Cricket: Peacock winning streak continues
Posted on April 28, 2009
Eaton Bray Sunday XI (or 10 for this game) constinued their winning streak in 2009 to 2 games by beating old rivals Potten End on a bright sunny day (though only mildly warm).
Having arrived at tea due to a prior engagement your reporter found the Bray had won the toss and batted first. With a strong looking batting line up, a decent total was virtually assured. So a total of 212 for 5 from 35 overs was about what the skipper would of been looking for. *Some additional info from those there would be useful for accuracy here!!*
Having consumed a fine tea shortly after my arrival the Bray took the field. Potten End's combination of big hitters and talented youngsters proved a decent match for Bray's varied attack. However, some good outfield catches by Hosking (3 of them) and some good glove work by debutant Paul Darts (2 stumpings) kept the runs in check. Potten End eventually being bowled out off the last ball of the game for 185. The wickets were shared around, Coughtrey, Norris and Roff all 1 each, Peacock and Jones 2 and Flecknel Jnr 3, all point to some decent form leading into the first league games next week.
Mention must be made of Jake Barker's 4 overs, looking much more menacing than his old man in 2008, he was unlucky not to get any wickets, though he also had his fair share of tea, so he had a good day!!
-- Tea is my favourite
