A very hot day; Surprisingly our Skipper was drowning his sorrows with a
beer before the game even started.
The beer worked and Adrian won the toss and elected to bat.
Great second wicket partnership of 126 between Bob (68) and Phil.P(59) got
the first 20 overs to a flying start.
The giddy heights of 250+ looked possible but Ives slowed down. Good knock
of 19 by J.Concur toward the end helped the
So a total of 185 for the loss of 6 wickets was set.
Chaseville started quickly and got the runs in less than 30 overs. Best by
far of the bowlers was Superstar who finished with
2-23 off 8 with 2 maidens. The rest of the bowlers pretty much got tonked
all over the field.
Matt bowled a few good overs but then saw the ball (and the replacement
other 2 balls) elevated towards Thames narrowly missing a few 747s on their
3 grommets wandered across the field giving it the typical lip – Bob had to
be restrained – the youngsters so frightened that they ended up stealing a
boundary marker. Classy!!
