Old Ranwellians v Best Nationals       

Tuesday 15 June 2010, Victoria Park
Old Ranwellians won by 27 runs

Old Ranwellians won the toss and chose to bat first

Old Ranwellians: 113 for 7 in 15 overs
Hudson Culley Eaton

Best Nationals: 86 for 7 in 14.3
Greening 3-11

Old Ranwellians won the toss, and on the back of their improved form with the bat, elected to bat. Hudson and Eaton opened and got off to a good start, until Eaton fell for 17. Then wickets fell at a regular rate, although Hudson batted well for 30, fixing rotating the strike with some powerful shots. Culley scored 20, with the shot of the day going to Ford for an utterly orgasmic cover drive.

In the end though the ORS efforts with the bat were weak, and they were all out for 113. Tight opening bowling from Eaton and Culley restricted the score to 50 after 8 overs, although Best Nationals had wickets hand as they only took a wicket a piece.

Excellent off spin from Greening (3-11) kept the pressure on, and with support from Ford, who also claimed a wicket, meant the Best Nationals ended on 86, giving Old Ranwellians their first win of the season In the end the only difference between the sides was tight bowling and some superb fielding from Old Ranwellians.

With a little more experience Best Nationals should be good competitors in the VPCCL, and played the match in a much better spirit than we'd found in recent matches
