That's the best I can think of to say tonight, as we lose a game by 2 wickets that was there for the taking.
I know that there were numerous outside edges passed, a couple of chances put down and a good shout for caught behind at a critical stage. Yet that doesn't mask the fact that we SHOULD have won this game.
In the last match at Leicester, we lost as the bowlers came up against a flat track. Here I'd have backed the attack to skittle them on a wicket with a lot of help and 240-plus runs to play with.
There were two things that disappointed me. One was that an ex-Test bowler goes for 7 an over on such a wicket, the other is that we played a leggie who never turned his arm over.
Now I know that Nantie Hayward suffered from the ball going off the edge, but with limited runs to play with, surely his field or his bowling need questioned? When the others go for three an over, that's 30-odd runs given away somehow, massive in the context of the game.
The other issue is a puzzler. Why did Lawson play? He's a good fielder, but they all are and he scored 20-odd this morning. Yet his non-appearance at the bowling crease suggests the skipper didn't trust him, so why did he play? Surely Hughes, Clare or Sadler would have offered more?
Like the rest of you I'm hurting tonight. I can take losing to decent sides, but this was definitely one that got away. Whether it is terminal to our promotion chances only time will tell, but it has been made a heck of a lot harder now.
