Enjoyed last nights game even though we lost with the umpire standing back bowled off 6 paces wicket to wicket  targeting off stump  no pace on the ball just bounce.

What kind of 'heat' do you normally bring Al?

Might have to leave one of the three jumpers I've got packed at home after all!
Warmest start to a season for a while if the forecast's right.

A reasonable start with the bat. 21 off 7 (caught on the boundary) and 30* off 9 in two T20s so far, and 47 off 54 (caught, rather improbably, at short cover as the ball stuck in the blokes armpit as he tried to get out of the way) in a longer format game.

Bowled ok with not much luck, one wicket bowled, went at about a run a ball overall.

Next game not til a week tomorrow.

Hope everyone goes well this season. Personally i will be back in the UK at the start of June and hoping to get in some games in June and July, if i get 5/6 games in i'll be over the moon.  Could we set a forum goal for the season?  I think between us we can get

10 - 100s

25 - 50s

20 - 5fers

1 - hat trick

many beers, even more laughs, and zero injuries.

Hat trick of what? Getting yourself out in a comedic fashion in your first 5 balls, three games on the trot? Challenge accepted!

Looking forward to playing our local rivals for the league season opener this Saturday!
Ohh and maybe even see a forum favourite @Vulcan Cricket?

Competitive friendly on Weds this week. Opened up against 2 bowlers on the payroll, one was bang on the money and the other sprayed it. Fair to say neither thought much of my technique 😂

Clean bowled for 29 from 20 including a very pleasing 6 to Long off with the Chase Lam

Away to last years runaway champions on Saturday and we've got a bus of 16 going down. Should be a good day!

We lost. Put 180 up, came in at 8 and scored 7 but our openers were just too slow and not getting on with it. Started well with the ball and had them 3 down, but we lost it when a slogger came in.

Captain is already doing my nut with his micromanagement

Not the start I wanted but a victory none the less. Inside edged a rank long hop onto pad onto off stump. Good to get all the crappy dismissals out early.

First league game of the season today for us. So we were at home in a new league after 3rd straight promotion last year and played a local rival who have been mid placed in this league for the last few seasons. Lost the toss and we were asked to bat. Pitch was good for time of year, with a little pace and carry (our track is generally a batting pitch with good pace and decent, consistent bounce) we got off to a good start thanks to some loose early bowling being too full and we were 35-0 from 6 overs, they then dragged it back a bit and we went to drinks at 87-2. After drinks I managed to take 16 from the 1st over after drinks but introduction of spin slowed run rate down, I was finally out in the 37th over for 75, cutting to point. We ended 209-5 from our 45.

After what can only be described as early season greed for tea, we just had so much food from sandwiches, to home baked sausage rolls, onion barges, homemade cake pretty much anything you could think of we took to the field. 1st ball if there innings our opener removed middle and off stump from the ground with an unplayable Yorker, not sure if this then set the tone but unfortunately three innings was really poor with the other opener and No3 dead batting for 22 overs to be 42-1 at drinks. We then prized out brigadier block caught behind by yours truly and with and end open our young leggie who had come on leaps and bounds in the last 3 seasons picked up 3 wickets in an over. Some more middle order blocking resulted in us finally getting the last 2 wickets in the 39th over. A good workout for our bowlers but Ill never understand the mindset of some players and teams in this format of cricket where its just win or lose.

Anyway a good start to my season as also conceded 0 byes and glove work felt really good. Finally used my GM kit after thinking I was going to go GN or Surridge this season, I went with the tried and trusted and my Noir Signature was superb so thanks Rob from Six sixes for another lovely GM
