3rd XI - Still in Delayed Gratification Mode

Today's loss is tomorrow's gain... still frustrating though!

Saying we were a young side against a much more mature and experienced team is sounding like a broken record. But then you could look at it from the club's point of view as saving up for a Ferrari, because the juniors continue to show such promise and are gaining incredible experience they might not otherwise get.

Batting first, Adam Din and Sam English opened well on a very difficult damp and bouncing wicket which put pay to some great batting by Adam at 23. Henry Simmonds fell quickly after being caught from a pop up ball but Sam kept it steady and when Andrew Price came in at 4, they started ramping up some numbers. (38 and 35 respectively) Harvey Machin put in a fast and furious 28 before getting caught. My personal performance of the day was Callum Ardron, who nailed one of the best cover drive boundaries I have seen in a long time and got 19. Henry Nicholls would probably have followed his example if we'd had more overs. Under the circumstances, 170 wasn't a bad team effort.

Sadly it was downhill from there in spite of a fabulous tea courtesy of Mrs Gaskin and the opener started off with a boundary and just kept on going until Henry Simmonds bowling from the right end in his second spell stopped him at 90 with a fine catch from Sam English. The number two also stayed the full 22 overs of their innings and ended not out at 57. Another Henry Simmonds and Sam English double wasn't enough to prevent them from hitting the target with ease. Adam Din bowled excellently with the best economy on the day and Will Price and Harvey Machin had some close calls too.

Maybe next time. It does feel like we're getting closer.
