Reddam House College v SO

Wed 19th April 2017 at 14.00
XL lost by 2 wickets
Played at Reddam House College, Bearwood Road, Wokingham, RG41 5BG

Match Report

For the 2nd Season running the XL Club lost the toss and were asked to bat first on a wicket that was damp and had not been rolled and which from the start resulted in the ball keeping very low. Despite losing a wicket in the first over  and regularly throughout our innings only John Thornton remained both patient and firm putting away the bad ball, but once he was dismissed the innings soon collapsed and XL was eventually bowled out 79. The Reddam College batsmen also found scoring runs very difficult with John Hawkins making earlier inroads taking 3 wickets but the dangerous Staples hit a rapid 27 before being stumped and despite the XL Club taking 8 wickets the score was not quite enough with the college scoring the winning runs with 3 overs to spare.
