Twenty 20 Fun Day a roaring success

The Twenty20 fun day at KGV on the 9th of March was a great success with about 100 people either playing, helping out or just enjoying a fine public holiday at KGV.

The highlight of the day was with no doubt the Club President Brett Smith's turnout in spikes. He recieved a standing ovation from the crowd and a guard of honour from Chimes' Players XI as he strode to the crease with his team in trouble at 4 for 40 odd. Egg played two amazing back-foot cut shots for four (amazing in that he never had a heart attack whilst playing them) in his short stay at the crease before Jimmy Kappelar cramped the big man for room and he was out bowled.

The Players XI were set a very good target of 214 from their 20 overs and looked in big trouble (like most weeks) early on before the old wise head of Andrew McKellar and young Matthew Dilger brought them home, Noisy scoring a boundary off the last ball to snatch a tight win.

The game was marred by a spate of controversial umpiring decisions by umpired Anderson and McKellar senior.

The second game was the Sons versus Fathers and this isn't worth writing about as the sons comprehensively smashed their old men to all parts of the ground, Brodie Philip and Damien LeRossignol particuarly looking like the game has caught with them and they need not to bother fronting up again.

All in all a very enjoyable day on and off the field and there is no doubt it will be back again next year!!!

Egg thought about fielding off his bowling but then thought otherwise
