Oddville Cricket Match

Post by Tenacious B »

steve and i are organising a full day cricket match at panorama primary.

we'd like to make it sometime this december, but if enough people can make it in the new year we might make it.

it will be at panorama primary school (hopefully - details are being worked out) and will be a full day/50 overs a side match. they have an astro turf and a little boma where we can have a braai.

the boundary markers will be cooler boxes stacked with booze, so you can imagine that this is just for the hell of it. teams will be allocated randomly.

if you want to take part, post in this thread. we already have about 10 players who are ready and willing, so we need another 12 or so. also put down what kind of cricket skills you might possess, as well as preferred fielding positions.

ok tight. obligatory smiley: :bubchomp:

So up for this!

As for skills - I have very few, but I can fake it ...

I bowl lollipop offspinners, with the occasional realy easily read and very badly placed doosra, and a wonderfully disguised straight ball (mainly because it was supposed to spin - even suprises me)

I bat terribly, and generally get out five or six times before I can actually put the willow to the leather - so you can probably prescore me at 0 to 5 ...

Oh, and for fielding - anywhere where I don't need to catch the ball.

If you need a few players I can easily bring a few - I know a pacey bugger, and a class batsman ...

I am so in! New Year Please! I bowl pretty good medium pacers (or at least did a few years ago) and am good for about 10 runs. Field anywhere where my feeble arm can get it in to the wickey without making it bounce a few times.

excellent guys. things are looking good for the new year, mid january.

so that's 14, with the possibility of others.

i'll also chat to etienne and guy - i remember etienne being a pretty handy wickey and batsman, and guy could bowl a nice medium pace iirc.

Isn't it funny how almost every non-pro (or even club) cricketer is an all-rounder? I know I am - but that's just cause I'm equally kak at everything.

We will end up with 8 bowlers on a team, a keeper, and two opening bats.

Can't we do this sooner? Need to play. I play sometimes in the nets, but that's nothing compared to time in the middle. I haven't played against a full 11 since school.

it's a case of organising for when everyone can make it.

if you're that keen, we might be able to organise a 13 man match sooner. 2 batsmen in, 11 out to field?

@ Matt: Sounds like a plan. Just let me know. I have generally quite full weekends - but I can always make a plan.

Count me in for the new year. I would like to field near the beer please. Also I may be able to bowl a little and I bat really well down the order. Preferably so far down the order that I don't bat at all.
Where are we getting the equipment from? I imagine enough people have pads and bats and gloves and stuff correct?

Sounds good - I'm looking forward to being clubbed out of the park on many occasions.

How does the 13-man match work? I'm assuming you're playing for personal glory. In which case: Final score = Runs Scored - Runs conceeded + Wickets * x?

Aw, who cares - I just want to play cricket.

Quick Question: Equipment. Who has what? I've got pads etc, I only need a hard hat. With those bouncers you guys are going to bowl at me I need a lot of protection ...

I'm willing to lend out my pads, and my gloves - but you need inners, and they're for a lefty, and that can be tough for a right hander (ask Aric and his missing thumb nail - took that off with a rising inswinger that beat him all ends up - but I was younger then). My bat is also not a masterpiece, and so can be used by anyone.

We will also need one or two match balls? Any offers?

to be honest, i didn't think of any kind of formula for a "winner" - more an excuse to drink and play cricket. if anything, we can use the action cricket "contribution" formula of runs Scored - runs conceded.

edit: we also have most of the equipment necessary - definitely bats, and a couple of sets of pads/gloves. all we'll need to do is buy a matchball, and maybe get hold of some wickey gloves.

Oh fuck - wickey gloves ... forgot about those.

Match balls run to R200. I work near Palmer Sports - but I'm assuming that Makro will be cheaper. Just don't buy those fucking GM "Match" balls - the ones where they varnish the seam. My fuck those go shite in about 5 overs ... trust me - I had about three of them - it was not simply a once off - they truly suck.

To finish off - can I just say thanks a bundle to Matt for organising. Hip hip hooray! I love cricket - what other sport can someone the size and shape of Shane Warne participate and still be at the top of his game?

Okay, apart from chess. And snooker. And Tenpin Bowling. And Lawn Bowls. And fishing. And hunting ....

Who are the remaining 9 players in your 13 man group, Matt? I hope you're not secretly laughing as you unleash a storm of pace, bounce and torrid batting ...

there's steve, a useful spinner and excellent batsman, chris, who bowls a fast medium and can wickey, andrew 1, a fast bowler and excellent opener, andrew 2, another fast bowler who i remember being able to bat, ryan, a medium-pacer from the middle order who can also wickey, ross, a very useful leg spinner, gary, a kemp-style slogger ( ;) ), and two more that i know nothing about.

all in all, they're pretty good players. no one is going to be bowling head-height bouncers, but you'll have to work for your runs. from the batting perspective, most of the guys i'm bringing can fairly knock a ball around.
