Our first Sunday game of the season did not turn out the way we wanted it to. On a cracker of a day we won the toss and decided to have a bat on a road at the home of cricket the KCC!
With a lighting quick outfield and a belter of a deck a par score was going to be around 240 at the least, with some good batting by Daniel Fullgrabe a new addition to the Dels, the K Dawg as he likes to be known and a fantastic ton by Woody we set a very competitive total of 265. The team batted well to get to this total as Vagabonds were bowling good channels however with the tempo being lifted from mid innings to the end a very competitive total of 261 was set.
We started off with Immy making in roads at the top of the order and Chris Macnulty taking his first wicket for the Dels and we had them reeling at 4 for 75. Unfortunately with some dropped catches and some wayward bowling the Vagabonds started to get away from us even though wickets were falling at regular intervals. With a couple of their batsmen teeing off late in the game and a big ton from one of their top order the Vagabonds passed our total 9 down with 2 overs to go.
Even though we lost our first game of the season some good things could be taken from the game and once we clear the rust from all our systems, we will be in with a great chance to push for the title.
