Ok, I've enjoyed these matches for a good while so, unless a worthier oppo presents themselves, am prepared to strap on my pads and stride to the wicket, to face the Herds bowling.

I'm perfectly happy to return to the Herd as a simple member, and I'm fine with the pace of the match.

@stiefnu - watch out for diane, she bowls a wicked googly.

It's not so much the googly I'm worried about, as the reverse swing :-)
