Against a younger less experienced team Fiskerton batted first.
With a better attitude to running the score could have been that much higher and whilst this aspect of the game still needs work once settled the batsmen did start to press runs with a much improved attitude to taking the first run and looking for 2 or more.
Jonno faced one of those balls that did something and was unfortunate.
James felt hard done by with an LBW but as commented by the umpire at square leg, best thing is not to allow the ball to strike the body.
Things settled and the rest put on runs steadily and the total climbed.
The captain feared that the opposition might have some batting and Dan opened the bowling to take 3 wickets in the one over despite some dodgy no ball decisions.
After the first over some of our other bowlers were given the ball including a very creditable 3 overs from Liam Pritchett and the high light of the evening being George's introduction into the Fiskerton bowling attack leaving him with figures of 0.1-1-0-1.
Those were the highlights, the low points being how some reacted to the weaker opposition when wickets were being taken.
However with encouragement especially led by James Stevenson this settled, as it should do.
It's hard not to celebrate but respect for the opponent should always be kept, especially if fielding first just in case the batsmen cheered out is the opposition's fast bowler - you never know when you might be facing the next Stuart Broad or Dale Steyn.
A better performance – let’s take it into the next game
