Hadleigh away

An agonising 6 run defeat for the chaps yesterday at the picturesque Hadleigh cricket ground in Suffolk. 

Chasing 7/240 we just came up short with 234, though I was grateful to bat for nearly all of our 50 overs. 

It's always great to have a long innings, though of course this does open up the possibility of being chirped for several hours continuously, and this is particularly the case if you're the only player on either side with long hair ("Let's get Russell Brand out, send him back to Toni & Guy" etc. - Russell Brand!...really?!). Ha.

In reality, that sort of stuff never bothers me; it's when the opposition starts dissecting your dodgy batting technique that you need to start worrying!

Fifth and final Ashes Test starts this week.
