Indoor cricket on a Thursday afternoon for old chaps like me, can't wait!!!! I just hope my knee holds up, however I was told that no one does any running.

Had a chat with the guy who is running the indoor cricket.  It is with a soft ball, so no pads, gloves or box.  Quite looking forward to it.

Just got home from my first 50+ indoor match. It was single wicket, seven overs each (one over per-outfield player).  the top score was 128 from the first batsman, I came third with 78, but was catch behind twice and stumped 3 times, which was minus 8 runs per dismissal. Must admit I batted like an idiot, just tried to slog everything, hence the stumpings. can't wait for next week

You are making this sound like walking football!

aged from 50 to 60, two are very good, some are ok, some are poor.  The bowling was very similar to playing div 8, 9, 10 OCA. lots of pies, but the soft ball holds up a bit so nothing really comes on to the bat.
open to anyone over 50 ish, I am sure they will take 48 or 49 year olds. 

Yes it is the cricket equivalent of walking football, and I was asked if I wanted to join them on Mondays to play Walking football. sounds easy doesn't it? but I ended up putting my back out batting, and I REALLY struggling now.
