One

Matt Prior to last Nick Knight, it’d been nearly two years since I’d last scored a run. In my only two outings to the crease since the start of 2017, one last year and one this, I had been dismissed second ball without scoring. They were the first two instances of me batting whilst wearing glasses. Yesterday however, progress was made… small victories! I scored a run, one run, one whole run! As was the case in my previous innings, I walked to the crease during the penultimate over but this time at least made it to the last. Having calmly pushed the ball back past the bowler to get off the mark, in the final over, I opted for expansiveness against the opposition’s ringer… and was promptly bowled! Had I just got forward in an orthodox fashion, then I could’ve tapped an easy leg side single. Still, it’s a run, I fielded well and we won, onto the next round… but not selected for tomorrow’s league match!

That’s right folks, I thought that just one run merited a whole article. You just wait until I make it into double figures, it has been known to happen you know!
