    Playing cricket in the foothills of Puncak

    Some beer talking at the pub one night lead to a challenge, cricket; format twenty20, whinning poms vs teachers.

    Puncak is a mountainous area halfway between bogor and Bandung, about 2 hours from Jakarta, except for my boss, he got lost and took 3 hours to get there!

    Almost the same spot as this resort.

    I've mentioned this location before, it's a damn nice house for these guys, (2 brothers) who own it.

    One of the brothers was the umpire...

    The captains tossed the coin and the teachers won the toss (which unfortunately later proved to be the only thing they won that day)

    the weather was looking a little threatening....
    but it mostly confined itself to a thunderstorm during our lunch break

    The barking mad scotsman at the crease fell over trying to play a hook shot...

    too busy workign I guess...


    after eating we drank some (actually, we started before the game started) we were surprised that we had already drunk 6 boxes of beer, 30 minutes after the game had finished. Sent someone for a beer run.



    we stayed sitting there for a little while...

    Yes, they look like the elite . . . of what?


    Excellent pics of a day enjoyed. I imagine you'd moved to Sri Lanka, you have the locals kicking your butt as well

    Of course they would. They could, quite possibly, be, and this is something I've been studying lately, practical study, you understand, an inverse relationship between level of cricketing ability and the ratio of time spent drinking after cricket and actual time spent practising or playing cricket.

    Yes, but the Indians are all cheating fuckers. You should see what they get up to in the Bangkok league.
