I know- all that sport-as-analogy-for-life stuff is so passe, but sometimes it is good to come up against your own fragility.
So here we go- some pictures of me playing in a single wicket competition.
It works like this- you draw names, and then bowl/face two overs each against your opponent. I drew Brendan, who was merry with ale in the mid day sun, so I had a good chance- even though he can play. I bowled first- and in two overs, despite smashing a few sixes, he was out three times. Your final score is divided by the amount of times you are out, and so I needed a mere 4.5 runs.
I did not get them.
