I am a well-pitched delivery. Just short of a length.
In the right spot. But am losing my shine.
Am roughing up. The innings is getting longer.
The sun is taking its toll. My movements are slowing.
I am not as quick. Not as sharp.
Not shown much respect. I am easy to judge, easy to punish.
But I keep them honest. I keep attacking.
I do not give up. I tease ‘Hit me but I will come again’.
I am always a chance. I am optimistic.
I am just short of a length.
