Match Report

Despite starting in bright sunshine, unfortunately the match with Crathie was abandoned as a draw. A torrential rain shower brought an end to proceedings 14 overs into the Crathie reply. The match was abandoned as a draw. Batting first the District batted solidly with the bad ball being punished and the strike being rotated well. The runs were evenly spread amongst the top six with Richard Lewis top scoring with 57. After tea Jim Inglis and Brendon Hillyard bowled tightly and caused the batsmen to make mistakes. Three good catches and a run out had the District in the box seat just before the rains came

XL 187-7 decl (RM Lewis 57, DG Davies 39, R Waruna 38)
Crathie 55-5 (BG Hillyard 2-24, JGA Inglis 2-28)
