A match put back a week owing to the aftermath of local riots. TR won the toss and batted. Super opening spell by Parker put TR on the back foot, claiming the wicket of Kiddle.

Ames at the other end accounted for Daripa as TR were 2 down for 30 in the 5th over. Nikul Patel then started clobbering all the bowling around the ground in a rousing half century that contained 10 fours.

Wrong'Uns stuck at it and pegged TR down at the other end until James Douse and Gautam Jain struck some quality shots to get TR to 137-3. Bear was brought to the ground early in Wrong'Uns reply by (oddly) an errant throw from Randunne. In his dazed state he was unable to prevent a lovely inswinging yorker from Patel hitting the leg stump.

Bobby was deceived by Sachin Randunne's swing as well as spin, an inside edge leaving Wrong'Uns in trouble at 20 for 2. Randunne struck again soon after, Dave Joshi taking a neat catch to remove Kwong for 4.

James "dobbly" Douse entered the fray and bowled a tidy set of overs, removing Spike with a straightforward catch to keeper Richard Higginbottom. All this time, opener Nibble was building momentum, playing some lovely strokes all around the wicket and demonstrating a gift for timing the ball.

He retired unbeaten on 53 with a beautiful lofted drive that landed just inches inside the boundary. Parker and Ames hit out in pursuit but the light was gloomy and the target ominous enabling TR to run out winners by 31 runs.

A good match played in an excellent spirit.
