Nothing to smile about
We played Agricola earlier in the season and were beaten with something to spare. A re-shuffled side lacking Cap'n Badmo fared even worse in the rematch at Harlington. We won the toss and opted to bat. It didn’t start too well with MGF getting a good ball and ending up bowled via edge and pad and then the skipper mistiming a pull for a simple return catch. CK and Arsey saw off the opening spells with a cautious approach but the first over of spin saw Arsey miss a straight one. CK offered a sharp chance which was taken well and the collapse was in full spate. Elvis and the Smutmeister were bowled, Chris was lbw to one that kept low and at 63 for 7 we were in danger of entering the record books for the wrong reasons. The two elderly gentlemen in the side saw us past the dreaded lowest score mark but a couple of run outs and a peach of a ball to Pretty Boy saw us all out for a pretty miserable 82.

It didn't look challenging and that proved to be the case. The bowlers all put in a decent effort and we did nick a couple out, but an eight wicket loss was a fair reflection on a performance that was well below par. Agricola played far better than we did and the scorecard shows this pretty clearly. I could describe the horror show in greater detail but I think we should just draw a veil over it.

...and on the bright side we were in the pub before 6pm

Big up to the Dazzler who ascended to Captain for the first time and immediately steered us to a tremendous drubbing. He rather blotted his copybook however by taking a tremendous catch en route, which is clearly just not in the spirit of our team.
