Report 08/06 R & W 1 – Bloemendaal 1 240 v 6- 113 a.o.
Here is the late report of the match against our neighbors R & W.
After a week with numerous mails and calls, we managed to get a team of 10 players + 1 fielder.
The Skipper lost the toss, and we were send to field.
The bowling of the whole team was nice; line and length through out the whole innings of R & W.
R & W was struggling to get some runs, but we didn’t succeed to get them out.
Several bats men of R & W were very lucky, because their nicks en miss hits didn’t lead to their dismissal.
3 Catches were dropped and the fielding was very hard on the bumpy field.
One thing can be said of the innings of R &W : they showed determination not to get out.
They didn’t go for the big hits but tried to get bat on the ball and from there score some runs.
Untill over 35 the innings of R & W was contained by Bloemendaal.
After this over the momentum went to R & W.
They got their singles and with a boundary each over, and so they got away.
Also our team spirit was a little bit fading because R & W escaped our grasp
Guys; with a 50 over match these things do happen, just stay focused and support each other during a whole innings and then you leave the field as a team
At the end of their innings they ended on 240 runs witch is a good score on this field, but with good batting, not impossible to make.
We can be short about the innings of Bloemendaal.
It was Short and unsuccessful .
We let ourselves down by playing big shots as if we played a thirty over match.
Although the Bowling of R & W was up to standard, we should never ended our day in such a matter.
I suggest that we make a fine pot ( Just for the fun of it ) and each batsman who gets out within 24 balls has to pay a hefty fine € 5,-
Maybe in this manner we will show more determination to get a good innings.
I’m lookoing forward to a new match with you guys because although we lost, it’s a pleasure to play with you.
Keep the spirit up, and improve the batting by keeping the crease occupied by playing shots with more control ( closer to the body).
The old man (In this case Bart Schotte)
