It didn’t matter in the end,as we Won by 41 points.

Opening stand between Finch and Warner made the difference in the end.Well done fellas! =D> =D> =D>
The difference in the end was the Pakis fielding! Absolutely atrocious. Dropped catches and midfields that would be common place at beach cricket while having a can of beer in one hand and a sanga in the other

Yes,that too.

They would have better off hiring old Butterteeth,the NCBCA wonderdog.

Even if the Cricket mad mutt spilt many on the sand(which got him his reputation),he would have whipped that ball into the wicketkeepe,quicksmart.Albeit a little soggier. :lol:

I thought of old Butterteeth yesterday and wondered if Paul Rigby’s tribute to him and the North Cottesloe Beach Cricket Association,still adorned the walls of the Bars of the OBH!

4 Wins 1 Loss before we take on the Poms Friday Night.

Whoever’s playing the Friday Night AFL Fixture,good luck getting any attention.

Well done last night Aussies,particularly Finch,Smith,Maxie and Starc.

Missed most of Maxie’s Innings Rock,as the office had closed and I had to go home.But he had to hold up an end,whilst wickets were falling around him and got the Final score to 334 in the end.

Pretty damn good. Typical Maxwell innings - clean hitting, picking vacant spots around the ground. I think he scored his runs off 25 balls 👍🏼
