Cricket: Close...but no cigar
Posted on June 30, 2011
Another difficult day for the 2nds as having batted first on a two paced wicket they subsided to 117 all out from 41 overs. Several batsmen got in, with Gypps getting to 30 before getting caught and bowled and Smith 14 before holing out at fine leg, but aerial shots proved the undoing for others as Wilden held their catches.
In reply the game reached quite a climax as Wilden having lost eight wickets limped over the line, in one of the overs gifted by the Bray. McCarthy with 3-19 proved the pick of the Bray bowlers, but in a tight game the bowlers giving up 12 wides and 7 no-balls between them, gave the oppo too much assistance.
