Sunday Friendly XI v Sandhurst CC
Willo's the star at Sandhurst
We ventured to nearby Sandhurst this week for the first time in a while. Losing the toss, saw us in the field.
DJ beat the bat regularly but had no luck in separating the openers who put on 100. Jonny made the breakthrough, quickly followed by Josh's smart work in running out the non-striker off his own bowling.
What followed was pure comedy as their batsman somehow managed to scoop my bouncing bomb (first ball) straight to Jared. More home batsmen contrived to throw their wickets away as we bowled them out in the last of the forty overs. Jared taking three late wickets in his second spell. Supported by Bomber with 4 (2 bought wickets) and Jonny A 2.
In reply, things were looking shaky when we lost Matt P,Stu, Justin and Matthew early on. At least Willo was still there having been dropped on 2.
Needing 125 off the last twenty, most of our hopes rested with him and we were not disappointed as he smashed their bowling around, ably supported by DJ, Rick and Josh N.
He finished the game with a six and ended up on 125n.o as we won with nearly four overs to spare.
