Frensham beat Waverley
A much changed Waverley fall 13 balls short of forcing the draw against a strong Frensham side
Opening batsmen Tom Charman and Peter Chuter put on 98 before Charman was caught on the boundary with the lion’s share of 75. Steady partnerships applied more pressure to the visitors until the Rowledge 1st captain came in and smashed the Waverley bowlers for 53 before being retired by the Frensham skipper Adam Page. A few more runs were scored and the home side declared on 250 at tea. Stuart Webb and Jim Wright put on 92 and it looked game on until Webb holed out, well caught by Lloyd. Wright went soon after on 72 before skipper Page brought himself on to bowl and that’s when Waverley’s trouble started. 6 wkts for 25 runs later and it was all over, the travelling side falling short by 41.
