Match Report

Runwell commoners are regular opponents of ours and we are usually very evenly matched. Both teams had 10 players and we won the toss inserting the opposition.

We had a very young side which lacked experience in the bowling department. The opening bowlers JJ and George started well restricting the opposition to 3 an over, with George taking 2 wickets. The fall of the second wicket brought Runwell's star player to the wicket and our first change bowlers initially struggled. They managed to turn it round with James and Ryan in his second spell impressing. When Graham removed the star man and James continued his good catching the run rate slowed. Matthew bowled a good 2 over spell with control and movement. Runwell closed their innings on 255-4.

Our chase started well with George and myself putting on 50 for the first wicket. George fell and Jeff went soon after to a bad shot to a good ball. Things looked bleak but JJ came to the wicket and started playing the balls to all parts. We put on 100 for the third wicket, when I was out LBW leaving us still needing 90 to win. James came in and played out of his skin hitting a quick fire 26. When JJ fell for 88 the innings was almost over. We fell 30 short of our target with a still respectable 225 all out.

The younger players all performed very well gaining valuable experience which I'm sure will take us to many victories in the future.
