We're Going To The Grand Final!

The mighty Greystanes B8 Cricket Team are through to the Grand Final after a tough semi final win.

Greystanes won the toss and batted and yours truly buggered up big time to be the first one out for just 5. However the team recovered (whilst I stewed on the side line) and we batted all day for 160 with the last wicket falling on the last ball of the day.

We were content with that given we're not a great batting side and with a very good bowling line up, we were confident.

Today, on Day 2, we got their skipper and best bat out cheaply caught at mid-off and then we kept the pressure on with some tight bowling. The catches though werent sticking (and I dropped one at first slip to compound my personally shitty game) but we never lost our heads and kept positive.

The run rate required for Guildford was climbing and soon enough they had to force some shots and the wickets started to flow.

Soon, we had them on the run and eventually bowled them out for just 92!

Considering this was the best batting team in the comp, we were very happy with that!

Due to Easter, we need to wait a fortnight for the Grand Final which will once again be at Roberta St Park Greystanes.
