    That's cool! At least it's on the up! How long have you been tracking this for?

    I've just started tracking my progresses with batting this season, and next will get into detail with bowling too, now quite sure how that'd work on a chart though..

    ------------------

    I personally had a half decent weekend.. Bowled first on a really short boundary to see how the other team played their game and they managed to hit 314.. Unfortunately, we only managed to get 311.. I hit 49, and felt like I could win the game for the team then waited for a slower ball bouncer and didn't commit to the shot as much as I should have, and got caught on the boundary! Then the only other player who we had some faith in the win it was clean bowled in the penultimate over.
    The English South African.

    Batting is simple (3W's):
    Watch it
    Wait for it
    WHACK IT!

    Tracking it from the very first innings I ever had, aged 12. I didn't bat very regularly as a child - and when I did get the chance, I got out.

    I joined CW in March 2003; my stats at that stage were 26 runs @ 2.36 (after 16 innings). Proof positive that practice leads to improvement.

    Today I opened for the 1st XI as the guy who we had expected to open had strained his hamstring in the field, whilst the opposition were busy smashing us around the ground. They made 282/7 in their 45 overs, and I took the skin off both elbows throwing myself around the boundary in the process. In reply, we knew there was a lot of heavy rain coming, so wanted to prevent them from taking too many wickets (and getting bonus points) before the game was abandoned. We batted out 21 overs, and were 66/0 when the heavens opened, meaning - for all their dominance - in terms of match points, it was only 10-8.

    I was dropped at second slip - playing a shot that suspiciously resembled catching practice - but otherwise was pretty pleased to get some runs (24*) in the first team for the first time. I need to keep working on my back foot play outside off stump: it's either an Ian Bell late cut/run to third man, or a miss if I try a "real" cut shot. Definitely needs to be the target for the winter.

    Training with a uni squad atm, gonna turn out illegally for them in a practice game next weekend, hope I don't **** up. It's amazing how much I've regressed since from when I was 15. I started playing when I was 12 and by 15 I was in the national set up for the respective age groups. Since then it's been a downhill slide where so many ****s I used to dominate in my age group are now much better than me while I never improved much, if at all. Serving NS hasn't helped of course. At least the army and police force have teams, civil defence doesn't have ****, so I basically haven't played for 2 years.

    yeah, winter down here in Aus, I'm trying to reinvent myself as an off-spinner after years as a failed batsman (only 17 so I have some time), have some good variations but the accuracy isn't there yet.

    In the spirit of Neil, I've dug out all the old scores I could find and plotted them on a graph. Red bar represents the time at which I switched clubs.



    There are 4 or 5 seasons worth of terrible scores not included in that graph (no access to scorebooks, no online record going back that far), so the statistics at my new club are the only ones that have any relevance.

    555 @ 13.41 since the switch, I think (graph might have one rogue innings of 6 in there; getting two different results on innings-by-innings and season analysis atm).

    Career figures of 11/256 (~4.20rpo) and 21 dismissals to supplement my mediocre batting.

    Interesting that you've scored exactly 50 three times. Did you retire or something?

    First time was my first-ever men's game as a full-time player; we were pushing for an outright and the team decided to push back the declaration until I got to the 50.

    Second time my partner ran me out, which was quite annoying because the team we were up against was filled with guys who I coached for school cricket during the week. They had no chance of getting me out any other way.

    Third time we were 9 down and my partner was clueless; he stuck around long enough for me to get to 50 and then I decided to try and go after it - any more runs were bonus. Trying to slap a yorker over mid on didn't work too well.

    Our club has won the t20 title beating our German rival. A tight match with 3 ducks on our side. I didnt play in the final obviously but its I must say its good to have at least one trophy of the planned three

    Next week tour to Sussex !!!

    yeah club bowling averages can get quite low - if you tell me that is with a four piece I will be impressed however.

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