Just Mooching About at the Cricket

Yesterday was a difficult day, as the news of a Covid spike in the town set me on edge and made me suddenly get very angsty about all the maskless car sharing going on in the car park and an insanely daft finger buffet another team decided to have.

A fine idea at times like this.

So it was a relief to get home.

Today I wasn't playing, but I did take myself down the cricket ground for a few hours to watch our first team to play Gotham. Sadly Batman wasn't playing, but they were a decent team as it was without any Dark Knights in the ranks.

It certainly looked hard for our batsman to score, as we were 87 for 5 when I arrived with about 12 overs of our innings to go. But the skipper played a great knock to see us reach 150. Hopefully he'll be thrilled to see that he's mentioned here, as well as the guy batting with him who must have found it rather more difficult to hit the ball than he does when I'm bowling at him in the nets.

Both lads scored 35 or so.

I then watched the first 15 overs of the Gotham replied, which was marked by some extremely tidy bowling from our openers who took a wicket each before I left after having lapped the ground god knows how many times.

Apparently, it turned into a sensational game where Gotham made it home by just two wickets in the last over. Foolish man was I to leave.

  1. You should never leave a sporting fixture before the end, though lots of people do, even when they've paid a fortune for admission.

    1. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.
