Lost Batting Second

Away | Saturday 10 Jun 2017
The Shotts travelled to title contenders Fernhurst, looking to continue the recent peak in form. Returning to duty, Skipper Sampson won the toss and elected to field. The hosts opening partnership was a slow burner, restricted by all rounder Gregory (13-3-51-3) and Brophy (8-1-31-0).

17-0 after 10 overs, Charman (51) and Allen (44) looked to accelerate the run rate, punishing the first change bowlers and dispatching the ball around the ground. One of the highlights of the afternoon – Toby Joyce losing his sunglasses in a bush whilst trying to retrieve a ball!

As the field spread, Grayshott contained the run-rate to 4 an over, taking wickets at crucial times in the innings. Lang leading the way with 14 overs straight for 43-2.

A flourish of boundaries in the penultimate overs took Fernhrust to 214, leaving the visitors an achievable target in their allotted 45 overs.

The chase didn’t start well at 18-2, with both Wheble (0) and Kriehn (0) failing to trouble the scorers. The introduction of Baker (16) and vice captain McBain (46) steadied the ship, capitalising on anything vaguely loose and maintaining the required run rate.

McBain in form, elegantly driving and powerfully pulling, fell just short of his half century (Jug avoidance again). Baker judged LBW prompted a flurry of wickets, leaving the Shotts in a precarious positon of 98-8.

With 15 overs remaining, H Ward (62) was holding the fort well, showing maturity and discipline whilst still dominating with his trademark aggression. Unfortunately the Shotts fell short at the final hurdle, with Ward edging to slip in the 42nd over. 166 all out.

Once again, a charismatic team performance from a 2nd XI against a 1st XI side. Harting at home next week and a must win game.
