off to a losing start

better late than never but i thought i'd post our result from last weeks cricket match.

earl stonham batted first and posted a score of 189 for 4 from their 40 overs. we bowled well and with a bit more luck we'd have had a few more wickets. i played pretty well behind the stumps and took two catches.

our innings was a tale of two halves. we raced to 100 runs off the first 20 overs and then had a bit of a collapse in the second 20 overs. after 40 overs we had reached 186 for 8, just short of the target. i hit a pretty good 13 runs in the rain.

overall not a bad result for our first game of the season and even thought we lost we picked up a few bonus points which always come in handy at the end of the season. we currently sit 5th out of 9 in division 3.

next game is against nowton at home. hopefully we can do a bit better this week and get a win this time. i'll let you know how we get on.
