Bowled second balllIn Stradbroke yesterday the home team were at 60 runs when a middle order batsman was bowled second ball.  Next man in out first ball but impressively the tail wagged finishing at 106.  The visiting Colchester Cavaliers were scoring steadily when we started to feel hungry, no lunch.  Cricket teas seem to have joined affordable postage stamps and tomatoes that taste of something so we went home ... final score.
