Fishlipps.no-ip.org called the toss yesterday, and chose to field first. garmabeaneth and nesman put CricketMX.com off to a good start, but after both getting out in the space of 4 balls, it left dr sad and battye to struggle in the deep end.
dr sad made no real impact, being stumped after dancing down the pitch to a delivery from river_mouse. battye continued with grinch2171, but ended up being caught in the outfield for 38. grinch2171 made 27, while the dependable wanabe, wasn't so dependable, making a start of 33.
krb107 looked promising with 37, before being trapped LW by Obscene_Messiah. krb107 has the rest of the series to prove himself, after StorbinC, CricketMX.com's replacement wicket keeper, was dropped from the squad.
