The Nine Prevail!

Result: Won by 8 runs

A tactic occasionally bemoaned in the opposition was deployed, although not with pre-planning, successfully by Crabtree.  Andy was left two men short by late cry-offs.  As he was exhausted mentally and physically by the weight of his mobile he asked yours truly to captain on the pitch.

Simon (26 no) and Tim (45no) laid the foundations to the win. Tim rejoining the fray at the end of the innings with great success.  At one stage we threatened Crabtree’s highest score as we were 56-0 in the 6th over. However a middle order stutter was saved by Darren’s late onslaught (25no).  Somebody dipping his toe into the muddy waters of strop the year was Paul after yours truly refused to sacrifice his own wicket. I hope you apologised to Rob!

Verulum were always kept behind the run rate by all of our bowlers.  The captain was pleased that his tactic of keeping Simon until the end paid off this time.  In fact the only criticism I will accept is that I gave away too many sausages to the oppo...in the pub.
