Camden 201-6 d

WCC 116-6

Match drawn


A day more for the connoisseur than the instant thrill-seeker.


The Weekenders bowled and fielded tightly until the last twenty minutes of Camden’s innings when we got a bit of a caning from their first team players, especially Andy Brown, who made about 130 of their runs in sparkling style. The pro Shoaib Khan retired hurt after over-eager consumption of pies.  Perhaps Camden batted a shade too long, but that was fair enough on what’s usually a 220 par pitch.


WCC had a poor start, losing Chiari first ball and never got going after that. Camden’s bewhiskered Yorkie pegged us back with a flinty five-for, gleaned from slow turners that came to earth with frozen acid rain on them, and we were always way off the pace.  Lyons and Dunne, a shedload of experience under their respective belts, saw out the draw in entertaining style – Dunne being dropped off three consecutive deliveries.  No hard feelings.
