i feel i have been neglecting my blog a bit so thought an update on the cricket situation was needed - so here goes.
on sunday 11th may we played edwardstone away and lost by the rather large margin of 6 wickets. we batted first but only managed to score 99 runs (i contributed with a second ball duck!). needless to say they didn't take long to knock those runs off (21.5 overs actually).
the following week (18/05/08) we were at home to bury st edmunds academy team and guess what? we lost again, this time by 31 runs.
now on 25th may we managed to avoid defeat against top of the table hadleigh. this was due to a great performance from the weather which meant the game was cancelled!
our next game was on 15th june at home against tendring park. they batted first and posted a good total of 193 for 3. we gave chase and game up 15 runs short. it was a real good effort considering we had a very depleted side.
now this week we got ourselves back to winning ways with a great performance against horringer. we won the toss and batted first. both opening batsmen scored over 50 and we finished on 168 for 5.
our bowlers then set about demolishing their innings and they finished 76 all out.
we're now in 6th place in the league with 9 games to go.
our next game is this sunday at home against 2nd place cavendish wanderers.
