Club Day

by Ian Burrows 0 Comments

We have 23 people turning up tomorrow I think. We will start a proper game
at 1.00. 40 overs per side, maximum 7 per bowler and retire at 50 (or
earlier if appropriate). If the team batting first is bowled out in less
than 40 overs batsmen can come back in: this is a practice match after all.
The same can apply to second innings if we are not too cold!

Drinks (tea and squash) will be available but please bring your own food.
Chips will be on offer at the pub afterwards!

Proposed teams

1. Shiv, Shane, Jamie, Githin, Chris, Shiv B, Neil, Dave S, Ian, Bill, Ludo

2. Graham, Matt, Abhijit, Kev A, Prath, Ramesh, Clive, Bob, Michael,
Nassar, Steve, Jack (new player)

Friendly with RAM

This was a good work out played in good spirit. We batted first and made
209 for 4 (I think). Abhijit starred with 50 on debut. We batted well
throughout. Febin impressed against their stronger bowlers and Graham, Ed
and Shiv all retired.
Our bowlers all did well lead by Shiv and Chris pegging them down at the
start. We used 8 bowlers and 7 took wickets, including Shiv B on debut and
Febin with his only ball. The fielding highlights were excellent catches,
in the gully by Bob and at mid off by Steve. RAM were bowled out for 141
giving us victory by 68 runs.

Our annual Club Day is scheduled for Saturday April 29th at 1pm at
Lordshill. This will be a chance for everyone to have some pre-season
practice and for form to be looked at before picking teams for the first
league games the following week. Players will be mixed into 2 teams once we
know who will be there. Please email Ian Burrows (ianburrows99@gmail.com)
