Taverners Vs AICC
May 29, 2019
After last seasons drubbing it seemed at the start that AICC were bent on revenge.
Taverners batting 1st soon lost Hein with the score at 1 that being a wide.but then Sid & Anil set about re-establishing Taverners superiority with Sid reaching 51 before holing out at deep long on. Anil followed soon after for 21 with Taverners 86 for 2. Chris & Andrew added a few but mostly extras so that Taverners were in a strong position at 96 for 2. Then followed a procession of Taverner batsmen to the middle & back without adding much to the score until after 20 overs Taverners were 109 for 9 with extras contributing 25 of those runs.
AICC soon took control with the bat taking advantage of some stale bowling. For some reason the skipper left himself & Sid idling in the field & the only bowlers to have much to be happy about were Andrew & Nigel both with 2 wickets.
Unfortunately the scorebook was not very useful for this report.
Post game was the short drive away at Chomo’s with the old stand by beer & chips with a very good turn out on a very pleasant warm & dry evening. Chris seems to have caused some confusion by offering to by the 1st round but by that time most people had already paid & the mathmatical problem of deucting $4 from their payment was beyond the ability of most. Still in the end there was a surplus of a couple of dollars including 10 dimes I guess someones piggy bank was a bit short that evening.
