    That's a hell of a standard! Well done!

    I'd also like to retrospectively congratulate you for this.

    Neil, do you ever come across Winchester House School on your school travels?

    Frequently. Why?

    You coach the U11's right?

    Is your opposite number there a fairly short fellow with dark hair? Likes to crouch down when he umpires at square leg?

    Certainly matches the first criterion, but when I'm umpiring at the bowler's end, I don't pay attention to square leg!

    Haha... small, small world we live in. Sadly I'll miss the Winchester House clash this year as that clashes with the aforementioned camping weekend. I can give you a blow-by-blow account of last year's game, if you want, though? Lots of rain, some woeful running from my lot and then a 7-fer from our leggie as the Brackley boys gave a sneak preview of the way England would negotiate spinners all winter...

    We're a bit lighter on batting this year (no one's yet made anything much beyond 30, hence why I'm gutted that the Bilton Grange game isn't going to happen) but our attack is as good as I've ever had at U11, including one of the fastest bowlers in the country...

    From the brief match reports I hear, this seems to be a common theme in U11 cricket.

    Won't argue with that - this was a particularly stunning example, however. We made 191/5 in 30 overs, and four of the wickets that fell were run-outs.

    My verdict in the season review included "X [was dismissed] courtesy of another run out in which a barge pole wouldn’t have been long enough to make his ground." To be fair it also concludes with "both [partners in 129-run fourth-wicket stand] were run out in the scramble for landmarks".

    We ended with "Although a number of catches – some difficult, some simple – went to ground, the leg spinner accounted for the rest of the hosts’ batting order, finishing with outstanding figures of 7/35 that included a thoroughly amusing hit-wicket. It was an afternoon that reinforced the importance of tackling spinners with footwork, rather than standing there and waiting for them to bowl you out."

    We fondly recalled the hit-wicket incident in Cape Town the other week whilst watching it rain - the batsman was hopping around the crease, up and down like the Duracell Bunny and ended up basically jumping so far back in his crease that he just landed on the stumps...
