Our second awful start in as many weeks, this time with the bat, but just as hard to come back from. We lost the toss and were put in on the most bowl-first track we’ve encountered for a long time. The pitch claimed 17 wickets in the day while yielding just 133 runs, an average of 7.82 runs per wicket. Not exactly a batting paradise. It was overcast and the ball swung all day. The pitch was springy, the ball stopping and popping, so drives either took the edge or spooned in the air. We were 21-4 after 12 overs. Hacon was run out – a situation with which he was less than delighted – everyone else was caught. 66 is not a total you’d ever be keen to defend, but on that pitch we were always in it. Hakey bowled with aggression and uprooted a few stumps, Henry with control and sharp spin. They were a familiar 21-4 after 10 overs. At 53-5 we had a double wicket maiden to the get them 7 down and got excited again, but their captain was still in at the other end and pounced on anything loose, and the measly 67 came up all too quickly. Another dozen runs, who knows. If we’d won the toss, who knows. A counter intuitively enjoyable game, which despite the low score we never felt out of, on the kind of pitch any bowler would happily roll up and carry around with them, but none of us are keen to bat on again any time soon.
