Tonights game has bitten the dust due to sheer volume of rain in the last few days. As I type the sky is blue but the pitches are sodden.

Another one bites the dust

Another game gets called off tonight following the postponement of both games last week.  At least we managed to get a knockabout friendly done last week – I’ll put the scorecard up for that at some point but the gist of it was we started great with the ball, let a partnership develop so they got a defendable score, we batted well enough till the middle order got stuck, a flood of ducks followed and then ended up short after needing 28 from the final two overs.

Will we get a game?

First game in the second half of the season due to take place against the 25th Scimitar Cavaliers was rained off.  There’s a game tonight against Top Cats which should be a good game if it goes ahead.  The clouds ahead seem unable to make up their mind at the moment.
