Pirbright left thunderstruck

But Mother Nature rains supreme...

Despite a week in which it finally looked like the summer had arrived, a large cloud parked itself over Pirbright which saw the Waverley players arrive in a rain shower that never really went away. Andy Minshaw ("the Mincer"), James Wright ("Jim Jam"), Oli Jones ("the Funkmaster"), Simon Brewer ("KV"), Russ Golding ("Raoul"), Jamie Harris ("DJ Teabag"), Adrian Day ("Mog"), Peter Brewer ("Mr B"), Adam Carmichael ("AC") and David Stockwell ("Stockrates") were looking to bounce back from Waverley's first defeat of the season the previous day.

On winning the toss KV elected to field first and grumpy quicks Teabag and Mog set about dismantling the Pirbright top order. While Teabag took care of the run rate, Mog took care of the business as he helped himself to four wickets (all of which were well caught behind by the Mincer). Teabag bowled well without reward and with the top order ripped out, AC came into the attack and soon got his name on the board with a good catch from Jim Jam at deep mid-off. Mr B was introduced at the other end and also got in amongst the wickets with an LBW. By this stage the rain had become fairly persistent and when drinks were called the players were forced off the pitch by a particularly heavy shower. The rain moved on after a half hour delay and after the resumption the wickets kept tumbling. First there was a run out off of Mr B's bowling (courtesy of Stockrates) after some fatal hesitation between the wickets. Mr B then picked up his second wicket when he knocked back leg stump. The economical AC was replaced by Stockrates who soon helped himself to the ninth wicket, also shattering the stumps. The final wicket came courtesy of Raoul, who bowled the home skipper all ends up to leave Waverley chasing a modest 96 to win.

There was an excellent spread at tea which went down a treat (apart from one particular sausage unwittingly scoffed by Raoul). The Mincer and Jim Jam got Waverley off to the perfect start, crashing 24 off the first four overs before the rain returned and again forced the players off. After a 20 minute delay the two teams were back out, but the pitch was very much touch an go. Only one more over was possible before the rains returned again and finally finished the game off, play being abandoned with Waverley on 24-0.

Man of the Match went to Mog for his four wickets, whilst the Funkmaster was awarded the Egyptian Hieroglyph Pink T-Shirt award for some dubious efforts at dancing. The Pink T-Shirt went to Stockrates for wanting to wear his jacket whilst fielding ("because it was wet") and for hopping around like a girl after being hit on the foot. The majority of the players then retired to the Public House for drinks and intelligent conversation (Jim Jam was also present). And on that note we see the return of Jim Jam's Question of the Week when, completely out of the blue, he posed the following question to Teabag: "what is your naked rule?" No, we don't know what he means either...
