Not really sure how to do this blog business. But here's my first attempt anyway.

Firstly, I'd like to thank everyone again on their kinds words on the website. I really appreciate it!

Tim - I'll try rediscover those missing tons ASAP!

Met with Centaurs legend Tony Clark last week at the HKCC as he is in town for a couple of weeks. Had a great dinner at Spinners talking about the history of the Centaurs and HK cricket and Tony gave me a copy of '75 not out' which is a book about Seventy-five Years of Civil Service Cricket in Hong Kong which he co-published along with Graham Fletcher. He also gave me a USB full of Taurs info/pics which I will be uploading onto the website shortly. Now looking forward to meet his co-author towards the end of the month.

Onto the game yesterday, welcome back to Rodders and Will. It was great to have you guys back. Rod was without a doubt our MotM with 3 catches behind the stumps and a entertaining 40 including a 6 over the massive Mission Road leg side boundary which he cleared by quite a fair bit. However it was probably the most ridiculous game of cricket I've ever played in. We failed to chase down a fairly achievable target against the LSW Jrs. That was fine but the game itself was not played to the spirit of the game by the opposition and the umpire. Several horrific LBW decisions and just complete rudeness by their captain plus some excessive over appealing. To top it all, I got a golden for the second time this season (another for the Optimists) inside edging my first delivery onto the stumps.

Got home just in time to watch the WC final and spent the next 7 hours by the TV! By the end, a very fitting end with India lifting the cup. Jayawardena played a blinder and Thisara Perera is definitely one to look out for in the future. I thought it was a brave decision for Dhoni to promote himself up the order as he hasn't been scoring any runs in the tournament. It proved to be a right one as it was definitely a world cup winning knock. Well deserved for SRT, what did he have to do to win a WC! His 6th campaign, over 450 ODI's, 18000+ runs, 48 ODI tons, player of the tournament in 2003, India's top run scorer in this WC and he's finally done it!

Finally, Happy Birthday to Nas for Monday!

That's all for now.
