An interesting beginning to the game as the 4 players, yes 4 players delayed the start requesting umpire Dan to measure and remeasure the creases…( if he could find them )
So we start with 4 against a strong Bengal team..the keeper drops the first ball..we escape with only 8 of the over…finally the cavalry arrives in the form of Mr Emery straight from his surgery and we borrow a youngster from the MCA.
They batted well scoring an impressive 163…not much to report about the bowling and usual Taverner fielding…
In reply Sid / Chris gave us 49, Anil and youngster 45 , leaving David and Nigel 71 to chase down…which they didn’t..we lost by a few
A small gathering at the Cambridge as some players added to their woes by going to the Jet game
Practice at the Fox this week…usual time
