2nds Fall Short In Run Chase vs Hammerwich

The Sunday 2nd XI set off on their first league outing of the season with a little trepidation, containing a new captain Mihir, and five new unknown players.

Hammerwich 2nds batted first and with the aid of a fast outfield and a few pieces of indifferent fielding reached 237 for 8.

With wickets for Srini 3, Nabeel 2, Knowles 2 and 1 for Maruthi.

An excellent opening stand of 61 in quick time between Nabeel (30) and Kasim (26) got us of to a good start, followed by a solid 49 from Maruthi. Unfortunately no one else got past 16, until an unlikely hero in Nick Palmer scoring a quick fire 24 just failed by about 10 runs to get us past the target (227 for 9).

This was an enjoyable game, and hopefully bodes well for the second elevens league season.
