First session in the paddock

Before the bowling sessions described below, Joe and I had a bit of practice with some throw downs. I was getting Joe to hit the ball on the off-side hitting cover-drives. It went quite well - in fact he was a lot better than I was!
The wicket in the paddock at the minute is still fairly wet, not wet enough to roll that well, but fairly okay. For the moment we're leaving the grass quite long when we cut it and I'm trying to allow for the repairs to grow on the wicket and in an area behind the stumps.
