Players urge for rain to go away

IT is that time of year when cricketers tilt their heads skywards and hope the clouds steer clear of Salter Oval.

Every season the January-February period is stalled by rain delays, and this year is no different.

“You can’t do much about it, just come to expect it,” Brothers captain David Boge said.

“It’s frustrating and players lose their motivation when they aren’t playing every weekend.”

Boge said the wet weather could change the outlook of the remaining season.

“We’re used to batting on flat wickets, but batsman might need to work a bit harder on a green top,” he said.

“A total of 150 may be enough for a win in these conditions, who knows.”

Across The Waves bowler Rhys Grills says he has only had one net session and one game in the past month.

“It’s hard to keep your rhythm and motivation up when you never get to bowl,” he said.
