Tower Hamlets College won by 74 runs
Old Ranwellians won the toss and chose to field first
Tower Hamlets College: 168 for 7 in 15.4 overs
Old Ranwellians: 94 for 6 in 16 overs
Old Ranwellians meekly gave up any hopes of winning Division 3 with an
abysmal all round performance on Monday night.
A terrible first over from skipper Greening set the tone as the belligerant
THC openers began their onslaught. Poor bowling coninued to dominate,
punctuated by even worse fielding.
There were some bright points for Old Ranwellians, with the occasional
delicious delivery from Greening and Ford in particular, who claimed 2
wickets apiece. Eaton, Scoltock and Field (his first, and hopefully not
last, in competitive cricket) were also amongst the wickets, which fell
reglarly before a specacular tail wag for the 7th wicket for 40 priceless
runs turned the contest on its head, and allowed THC to set an imposing
target of 168.
Old Ranwellians, as ever, struggled to find the boundary with the regularity
required to case down such a large target. Altough the running between the
wickets was very good, it was never likely to accrue enough runs to worry
In the end only Ford and Price shone with the bat, making 36 and 15
respectively. And in fairness to the opposition, they were lively in the
field, making very few mistakes, which coupled with their accurate pacy
bowling, made Old Ranwellians even more difficult than it was.
They are very worthy champions, easily the best side we've faced in this
division, and have our congratulations
