A fun social day of cricket with teams of 6 playing 3 matches of 5 overs a side. The best part was the opportunity to play with Torren, Mason and Clive; three generations in one team, along with Josh and Garry Jedretich.
We played in Division 2, mostly kids and Dads. Seniors and U18s were playing in Division 1.
It was cool and there were a few showers during the day, so some games were interrupted, but mostly it was ok.
Game 1, win - I made about 12 runs at #3, before being run out from a direct hit chasing a quick single. I bowled some leg spin and clean bowled one of the Dads from the other team who was looking quite dangerous.
Game 2, win - my contribution with the bat was a crowd catch in the previous game giving me 5 bonus runs. I had to run about 20m to my right to take the catch. I didn't bat, but it was fun to watch Torren and Dad open the batting together. I bowled a nice over for just 1 run (when they needed to score about 10 an over), and also took a catch running in from cover.
Game 3, win - I hit a 4 to square leg off my first ball. I made 18 no off about 10 balls before retiring. I then dismissed their best batsmen caught behind.
The rain set in for the final, so we ended up winning the Division 2 World Cup with 3 wins from 3 games. Great fun and we even came home with a huge trophy!
