    It's warming up at The Tabernacle, where the Baptists are trying to defend 315 against Levin's Wellworth.

      Bloody hell, what was that guys? Part of it is on me for telling you to be too defensive early on but last time we played this lot you didn't make it through 50 overs. But still, 6 overs to go we had 6 wickets in hand and 59 runs to get. And what do you do? Score 10 runs? Lose 6 wickets? I'm not blaming you Jezza, Dylan, Malcolm. You're not there to score runs although we might be having words abut your line and length in the first innings. But for now, well, everyone have a think about their decision making in this game.

        Casuals v Ferrets is just too tense. Gripping.

          Good game. I did not expect that when the 6th wicket fell.

            Neither did I but the Worm told me if we could stop the collapse we’d be OK.

              Antepli Ejderha sorry pal, hard luck. It was such an epic I’d have been gutted to lose, so I’m sure you are.

                That was a decent match, I thought I needed 250 minimum and an earlier wicket, that cluster of four just made it interesting but was too late to swing it my way.

                  I'm out of the cup but I did better than I expected. I kept the opposition down to 219/10 but then got bowled out for 123 in 37 overs. One downside if that all my seniors are a bit tired now and it's going to be a pain to rest them enough through the next couple of weeks.

                    I had a similar experience, played away to a better team, made 308, had them three down when they were half way to their target then I couldn't break a partnership and we lost by six wickets with seventeen balls remaining. Still I enjoyed being part of the big competition and made a handy 37k from gate receipts. Now a lot of my players are knackered and tomorrow's very winnable T20 is going to be an exercise in trying to win with the minimum possible. Defeated by Etienne on Saturday, the youths got beat today so I've already lost more matches in August than I did in the whole of July.

                      Well. Two close games last night. That was annoying.

                      Well played your boys Etienne.

                        Three concurrent games going in OTF II, 12 overs bowled in the first innings.

                          I ummed and ahhed whether to use inexperienced bowler Rodrigues and now have my answer. He’s going for 8+ an over just when we’d taken a wicket, and the Ducks are getting away.
