A better looking squad this week now the football season is over and done with. Looks like we've got some batting including the formidable Adam 'Village' Green and the very steady and in form Ryan Davies who also bowls exceptionally well. Not everyone at this stage (Late Friday night) had ticked to confirm their availability, but there's a bunch of reserves, so it looks like we should take to the field with 11 this week instead of last weeks 8.
The wicket runs north to south and the prevailing wind will be coming from the direction of the Pavilion.
The weather looks promising, it's rained today (Friday) quite heavily, but with the over-night breeze increasing fine weather, it should be okay by the time he match gets underway. I've previously bowled from the Garon's end as the boundary is longer, what I do remember is that I've got aggressive batsmen out with a top-spinner on this wicket with a bloke (Joe) fielding at deep mid-on. I've leaked runs with poor balls on the leg-side and I seem to recall this was a favoured shot of most of the bloke in this team - targeting the short boundary down to the pavilion.
More to come over the coming week as I update the blog.
