Agent Orange Cricket Match Report

We are finally back on the winners list! I was surprised that despite our recent losing streak we still remained inside the top four leading into last nights match. We were set to play the team in 5th place, so it was an important game for us to win. We started in the field as they were a little short to begin with, and we managed to restrict them to 53. There were no weak links in the field or in the bowling attack, it was really good to be able to put them under pressure. Still, the way our batting has been in recent weeks I wasn’t getting carried away with our performance in the field.

Ben and I opened the batting at we put together a mostly excellent 38, despite a pretty close run out call going against me. We didn’ lose any stupid wickets, which was our downfall last week. In the second pairing Paul played his best innings in a long time, he was probably inspired by his batting partner. In his first game for the team, Trevor Gibson smashed 28 and was probably unlucky not to score even more. With the team well ahead going into the last pairing, it brought abck memories of a few weeks earlier when we collapsed to lose from this position. Mike and Gordon handled themselves brilliantly though, learning from our past mistakes and putting together a partnership that secured us the game and won us all three skins as well.

Cricket now goes on a break until the new year, we will be having a few training sessions over that time though. When we play our best I think we can beat everyone in the league, which is exciting. The problem at the moment is that we are too inconsistent and the difference between our best and worse, particularly batting is miles apart.
