Cricket: Away trip ends in bore draw
Posted on June 14, 2011
The 1sts lost the toss and were put into bat on a good batting pitch at Biddenham CC.
Openers Hosking and skipper Norris got off to an excellent start with a partnership of 128 before Hosking fell for 62. Another strong partnership moved Bray onto 190-2 when James Flecknell was bowled for a well played 32, skipper Norris made the first Bray century of the season, as 68 was put on for the fourth wicket partnership and he continued to strike regular boundaries until he was out for 130 chasing quick runs, which allowed Bray to declare with only 40 overs bowled on a mammoth 272-4.
It was to prove too much for the home side, who as visits before show, soon after the beginning of their innings, batted for a bore draw despite the efforts of Bray's sharp fielding and bowling efforts of Pearson 1-24 from 8 overs, Flecknell 2-26 from 10 and 1-38 from Jarrett.
Number 3 Godfrey batted for most of the innings, falling in the final over for 94, as Biddenham closed out on 203-6, giving the 1st XI 18 points for their efforts.
