CustomBats Primary Club 2009
« on: May 10, 2009, 06:54:55 PM »

Inspired by Leo I'm starting a CustomBats Primary Club - a club for anybody who gets out for a first ball duck this year.

Let us know when you were out, how you were out (links to scorecards are welcome!) and how you feel about it. Feel free to come on this thread to drown your sorrows with fellow first ball victims!

If you've suffered the humiliation of a first baller at any point in your career , you can join the official primary club, which help raises money for sports and recreational facilities for the visually impaired.

http://www.primaryclub.org/

I'm going to make posting on this thread fairly exclusive - unless you've bee out for a first baller this year, your post will be DELETED!

It happens to the best of us guys - just ask KP and Shiv!

First league match of the season - I go in with J Allen running rampant. Well I should have got forward but he was a malinga style slinger and was literally releasing it from level with his shoulder (9 oclock on clock face) and so you couldnt see it until the last second.
Didn't see it until it shattered my stumps giving me my first ever golden duck.

Nick Zala           Lbw  J Allen    40           
Tom Ash           Bowled  J Allen    0         
Zabi Maqsoodi   Caught  J Wilson    12         
Tom Buggey   Caught  J Allen    1         
Imtiaz Zazay   Stumped  M Dixon    8         
Leo Fernandes   Bowled  J Allen    0         
Richard Tinsley   Bowled  J Allen    1         
Izzat Ullah Khan   Bowled  J Allen    4         
Ben Lines            Bowled  J Allen    0         
Darrell Clamp   Caught  J Allen    2         
Oliver Zala             Not Out     0

Bowler must have been pleased...
Player name   Overs     Maidens   Runs   Wickets   Average   Economy
J Allen             13.0       4             25      8             3.13            1.92

The season before last, I had 4 ducks in the first 6 games. I was quite correctly dropped.

Guaranteed the duck cup for my club this year. Think I had 9 or 10 for both league and friendly XIs.

Nah we got relegated. I hear you were promoted though, so we won't have the opportunity to play against each other :(
