Thirteen Things about tonight's game
2... We almost didn't get a side out but dragged in two ringers at the last minute.
3... One of the ringers got recruited in the changing room before the game !
4... They batted first and managed to annoy me by not giving a stumping out and by calling one of my deliveries a no ball.
5... I don't get mad, I get even. Most of the 12 balls I bowled tonight were the fastest I've bowled for a while.
6... But they still squeezed 13 off my 2 overs to get a total of 87.
7... Not so many stumpings (missed a few :-( ) and not enough catches meant their 89 actually flattered them.
8... Blew up my right calf near the end of our fielding.
9... Batted first with Ringer 2 and carried on the get even theme with some hitting.
10... Good catching restricted that partnership to 39.
11... Our other people didn't really get going, leading to an extremely close finish. We got 85, losing by 2 runs.
12... Things were made more interesting by the squash players breaking their windows, had to take the long way round.
13... Made the mistake of running back to the office to avoid the rain, blew both calf muscles up ... They seem to have settled now, although they were complaining by the end of the drive home.
