...off 17 balls incl. 3 fours... that's all I can say for now, looking at the scorecard...
Middlesex v Derbyshire (CB40)
Middlesex won because the match was neither on TV nor was I listening to the radio. That is a dilemma for a supporter. To follow or not to follow, that's the question. Will they win all three competitions next year if I quit rooting for them in public? No wait a minute. It's because Toby wasn't playing. But quitting on bowling him isn't an option either. So I guess we'll have to get arranged with that hard bench in the basement of the table. Sorry guys.
I see that Newman was badly in the runs. I see that Owais had a good day. I see that Tom Smith bowled like the total man. The last time that he delivered a performance like this must have been in the FPT20, I remember a particular match with fantastic Smithfigures. I also see that Murts and Finny were fine, very fine. And Owais took his obligatory trundle wicket. Dexter didn't even have to bat, I am sure he would have made a 50. And Straussy got wagged for 7!!! What a dear and nice match it must have been... *sigh* Just what I would have needed after this week of cricket wreckage.
Instead I decided to book a bed at the Heartbreak Hotel Hampshire...
