    16 Degrees and 90% chance of rain – perfect for cricket. We bowled first and the Clyde unwittingly inspired us to perform to the levels of our Sensai  by cranking out Rocketman as the first song on their jukebox. This did indeed lead to greatness with wickets falling in regular intervals to the Dog, Snipper, Alex, Dutchy and Sizzle. Some guy pretending to be JRod took 3/3 and took 2 catches. I repeat to 2 catches.  In a great and inspiring captaincy move, I ignored Ray Jayners advice and had a second slip for the entire game – 2 catches taken and probably 6 votes to the captain. Clyde bowled out for 140 in 22 overs.

    The Quokkas came out and, to be honest, did it easy; winning in the 19th over for the loss of 1 wicket (the real JRod). The Clydes bowlers had no answers for the big hits and dashing cover drives from Snipper (32 off 18), Alex (30 of 17) and Rofan (30 off 18) or the Doggedness of the Dog 27NO with Special hitting the winning runs with 6 overs to spare for a 9 wicket win.
