Winning start for the Wave
but the Skipper couldn't time an egg
Winning the first toss of the season Waverley skipper Wright put Shalford into bat and soon the visitors had their first wicket of the year, Torrey bowled Tempest. Graham and Lidster then dug in for 12 overs finding the ball difficult to get away particularly against some superb swing bowling from Malorie Short who eventually got her reward with 3 wickets. S Khan then came to the wicket with a watchful eye and began to pick off the bad ball. At the next bowling change Peter Brewer got in amongst the wickets and Shalford were all out for 94. After tea Waverley soon lost Chris Beanland to an excellent ball from Harding but here the wickets stopped as Ben Harris joined Jim Wright in a stand of 85 to wrap up the game in 14 overs.
