure he'll elaborate.

Vimes tells it how it is:
18 off 45 balls. First time someone has counted my balls. SR of 40 sounds about right for me in a two day match.
We were 153 all out
They are 160-8 at stumps.
I hope they declare over night so we can set them a target.
They have been batting at 5 an over so it will be a run rate of 6 per over I would think for the target.
****ing went from clear first to fifth and out of the finals with a loss bye and loss
didnt score enough runs again, I got a golden skied to cover off the last over. took a couple but couldn't win it. we almost got em, they passed us 8 down. last 2 games are must win and hope something goes our way. such a tight ladder. playing angry music pissed as ****

i have a hard enough time counting my overs
Yeah, utterly unable to count to six when umpiring without digital / geological assistance, so counting balls when batting is never going to happen, even with my typically fun-size innings lengths. Can't count my runs, either...
Had some fun today with the bowling machine set on 54mph, firing it down the legside off 14 yards, and challenging our U11 keeper to stand up to it: all about good sidesteps and lateral movement, as well as presenting that catching area. Thoroughly enjoying working with the keepers at the minute; hoping they have a massive impact on the matches in the summer.
I always try to count my runs when I bat. Get to about 7 or 8 and realise I've lost count.
