Ben and Joe's first match approaches

Ben and Joe have their first match scheduled for this coming Sunday. Their team Basildon & Pitsea CC U 11's V Wickford CCU11's. The match is due to be played at Memorial Park, Rettendon View, Wickford SS11 8HU, which isn't a venue I've been to before. Let's just hope the weather holds out. With the match only a few days away we went over the paddock with 37 balls and all had a bowl to see who could hit the stumps 20 times first. Both Ben and Joe did well after a few loose balls. It looks like Joe's become a Googly bowler, but when he rotates properly and bring his leg up and over he produces the odd Leg Break. Both of them were sending balls down the Leg-side a bit too frequently, so that's a developmental point and something we'll work on over the coming days. But they both seemed to enjoy the full-on bowling experience of just bowling at the stumps with no batsman.
