Won today in the cup. Batted first and scored 315-7. Were 100-5 though but two batsmen both hit 100s before being both dismissed in the last few overs. Me and the number 8 nudged singles around to get the score up to 300 before our number 8 hit about 14 in the last over.

They got 255-8 in reply. I bowled 7-1-37-2. Both caught on the boundary!

Had to make the horrible choice of letting the team down or ruining my Mum's 60th Birthday meal yesterday. Have never left early before but was given about 5 warnings by my Dad in the weeks leading up.

Batting second chasing 247 to win, and knowing i had to be realistically off the pitch by 7.30. Had to wait until nearly seven batting at 3. Managed to whack 57 before having to retire at quarter to eight, this after watching 3 of the more useful batsmen all throw their wicket away, plus another i managed to run out..........gonna cost me a pint that one.

I even got dropped twice in two balls and should of been run out in the same over.

Found out later we were all out for 211 and the skipper wondered whether i should of opened

Oh and i made it with 5 mins to spare.

I have been picked for the Friendly XI on Sunday, hurray!
Obviously the selectors missed me being bowled through the gate 4 times by the same bowler last night. I reckon he was chucking it anyway.

I play for my Brother's team, only the U15s, we had a game yesterday which was won easily against a group a league struggler's who played with 10. We batted first and scored 249-5, and we bowled them all out for about 90 in the chase. I bowled 1 over yesterday which went for 4, and batting only scored 6...

I thought about posting this in GPs. I committed myself to cricket last saturday despite the stirring occasion at Selhurst park. We played at the Civil service ground in Chiswick and quite unusually I was asked to open the batting. We were rained off after barely an 3 quarters of an hours play with our score 63-0 of which I had 36. I'm gutted. Denied the chance of either a rare big score and also the chance of seeing the mighty Palace on the road to recovery If the rain had only come in early. A win for my team, a half century for me and a win for Palace would have made my day.

Should I do anything to repair either of these
Depends how deep.Dents you are stuck with. If it was only a shower you bat will probably dry out. If you have an airing cupboard try that. Is the bat cracked or is the surface just splintered . If the latter just smooth out and then use Bat tape or such like and bind tightly. Cricket specialists can carry out some repairs. If cracked across the grain to the point where it seems to rattle i am afraid you are stuck with a piece of firewood. In short ifd the crack goes across the front you may get away with it. If it goes through the blade front to back you are stuffed

I'm in Spain so I couldn't play yesterday but they thrashed an office team with 8 men by about 280 runs!

My team batted first and got about 330, and bowled the oppo all out out for about 45 or something, apparently we bowled 29 extras though, bizarre!!

The dent seems to have flattened out after a couple of nets, and it has dried out (though doesn't feel as smooth as it did before).
The split isn't too deep, pretty much just the surface, so I may get some bat tape and repair it that way.
If I keep playing, I'll probably get a new bat next summer anyway, as I think it is too short anyway (I'm tall, and the bat is a short handle).
I'd just like to get my eye back in this year and in the winter nets and try making a go of it properly next summer.

Thanks for the advice.

Our sason starts in October here. Although we have the Woman's U19 South American Championship in September. I am not playing, but I might get involved in the towelling down and massaging of sore limbs.

Hi guys, not posted on topic before but have been reading up as always interested in other players exploits.

Played 3rd game this year as feeling my way back after not playing regularly for 8 or so years. Previous scores of 12 and 1 this season eclipsed by my maiden 50 and century finishing on 124* out of 210. I was a bit lucky but played pretty well considering its only my 3rd game back. I would've been happy to get double figures this season! Just annoyed i now cant play till 5th sept!

Played yesterday for first time since century, and was bowled for 4 playing accross the line to a standard straight one far too early in innings - poor shot selection. Last game 26th so one innings left this season.

We ended up getting promoted in second place. Finished a single point behind first after a team dropped out of the league that we'd beaten but team in first had only drew against. Those results were wiped and subsequently we dropped a place.

I ended the season with an average of 53.2 in timed games and something silly in T20 cricket. (around 80odd but the stats were never recorded). Pretty successful season all round

Looking forward to it.

I recently signed up for a mate's team because my team have a lot of interest this year so I won't be getting that many games.

They went up last year but they have slowly lost all their best players over the winter so they are in a league ridiculously above their standard. I expect some heavy defeats over the summer, but I should be doing some bowling and wicket keeping though so I shouldn't all be that bad.

We have already organised a friendly with a pub team who are based a few miles from us, and where the team apparently go for a pint after each game. It should be on April 2nd, or the 9th.

Any of you lads know any decent teams around the Milton Keynes area? Might be moving up there for work in the near future and will be looking for a team to play for.

Just finished my Apertura in Argentina, 2nd most wickets in the Premier league and 3rd on average. Been working for the ICC and the ACA doing coaching which has been absolutely awesome, terrific way to spend 5 months.

Never knew they played cricket in Argentina, do they have a national team or a national club league?
