Great win for the Ultra Casuals in friendly last night coming back from 2-0 down at half time to win 3-2 against Arthritic Bilbao who are in the division above us. Nice work!
Tonight the cricket team entered a brand new 20/20 league. Ev reports thus:
This was our first game in the midweek 20/20 league which consists of teams entirely unknown to the Cowboys. So, on a huge Bristol West Indies ground, armed with a strong bowling line up and a rash assumption that the opposition standard may not be too high, this skipper chose to bat first, reasoning we’d be more likely to all get a game.
After 20 overs this seemed quite a clever gambit. Cowboys scored 165 for 6 with Bolts (41), Justin (35), and especially Rob T2 with a super fast 48 not out, all enjoying the fairly friendly bowling and excellent batting facilities.
So after a bit of back patting Cowboys took to the field feeling confident.
18 and a half overs later we trudged back. We had not taken a single wicket, having been hit all over the park and run ragged by their very classy openers (one of which was the brother of Ski Simson, former Cowboy opening bat and footballer).
Cowboys lost by 10 wickets.
