We lost tonight not by scoring less with the bat but by gifting more with the ball once more.
It's a recurring theme, where suggestions of removing 10% of speed to produce 50% more accuracy seem to go unheeded at the nets (even if people bother to practice when they turn up) and produce results like tonight.
Yet again we were the second highest scorer for our opposition (26 as extras).
I feel most sorry for the Turners, Orgills, Aylwoods Pearsons and others who turn up and try their hardest in the field but don't get a bat or bowl - which believe me will change.
It seems unfair to say these things of youngsters but some soon will be working or being left to their own devices to study or produce results.
It was nice to see Jonno throw off his gremlins from his last 2 innings to accompany Dan and then Harry and produce a nice controlled and expressive knock and for Harry to push on and score his highest this year. Well done Harry with bat and ball and a deserved Man of the Match.
It's the old story, more application will produce easier results.
It's not a hard game, but requires discipline in practice and game time to get results.
Next time please guys.
