Double Wicket This Weekend.
All players and supporters are welcome to the ‘Double Wicket’ day held this Sunday at Hawthorndene Oval (note: change of venue). Details about the day are below.
The ‘Double Wicket’ competition pits pairs of 2 players drawn out of a hat against one another in a knock-out format. Each pair receives the opportunity to face 4 overs of bowling (2 per player) and vice versa. The team with the most amount of runs after each game wins and moves on, with losers then placed in a ‘lucky losers pool’ or finished for the day. If one player is unfortunate to get out before the completion of the overs, then they act as the runner for their partner until such time as they get out or complete the overs.For all catches or run-outs made, the fielder in question receives a free soft drink from the club to be claimed on the day.
Last year, the Vander Wyst family (Theo and Aaron) took out the trophy over a couple of Belair Cricket Club boys. Let us not mention that they received a little help from a certain ‘famous’ double-wicketer, who dropped a ‘dolly’ of a catch to ensure that the final went the distance. We hope that this kind of sportsmanship isn’t repeated this year, as a fair winner is always desired.
There will be a BBQ and bar (with soft drinks) provided for all throughout the day. Various kids games are also planned, so it is a family affair for all. Costs are detailed below, but everyone would simply love to see you there.
In the end, it is a fun and social day, with the club hoping to see you all there. If you plan on attending this day, can you please let Jarrad know through an email, a call or at training this Wednesday night. His contact details are on the contacts page. Alternatively, if you speak to Geoff ‘Gyprock’ Jenner, then this message will also be passed onto the organising committee.
Hope to see you all there.
