March 19, 2016 Indoor Game Report

Match report Taverners vs Golden Boys

So a big shake up to the Taverners was needed (after 0-6 start) . So new Skipper David , cut the Dead Weight
And brought in the heavy hitters . Karran , Keith ,  with Chris , David , Sid and Ali . Losing the toss again Taverners once again battered first . Solid batting by everyone with partnerships of 65 , 49 and 65 put a massive total of 179 on the board . The skipper not wanting to take the foot of the throat opened the bowling with Keith and Karran . This produced the desired wickets needed for victory . There first pair scored a miserable 56 . With Karran and James having plenty of overs left the other team didn’t stand a chance . Notable fielding David ducking and jumping to get out he way of the ball . Keith taking 2 wickets in an over . Only 14 wides .They scored 126 .  Then off to the bar to celebrate and talk about the great victory and how useless the rest of the Taverners have been .

To add to Sid’s report, there was a genuine look of bewilderment on the
umpire’s (Kallu) face when opening strike bowler KJ sauntered (more like a
slow stroll) in to deliver his first ball of the first over, causing him
(the umpire) to call dead ball and started laughing.   I guess we should
have updated the umpire as to our indoor training regime.
