Low and Slow

In a low scoring game against Pangbourne, Whitchurch’s slow bowling undoubtedly made the difference.  With boundaries hard to find on a big ground with a wet grassy outfield Whitchurch were indebted to Andy Mutepfa for his patience and application in accumulating 66*, to post a competitive 126 for 5.

In reply, tight bowling from Whitchurch ensured that Pangbourne had the same problem in scoring runs and that they were soon behind the required run rate.  Thereafter a leggie master class from Matt Kilford, slowing the run rate down even further and taking two important, top order wickets in two balls, ensured that Pangbourne were never going to amass the necessary runs.

Whitchurch eventually ran out winners by 20 runs.
