Drummond Trinity through to Next round of Terry Newcombe
Drummond Trinity batted first on a warm evening on the arti at Inverlieth Park.
They managed 105- 9 off their 20. 3 wickets for Chris Banks and a run out, 2 for CJ and a great catch from skipper David were highlights for Woodies. A good effort in the field ....
Woodies got off to a slow start losing the Wildman and keeper Shreyas both out for ducks in the second over.
Banksy was next out for 5 but Steve (35) and Beesy (20) batted well together before getting out in the 15th with the score at 69-5.
Graeme and Al came in needing 7 an over off the last 5 overs. They kept to that rate with 10 off the 16th , then 4 off the 17th but disaster struck in the 18th when Big Al was bowled for 3. Skipper David (3) and Phil (0) were both run out chasing the game.
Woodies needed 12 off the last over with Graeme facing and CJ at the other end.... a single off the first ball then a wide from Imran, meant 10 off 5 balls, CJ then connected for 4 runs so 6 off 4 needed. A dot ball then a scrambled bye when the keeper fumbled, 5 off 2...
Graeme managed a single leaving CJ needing a boundary to win .. He connected well but with a defensive deep field set they only managed to run 2..
Woodies end up 1 run short and exit the cup!
An exciting finish but disappointment at falling short of a total that should really have been chased down....
