HWCC batted first and opener Aatish hit a quick 30 but we pulled them back and our visitors scored 126 for 7. We gave all our boys a bowl, apart from Robert(who did not want to bowl) and Oli who kept wicket. Archie surprised everyone by bowling out their no. 6 bat in his first wkt/mdn over, but then thought he could bowl fast, lengthened his run up and lost the accuracy of his first over. A lesson for everyone in that it is necessary to retain your balance in the delivery stride by keeping your head still, eyes level and looking at your target. Dylan ran out Aazam their no. 4 batter with an excellent pick up and throw at the stumps. In reply Oscar(30) and Will (35) with a last hit of 6 gave us a good start but only Zac with 14 was able to keep up with the run rate and we ended up with 107 for 7. This was an encouraging performance by our team, their manager after the game told me that they were concerned they might lose the game, particularly after the excellent start given by Oscar and Will, which is probably why their gave 5 of their bowlers the maximum 3 overs allowed, with one of their players neither batting nor bowling.
Our thanks to Widmer End St Margarets CC for allowing us to hire their facilities and my thanks to Jo and Ian for scoring.
