Present XI clinch victory over Past XI

1 year ago By Timothy Abraham

A comfortable 51-run win over former players.

Carmel's Present XI clinched victory over the club's Past XI on the final weekend of the 2017 season.

The Past XI, skippered by Andrew Skates, put in a fine bowling display to restrict the current crop to 162 after they had won the toss and elected to field first.

Aussie all-rounder Nick White top scored as he retired on 54 while Present XI captain Alec Davies (32) and Dafydd Bailey (30) both made significant contributions.

Will Loveland (3-12) finished the pick of the bowlers for the Past XI as he took off the wicketkeeping gloves and polished off the tail with 3-12.

Leon Davies (2-3) and Bryn Morgan (2-31) secured noteable bragging rights over some of their former team-mates as they both picked up two wickets apiece.

Steve Jones (1-19) also got his name in the wickets column.

Danny Oliver (10) and Loveland (20) got the Past XI off to an impressive start with the bat after the lunch break.

The pair put on a sizable stand for the first wicket while Steve Swann (15) also chipped in.

However, the Present XI wrestled the initiative back as they blew away the Past XI middle order with Danny Owens (2-6), Alec Davies (2-6), and White (2-11) doing the damage.

Skates top scored for the Past XI with a quickfire 24 as he ensured they made it past the 100-run mark.

Dafydd Timothy (1-12), Gwion Dafydd (1-7) and Bailey (1-18) all claimed one wicket apiece before Jon Fisher (1-6) got the reward for a miserly spell with the elusive final wicket.
