Match Report: 1st May, 6:00PM, Manland, Rothampstead Park

A tie again to open season

Result: Match Tied

 Would you believe it - another tie with Manland! 

 As we had 10 (who was late CVS?) at 6pm we won the virtual toss and chose to field. We agreed a 16 over match - early May and a cloudy evening. Despite everybody bowling a good length and line (or maybe because of it) Manland scored consistently at 8/9 and over. Only being slightly hampered by two late wickets from Ben. On a fast outfield we always felt we had a chance. After Tim (25no) and Ben(36 no) had done their work to we needed 19 off the last 3 overs to win. The result always in balance the tie was decided by a run out off the last ball. Down to Bennetts - all is well cricket is with us again.

Match Report: 15th May, 6:00PM, Final CC, Greenwood Park

Excellent team effort wit help from the heavens.

Result: Won by 25 runs

Expecting a difficult game against a young looking opposition we ran out comfortable winners. A solid batting performance underpinned by the usual not out from Ben resulted in a stretching target of 133 off 18 overs. The only major negative was the captain's inability to connect bat with ball (guilt complex bought on by too much sun). Tight bowling from everybody resulted in a very professional win. Not words we should bandy about too often or else we will lose our monica as beer cricket at its best.
