    I started this season in the fourths, struggling to make runs, and now with the last game before finals I'm playing in the seconds, and I topscored last week and second topscored the week before, so I'm pretty happy with how my batting has progressed this year, particularly mid-season when I made the switch from hard wicket to turf pitches.

    Yeah, started about four weeks ago though I'm generally missing them because I have other commitments at the moment. Been to one, felt a bit rusty, was not picking up length well at all, but overall not too bad for a first hitout. Shoulder took about five days to recover from bowling all of about two overs too.

    Scored 83 today. There were 3 overs to go at the end and I had to get sloggy to bring up the ton and got clean bowled. Will bring up that ton one day. I was lucky to get to 83 as I got dropped 3 times 2 of them were quite easy.

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

    We were 4/13 at one point this morning, could see a grand final birth slipping away, but the captain made 80 and we ended up putting 165 on the board, can definitely defend that with our bowling and their batting

    Got a golden duck.

    I should have had throw downs as I just didn't move my feet well to the first ball. Diving one handed catch by slip mind you.

    Still we are into the one day final against Heef's club.

    a) I don't think he will play unless they are short
    b) he would probably get me out as he used to play a higher grade of cricket. Mind you he will be rusty so who knows.

    BTW Heef's club very generously offered to provide their own home umpires to officiate the whole the game. We sensibly said no and we are getting in some professional umpires for the game.
