Old Ranwellians won by 6 wickets
Old Ranwellians lost the toss and were put into field
Regents: 107 for 5 in 16 overs
Old Ranwellians: 108 for 1 in 14.2 overs
A stand out performance from stand in skipper Alex Hudson secured Old
Ranwellian's second victory of the season. Regents batted first, with tight
bowling as ever from Ford (1-22) and Eaton (1-24) restricting the rate.
The shackles came off a little for Regents, which helped them boost
their total to 107 off the allotted 16 overs, but they were pulled back by
tight bowling from Hudson, who claimed 3-12 off 3 overs, including 2 smart
stumpings from Mark Dewhirst.
Hudson was in magnificient form with the bat, crashing boundaries
alternated with clever rotating of the strike. Whilst an out of form Eaton
(13) swished aimlessly outside off stump until successfully nicking behind,
Hudson showed off his full repertoire of strokes.
Hudson completed his well deserved 50 after being joined by Ford
(19*), who began to find some form after a scratchy start including hitting
the winning runs. Thanks to Regents for a fun game played in a jovial
spirit. Good luck for the rest of the season
