Crabtree Back to winning ways.
Result: Win by 40 runs
Following back to back defeats something radical had to be done to get Crabtree back in victory mode. Hence a strong 1st X1 was selected to take on Final CC at Greenwood Park. Al Rawlinson was inserted as skipper for the evening and his Benitez like team talk obviously had the desired effect.
Crabtree chose to bat first and after early wickets of Baker ( 7 ) and Hale ( 9 ), Arnerich and Bowman came together and really pushed the score along with knocks of 27 ret and 22 respectively. Skipper Rawlinson came to the crease to produce his usual tally of lusty blows and quick running turning two’s into three’s and soon retired on 25. ( a suggestion has been made by everyone who bats with Al that the Club kit back should contain at least one defibrulator !!! ). Good batting continued with Jenkins ( 12 no ) and Blanchard ( 21 no ) to give Crabtree a commanding 154 for 4 by close of innings. It is worth noting that we were helped to a certain extent by our highest scorer – Extras on 31. The last over, bowled somewhat coincidentally by someone called Alastair, conceded 7 wides !!!
Final reached 114 for 4 giving Crabtree a well earned victory.
