Old Ranwellians v Bengal Tigers   

Monday 19 July 2010, Victoria Park
Old Ranwellians won by 5 wickets

Old Ranwellians won the toss and chose to field first

Bengal Tigers: 134 for 2 in 16 overs
Imeson 43
Hannon 35*
Cook 18
Ford 1-25 1-27

Old Ranwellians: 135 for 2 in 13.1 overs
Eaton 51*
Nash 28*
Hudson 22
Hicks 1-28
Cook 1-29

As a couple of their players were yet to arrive, it was agreed that Bengal Tigers would bat first. Ford broke the opening partnership with a delivery bowled perfectly to his field, after which the Old Ranwellians were frustrated and not able to take wickets as easily as they usually do.

Nonetheless the fielding side kept runs to a minimum with an excellent display in the field, restricting Bengal Tigers to 134 off 16. Hannon stuck around for 35*, and Imeson was denied a deserved half century after he skied to keeper Nash off Hudson.

Old Ranwellians opening pair Eaton and Hudson began the reply with something of an onslaught, as they found boundaries easy to come by on the small Pitch 1. Hudson was bowled for 22, but Ford (13) came in to keep the tempo up, before holing out to mid on.

Eaton flashed and fished his way to a first half century of the season, but his retirement saw 2 new batsmen at the crease, with 50 still required. Greening was in his element rotating the strike by ambling singles, with Nash showing off some of his newly acquired South African stroke play with a fine 28. The pair were relatively untroubled (aside from the occasional poor call) and saw Old Ranwellians home in the 14th over.

The result keeps Old Ranwellians' title dreams alive, and provided a welcome boost to their Net Run Rate which may yet prove to be crucial. Thanks to Bengal Tigers for a good game played in a friendly spirit, and good luck for the rest of the season
