The T20 team tonight got their season underway with a match vs Tarleton at The Rec.
After a horrible thunderstorm which threatened whether the game would even go ahead, both teams were committed to playing.
WLDCC lost the toss and were asked to bat.
It was a below par 88 total that came off 18.3 overs. Kurt Hilton top scored at the top of the order with 21, and only 3 others joined him in double figures, with a rear guard 12 from Ben Crompton giving the score a boost at the end!
It was always going to be difficult to defend, especially against a strong Tarleton team, and so it proved.
Opener Eldridge was the pick of the Tarleton batters with 37, ably assisted by Thompson with 21.
The pick of the WLDCC bowlers were Nazife with 1-16, and a tight spell of 0-12 off 3 for Paladiwala.
