First Game of the Season

Post by MD14 on Sat Apr 12, 2008 3:05 pm

Played my first match of the year today in the biting winds and intermittent showers of early April. I was playing for my academy side vs. a University second team on pre-season tour. The captain lost the toss and we were put in on an erratic astro. I scored a slightly sluggish 54 before being stumped down the leg side losing my balance. We pushed on and thanks to some feeble spin bowling and some frantic running we finished on 267-7 from 45.

In reply the opposition (more than likely suffering the effects of a late-night drinking session) looked pretty out of their depth against our openers and they fell quickly to 9-3 and 47-5. After some lusty blows from their number 7 they succumbed for around 160 to give us a comfotable victory.

Despite the weather it was a nice game to start the season with. The bowling was accurate but unthreatening and I felt in good form although there was some playing and missing. Got some good sledging in at the start of their innings too!

I look forward to hearing how other members' first games go

First game today no byes when i was keeping and a stumping. Should also have had a catch but the umpire decidefd to turn his hearing aid off.
Opened as well and got 10 before being retired then when i went back in at the end we had to run for everything so i got run out for 15.
That's higher than my highest score last year so hopefully i can keep on getting runs.

3 and then caught off the outside edge trying to flick it away on leg. 5 people got ducks. 1 bye but that was off our spinner who bowled a googly and i thought it was a leggie and just missed it.
