Played at Victoria Park. Report by Tim Castle
- One of our shorter league matches - all over within 19 overs.
- With many regulars holidaying or resting injuries, the team
featured three mid-week debutants - Murphy, Howard and Jamshaid.
- Captain Huckle won the toss and chose to bat, as the cloudy
conditions threatened to grow even gloomier.
- However, the
captain's good luck was not to last and the first two overs saw the
swift loss of openers Kafh (skying catch to
deep mid-wicket) and Roberts (run out).
- Murphy and Huckle nudged the score forward in singles
but first Murphy (run out) and then Huckle (caught) fell so that by
the half-way point (8 overs) the total was just 32.
scored a confident 20 but when he was stumped in the 12th over (with
Haque already gone for 2), all hopes rested on a last wicket stand
between Howard and Jamshaid.
- But once Jamshaid was trapped
LBW in the 13th over, our prospects were looking bleak, with the innings
all over and the tally an unchallenging 54.
- Broadway had little difficulty reaching the target for no loss,
despite some decent Fallopian bowling (including some zippy
deliveries from Howard). The
weather even cleared for Broadway at the end, with the sun breaking
through the clouds as the opposition romped home in the 7th over.
