Hot hot hot!! The good weather continues for a must win game against bottom of the league Hoveringham.
Loosing the toss to bowl, Copey and Laughts started well on a lightning outfield and small boundaries.
First change brought James Kirkham to trap the opener LBW with perfect timing and Copey removing the other opener Caught and Bowled two overs later.
At 98 for 3 off 25, two crucial overs, Newbs drops one at gully of Kirkham, then Colin drops one off Aaman, this proves to be costly! Hoveringham put on a partnership of 92 to close in on 200, their tale wagged well ending with 247 for 8 off 48. A par score for the pitch and boundaries.
The ever-reliable Colin Cliff back in the side started well, Khan stayed fast but the rest of the batting failed to provide the support Colin needed everyone falling for under 20 runs.
Colin closed in on another century however in the final over a ball certain with the boundary is brilliantly feilded and left Colin on 99 not out and the team 209 for 8, just short boys. We will take the loosing draw but looking for more points next week.
Two drops lost the game in my eyes :(
