A highly competent performance from us today in a game reduced to 16 overs.
Jac batted fluently for his 25 punishing anything short. And Ben hit some good shots in his 14. With Charlie batting steadily at the other end for 27 it meant we had a great platform at halfway with the score 72-2. I suppose the only shaky phase in our innings was over the next 4 overs when we only managed another 20. There was a temptation to swing at everything rather than get bat on ball and a few too many dot balls crept into our play. But it's nitpicking really. Kieran (32no) joined Will (25no) and they put on 54 in just under 4 overs with some good shots and excellent running between the wickets.
148 was always going to be difficult to chase if we bowled decently and so it proved. Kieran and Alex opened up bowling tightly and restricted Camberley to just 13 off the first 4 overs. Suddenly the run rate was nearly 12 an over. Will, bowling a good line and length, took the crucial wicket of Stephens who batted well for his 36. Three times Will hit the stumps in his spell of 4-11 which demonstrated the virtues of being full and straight.
Toby then came on to mop up the lower order and tail with a really controlled spell of leg spin and the stunning figures of 2 overs 4-1 !
A good win against the only team to beat us last year - well done lads!
