Brad gets bowled by a girl!

The dream (nightmare?) captaincy team of Brad and Tim, won the toss and we batted. Panther was soon out LBW, which he even agreed with, so the captains were together. They put on 55 in 10 overs until Paulo lived up to his name and was caught for 25- although Brad later claimed that some of his runs had gone to Tim!. 2nd team captain Dave then came out and looked fluent but Brad, 31 (score not age) was then bowled by one of their girls, by a decent ball- pitched middle, hit top of off - and that was my description as umpire! Biddle snr., thinking it was 3 in the morning not afternoon, quickly got into his rhythm and a 45 run partnership developed until Dave got an edge to the keeper, out for 23. Ian soon followed in similar fashion for 30 before Chris Hillman, again looking good, was run out, quickly followed by Bryn, leaving again in similar circumstances. It was left to Tyler and me to bat out the remaining overs, trying but mostly failing, to hit the ball or avoid the fielders - 182 for 7 did not look enough. After an augmented tea, with extra salad and donuts, the Astwood Bank 2nd teamer Pyatt, came out and showed us how to bat. Tyler bowled very well, removing the other opener cheaply, finishing with 1 for 16 off 4 including 2 maidens, as did George Hillman 4 overs for 13 runs. However a liking was taken to Bryn and me and at drinks they were in excess of 100. Which is the score that Pyatt retired on, with the match won. Ian picked up a wicket with a good catch by Tim down the leg side but the game ended in the 33rd over. It might have been a close game without Pyatt but heigh ho, we move on to Poppyfields next Sunday, again at home.
