    here's a graph of my last 80 innings.

    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

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

    i'm pretty sure all senior cricket played on turf is with four piece, the duke's for this would be the same.

    2 pieces are important on hard wickets, they hold together better and don't lose as much shape i think.

    Sounds like a bloke at our club; 400 wickets bowling outswingers at just a touch above medium pace, sub-10 average in high park cricket grades every year.

    Pretty sure Marcuss plays for Rottingdeane. However I don't think you're playing their junior XI so I doubt you'll play against him.

    Why don't you play a higher standard. Taking wickets at 8 is stupid.

    Developed the really annoying habit of scoring runs for everyone besides my home league side.

    Played a higher standard in wales for club and uni = runs. Played Sunday cricket against a first xi bowling attack = runs. Rock up for my home 3rds and blob up. Guh.
    There is progress though. 2 years ago I used to score 10-20, last year was 20-30 this year its 25-40 I score most weeks. Just need to learn to grind to 50 rather than just opening up once I get to 20

    and anyway that's not uncommon in park cricket, averaging low teens consistently with the ball, nobody is hitting double tons down here.
