6th XI v OLD WILSONIANS

By

Half Way There

We are now half way through the 2017 League season with only six games left to play. It is certainly looking like a two horse race at the top at the moment but of course, that can all change .

Following a two week lay-off from league action, the 6th XI returned to Loring Hall to play an Old Wilsonians side that had only played one league game, all others being conceded to them so a bit of an unknown quantity. The plan was to win the toss, put them in, bowl them out cheaply and get the runs…….we said that against OD Cuaco a couple of weeks ago and look what happened then!!
Winning the toss was a great start and Griggsy invited them to have a bat. Robbie Taylor and the skipper opened up the bowling attack and Robbie had by far the better end. At 17-3 things were looking good, Robbie having clean bowled the first three victims. At the other end some encouraging bounce saw the skipper beating the bat but the skill of the Wilsonian batsmen avoided them connecting with the cherry, we think! A great spell from Robbie finishing on 3-12 off eight overs. Harry Turner took over at the skipper’s end and Max Hallett the other. Max soon got stuck in with two quick wickets and 33-5 as we approached the drinks break. There was to be no let up as Harry T joined the fun with two quick scalps, both bowled and returning figures of 2-4 off five overs which included three maidens. Max took another one to finish with 3-3 off 6.5 overs also with three maidens. Mike Shelvey cleaned up at the end getting one to find the edge caught impeccably at gully by Neil Cleave. The other wicket was an outstanding one hand pick in the covers by Joe Howard who, in one flowing movement, took aim and threw the stumps down at the bowlers end for an exceptional run out. That is the standard expected in 6th XI cricket…..what a change there’s been in the last couple of years. 49 all out in 28.5 overs. Captains decided on no tea break, turn around and get finished. In 12.1 overs it was job done thanks to an unbroken partnership of 50 between Neil and Lucas Hart. Lucas obviously had his counting head on and managed to nick most of the strike. Hitting some good boundaries, the final four straight hit down the ground, he finished on 35 not out and Neil on 7 not out. A few extras made up the difference. A nice leisurely tea followed with enough time to get back to Manor Way to see the 1st XI put the finishing touches to their win against Hartley CC.
Another good day with the ball and once again no dramas in the fielding department. 20 points takes Bexley back to the top of the division but OD Cuaco are certainly the team to watch.

Off to Streatham and Marlborough next Saturday.
