Rain prevents Westgate win over Division 2 strugglers Trimpell

Where's Duckworth Lewis when you need it...

The cricketing Gods certainly weren't at Cross Hill Park today as Westgate A were denied a win because of the rain halting play. Captain Dave Hannigan won the toss and went against what he usually does by choosing to field first in mainly sunny conditions with some cloud cover at the time.

Trimpell got off to a reasonably slow start to their innings. This was thanks to tight bowling from opening bowlers Elliot Chapman (2-31) and Jacob Vaughan (1-10) along with Westgate being really sharp in the field. Trimpell's openers M.Baldwin (15) and P.Thompson (27) put on 39 runs for the first wicket, but it took them nineteen overs to get to this score. A wicket was long-awaited for Westgate, and they finally got the breakthrough when Elliot Chapman bowled Baldwin in the nineteenth over. This was the first of many wickets for Westgate. Trimpell's middle order struggled - scoring only nineteen runs in the following eleven overs and losing a further four wickets to take their score to 58-5. S.Beniston (0) and C.Smith (0) both went cheaply and fairly quickly. Beniston was Chapman's second victim as was Smith for De Silva (2-16), who put in a very good shift with the ball. Thompson (27), who batted well for Trimpell, fell victim to De Silva whilst James Lambert (7) was run out by a brilliant pinpoint throw at the stumps by Chapman. Trimpell's number six batsmen D.Cooke (7) batted reasonably well for Trimpell, frustrating Westgate's bowlers. He was finally bowled out by Griffiths (4-6) in the 33rd over. Griffiths had another great spell of bowling, also claiming the wickets of Michael Bland (1), R.Cope (4) and the final batsman Peter McDermid (1). Trimpell's slow run rate continued throughout the duration of the innings, with tail-ender Sam Antcliffe (1*) scoring just one run from 27 balls. They came very close to batting for the whole 45 overs but McDermid was out bowled by Griffiths in the first ball of the final over. This meant that Trimpell found themselves 73 all out.

Westgate's Chris Carter (24*) and Jacob Vaughan (5*) got the hosts off to a very good start after tea, scoring 30 runs in the first seven overs - leaving them with just 44 more runs to get from the remaining 38 overs. Carter's innings included two fours, and there probably would've been many more from the in-form batsman but the rain kicked in and the two sides were forced to leave the field and put the covers on. After roughly an hour of waiting, the rain never stopped and unfortunately the game was abandoned meaning that the two sides shared the six points.

It was very disappointing for Hannigan's side as they looked highly likely to take twelve points today to put them further up the Division 2 table.

Next up for Westgate A is neighbours Bare away from home next Saturday.
