The season ends for the Scotland District

The season ends for the Scotland District

The season ended among the rolling hills of Perthshire. It was a great game at Rossie Priory. Batting first the District posted a very competitive 145 – 7 declaring at tea. The innings was built round a fine fifty from Dinesh Bailwal (54) with Lucas Farndale (30) and Raj Waruna (28) contributing also. In the field Rossie had three Forty Club members guesting and Kevin Ferrie and Colin Neill each picked up a wicket. Kevin’s was caught by Colin and Colin’s was caught by Kevin!

After tea Rossie started slowly against penetrating bowling from Sandy Baird and John Cameron (2-14). Brendon Hillyard (2-10) also bowled a fine spell and with an hour and a half to go  Rossie needed 100. There was then a twenty minute rain break which meant that there would only be ten or so overs left before close. In fact 12 were bowled but the Rossie batsman gave it a real go and the match was won with a single off the last ball as Rossie won by four wickets. A fine end to the season.
XL Club 145-7 (D Bailwal. 54, L Farndale 30)
Rossie Priory 146-6 (S Tait 62)
