Given the rapid completion of our earlier, scheduled match, both captains agreed to play another, to satisfy our love of cricket, and so a second 15-over match kicked off at 4:45pm. Ankit (45) and myself (19) put on 57 for the first wicket, with Ankit displaying some clean and bold striking. Ron looked stylish on his debut, until he was curiously bowled around his legs. We should probably have scored more than 112, but we sensed it would be more than enough.
Lankians mustered 68 in response, in what was quite a predictable second half. Two or three of their batsmen had good set-upís, but none managed to create any momentum. Our bowlers all bowled two over spells and looked pretty good. The end came as something of an anticlimax. The most memorable bit was some funky weather and the emergence of a double rainbow toward the end of the game.
This poor quality image below shows Ankit winding up for a hefty shot, in our first innings.
