A Beautiful day at Whitchurch CC 25
Degrees and full sun!
Whitchurch batted first on a slow wicket and very dry wicket that had been used twice before and after a solid opening stand with Jon and Grogie, Woody came in and blew away the Cholsey attack with a magnificent 114 no ably supported by powerful cameos from Tom (my head hurts Chappers) 29 and Scooby 31 no. WCC finished on 238 for 5 off 40 overs
Coldest reply was permeated by the regular loss of wickets and at one stage it looked we would bowl them out for 130 but they steadied and a strong 91 by Warren Ainsworth got them close - squeeky bum time again! But once he holed out off Grogie - (magnificent high catch by Jonny G) their batters could not keep up with the run rate with them finally falling short by 15 runs. Good bowling and fielding by all and well done Nick H, Francis, jonny G( who took a 3 fer) and Tommo.
Good performance today boyz - a good unit!
