The Value of Sport
It was a practice game before the serious stuff of the Church Times competition and for some reason unbeknownst to the rest of us the captain had picked last years runners up as our practice competition. Suffice it to say we did not win and three big sixes got hit off me. Still, I managed to fend off their quickest bowler at the death, although what I was doing facing him I still don't know. He bowled a no ball and I called the other batsman for a bye - why? I could have stayed at the non strikers end safe and sound. That said I was pleased that I did as I discovered I could still see the ball and he didn't seem that fast (just hope we don't meet them again, or he doesn't read this!).
Still, I had an enjoyable day out and found out a bit more about my fellow players - relationships are important, and this is another way of building them.
