I think the biggest thing they missed was Moeen Ali dropping the easiest catch of his life.

Absolutely comical. Worse drops than that are few and far between at this level.

I would expect every 13 year old kid who has ever played cricket to take that. Not ideal.

It's the kind of drop that the coaches' kid gets patted on the back for the attempt, because he didn't run away from it.

Anyone else misses that and it's fire and brimstone from the boundary.

Pretty much, Teams had merged for the season, Coaches son was their wicketkeeper, I was ours.

He was the single worst keeper in the league the previous season, while I had more stumpings than the rest of the league combined. I called Coach out on the favouritism (He didn't even give me a chance to challenge for the spot) and got banished to perpetual Fine Leg for almost half the season.

When your Captain/Keeper is both a moron and the Coaches' son, it's a miserable season. (Can you tell I'm still miffed about it?)
