It was the battle between myself and Harry Brook in Sydney grade cricket at the weekend, and thankfully Mosman came out on top.

While we have been struggling this season and Brooky’s University of New South Wales have been going well at the top of the table, we managed to get the win in a two-day match by defending our opening day total of 338.

In terms of the personal performances, I’d say we were both pretty happy with how we went, although I was frustrated to fall cheaply with the bat. No excuses, I played a poor shot and was out for a duck.

Throughout the week, I’d been telling Brooky ‘I’m going to get you out. I’ll hit you on the front pad’. But he just laughed it off.

Unfortunately, I didn’t manage to get him as he top-scored with a patient 62 in the first innings and then, once we’d won by bowling them out for 188, he added a more aggressive 82 in their second innings with the game done.

I did manage to get 3-32 from 17 overs in the first innings to continue a decent winter bowling wise.
