Match Report: 22nd July, 6:00PM, Killigrew, TBC

Crabtree 95-7 off 20 overs, K’grew won with three overs to spare

Result: Lost by 7 wickets

There must be something about playing Killigrew – dark skies, rain interruptions, but this time no lightning strikes. Steve H won the toss and chose to bat on a flat if green tinged wicket, but wickets fell at regular intervals against some accurate and fast Killigrew bowling allied to some ambitious shots perhaps too early in the innings. Ian B anchored the innings with 26*, then Neil D (21 incl his customary sweet struck six), and Andy B (12) injected some much needed runs and acceleration against their quickies at the end. 95 – 7 felt like a fair recovery having been 64 – 5 after 15, and a defendable total. Probably one of the best bowling sides we’ve played against.

It then poured down for a little while and Jonty and myself served as chief towellers, drying a damp ball. Dan C, Nick T and Matt G kept it tight in the first few overs and Ian B returned a spell of 3 overs 1 for 6, but by then their opening pair had added over 40 and the target was looking a formality with wickets in hand – their openers running very well and turning ones in to twos. Neil and Nick chipped in with wickets to raise the pressure for a while but Killigrew were home and dry (!) with 3 overs to spare.  A good overhead catch by Phil W, no dropped catches, but three near run-outs – and on another day, if one of those had gone our way, it might have been a very close run thing. Well captained Steve.
