Agent Orange Cricket Match Report

Tonight’s match was a good test for the team, and I think we learned a lot from it. Overall, I was pretty happy with the way we went about things. We batted first and couldn’t really get much going. Jordan and I opened and we had a run out off the first ball (jackpot ball so -10 to start). From there we made an alright recovery, getting our score for the partnership back to 12. What we struggled with, and the whole team struggled with really was getting the ball to the back net and scoring the big run shots. Thanks to a nice 3rd partnership stand from Gozza and Paul we were able to post a semi-defendable 49.

That 49 turned into 59 when we took a wicket off the first ball in the field. That was the spark we needed and we bowled pretty well throughout. We restricted them to 62 and managed to win at least a skin for all our toil. If we had held our catches and hit the stumps on a few of our close shaves we would have won. We had clumsy fingers in the warm-up and it translated to the match.  Gordon followed up his Agent Orange record bowling figures last week with another awesome performance and Jordan has adjusted well to the Indoor environment now. It really feels like our bowling has no weak links and lots of variety at the moment.
