Finally got my first runs of the season on Saturday.
Missed the first 2 games of the season, then
3rd game - got 0 n.o., came in for the last over down the bowler's end and didn't face a ball
4th game - got 0, 3rd ball duck, but the worst wicket I have ever played on by a mile, to give you an example, we bowled the opposition out for 45.
5th game - got 6(!). Though I was quite happy with this as I survived 16 overs and it was a very defensive job as we couldn't win and were playing for the winning draw. Their bowlers were getting frustrated and deliberatly trying to bowl short and hostile at me. Isn't there something so intensly satisfying about just keeping the opposition bowlers at bay to the point when they get really pissed off and riled up?
I eventually got out trying to play a ball I should've just kept out as I was trying to rotate the strike as our last man in was up the other end.
Away to the best team in the league next weekend. We are currently 4th: Played:5, Won:2, Lost:2, Losng Draw:1. We have possibly the best bowling attack in the league, but our batting line-up is one of the worst. Would be more than happy with a mid-tab;e finish after a bottom of the table without a single victory performance last season.
