1sts held to draw
Posted on August 6, 2011
In a bid to make it 4 wins in a row the Bray entertained fellow title rivals MK City in a 2nd vs 3rd place game. Batting first the Bray again got off to a good start as both Hosking (90) and Harris (56) combined to put on 114 for the 1st wicket before Harris played a rash shot. After that only Norris (16) got in to double figures and 175-4 with some 12overs to go soon became 193 all out with 4overs still to play and at tea the Bray looked a little light ith perhaps 230 being the least that could have been expected.
In reply City were almost immediately on the back foot as Norris (4-38) and Flecknell (3-24) got amongst the wickets and it was left to Tahir and P Heady to bat long in order to prevent the Bray taking all the spoils. At the end City finished 8 wickets down and the Bray were left to rue a no ball that saw Heady bowled with 12 overs still to go.
