Sewerby CC v Cutthorpe Cricket Club 20/20 Tour Game Match Report
The Twenty20 game was another chance for the tourists to have a bat first in the time honoured tradition, but the hosts were having none of it having drafted in players and batting first. This was one game too many for the holidaymakers even with the fresh blood influx of Linnie, Rob Thorpe and Matt Cluer, Gold had missed his flight and would probably arrive on Friday. The home team smashed the ball to all parts being especially severe on floaty leg-stump full tosses as they compiled 176. A late re-jig of the batting order after lightweight Plested went down with side cancer meant that Cluer and Thompson opened the batting. Cluer had travelled the 117 miles only to pat one back to the bowler for a scabby 5 that Bushy remarked he could have hit into next week - poor shot really. Thommo batted the full 20 overs in making 80 out of a total of 130 as the team came up short.
