A Sunday like no other....

We won. It was awesome.

It was pretty hot and with common sense totally intact, I elected to bowl first. Fastbowler and Hemant provided a very strong opening, ripping through much of the top order with a tone of casualness and regularity. It was certainly very strange, we were sharp in the field, everyone seemed lively  and it was if this team had been winning for fun, like future Leicester City. I had never experienced this on a Sunday. I didn't want to think it, but at 41-4,…


2nds vs. Lohana

In films there are moments where the director allows the characters to fall into slow-motion and, I don't know, break something accidentally, creating great, if somewhat cheesy, tension.

Anyhow, it was declared by the ever cheerful skipper (who is beginning to groom a ginger mullet) that we should drown, oh no that action made by him was bowl. We bowled first.

Varun and Ian opened up. It…


Sunday Friendly vs. Maccabi- Don't worry, it's only a heavy downpour.

It's fair to say that against another opposition this game would've been called off, but credit has to go to the pure insanity and overenthusiastic attitude of our oppo during what many would've described as heavy rain, torrential, flash flood, end of the world weather and it is thanks to them and their bowling that we can revel in the delight of a win.

Felix (on his return) either won or lost the toss and we ended up batting. Both openers enjoyed fleeting clear skies but soon after…
