Had a practice t20 match yesterday. Umpires said there is no lbw because batsmen cry and its a friendly match. We had an 11 year old offie in out team whos bowling figures read: 3 overs 2 for 13 which also included 2 dropped catches. We won by 99 runs having posted a 199 run target.

I think turning up to a ground after 6 weeks of 20+ degrees weather and finding a soft green deck is pretty village 😅

Then again, so is throwing your gear and having a breakdown after being Bowled first ball of the game on said pitch by a double bouncer from the quickest bowler in the league.

I have come across a couple of those on the least few weeks.  A few groundsmen have clearly decided to water than leave the covers on to avoid the pitch completely dusting over and becoming dangerous.  The bounce is low but I would rather that than a dangerous pitch to play on

Our groundsman tried that approach - except he only managed to water both ends on a length
