May 24, 2006 League vs Vallance Lost by 72 runs

Full scorecard | averages | back to fixtures  

Wet wet wet

The game opened in a shower and ended in a downpour. In between it spat, drizzled and grew ever darker.

We weren't the only ones braving one of the wettest May evenings on record - both the other games in the park also played on, but our game lasted longer and petered out in storm conditions.

Vallance, who batted first, had relatively dry conditions, and knocked up 140-6. By the time we were batting, the rain was ever present before skipper Philip Barrass decided last man Jim Ward was Too Wet Too Bat and conceded the game 72 runs short.

It was so wet the scorebook dissolved into a mush. The figures below are a reconstruction from the sodden remains.

The Fallopians played one man short as the selector (Mr Barrass) had chosen James Watt but omitted to tell him...
