Versus Much Wenlock 2nds


On losing the toss Allscott were asked to bat first on a sunny afternoon. The openers found it hard going on the slow paced pitch and soon found themselves three wickets down with not many runs on the board. It needed a partnership between Mick Churm (31) and Kevin Syass (52) to give their innings some momentum. With contributions from the other lower order batting they managed to get the total to 150 off their 40 overs.

After the tea break the Wenlock openers were punishing the occasional short bowling and making good headway at around 5 an over. The bowlers were finding hard to get many breakthroughs before the drinks break with only two wickets down and 75 on the board after 20 overs.

After the break the match ebbed an flowed either way. There was some very good feilding from Gaz Prescott who was in exceptional form and an amazing catch from Athar Ansari. Good spells of bowling from Lee Savigar and Kevin Davy, the latter missing a caught and bowled opportunity and getting hit on he head after the ball went through his hands. Fortunately his head was harder than the ball and he was able to carry on. All of this this meant the match was going down to the wire with 9 runs needed off the last over for Wenlock to win the match.

The final over of he game was a tense affair with Lee Savigar having the honour, so down to the last ball with 6 needed and Allscott got home with a winning draw and a really good game of cricket.
