RIcky and James get Tons


Ricky Dale scored an impressive 121 not out to help the 1s to a 98 run victory.  Playing Offham at home the team were put into bat by the visitors who picked up a couple of early wickets until Ricky was joined by Calum Leary (38) who together put on a 61 run partnership.  As wickets fell Ricky continued to hold his end up and with his eye in scored 51 of the 62 runs as the team reached 252 for 9 in their allotted overs.

Tyler Wassel (2 for 33) and Owen Harrison (1 for 19) picked up early wickets and Kesha Rajadurai (4 for 44),  Harry Mantle (2 for 39) and Will Cosstick (1 for 12) continued to keep the pressure on as Offham could build a partnership with the last 4 wickets falling for 12 runs. The team won by 98 runs in the 44th over.


The 2nd XI entertained Chestfield and decided to bat.  Rob Kennett (28) started well by wickets fell regularly around him and apart from Daniel Gunner (34) the team struggled and found themselves bowled out for 114  in the 49th over.

Not deterred the team bowled well with openers Ben Wiebe-Williams (3 for 23) and Jake Mitchell  (2 for 17) destroying the top order.  Joe Mills picked up 2 for 18 but the team was always short in runs as the visitors crossed the line with 3 wickets and 22 overs to spare.


The 3rd XI played Milsteadaway and elected to bat.  After losing a couple of quick wickets Daniel Covey (27) and Tony Hatfield (35) steadied the ship but wickets fell again but 29 from Ashley Bax and 19 from Toby Heather saw the team reach 146 all out on the last ball of their innings.

Ashley Bax (2 for 23) picked up a couple of early wickets and supported by Glenn Kennett ( 2 for 18) and Daniel Covey (1 for 31) chipped away at Milstead.  Ethan Collier also picked up a wicket but the opposition crossed the line with 3 wickets and just over 3 overs to spare.
