After the opposition batsmans tantrum on Saturday I went into Sundays game in a bit of a mood and annoyed at cricket.

Thankfully yesterdays game was played in really good spirit and was one of the most enjoyable games Ive played in for a long time. I batted 5 and came in at 150-3 after 30. The pitch was used the day before, I went back to play a pull shot to a short ball and the ball missed the bottom of my off stump by a few inches, so I swiftly put away any back foot shots! Eventually we got 170-ish, got 11 before I ran past one from their first team spinner who was turning it round corners! He ended up with 6-for to restrict us. I still need to learn how to play a spinner that actually turns it!

They got about 100 in reply which wasnt a bad score on that track, they just bowled 40 extras too many! Took one wicket in my sole over at the end.

What was great was that both sides had 3/4 older guys who no longer play Saturday cricket. 2/3 lads around my age (late teens early 20s) and the rest all under 13! They were a good bunch of guys, their young keeper was positive and complementing everyones shots as we did when their kids batted. But best of all, nobody on either side had a tantrum at decisions, we all had a good laugh and most of our side stayed for a couple of beers afterwards!

Saturday's opposition conceded... unimpressed, that makes it 3 weeks on the trot with no proper cricket now. At least it helps our promotion bid as we'll get max points.

Played a competitive works match yesterday evening. We scored 167-3 and opposition looked like they would they chase it down but an inspired bit of captaincy helped swing it back to us. An occasional cricketer was given a bowl and his first over wasn't great but the skipper gave him a second over and amongst the wides, he sent down an absolute peach of an in-swinging yorker that knocked back middle stump of their main batsman (who had scored 80+). Not sure who was more surprised, the batsman or the bowler? My task was then quite easy and picked up 3 wickets for just 2 runs so ran out comfortable winners in the end but decent game.

Were top, played bottom of the division side at a school pitch notorious for not being looked after. Won the toss and put them in. Bowled them out for 112. Me 8-1-16-4.
Hit them off in 17 overs 1 down.
All good but havent batted in 3 weeks, and I cant make nets either so my 8 bats are not getting much action.

Rubbish season I am having so far and my team. We got such good team but we as team failing badly. Scored 50 in 2nd match but nothing major since then.
Today's match was so so rubbish. Umpire did not give any lbw out. We lost in end due to that Thier captain had 6 lbw shouts and all turned down by umpire plus one stumping.

2nd win on the bounce today with my 1st game in 3 weeks, as vice captain I did the toss as skipper stuck in trafffic and won the toss after usual skipper has lost 7 in a row and batted 1st on a lovely track at Ipswich playing on the 1st team pitch. After the toss the Oppo skip says we have an umpire today panel approved you happy for him to do both ends. Yea no probs I said. Anyway I get trigged from a HUGE inswinger the just clips the outside of my pad and runs to fine leg batting on leg stump a foot outside my crease playing forward, no 6 & 7 get 1st ballers LBW. Luckily our no3 and other opener managed to not get hit at all on the pads and scored 113  and 85 respectively to get us a score of 241/6 from 45 overs.

In reply our quick bowled no 1,3,4 in the 1st over and they shut up shop finished 131/9. In 2nd innings we had 15 or so really good appeals for LBW as well as a massive edge I took behind all not out. Learning curve if ever Oppo offer me an umpire again Ill just refuse.

19 points and now 5 wins and 1 rained off from our 1st half of the season puts us in 4th, availability though is now becoming a. Big worry so fingers crossed for the 2nd half of the season.

A good win yesterday. We got put in on a greenish wicket. Our opener got a second ball duck but the opener and the number 3 put on 120 for the second wicket before the opener got out LBW for 30. Number 3 got 124 and our number 4 got 43 not out I chipped in with 7no to end our innings on 226-4. They were never really in the Chase as we got one of their openers and number 3 cheaply then wickets fell regularly and they ended up 148-9 off their 40.

No match for me today due to the league having odd number of teams probably wouldn't have got a game in its just started to pour down.

Played both Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

Saturday went out on loan, skipper promised me a bowl but first change bowlers wrapped up opposition innings inside 30 overs. I didn't mind but I would have liked more action in the field because it took until the 20th over that I actually got to the field the ball. Anyhow skipper asked if I would like to bat at No.3, an invitation that I don't get very often and one ball later I realised why, out first ball LBW.  We won relatively easily but it's a bit embarrassing contributing absolutely nothing to a victory.

Sunday played a cup match (for my club team) against a side 2 divisions higher than us. Managed to send down 8 overs, picked up a wicket and seeing it was my first proper bowling spell of the season, it wasn't too bad. In reply we got nowhere near their score but still managed our highest total of the season. Went in at No.7 near the end and made 14no which although not a significant contribution, it at least eradicated the yesterday's golden duck from my mind. Opposition were a great set of lads and one of those afternoons where cricket is the winner.
