Butthole’s Day – Pleasure Vs Devils Doosra

A fine day it was this Sunday past, when from various modes of transport the Pleasure lads congregated around the kiddie pool to witness Birdshit bathing in a costume that Mrs Birdshit should only have to see.

A quick pep talk from the Parrot and Latex and off we set to the Far field to meet the Doosra boys ready for battle.

After a pre toss of the kooka pie box coming up heads, Bugs confidently called the toss correctly and sent the Doosra boys in to bat.

A quick fielding drill in the cloudy and breezy afternoon and off to the middle for Growler and Tiny to start the innings off against a somewhat timid batting pair with magic bats. A few umpiring anomalies regarding wides and no ball rules and the Doosra were playing and missing, swinging and snicking until Tiny broke through to draw first blood.

Growler being replaced by Tank whose first over of raw pace and accuracy was followed by his second of fruit, the Bashers fielding seemed inspired with Badabing and Pitstop notable for their accurate throws and the Korean tidy behind the stumps.

Extras contributing mostly to the score, and with the wicket keeper squealing as he dodged a low flying bat (really, this DID happen), the Doosra never really got going.

At Drinks 88 runs for 2, and already feeling defeated, the Doosra were only inspired by the gains they could make through dubious umpiring decisions.

After the break Sinbad was joined by Omega who bowled cheaply, took a wicket and watched Sinbad ….drop … well we know what happened there.

After an over of 3 LBW appeals in a row and still no runs, Bugs brought Growler back into the attack and the Doosra found things very difficult.

Swoop and Bugs were injected into the attack and again kept it tight. The Doosra ended at 7 for 168 (39 extras ) on a day made for batting.

Padding up in reply Pothole and Pitstop walked out to begin the chase and from the get go Pothole seemed to middle everything, even his defensive plods raced past the infield.

Pitsop unfortunately succumbed and fell for his first bashers Duck bringing Growler to the crease.

In a Bashers version of Face Off it was Pothole doing the swinging and Growler holding up an end as the first 50 came off 6 overs and by drinks at 1 for 110 and Pothole already past his fifty.

Special mention to Sinbad for being miss-heard to yell “C’mon Butthole” which stuck and thus our stories title.

After the break the Hole kept going where he left off and 127 runs into the partnership he eventually fell at 74, 10 fours and a mighty 6, it was indeed Butthole’s Day.

Omega joined Growler and hitting singles to give him a chance at his fifty, Growler finally missed one and walked off with a hard fought 37.

With the game won Tiny walked in, saw 2 deliveries and then mercilessly swatted the next 2 deliveries to the long hop boundary to put the Doosra out of their misery in the 23rd over.

A very well disciplined win for the Pleasure who are still in the hunt for a 3rd spot and a berth in the Semis after the Hot Dogs lost to Pudong.
