It may well be March but that means little for the Quokkas squad, so keen to get into the 2007 season that they have already started the nets.
Arriving at Lords at midday on a Sunday was an achievement in itself for most in attendance, but they managed to go on from there; donning their whites and practising for well over an hour.
While The Rev was limited to batting due to his recent fight with gravity, the rest of the squad showed some excellent early form.
The Attack (despite shoulder injury tremors) was as quick as ever, Smithers was hitting the line at pace, The Mantis looked nippy at the crease & managed to turn a few (after some more pre-season advice from the Rev – remember what it led to last year!), The Skip hustled and heckled, and The Egg showed glimpses of his new ‘mystery ball’ for the year.
More excitingly was the work with the ball being displayed by PJ, who may need to be renamed ‘Glenn Miller’ for all the swing he was getting.
Exciting times lie ahead.
