Lucey again in the runs as 2s beat Rogerstone

Covers and sun make for lots of runs

On a day of glorious sunshine bookended by heavy rain Rogerstone's covers did the job to get the game on. A damp patch just back of a length made for a slightly tricky opening plus a damp and slow outfield first up, but WHCC took their option to bat first on what otherwise looked a hard dry wicket.

Awais Chouhdary and Gareth Lucey again got Whitchurch-Heath of to a good start in conditions and against bowling where hard work was needed. Once Alex Webb came to the crease at the fall of the second wicket WHCC began to accelerate. Hard running, blows down the ground and some savage pulling of the spinners saw Webby and Gareth put on 136 for the 3rd wicket in 21 overs. Good finishing from Dave Reynolds and Daham Perrera got Whitchurch-Heath to 244-4.

Massive tea. Webb struggled with the final apple pie on his 3rd plate.

Rogerstone's openers came out and took advantage of the drying outfield with a strong opening stand. M Goddard in particular finding success despite Whitchurch thinking they had the early breakthrough with a caught behind. But when Mohit Bhagarva did get him Whitchurch managed to get some control of the match again and push the required run rate beyond Rogerstone's reach. The attempt to get wickets saw the opportunity for runs to still come, Hopcraft taking the brunt. But on a wicket, despite the early difficulties, that didn't offer much, only 9 wickets were to fall all day, a 17 point haul was a satisfactory return. Does it prompt a debate for #uncoveredpitches?
