Report by Tim Castle

Old Fallopians won the toss and we decided to bat as we had a strong batting line-up for this Cup game.
- Freddie Barrass and Matt Wake had little trouble notching up 50s before retiring
- First 50 ever for Matt Wake!
- Tipu also hit 50 and was even quicker getting to the target, retiring on the penultimate ball of the innings, allowing Philip Barrass to score one run off his one ball faced.
- Best Nationals hampered by playing one short, leaving huge gaps in the field, Saj Rehman held up in traffic and only arriving in our 15th over.

- Having set a sizeable target of 185, it looked safe to mix up the bowling, but like the batting, we had a strong bowling side.
- Kemet took the only wicket, ably caught by Jack Holmes
- Our bowling was generally tight and the opposition soon fell behind the required run rate
- Towards the end, even though there was still a theoretical chance of reaching the total (80 needed off the last four overs), the Best National batsmen lost heart and barely ran between the wickets.

A decisive victory for the 2nds, gaining us a further Cup fixture against Camel Lights on May 30.

Well done all.
