It's Amazing What Failure Can Do For You
Two new games, two new bruises.

The games are tightly contested, mentally tough, emotionally exhausting and an absolute comedy of errors. In short, it's like watching Pakistan vs. Bangladesh. I even try to eat the odd action cricket ball. Guess that makes me like Shahid Afridi.
In reality I'm a meat shield, giblet shield, bone shield, molar shield. Whatever my team needs, I'm there.
At least we are undefeated in the league of blind kids and underage girls.
Personal best of 3/11 & 22 for +11. It just keeps getting better and better the weaker our opponents are. I even caught the easiest catch ever caught in the history of cricket, ever.
We still managed to nearly lose it, but there were two glorious sixes in the final over that saved us from an inglorious defeat.
You could see the defeat in the eyes of our opponents. It looked like terrified, pre-pubescent angst.
