South Africa Tour – Match Five

vs Scorpions CC

I know what you’re thinking – they’ve gone and lost again! All this promise and ambition and they keep losing. This time we actually started pretty well, with Kevin Bissett [21], Phil Deakin [85] and Jon Thornton [58] pushing the score board along but we were not positive enough at the very start and we fell away somewhat towards the end of our 40 overs. So we finished on 216 for 5 – not bad but . . .

The opposition opened with Andre Geldenhuys who has played some serious cricket in and around Hampshire, and at 3 had Dave Bakker who has played for Holland. So we were up against it, and eventually lost by 6 wickets and they still had 5 overs in hand.

It was great to be back at the Distell Cricket field again and the welcome and hospitality was more than generous. We were treated to wonderful food and wine and enjoyed our day tremendously.
See the photos below – its nice to see match officials being recognised for their selfless efforts.
