Its cricket fever of a different kind. I and some others at work have got together and formed our own team - funnyily called COSARC (Columbus OHIO Sports and Re-creation Club) and have joined the Midwest League here.
Surprise surprise this team formed with quite a few bits and pieces players ended winning the first couple of games. Not much of a contribution from me in the first game with just 9 runs opening the Innings involved in a couple of good partnerships and a catch behind the sticks.
The second match was against an all Pakistani side called Shihab. That too was a pretty close game with the opposing team handing a game to us on a platter. We surely didn't deserve to win that match.
Scoring just 123 off 30 overs in a 35 over game we surely had no great ambitions of winning. But we started off fighting. Heads were beginning to droop at 80 odd for 3. A couple of wickets of the batsmen going strong at the time and the most amazing collapse to 102 all out followed. :-)
Will keep you posted on how the rest of the weekend games go. We need to win 2 of the next five games atleast to go into the playoffs.
