Opening Weekend Double

by

Sam Skelding's Sunday 1st XI beat Dunchurch & Bilton by 6 wickets to complete a winning opening weekend for the Saturday and Sunday 1st XI's.

Dunchurch & Bilton won the toss and elected to bat first on an early season low bouncing wicket. They were soon in trouble from the first ball but the chance was dropped, however 3 balls later Waq removed him and this time the chance was taken.

The opening overs set the tone for things to come. Wickets fell regularly with the opening pair of Waq and Harry Tregonning taking 5 wickets between them and after 10 overs D&B were 24-4.

sam brady and Dale Gregory came on with Dale picking up a wicket and Sam bowling well in his 5 overs.

At 70-7, Aaron 'latif' Blackmore came onto bowl some 'looping' off-spin and where the term looping is used, it is used very loosely!! His bowling soon saw D&B's score move past the 100 mark as his 6 overs went for 47 runs picking up a wicket on the way.

kyle taylor picked up three wickets and and Waq took the final wicket in the 32nd over and Dunchurch & bilton were all out for 155.

Fillongley opened strongly with Pro and ian taylor opening the innings and they saw the first 10 overs through until tea was taken. Soon after Tea, Pro was out caught for 32 and Chris Terry joined Ian at the crease. CT didn't last long, missing a straight full toss and was bowled for 4 and then incoming batsman and skipper, Sam Skelding fell to his favourite shot sweeping a ball from outside off stump. Ian eventually fell for 44 and Waq and Aaron got the remaining runs to win by 5 wickets.
