Remnants v The Philanderers, Wednesday 21st May at Fitzwilliam

Viewed from Suffolk border country this report is heavily reliant on the scorebook and therefore of necessity brief and sadly devoid of amusing anecdotal asides. However, I am certain that the midweek lads were determined to kick the opening match defeat dirt from their boots in this encounter with our oldest 20/20 opponents Remnants who won the toss and took first knock.

A 2nd wicket partnership of 84 was the backbone of the Remnants’ innings before achieving a reasonable total of 154 for the loss of 5 wickets at the end of the twentieth over. Our most successful bowlers were Josh Holmes 2/15 & Hugo White 2/36.

In response The Philanderers with an opening partnership of 66 were always ahead of the required scoring rate and after 16.3 overs a six from Nick Cox took the score to 159 for the loss of 4 wickets. The principle contributors were Tom Picton-Turbervill 45, Nick Cox 35no, guest Manish Berman 27 & Rob Gill 25.

A sound six wicket victory ensured that no dirt remained on anyone’s boots.
