Too few runs costs us in season's first T20
posted: May 30, 2018
Unfortunately we failed to get this season's T20 campaign off to a winning start when we took on the Battersea Bohemians at North Middlesex CC this evening. With gloomy conditions overhead, the match was reduced to 18 overs per side. However, having won the toss we committed the cardinal sin of failing to bat out our overs as, despite decent starts from Nick (29) and Viral (21), a collapse towards the end meant that we could only stumble to 104 before being skittled out.
In response we bowled and fielded sharply, claiming 5 well-taken wickets to dismiss some of the Bohos' bigger hitters along the way. Sadly however we never had enough of a total to defend and the oppo cantered home with 4 overs to spare.
