Just Brilliant
« on: June 28, 2012, 09:21:32 PM »

Ever lost faith in the cricket world? This following text conversation with my father today has cheered me up no end:-

10:17 am, father - Probably had my last game of cricket yesterday. Ligament damage to right knee (the good one) and maybe cartilage as well

10:17am, me - How did you manage that?

10:59am, father - Taking another quick single in the over 70's game

11:00am, me - Is there such a thing in an over 70s game? Aren't you under 70 though?

3:14pm, father - Played for Berkshire/Hampshire against Worcester. You can play if you are 68.

4:54pm, me - So to recap. You are playing as an under age player and managed to injure yourself going for a quick single in an over 70s game? Do you know how funny that is?

4:58pm,  father - Not as funny as the fact that I was the fourth person to receive treatment in the match. The first aid box spent more time on the pitch than any of the batsman!

Shame he's crock but I thought it was worth sharing.

You're old man is a legend! If I'm still playing at 40 I'll be lucky! Body is falling apart....

Just the thought of having so few players that they combine counties and and let players 2 year under the age limit play. Then watching to 70 year olds take a quick single, following by an ambulance parked at square for emergencies.  :D

Going to have to get down to one of these games, sounds incident packed!

We have one guy who plays ona sunday who's in his early 50's.  couple of years ago, his knee ligaments snapped.  He's still playing and is our opening bowler...

Our opener is 57, he has the highest score (76) and the highest number of boundaries in the team. He recons he has another 10 years left in him & is bat is older than I am!
