This was a bit like Deja vu from the 1st game as Harrison bowled their opener first ball and Joe bowled a wicket maiden but we still gave away 33 in wides/no balls and 8 byes helping them pile up a big score. Two wickets each for James and Tom dragged the scoring back somewhat as they finished on 298-6. Unfortunately Harrison and William were out 5 times in their 4 overs, with 3 clean bowled in 1 over from their quick opener. Joe again hit some great shots making 26 not out adding 30 with Luca to take us to 224 at half way. James hit 2 boundaries in his 12 but was out twice and Oliver made 12 not out pushing us up to 251 with 4 overs to go. Will hit a nice 14 not out and Tom made 7 but was also out twice this time meaning we finished on 273-10, only 25 runs short. We certainly have a talented team but there is much work to do to improve the consistency of bowling straight and the ability to keep out a good straight ball rather than trying to slog it into the leg side.
We now move on to the Summer League with games on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.
