Well with one game to go in the season I officially have the bowling trophy wrapped up, taken around 20 wickets for the season so far. Our team is going to narrowly miss out on finals which is a disappointment but tbh we probably don't deserve to be there anyway. Had a good win on the weekend against Port Adelaide but we needed to beat them outright to have any shot at finals.
My 3rd game of the season this evening (just playing T20 evening games for now)... results so far, loss, win, tie (tonight). I've apparently hung the keeping gloves up so far this season as I've been needed to turn the arm (and wrist), apparently my stats make me an allrounder, 74 with the bat in 3 innings (opening) [ave=24.7] and 2/47 with the ball [ave=23.5] (I'm not convinced I should have been bowling the death overs, but tonight's 17th and 19th went for 17 between them, which I guess isn't too bad).
I unfortunately cant play outdoor cricket easily since I live in Saudi Arabia, and while the game is popular here, all my cricket playing friends live in the Pakistani area which is far from my house. In my neighbourhood only mostly Arabs live so they play football. I have played only a few times, but when I was in school I used to play a lot, now I'm searching for colleges and will probably start college in January or February
I've got my first indoor cricket (UK indoor is really quite different from Aus) match for 15 years tomorrow.
Turns out it was right up my street that... was great fun, I kept really well and was the only member of our team to hit the forced retirement score... only to come back an over later... was off just long enough to get my breathe back.
