From Captain Alex…
The weather was perfect. The oval was idyllic. The other team was late. We batted first. Most of us contributed with the bat. Rohan and I made 30. They had a few great bowlers. They took some wild catches. As a bowling attack they were a very decent I reckon, so well done us.
Then we had a break. Snags weren’t one quarter ready which came as a surprise to absolutely no one.
We went into field. Energy was high. Very supportive attitude from us. We held every catch we were hit – fucking bravo. We had some food over the drinks break.
Josh, in his first game bowled some good mediums. Took a third over when it mattered too. Peter, the younger of the Sforcinas in general energy, also bowled very well.
We backed each other up well. Lotta encouragement. And that meant when it came down to the wire we had the upper hand. We held our nerve. Diving efforts from Quokkas narrowly avoided a couple of 4s in the final overs.
We were all in and properly committed and behind each other and that’s why we finished the game with our nose ahead. Well done Peter-the-younger-Sforcina for a level headed, accurate final over. Top work all. A memorable win. Thanks Slug for the pictures and updates.
