WHCC v Old Sinjuns
Fingers lost the toss and we were put into the field by the opposition but with both our South African’s opening the bowling we were hoping for early in-roads. Jayson Bird bowled tight and Roger looked tired and after a long bowling stint we hadn’t made much of a dent in the wickets column. The run rate though was low but with plenty of wickets in hand the opposition soon started to attack the remaining bowling and compile a hefty total to chase. During a couple of overs we were running out of balls due to some big sixes: one clean over Brewery Road, one cannoned into someone’s porch (fortunately double glazed), one into a passing car and one into a cyclist via the Oak trees by Ashley Cook’s !!!
In reply we lost Awas early on and despite good knocks from Arvind and Albert (39) further down the order we fell far short of the 200+ required and lost with about 10 overs remaining.
The fielding was of a high standard again with an excellent catch by Roger and loads of running and sliding by David Fowles (where is that Persil sponsorship ?). The Sunday team now has a boxed set of results: Abandoned, Won, Drawn and lost all at home the next game is away at Rowan where we hope to get back to our winning ways.
