    Starting to get back into it for the upcoming season with juniors grading, so had a bowl at some of the higher-level U/16s players we've got, focussing on finding weaknesses and keeping them quiet in the nets and seeing how they dealt with it. It was coming out reasonably well, which was nice.

    Had a hit as well, without any protective gear. One of the relatively quick U/16s bowling at about 3/4 pace, one of the quicker first year mens bowling some erratic off spin, and my dad trying to find a groove with his Philander-style bowling. Incidentally the best bowler on show was the U/10s kid bowling massive indippers at me. If he's still doing that in 5 years, he'll be damn near unplayable.

    I wasn't quite middling it, but my footwork was promising and I slapped a couple of cover drives -- always a good sign ahead of pre-season training. Cut shot still my weakness though.
    My sworn enemy:

    finally found some form and scored 26 yesterday for the seconds(yes it really has been that bad this season that i am classing 26 as finding some form!)In all seriousness though, it was nice to finally find the middle of the bat again and hit four crunching cover drives , two of which hit the fielder and still went for four

    Had to bowl also(after a year and a half) as we lost two bowlers to the firsts and came back with 1/29 off seven which i am pleased with as
    A)i am an old duffer and b) it was 27c yesterday and bowling seven on the trot almost killed me..typical as i am now off on holiday and missing four matches as a result: yeah but grr...

    The last Saturday of July traditionally has no regular competition in The Hague, but a proper 6-overs-8-a-side tournament:

    Madness. Exhilarating. Magical. Netherlands have crossed the line in an unbelievable 13.5 overs.
    It's like watching a Gayle from each end. And when one Gayle gets out.. Another Gayle comes in...

    Turned the arm over last night in the indoor nets, fair to say I'll not be playing as a bowler this season after the pain that caused.

    We won!
    But the rally great news: two of my team mates have broken the club record partnership. We didn't bowl that well afterwards, particularily me, but we had enough runs on the board for a safe win.

    Have had a tormented season, was 3rd xi skipper at my club but had to resign due to problems i found within the club and lack of support. I worked on my batting during the winter and regardless of how good i have looked in nets i have been unable to translate that into matches.

    It will come., just need more time..
