I’m going on a trip so here is a highlights/summary.

 

Highlights:

  • Lewis Bilbrough’s magnificent maiden hundred.  Increasing in pace, confidence and, dare I say, aggression.
  • An equally fine 73 from Naylor.
  • Not much else from a batting perspective.
  • The return of Bob Slatter, that apologetic giant Rohan franchisee.
  • Fine spell from the arch-strangler Howard Benjamin – 8-0-12.
  • Ably supported by the tricky Gough (8-2-24) and Kirk (8-2-45).
  • Weston was taken off for bowling 2-2-0-2 – yes, 2 wickets.  We can hardly have that on a Sunday.
  • Thompson was allowed to bowl 8 overs.  There were some actual deliveries.  And a wicket, courtesy of Benjamin’s catch sat on the fence at long off.  Thompson received much approbation from his travelling fan-base.
  • Christchurch’s Osbourne helped himself to a fine 77 not out.
  • We won.
  • Comfortably.
