A humbling defeat

I'm out on account of you

Time’s Up, The Buzzcocks

Twenty-two men in tight-fitting polyester took to the field. A home game against old foes Ballinger.

Captain Yolland showed great faith in his (mostly) youthful side and chose to bat first. Despite a fighting 75 from newcomer Toby Lane and useful runs from Morton (24) and Hungin S (16), the Javs struggled to 145 all out from 34 overs.

Controversy came in the form of the dismissal of Matthews E, given out LBW on the verge of half-century. Was it pad first then bat, or vice versa? The book, and history, read ‘LBW, 0’. Time’s up.

The much-vaunted Ballinger line-up eased their way to a winning total off 29 overs. Only 2 wickets fell, one each to Hungin S and Codling.

Defeat by 8 wickets.

Questions:

Is there room in the squad for two Tobys?

Will Simon and Eddie ever speak to each other again?

What is wrong with cotton?
