Brockham Green 2nd Xl v Westcott on Sat 21 Aug 2010 at 1.30
Brockham Green Won by 101 runs
Dawn broke early, but was quickly swept under the verdant carpet that is the Fortress of Brockham Green CC. Two more games left and the tension is mounting as valuable points are needed – maximum 40 pointers that is. Draws and limp lily livered wins are not acceptable.
It started off very well for the Horde as Bob and Jeff got a credible 29 each. This was however, over shadowed by a fantastic 89 from Darryn who suddenly turned on the heat and showed his stuff. A respectable 227 was put on the board.
Westcott’s reply was faltering as Andy tore into the openers claiming 5 lives in the process. He was ably assisted by MikeS who accounted for another 3 victims.
It was at this point that the batsmen started to complain about light levels; this was thankfully quickly dampened by their own Skip and Mr no-nonsense himself, Umpire extraordinaire Tom Oulton.
With the overs running out and the final batsmen hanging in on for dear life; it was looking like a possible draw was on the cards. Then, a loose swing from the batter and a fluted ball high towards covers: Jeff, against all odds and previous experiences, took a fantastic backwards jumping single-handed catch. To say that the team were stunned and shocked was an understatement; all hell broke loose.
The remaining batsman was very quickly rounded up and unceremoniously dumped: Brockham outright winners with max points – again!
Come on if you think you're hard enough!
