Old Ranwellians v Regents

Monday 8 August 2011, Victoria Park
Old Ranwellians won by 6 wickets

Old Ranwellians lost the toss and were put into field

Regents: 96 for 7 in 15.5 overs
Dinesen 34
Hudson 3-32 Greening 2-22

Old Ranwellians: 97 for 1 in 12 overs
Eaton 39*
Ford 34*
Salmon 1-34

Old Ranwellians lost the toss once more and were asked to bowl first. Ford and Greening opened the bowling, and were incredibly tight; once they had bowled through their overs, Regents were a meagre 39-3 off 8.

Ford picked up one of those wickets (and was bowling so well he deserved more), and Greening got 2, including one that made up his 2nd wicket maiden of the season. After the innings had been strangled it was left to Hudson to pick up some cheap wickets with his incomprehensibly successful medium paced pies, with Eaton also getting in on the act to mop up the final wicket, with Regents all out for 96.

Only Dinesen offered much resistance for his 34, and Linay was the only other player to reach double figures (12) Needing around 6 an over for victory, Old Ranwellians didn't need to get out of second gear, as Eaton and Hudson casually stroked the ball around picking up 1s and 2s to maintain the required rate.

Hudson fell holing out to 3rd man, but Eaton (39*) showed off his full array of strokes to continue his recent excellent form, and was joined by Ford whose rapid 34* included one huge 6 over the biggest boundary on pitch 2.

Salmon was the bowler to pick up the 1 wicket to fall as Old Ranwellians comfortably reached their target with 4 overs to spare. Walsh was the pick of the bowlers though, bowling with good pace and bounce to trouble Eaton at times, and in an 11 a side game would certainly have picked up a few wickets with a compliment of slips.

Instead he was left frustrated, as so often is the case in this league.
