An excellent Sunday game saw Hythe unusually revert back to the old time game.
Braishfield won the toss and elected to bat first and thanks to 63 from James Light and 45 from Dick Travis they set Hythe a target of 203 in an hour and 20 overs.
Kev McCarthy picked up 3 wkts whilst there were 2 wickets a piece for Ben Holbrook & Steve Chiverton.
Jonjo Stovell opened the innings with Ryan O'Connor and the pair put on 166 for the 1st wicket. O'Connor made 58 before he was run out. His innings inc 6x4s.
But Jonjo's innings got stronger and stronger and his ton came up with the score on 180-1 which inc 11x4s. His 4th Hythe century. With the ton came Jonjo's retirement. with Hythe still needing 23 off 5 overs.
Dan Taylor opened with a massive 6 but was out for 12, Fraser Smith scored 12 before he was bowled with 3 required. A tense finish saw Hythe needing 2 off the final ball which Zac Moss did to earn a fine victory.
Many agree that Sunday cricket is falling apart however as long as there's sides like Braishfield around ~ theres still a lot to enjoy about the friendly game.
