Match Reports by President Ralph Middlebrook

Saturday May 20, 2023 v Bowling Old Lane @ The Brit

A sunny day, a flat pitch, a quicker outfield, what more could a batter wish for. Certainly not to be run out, which was the fate of our opening pair! The innings then began to take shape with Bilal and Huzafa stabilising the situation before the partnership of Captain Adam Patrick and Mark Ferguson set the game alight with a stylish exhibition of boundaries and running between the wickets. Adam in particular took the eye with a parade of strokes from the coaching manual, rarely will he play better. Ferguson was fluent and a volley of shots quickly took him to 73 (7x4 & 2x6). The Captain (6x4 & 2x6) took us to 223, was it enough?

It proved to be so as all the bowlers chipped in with a wicket but Matthew Humpleby claimed 3 for 19 in his 8 overs with his off spin to clinch the points. Well bowled.

A good days League Cricket exemplified by the entire BOL team applauding Ferguson and Patrick as they left the field of play, top notch.

Well played Congs.
