An opening partnership of 130, with Nick Hill eventually carrying his bat for 176*; wickets for Killer, Nick Turner and Paul Vaughan; and a stunning catch on the boundary, all helped in securing Whitchurch’s first victory of the season.
Batting first Whitchurch scored 253 for 5
in their allotted 35 overs, with Nick Hill making it look effortless and
appearing to be batting on an entirely different track to everybody
else in the side. Thereafter, with a big total to chase, Checkendon
came out with the necessary guns blazing but inevitable lost wickets at a
Checkendon were eventual bowled out for 163;
Whitchurch winning by 90 runs.
