Our second game versus the excellent lads of Fawe Park CC. In 2010 it was nailibiter - they won with a wicket to spare. This year, similar, but this time a huge run fest. Winning the toss, Badmo put them into bat as CGC was late, suffering from a gnat bite on his leg or some similar nasty ailment, curable only ingesting large quantities of Sainsburys cookies. SteveO opened with a snorter of a ball the came back off the seam and took out an off stump. But truly that was the one thing the benign wicket did all day. I don't have their part of the score book, but a 50 and a ton, both pretty chance less and some big hitting saw tea taken with a massive 233 to get. CK1 and SteveO the pick of our bowling, with the Professor having a day to forget. Big up to Badmo for a direct hit run out from nearly the boundary though

After the usual excellent tea we set off chasing nearly 7 an over and pretty much kept it up till the last couple. Big thwacking from the Professor and Ex Capn Ben laid the ground work but as the run rate crept up to 8-9 an over it started to get on top of us and in last over with 13 needed it couldn't be done and it was handshakes all round.

An excellent game played in an excellent spirit and pretty much evens till the end. You can't ask much more from sport than this.
