Tight finish! Obviously didnt watch it all, caught the last 3 overs! Aussies looked nervous towards the end!
Not been up this early on a sunday! Must mean net day!

I have always tried to set it up that all of my bats (nets/wet weather/game) feel the same, similar anyhow,
I will use a light bat for drill work, eg one hand drills or a training bat but will only use that off/pre season as I find it plays on my timing.
Perhaps it's just me being fussy

First indoor games for uni today!

After losing 75% of our players to graduation last year, we weren't really expecting to win any of our 4 games, especially not when we realised we were playing all the games back to back after a team didn't show up.

I only played the last 2 games. We gave them too many in the first game before being beaten by the best uni of the tournament who were incredible. 3rd game got battered again, where their keeper took a head high catch standing up to a rapid bowler, one of the best pieces of cricket i've ever seen. Last game won an absolute thriller that went down to the last ball, where i 'pulled' the last ball for 3 (was a slap of my gloves as i was late on it) to win it.

Overall a better set of results than expected, as being a small uni with a small influx of players after losing 5 out of our best 6 indoor players, 4 heavy losses was on the cards.

Some lads were disappointed not to be selected, but there's only so many times you can tell someone that you don't need to whack the ball as hard as you can to score runs. all of my runs came from pushing and prodding behind square, or from defending it into the side wall (and i'm a number 7/8 in a div 5 team, but i have a brain!)

We also came up with a novel way to wicket-keep to spin. With our keeper taking his gloves off and standing back, he could cover the off-side back wall, giving us an extra fielder to stop it infront of square.
