I made my Dev League debut today!
I was against the Veterans XI in the OD Semi Finals.
Here are the 2 teams:
Paid the Umpire
Gibbs N Smith
I was due out to bat at 6. My major incident of the first incident was when Imran Khan Jr. came in to bowl and Aravinda De Silva's cover drive came straight to me at Square Cover. I came in to bat at 150/4 chasing 245. I made a skilfull 35 off 64 balls however I was bowled by DeSilva but we only made 223/7 I came off the field dissapointed but shook hands with Mark Waugh and Man of the Match Aravinda DeSilva and exchanged plesantries. In the dressing room I talked to Nibblet who seems slightly eccentric and is a Kiwi and the 'keeper Samuel Vimes who is Norwiegian.
I'm back with the B team this season
