Just the one to go

Author: Dave  |  Category: Matches

Last night’s game resulted in a forfeit by 25th Scimitar Cavaliers so Northern pick up maximum points.

EDIT: In all the drama of the weather we didn’t twig that no-one finished that night hence the games all go down as not played and we don’t get the forfeit victory.

Northern ended up having a 15 over a side friendly against another team without an opposition.  Ben Horlock and David Manley opened the batting, Dan Jones picked up a few at 3, Barrie Willacott hit a monster six that sailed down the river, Martin got a duck and in the end the score ended at around 80. I missed much of what happened at the end of the innings chasing the ball down the river.  Horlock finished with a 6 off the last ball which took him to 48NO – second time he’s carried his bat in two games.

Northern opted to mix up the bowling in reply and Perkins bowled some lovely stuff, Chedzoy took a couple in 2 balls and were it not for one horrific over from Clarke 6-2-4-6-6-4 (or similar) then the scores would have been close.  In the end the rain came down heavily and the match was abandoned – in the absence of Duckworth-Lewis tables the game was declared (by us anyway) a draw.  Credit should go to the oppo opener who walked when he was the only one who knew his “bump-ball” had actually hit his foot and not touched the ground.

    Ben ran me out. I thought that was worth a mention. Ben might not (agree) 🙂
