Highest Crabtree Innings

Result: Lost by 9 wickets

 Another high scoring game against Manland on a sunny breezy evening at Rothamsted but this time we lost.

Bailey (27) started the Crabtree run feast. Arnevitch and Reid went cheaply, then came the super-blaster,Newton(29n.o)  - only two sixes this time! Threlfall (28n.o) and Hale (30n.o) continued the strong batting with Hale providing the shot of the day -a reverse sweep. Parkinson (17n.o) and Boyd (25n.o) with Jenkins (8n.o) completed the innings at 191 for 3,our highest score ever off 20 overs.

Crabtree made a good start with Threfall 0-9, Bailey1-6 and initially Jenkins keeping the runs down but then Manland upped several gears and started smashing our bowlers all round the ground. Our fielding matched our bowling except for one catch on the boundary by Reid.Sears fended gallantly behind the stumps but it was not to be our day. Manland reached the target with 4 overs to go.

What an incredible evening - 383 runs off 36 overs.
