After a stirring performance against the Jacks Point Angry Dragons on Friday night the Pelican has rotated to the squad for the game against the Arrowtown Massive.
The Team for Sunday is as follows
Ralph Winder (c)
Johnny “Woodchopper” Stephens
Damian Petre – Top Batsman
Regan 9 Slips
Dzin Wilson – Top Bowler
Baa Baa – Man of the match previous week
We have chosen 12 players again, someone will miss out on batting/bowling.
The game starts at 1pm so players should be at the ground by 12:50 pm for warm-ups, remember that Dippers will be monitoring punctuality closely this season. Keep an eye out for the flashing green light. This will be our secret message to the batsmen to lift the run rate even more.
The Pelican is shocked and disappointed to hear that some teams have been practising for this seasons 20/20 campaign. He would like to re-iterate his position on this curse of the game. The only training that should indulged by committed Pelicans is done from the comfort of a three seater couch watching the Aussies getting beaten by the Safas with a cold Speight’s in hand.
With this in mind we will be holding a pre-game recovery session at the Ale house on Friday night to go over the mountain of beer taps while
watching the shackle draggers play the dirty boks. All Pelicans, WAGs, supporters and sponsors are invited to attend from 7.00 pm onwards.
Going ‘over the mountain’ is a tribute to Sir Edmund Hilary the original Pelican.
In other breaking news the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has finaly recognized the excellence of the Pelican team with a star on Hollywood Boulevard. This has been awarded to acknowledge a lifetime of battling in the trenches with the other birds of prey before finally breaking free to establish a cricketing phenomenon in central Queenstown.
Pelicans are the only bird that can digest concrete.
Till next week
