Finding a way
Posted in Domestic Cricket
Well where do I begin? This is my second blog entry and plenty has happened since I last scribed a few lines.
We visited Flinders Ranges for two days on what was essentially a course in leadership and to dig a little deeper into your understanding of yourself as a person and a cricketer.
It consisted of plenty of walking, a couple of nights under the stars and an outstanding BBQ cooked by Treggers.
It was an outstanding experience - sleeping out in the open in the outback is something quite special and will not be forgotten very easily.
However, the endless walking and the creepy crawlies may make it a one-off experience for me.
On our return from Flinders we stopped off at Jamestown where we helped coach local school children and played a Twenty20 with a few of the locals. Another very enjoyable experience and we were looked after incredibly well.
Back in Adelaide, we've been hard at work both on our fitness and our skills. Fitness testing has just come and gone and surprisingly it's starting to become slightly more enjoyable. I do realise that's fairly sadistic, but in the words of Shaun Seigert 'you've just got to find a way'.
On the field, my club Tea Tree Gully has been on fire. We've recorded two big wins in the one-day and T20 competition and recently won outright in our last two-dayer. I made some contributions during these, but not quite the big one I have been striving for.
However, in the first day of our most recent two-dayer that changed, when, with a smidgen of luck, I managed to get myself my maiden century for the Bulls. I was absolutely chuffed and extremely happy I could help us to a good first innings score of 320 for eight.
I'm sure we will look to build on that lead and then press for the win and more importantly the points to keep us climbing up the table.
Well, I think that is it for this entry. I hope everyone is well back home and really enjoying the cold as I'm hating the sun...
