Match 8 (15th scheduled), 2016: July 20

Battersea Bohemians CC vs Pimlico Strollers CC

Thrilling climax as Strollers seal T20 triumph over Bohos
posted: July 21, 2016

Bohemians vs Strollers (20 July 2016)The relief was palpable last night in sweltering conditions at North Middlesex CC where we notched up our first T20 win of the season in an absolute thriller against the Battersea Bohemians, with the tiniest possible margin of victory — a single run! Batting first we only managed to post a modest 129-8 from our allotted overs, helped largely by a solid rearguard action led by Tom Harvey who hit a vital 32.

However, we once again fielded superbly and with Viral and Kashif leading the charge with a blistering opening spell that claimed four early wickets we had the Bohos rocking back on their heels. A powerful knock from McCaskill brought the oppo back into the game, though, and with just three runs required for victory with one over to go, it seemed likely that our fine efforts would sadly end in vain. However a miserly final over from Spencer cost us only a single wide and, when Botterill was run out on the last ball of the match, the closely set field erupted in celebration as we snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Incredible stuff!
