Quatt take 5 points from loosing Draw

What started somewhat damp and drizzling ended up in a game of 62 overs (31 each) of good cricket from both sides. Tea was taken at half 2 before the game started at 3. Terry Cowburn started the day by winning the toss (2 from 2) and jumped at the chance to insert Frankton to bat in what looked like bowler friendly conditions.

The opening spell of bowling certainly seemed to justify bowling first as Frankton ground their way to 42 from 12 tight overs from both the evergreen Barry Jones and Terry Cowburn, both of whom produced several play and miss shots from the Frankton openers. Jones struck first with an excellent LBW shout to Tom Cockayne. The second wicket came when 1st change bowler George Breakwell was introduced causing Jason Brookes to cut a ball to Cowburn at point. As the score pushed along Dave Powell produced a near changeless innings in compiling his 134, the only chance offered was put down by Quatt captain Cowburn when in the 90s. As the innings was coming to the end Frankton looked to push the score on to finish with 218-7 from their 31, with some excellent hitting from Powell as Quatt looked to claim valuable wickets. At the end of the inning Cowburn finished with 3/80 Breakwell with 2/33 and one apiece for Cotham and Jones.

In reply Quatt got off to a steady start moving to 23-0 off five over with D.Jones producing some fine shots. However after 10 overs Quatt had moved to a modest 31-2 having had both Jones and Hakeman (top edging on to his grille for the bowler to take a caught and bowled) removed in the space of 3 balls. This brought two new members of Quatt cricket club to the crease, both set about building an innings which could put Quatt into contention. Ian Biddle produced some fine shots to score 45 not out to support the lusty blows of Dave Street making a successful return to Quatt cricket club with 58 runs and 2 catches. Just as Street was starting to motor he edged one back to Lammie to bring Breakwell to the crease. As the overs wore on it was clear Quatt would be aiming to get to the loosing draw targets just missing out on the 70% for 2 draw points. The game ended with a 60-69% losing draw for Quatt taking 5 points to Frankton's 15.

Looking forward to next week, Quatt are looking to build on some positive performances in the first two games with some players returning to help boost the squad against Cound.
