The First Ashes Warm-Up Match – Day Two Poem

Joey Root,
Johnny B,
Came out to face
The new cherry

Block and leave
Like the day before
Not much to cheer,
Maidens galore

A quiet first hour
Recovery perhaps?
Then a leg side snaffle
And an English collapse

Two-three-two
A score below par
Inspiration needed
Jimmy to star?

Two quick wickets
300 for Jim!
Two edges well held
Confidence at the brim

A recovery led
By swashbuckler Taylor
Williamson dropped
Matt Prior the failer

Broad and Finn off target
FFS bowl straight
Then Jimmy came back
and struck for England late

New Zealand on top
By a wicket or two
the ebbs of Test Cricket
about to ensue…

I'll muse on various subjects, mainly involving willow, leather and grass. My natural instincts is to heap as many compound adjectives as I can to sporting natterings. If you like, then feel free to link :)
