Second team start with a win

by Ian Burrows 0 Comments

The second team started their season with a home game against Laverstock
and Ford 2nds. Kev Sims’s first act as captain was to win the toss and bat.
He was rewarded with a good performance, led by Dave Surridge with an
impressive 119*, his highest score for Travellers. There was good support
from Dave Allen with 27 and Kev Allen with 32*. 37 extras helped us reach
239-4.

Laverstock started their reply very aggressively but lost wickets,
including a first for the club for Shiv Banerjee. They had a strong innings
of 69 from their number 4 but excellent bowling from Lee Fitzpatrick with 6
– 29, a career best, ensured we won by 73 runs. Other wickets went to Ian
Burrows with 2 and Bill Stroud. Our fielding was mixed, highlighted by a
sharp catch for Lee.
