The last time we played the Battersea Badgers we – or should I say Lomas Persad – put on a thrilling display.
Batting to save the Super Test, he hit a titanic 119 in a record-breaking partnership with Dan Sherman. So let’s hope he can do more of the same in our game against them tomorrow.
One thing could spoil it though, for yet another week this season we’ve got a really good game lined up – and it looks like rain is on the way.
When we played the London Itinerants, it chucked it down. The pitch was soggy but we carried on. Then we were meant to play the Dors, but that was rained off.
Even last week the weather was good, but we played on a Wandsworth Park pitch that hadn’t recovered from a week’s rain.
For tomorrow’s game at Dundonald Rec in Wimbledon, the outlook doesn’t look good again – it’s going to be warm, but the downpours could be torrential.
Expect a low-scoring match, again.
