    I retired 2 seasons ago but have been talked into a comeback.

    Might last the season, might only last till the week before we start, will certainly be interesting :)

    Gonna be a huge year by the sounds of it

    Just talking to my mate who is now selector, and for 2nds this week we have 3 genuine 2nd grade players and no skipper. Looks like I will be inheriting the C for a few weeks when I get back

    Better work bloody hard with the stick this season, will need to get 450+ runs and 35+ wickets i think

    The signs are there that it may be a long year

    We had a decent enough side in the end, certainly more talented than the mob we played, but **** the bed

    I won the toss, sent them in. I opened up along with a young fella who played 1sts last weekend. They had 1 good batsmen, we dropped him 5 times, he made 65. Another bloke came in, played a big shot every ball, couldn't middle one of them, and had the great knack of dropping the ball between fielders and made 38. That got them to 182 in the end, we got 4 run outs and I took 3/38 from my 10

    We started off well enough, then we proceeded to get ourselves out. 115 was the end result, 1 opener made 40. I was caught at short cover for 1, wasn't attacking or defending it, dumb.

    We had 2 batsmen in our side up to Prems level, I lose both of them this weekend so our batting will be pretty light

    Haha, I got out exactly the same way. Annoying.

    Poor field placements.

    Well after the scratchiest 6 runs of my life, on a syntho against a pretty ordinary side I just got the call up to rep for the District. fcuken embarrassing really, considering one dude got 114* and couldn't get a look in. Feel pretty bad tbh, and training tomorrow should be interesting.

    Now I know how Chris Bailey must feel.

    Cheeky bastard !! haha. No matter where I put the fielders, this guy had the knack of not middling it and dropping it down in front of them. Was frustrating by the end of it

    Good luck with the rep stuff

    Had a ****ing belter of a day today, bloody stoked, off the mark as a skipper

    We were sent in, and were 47-6 and I was close to giving it away. Me and another blokes batted about 20-25 overs maybe and put on 70-80. I got 31 before being given out LBW

    They started really, really slow and kept us in the hunt nicely, being 17/0 off 11 overs. At drinks they were 66/3 from 25 and then we fired up and knocked them off. I came back for my 2nd spell and it all worked perfectly and ended up with 10-5-9-4 and we knocked them over for 84
