Wedding Speech! - 1st Draft
RLB restored their pride in glorious weather on Sunday with a 4 wicket win over Denham. Your skipper won the toss and decided to field first knowing that for this game at least he could give the new ball to a bowler named Anderson. Denham's openers adopted a positive approach before Mark got their first XI skipper to edge one behind with the score on 25. Scotty found his rhythm and using the old Tom Cartwright trick of bowling in sets (or so he says), inticed their No3 to have a go giving Sunny the opportunity to show how he can catch a ball high over his head and provide the first champagne moment of the season. 37-2. Kamal and Sunny came on after 10 overs to do the hardest stint of the afternoon but were ingloriously let down by the rest of the team who managed to drop 9 catches between them. 96-2 at drinks but it could have been such a different story. Trevor came on in the 22nd over to change the pace and with Phil Joyce, first slowed the run rate, and then starting picking up the wickets.134-2 very quickly became 142-5 before further wickets fell as the innings closed at 177-8. Trevor finished with 3-22 and Phil 3-24. Fine bowling to get them out for under 200. Fine catching would have got them out for under 150.
I hear there were a few changes made before the final version.
