Maddy at one end Troughton at the other..... If Maddy doesn't get you then Troughton will......

Not sure if thats the catch phrase I was expecting for 2007 ...... although it looks good for T20 and Pro 40 glory

Ahhh. Never thought about looking on eBay! Perhaps I should search for a shop/user on said site called "PoveyPromotions" and start bidding?

What happened to the other 97 runs or am i just reading this wrong?

Very sad about Bob Woolmer. RIP - you'll always be a true Bear legend

The nearer the new season the quiter we get....

Anyway......


In the second match of their pre -season tour in Grenada the Bears completed another convincing victory against Grenada.
Due to a rain break the match was shortened to 44 overs per side. The Bears won the toss and elected to bat first. The Bears finished on 249-3 with Darren Maddy top scoring with 70, backed up by Tim Ambrose who was 64 not out and Jim Troughton who was 47 not out.

Grenada were 169 all out in reply with Tim Groenewald taking 3-21, Anyon 2-27, Giles 2-16 and Streak, Shantry and Trott taking one wicket each.

Heath Streak has been pleased with the matches so far, “It is great to get some competitive matches under our belts so close to the season. These two weeks have enabled us to train and play in the warm climate which will be crucial in our preparations to start the season well against Lancashire.”

How likely is Shantry to play a larger role for you this season?

Unlikely unless a few injuries Id have thought. Probably at the back of the queue of his contempories and a couple of young players coming through may pass him. Hope he gets a chance because hes a good bloke but he bowled more overs than anyone at the club last year and still didn't break through.

Poonia got his 5th duck in his last nine innings, which also include a score of one and a score of two, for Scotland today. Must be somne sort of record.

Oh dear !

and poor old Scotland lost heavily to Holland. From radio commentary Dougie was bowling at a very medium < 70 mph - which doesn't boad too well for his final season.

Ducks for both Poonia (yes Kim - another one) and Brown !

Yep, four overs of medium pace nonsense from Lord Dougie (again) yesterday, which yielded 20 runs. Which, when you compare to his other World Cup figures is rather economical!!

Plus the Bob Woolmer enquiry is just getting more and more macabre.
