Nice of our captain to set off on a suicidal run then give up running half way down the pitch and be run out. Sets a fine example to the rest of the team. As did our expensive overseas player with the awful shot with which he got himself out. The haymakers played against spin by Taylor, Douthwaite and Smith would put a local club player to shame and certainly don't flatter a professional player. Is no-one counselling these players or setting out a plan before they take to the field?
Having got that off my chest, I thought Lloyd played a superb innings, Salter gave him intelligent support and then stepped up when Lloyd was out. Selman did enough to prove he should have been playing all along. Walker and Salter were the pick of the bowlers.
Home game Bank holiday Monday and the weather set fair- there should be a bumper crowd but how many will bother to go I wonder?
