Well, what a game against plucky old foe Martians. We were tough - damned
tough. We put ourselves in to bat with their numbers still at 6. Much style,
aggression and flayling later, we had 157. Surely enough.
underestimate a Martian, is my advice. A rapid and unbeaten 50 from their
opener, not even wearing proper cricket gear (Tim, check rules on this,
please), kept them on our tails, occasionally nipping ahead. Wickets started
to fall, catching was faultless, but they kept in the race.
Last ball, 5 to win, one wicket left, opener back at the crease,
inside edge from a rapid straight delivery sped to the boundary behind leg.
Tied! - Philip Barrass
