Hallo, so here we are at Isfield to play W G Gracefully in the glorious Sussex country side, home of the Isley brothers ( fake news) the M G’s won the toss and elected to bat. Up steps the skip an jerry to open.
A promising start apart from biffalini getting out for a duck but hey ho up steps the majestic koala bear we call Dell to add a wonderful 77 ( refer to score book for other stats ta) Ian ( wiggo) played some nice strokes but was unfortunately run out and jerry did well to get closer to 7000 runs before we sell him as a sex slave in the Middle East but had a good knock! Boom boom yours truly didn’t need to bat as we managed 190 something in the 40 overs.
Feeling confidant we took to the field to have a go..it was a good start keeping run rate at bay with Newland and Gallagher (Gilbert an George) bowling tight enough.
Unfortunately the W G batsman got there eyes in, opened there legs and showed there class. Change of bowler (me) and later joined by Ashton tried are best but got a bit slogged and felt the tied turning…
I managed to bowl a beute and middle stumped a danger man but after the party normal service resumed and in came another W G ringer to piss on our fireworks… Bollocks they continued to twat Terry and all to reach target with 9 overs to spare.
Still we did have a nice tea although a bit pricey and the early eve sun was welcome ( but not the ball that pole axed my knee!) and had a nice pint in the Laughing Fish pub near the Lavender line among the nice gloating company of W G Gracefully. Ta ta Ricky.
and here are some pictures from the day…
and a random picture that Ricky wants to share:
Great stuff Ricky and the quality of photos seems to getting better and better.
Good stuff Ricky + Del! Still having nightmares about the game though tbh
Beautiful Grey Pride Photo, Zonk! Del’s lens really loves you. Or should that be glans?
We might have lost because we are playing all the wrong rules. Apparently cricket should go something like this – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYrue4oXCbo
