Imaginary News Network : For when the real news is just too awful to contemplate

2nd Test - Day 10 Report


The pre-match debate in the pressbox was all about how long Umbrian captain, Majahid Ranmanakoolaban, would wait before the declaration, but in the end it was a moot point as Umbria were skittled out for just 24 by a devastating burst of fast chucking by Michael Sonson.

The day had started slowly, with the Umbrian battersmen apparently in no rush to force the issue, but the surprise selection of Rum for the mid-morning drinks break seemed to transform Sonson, and the Umbrian battersmen were all back in the rabbit hole in time for lunch (Vegetable Biryani).

The afternoon session began with a solid and positive partnership between Imaginary openers Bullson and Chives (shifted up the order after Jimson's earlier retirement pending drug-use investigations), putting on 65 without loss up till tea. The post-tea drinks break (again, a surprise decision of more Rum), put a dampener on the rest of the day's play, which progressed only intermittently, the Imaginary battersmen adding another 34 with only Bullson back in the hole.

It'll be a tense final day tomorrow, and with the pitch deteriorating and Rum hangovers most likely, the odds will be heavily in Umbria's favour.

Day 10 Close
Umbria (1st Innings): 132 all in the hole.
Imaginary (1st Innings): 102 all in the hole.
Umbria (2nd Innings): 467 all in the hole.
Imaginary (2nd Innings): 89 for 2, up 1.
