Man, it was wonderful... we left by 12. reached the play ground by 12:30 by bikes and cars. We were around 20 out of which 4 were enthusiastic girls. :)
It was bright hot day. Boys already started to practice catches and bowling.
Dinesh and others installed the wickets.
We took around 15 min to form 2 teams. Manoj and Rajesh took the initiative of becoming captains.
I was in the Fielding team and took the short midwicket positions.
Here am I
It was a 10 over match. I bowled 6th over and got a wicket. Other team was cheating in counting the runs :).. shame shame.. I remember how we used to fight if someone tries to manipulate the numbers. The term for manipulating number was 'Dubba'.
We took 7 wickets. I caught one down. By the end of 10th over they had scored 79. Good score right.. err.. good Dubba
Here is the ground and pitch
Our game started. Phani alias Funny started very good innings. He scored well. around 10 and got out in 2nd over. It was 16. We were playing good game.
As we planned such that everyone has to bat.. some guys had to leave the crease even before they getting out. One of such victims was I. I went 5 down. First ball full toss hit to long off. It was four. heeeeyyyy!!!! Over ended. Had to change the strike. It was last ball of the over. Took 2 runs. So that I can play next over. Manoj was the bowler. Very good bowler. Could not take the first ball. He was perfectly bowling just in front of my feet. I decided to go for another full toss. I took it.. It was another four on the midwicket.. Captain Rajesh called me back.. Alas... my innings ended with 8 runs..
It was last over. We needed 5 runs to win the match. Ramesh and Machireddy were playing. Ramesh was on striking position. Took a run. Manoj was the bowler. Bowled wonderfully. Machi could not touch even a single ball. Stats was 2 balls, and 4 runs to win. Machi came fwd and swept the ball for a four. We WON ... Hurryey..
Then we came back to office. We were all hungry like pigs.. Pizzas from Pizza hut were waiting for us. All had pizzas and back to pavilion .. err I mean workplaces..
