    We lost yesterday but it was the first time the 2nd XI played in the 40-over league.
    Bowling first on awfully cold and windy day we let the oppo reach 262 (one hundred included) for 8. Then we were 174 all out in 37 overs. I batted at no.11 facing five or so ball and was not out.

    Our club has got 6 new guys this season which means even the 2nd XI is getting crowded. Good for the club but not so good for me because literally anybody plays better than me. At this rate Im going to have to start a 3rd (non-suncontinental) XI to get games regularly

    Won yesterday. We 'smashed' 162 in our 40 overs. Bowled oppo out for 74. Pleased with my figures of 8-1-6-4 on a very slow pitch.

    You went for 6 runs off 8 overs with only one maiden?

    Yes. Just hit for singles. My best ever analysis for runs conceded off the full allotment of 8 overs allowed. Two bowled, two caught & bowled.

    But even if you went for one single an over there would still have been two overs without a run, surely?

    I'll have to double check the scorebook. The website has only one maiden.

    8-1-6-4 is impossible.

    Probably your right - I was just stretching my mind to penalty deductions for running on the pitch but I don't think those get deducted from the bowling figures.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one 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.

    The scorers have stuffed up in my opinion. Probably more like 4 for 8 or 4 for 9.

    Second match of the season this weekend - hopefully I'll score some runs this time. Has anyone here heard of a "golden goose"?

    no. There was a debate in my team as to whether I scored a royal pair last season. I scored two goldens in a two day game - I said it wasn't as I wasn't opening.

    The golden goose was taken from wiki with no references so not sure how true it is. Opened, we batted first, first ball of the season. I couldn't help but laugh as it happened - hugely looking forward to knocking a few about and I did something monumentally silly.
