Trull v Belstone

Ryan's four consecutive sixes and 38 off final two overs helps Belstone win

Trull near Taunton was the venue for the second tour game, a 35 over affair the first half of which was sportingly played by the hosts in wind-swept heavy drizzle. With the batting order reversed from the previous day, Belstone made a much better start with Phil Dennis (21 with a six and two 4s) and Pearce (37 with two 6s and five 4s) adding 62 in eight overs for the first wicket. Richard Drake (59 off 47 balls with seven 4s and two 6s) and Matt Dennis (21 from 15 balls) kept the score ticking along nicely but the fireworks really began with the arrival of Fogerty when the score had reached 171 for seven in the 27th over. He reached his fifty with his fourth six from just 28 balls and then retired, but even this was eclipsed by No 10 Ryan Dennis. He faced just seven balls for 27 not out, having deposited four consecutive full tosses from Paul Farthing over the long-on boundary for six – probably the most explosive ever display of hitting by any Belstone batsman. 104 runs came from the final ten overs with the last two overs going for 38. Ed Barrett was the best Trull bowler, finishing with four for 46 from his six overs while the luckless Farthing conceded 76 from his seven overs.

Trull weren’t fazed by the daunting target of 269 for victory as openers Luke Bishop and Olly Barrett hit 46 off the first five overs and their partnership had reached 60 before Ryan Dennis bowled Bishop for 33 off 17 balls, with five 4s and a six. Sam Pike joined Barrett and they doubled the score to 125 before Pike was well held at deep midwicket by Phil Dennis off Walpole for 21. Barrett kept Trull in the hunt to such an extent that by the time he was caught by Matt Dennis off Drake for a fine 68 with the score on 155 in the 27th over, they were actually ahead of the equivalent score in Belstone’s innings. That momentum couldn’t continue, especially when Phil Dennis bowled three late overs taking two wickets for five runs, so even though Jerry Palmer made a run-a-ball 30 not out the innings finally finished 53 runs short, to give Belstone a one hundred per cent winning record for their tour.
