First time for everything

I have just returned home from my very first cricket match. It was quite an exciting game too. A limited overs twenty20 cup match between the Hampshire Hawks and the Sussex Sharks.

I didn't think it could be that exciting at a cricket match, but having only 20 overs (6 balls) really makes the players try and hit the ball all over the park. Our game was not the highest scoring match, but it was quite tense at the end.

Hampshire won by making sure that Sussex could not get the runs they needed in the last few overs.

I would like a thank Geoff Skinner of Panacea for inviting me and making sure I understood the LBW rule before I went. It's loads more complicated than the football offside rule.
