The Greatest Draw Ever Achieved

In ever decreasing light, Whitchurch’s final wicket (Kilford & Kilford) valiantly held off the might of Bradfield’s bowling attack until the inevitable rain arrived and the match ended in a draw.  True, but oh how misleading;  Bradfield were better in all departments other than the scorebook!!.

A second-wicket partnership of 170 took Bradfield to an impressive score of 206 for 4 at tea and thereafter Whitchurch limped to 52 for 9 when the rain arrived.  Whitchurch’s highlight was Matt Kilford’s contribution with both bat and ball - three overs at the death for very little and a wicket, and a straight bat until the rain arrived.

After the match Matt Kilford said: “If the old man hadn’t given so many away when he bowled I could have gone for the win”

Editor: Which ‘old man’, with so many to choose from, is he referring to?
