The first win on the board!!! What a game!!
The weather forcast rain all day, games were being cancelled across the fixture card, but with a little sun we could at least get our game started.
The wicket was very green, and with overcast cloud the ball would definalty swing, we won an important toss to bowl first.
Fantastic opening spells from Dan Collington, traping their openiner LBW third ball, and Joe Cope kept us tight.
Enter Richard Drinkwater to swing the ball miles and take 5 - 28 - 10, 4 bowled and 1 caught & bowled, great back upfrom Aaman and Max, Balderton all out 183
Not a good start batting, with Newbs and Max falling early, but a brilliant partnership between Dave Hedge 31 and Dan Jones 57 put us back in the game. Looking steady on 114 for 3 off 28 we lost Hedgy and Dan quickly putting the game back in Baldertons hands.
Swings and Roundabouts!
Steady batting from Mansoor Khan and a couple of bounderies from Joe Cope and Dan Collington before being bowled and caught put the sides level again.
Enter Aaman Singh and William Crowder on 146 for 8 off 37
38 required from 8 at nearly 5 an over
No fear from the lads, playing their shots and running between the wickets brilliantly. Closing in on the target score Will hits a massive six over mid off and two more classy fours to seal with game in the 43rd over.
Fantastic game all round, well done lads!!
