SPCC v London Fields

I wasn't at this game until the last few overs of it so the majority of this match report is second hand, please feel free to fill in any details if you were there...

From after match chat I'm told it was a game of two halves, or more accurately, a game in which both sides drinks breaks proved to be pivotal moments in their respective innings...

We batted first and openers Jon and Charlie have gone after the first three overs with both their opening bowlers taking wickets and by the end of the sixth we have slipped to 26-4 as Graham and Roni go cheaply. Adam and Sam Beighton provide the backbone of the innings with 62 and 53 respectively and Sam Freedman and Nick chip in with 14 and 19 each. We bat out the 35 overs having recovered to 173-8.

They begin their innings and Charlie and Colin open the bowling. Charlie starts with a maiden but we have to wait until the 8th over for a wicket when Graham makes the breakthrough getting his man caught behind by Jon, but we've kept it tight and they're going at less than four runs an over. Richard gets their other opener caught behind. Charlie finally gets a wicket in his 6th over again caught behind by Jon, giving him 3 catches in the game. Sam Freedman
