Was leaving it as a set up and seeing how long it took for someone to respond. My response of course wolud be I take that as a No.

But seriously do we have a cricket ball?

Yes - I have an unused Match Ball, 4 piece Platypus. Fucking expensive, so say thank you very very nicely ...

I also have an unused Kooka practice ball, a barely used kooka practice, and a barely used dual colour match ball.

That should do us ... ;)

I'm more concerned over the rest of the equipment - how many sets of pads do we have? bats - that others are willing to lend out? wicky gloves?

I'm going to ask the groundsman to roll the pitch and put in stumps for us - he was going to last time but didn't - hopefully we'll have stumps in this time around. Nice of him to do so - I'll bring him a case of beer for his trouble ...

I will be borrowing my brothers stuff I hope so I should be sorted. I am happy to lend it to anyone who bats after me. I'm gonna score a century so they might be a bit sweaty.

I've just spoken with the groundsman - the pitch is soaking. He says we need no rain tomorrow and the rest of this afternoon before it will be playable.

So start your sun-dances people.

If it is soaking - but the day is hot, do we play?

Well I've asked Matt to check with that other school again (the original venue) and he's also going to ask Steve to check with Randburg who have a 'free pitch'. They may have covered them during the downpours the past few days.

Once we know if we have other options - I'll ask the groundsman at Rosebank if they can cover the pitch tonight, and roll it tomorrow. That may dry it up - the outfield may be a bit long and untidy, but damn it we're not professional ...

I can tell you that if the pitch is waterlogged there is no point playing on it. It will fuck up the pitch beyond repair and it won't be fun playnig on it. Come on SUN!!!

It actually has stopped raining here. It is still overcast though. It got a bit brighter and then darker but no break in the cloud cover as yet. WE need a scorcher tomorrow otherwise chances are not good....

Hate to say this : rain predicted for this afternoon and the whole weekend.

Still - what do they know, the weatherman is always suspiciously two days behind. Fingers crossed!

Firstly I don't have pads, it turns out my brother sold them last year:-(
Secondly if it's hot today then try to get the groundsman to put covers on the pitch for this evening. We may get some sort of game tomorrow then.

Unfortunately i think the pitch needs to be dry before the covers go on otherwise it sweats and that isn't good. Hopefully we get enough sun today to dry it out completely and then the rain starts on sunday.

What are we going to do about this anyway? Are we all just going to hope for the best and pitch up or should we send a representative who then confirms via sms or something that we can play? We could have one of those cell phone relays where i get an sms then send it to one person who sensdhs it to the next and so on. How many people have confirmed? I hope this happens i am all excited!!!

true - I'm going to ask the guy to roll it this afternoon if the sun holds up.

As for how we are handling it - If it rains tonight, or if the pitch is unsuitable, but the weather is okay tomorrow morning - we can all just pitch anyway for a nets session - it aint the middle, but it will do.

If it pours tomorrow morning, then I'm not sure - we can hope for a break in the weather and hang around until then - drinking beer and playing poker ...

I've seen the pitch and it is green. I've seen less grass in some outfields
I've been to. The outfield has beds of clover that look fairly comfortable, and grass that will cover your shoes.

That siad - it is damp still, but looking okay. Since the field is so small, long grass may be a bonus - not every ball will go for four; and if the pitch is rolled it may be dry and hard enough to play on. I'll get hold of Frank this afternoon and ask him to roll it for us.

As to Ceek's question - yes there is a thatched thingy to stand under if it pours.

As for pads - don't worry too much - that could be lent out easily enough.

So pull out, the rain will stop and then decide to play at the last minute tomorrow.

But you have to believe this yourself if you want to convince the Cricket Gods.
