Played at Victoria Park, pitch 2
Report by Tim Castle
Old Fallopians won the toss and we decided to bat as we had a strong
batting line-up for this Cup game.
- Freddie Barrass and Matt
Wake had little trouble notching up 50s before retiring
50 ever for Matt Wake!
Tipu also hit 50 and was even quicker getting to the target, retiring
on the penultimate ball of the innings, allowing Philip Barrass to
score one run off his one ball faced.
- Best Nationals hampered
by playing one short, leaving huge gaps in the field, Saj Rehman
held up in traffic and only arriving in our 15th over.
Having set a sizeable target of 185, it looked safe to mix up the
bowling, but like the batting, we had a strong bowling side.
Kemet took the only wicket, ably caught by Jack Holmes
bowling was generally tight and the opposition soon fell behind the
required run rate
- Towards the end, even though there was still
a theoretical chance of reaching the total (80 needed off the last
four overs), the Best National batsmen lost heart and barely ran
between the wickets.
A decisive victory for the 2nds, gaining
us a further Cup fixture against Camel Lights on May 30.
Well done all.
