Pleasure cruise to defeat – Sunday Aug 6th

The pleasure were up for a mid-table medley on Sunday as they went into battle against Pu Dong. Pu Dong were right behind the Bashers on the table so a win would put some distance between Pudong and launch the Pleasure into the playoffs.

Rain Lubricates Leisure Title Journey

Imperial Leisure assured their place in the playoffs on Saturday after gaining a point for a tie, but missing out on a win that would have put them into second place. Leisure batted first, putting on a testing 165, with an excellent return to form for Fruitbox with a well-crafted 50. In reply Hot Dogs could only manage a measly 55 off 10 overs before monsoon conditions stopped play, and the match was called off.


It’s good to have the pies, ice, esky and beers as we get onto the bus, and bad to not have 11 players for the game. But, as Skiddy had used only his hands to count the players for the game, we only had 10. After consulting with legal counsel, Skiddy called in “Aaron” (as named on the scorecard) to make an 11. Thanks to “Aaron” for accepting the late call up and arriving by the second over…let’s just presume he was sitting kitted-up at Century Ave Metro, just in-case the call came in.

10 Wicket Win, Leisure vs Daredevils – 30th July 2017

Weary, haggard faces all round at the Camel, mostly due to the age of the team;  Rash,  Spanner and Pope just not looking after themselves. Team accounted for,  Eskies full, pies available, bus adjacent, we headed out.

Pleasure vs Leopards/Zalmi, 22 July 2017

Friday was the hottest day in recorded Shanghai history, so we the early discussion on Saturday was about the heat. Skipper said no drinking, then wechatted photos of himself and a giant teddy bear in the early hours.
2nd XI Hands Up!

Team for Pleasure vs. Leapords/China Zalmi

After much deliberation and discussion, the team for this Saturday has been picked.  

Lumberjack Leisure vs Dulwich June 11th 2017

What is a Captain's role? Some might say it is to set the field diligently, be proactive, change the bowlers and try to out think the batsmen, but as the captain of Leisure there is more to it than that. All the afore mentioned tasks can be outsourced/delegated to someone else on the field; where the Leisure captain shows his worth is in logistics…making sure there is beer, pies, getting the team to the field on time, winning the toss (or at least predicting the toss), attending fines and making sure the lumberjack is written.

Sun. July 16 – Pleasure vs Hangzhou CC Lumberjack

Young enough to have seen the Inbetweeners movie? The scene where they arrive in Malia pretty much sums up the blazing hot Sunday afternoon which saw a formidable Pleasure side take on undefeated league debutants Hangzhou CC. Neatly quartered pies allowed for mess-free scoffing while a handful of Bashers made an appointment with Dr. Tim to beat the heat. Big thanks to Birdy, who joined to provide live scoring and sup the good stuff, and Snorlax, Tucker's boyfriend from back home who came along to sleep while we played.

Lumberjack – Leisure vs Hot Dogs 9th July 2017

Words by mouse, photos by Tampon   Bleep bleep bleep….the alarm went off. WTF, is it time to get up already? The answer, Yes!
2nd XI Hands Up!

Team for Pleasure vs Hangzhou

Just the one game this weekend, and it's a big one! Pleasure take on the top of the table side from Hangzhou.
