Your Cricket / Re: Your 2018 Season
« Last post by NT50 on Today at 09:41:51 PM »
Got asked (forced) to keep today (despite my protests) as the only competent bloke with the gloves (this was only the third time i've done it, god knows how my new Sunday team coped before i started!)

We shipped 206 in 45 overs, didn't have any chances behind the stumps, and conceded 9 byes which was a bit annoying given i only let 1 past last week. Most of which were towards the back end of the innings when i refused to dive for anything that was so wide it warranted it. Was about 30 degrees and i honestly couldn't have dived if i'd wanted to, my legs were jelly towards the end. Their opener batted without a helmet and tried to sweep our medium pacer, resulting in a cut to the eyebrow, still shuddering thinking about what could have happened had it been our quicker bowler.

We chased the 207 down inside 30 overs for 3 wickets, after our openers put on 160. Was down to bat 6 so had my pads on but didn't get in.

Becoming a bit disillusioned with cricket and have been for the past month or so to be completely honest, despite both my teams being on a winning run. Haven't really been given a go with the bat, and whenever i do, i get stitched up by the pitch ala yesterday, or our top order bat so well i'm not needed, only to be shunted down the order the next week. Shouldn't really be complaining given our winning runs, but ultimately i don't play cricket to watch other people bat or bowl, if it continues another few weeks i'll probably give up for the season i imagine.

i sense some sarcasm.... :o

Do I sense sarcasm in your sensing of my sarcasm?

My new understanding is they are Keeley made, the owner @Blank Bats is great to deal with, and the one I have is making even me look good!!!

Why do you have to biff to get a good score? How does a good bowling attack get smashed around the park routinely? A balanced team will have different types of batsmen and bowlers. Together with good captaincy and fielding they should beat a team of biffers only interested in scoring lots of runs with no interstate in taking wickets (for some unknown reason).

We tied our game at the weekend against a team, like ours with a good range of different batting styles. It was a great game as we both went for the win. The only time bonus points were mentioned was when they lost a few wickets and thought they’d fall short. Thankfully they carried on playing PROPER CRICKET SHOTS and scored 11 in the last over. They earned far more points by tying. If they had blocked out for bonus points I wouldn’t be able to describe it as anything other than cowardice.

Bats / Re: Harrow B3

Anyway lads, i'm still no closer to narrowing down which shape harrow to go for from B3!

Something with a lower middle for front foot play would be a good start, and something that wasn't too heavy as well. As the B3 website only has Light, Medium and Heavy i'm not really sure what weights these translate to
