Last over victory for First Team
We travelled to Bournemouth to play their 3rd team who had also started the
season well. We were put into bat and compiled 227 for 8. This was built on
contributions from Febin, Abhijit, Shiv, Prashant and Matt all of whom
passed 20, with Abhijit and Shiv reaching 40. Our top scorer however was
extras with 51 thanks mainly to a fast bowler who couldn’t stop bowling
wides and no balls.
Bournemouth started at a good rate and were always in the game but once
their opener was dismissed for 56 the run rate slowed and we won by 6 runs
with their last man run out by a great throw from Prath with a ball to go.
Wickets were shared by Irfan, with 2, Chris with 1, Matt with 2 and Shiv
with 4 for 29. The fielding on a large ground was much improved on last
Maximum points sees us in a good position at the top of the table looking
forward to playing Breamore at home next week.
