    Hi guys,

    Long time no speak, I havent been on here for a while. You may remember that towards the end of last season, I was relieved of my bowling duties and was picked in the team as an opening batsman. I was told that I wouldnt be bowling and honestly, we didnt put enough on with the bat to warrant me a bowl and this continued for the start of this season. However, yesterday we put on 225, we had a break through early on but after 20 overs, they were 72-4 (not chasing the game, using it as more of a net) and I was thrown the ball, I felt quite nervous and panic flowed through my body. Anyways, I bowled the best I have bowled, I was consistent and spinning the ball with a good amount of flight. I finished with figures of 6.3-0-19-5! My first ever 5 wicket haul, 3 bowled, an LBW and a catch. They were 105 all out. Finally I have got some confidence back with my bowling, onwards and upwards from here on I hope, we just need to put on some runs consistently to allow me a bowl.
