Cougars 1st XI 8/155 dec defeated North Balwyn 144. Resuming the day at 2/75 the general consensus was that the game would be over one way or the other by drinks and subsequently tee time bookings for 3 groups of 4 were made at Kingston Links for 2:37, 2:45 and 2:53pm. Andrew Wright held up his end of the bargain knocking up a solid 52 and along with Super-K who made 30-odd the game looked safe. Wrighty knocked one to cover on the full and hit the showers bringing Timmsy to the crease. He survived the longest appeal of all time first ball with many from the sidelines remarking that from side on, 70+ metres away it really looked out. He departed shortly after slapping a couple of boundaries and received a send off scoring 5.5's all round from the judges. This sparked a mini collapse involving a handful of edges behind the wicket from K, Jason Combridge and Nev. Jason Barrie guided the team home with a superb cameo, blasting a number of boundaries including a six that unofficially measured 107m. Tyler Walsh batted on after passing the score and forgot to wear his glasses out to the middle. He nearly touched one with the bat, but didn't and ended up skittled for a quacker. He graciously let Shane MacGregor get most of the way out to the middle with all his gear on before declaring the innings closed and arvo tea served. Rick Alabaster, Naqi Haider, Macca and myself all not required this week and looking for a refund on our $5. Wrighty was not only best on the field but also best off it and broke his duck of never having spoken to an opposition after a game. With a 50 and a 3-for in his pocket he parked himself amongst the NBCC boys and reminisced about his delicious shot-making. All in all a great start to the season, good to win and great to see Michael Muttiah rocking the full, official president's match day attire.

Cougars 2nd XI today resumed at 2/50 needing 50 runs for victory.....you would have though it would have been fait accompli. Well we got the job done but not without a heart flutter early in the day. Loosing 3/3 in 3 overs to start the day today and be 5/54 wasn't the start we were really after. Nothing was mentioned amongst the group but I am sure there were a few thinking oh no!!!! After this minor hiccup we regained our MOJO with Haydn Thompson leading the way with the bat 54n.o (Jason Barrie you missed out!!!), Shane Gordon a spirited 16 after being in bed all week with the flu (Rumour has it he fertilised the plants after his innings!!!), Ali HYdi in his first game for the Cougars made 14. Cougars finished on 9/155 when we called the game off. Very happy to kick off the season with a win. Bring on next week!!!
