For the 5th game in a row, Regents CC arrived at Victoria Park with rain in the air. CDM Mortimer duly won the toss, and decided to bat. Some excellent new ball bowling by Cox was unrewarded, although Mortimer did need to retire injured after a low shooter ricocheted off the bottom of his bat and hit him in the eye.

Walsh joined Farmer-Carver, and the pair scored quickly to bring up 100. Once F-C had retied and Walsh was bowled, a chaotic end to the innings ensued, as the rain worsened and wickets fell, with new batsman tried to add to an already decent score on pitch 3, with 4 wickets (3 to Simon) falling in the final over.

The Morrocas' innings was cut down swiftly by Walsh and Appleby, two superb yorkers and two fortuitous played ons (one bat, one pads) meant they were 4 down after 4 overs, and by the time the opening bowlers had taken up their allocation, the Morrocas were 6 down.

The final pair put on a huge partnership, as Regents rotated the bowling around and spread the field to ensure a first win of the season. A couple of dropped catches and some missed runout opportunities didn't help, but the result was never in too much doubt after the initial bowling salvo at the start of the run chase.

A very enjoyable game despite the weather, here's to hoping for some sun at the next game.
