Cricket Day 2: Hampton Central vs. Bentleigh Uniting

I knew going into the day that I would be batting first drop so I had a bit of nervous energy in the morning while I was waiting around to go to the game. Chasing 281 I had just a few overs to collect my thoughts before Joe got out for 4 and I had to head to the crease. My plan was simple, just to try and stay out there as long as I […]

Cricket Day 1: Hampton Central vs. Bentleigh Uniting

We won the toss and elected to bowl on a pretty warm overcast day, there was a nice breeze though so it wasn’t too oppressive.

Cricket Day 2: Hampton Central vs. West Bentleigh

Going into the days play the opposition were 0-57 chasing our 145 and it looked like the writing was on the wall. The batsman that destroyed us last week was nowhere to be seen though and it was a whole new ball game. We promptly took about 7 for 20 and the game was in our grasp. Unfortunately, the last two wickets (we only needed 9) evaded us for too long and we ended up […]
