Billesdon ease to 7 wicket win

James and Dave in big patnership

Veteran Baz Tailor took 2 early wickets as C'thorpe struggled to make best use of a good track and lightening fast outfield. Chris Elliott generated pace as Will and James dug in. A mix up accounted for Will, run out for a useful 31. Dave joined James and after a period of consolidation, both upped the rate, passing 50 and adding a total of 115 for the 5th wicket. James finished on 68 not out and Dave 65 not out in a total of 222 Whilst watching the footy, it was decided we needed to be on top of our bowling and fielding to have a chance of 25 points

Harrison and Nourish set off in pursuit, the odd fortunate boundary could not mask the fact that generally they were in control. Once the ball had beaten the fielder 4 runs were usually the result. Skipper Craig changed the bowling at regular intervals, but with little avail. The 100 partnership arrived after 23 overs when at last Tom Muggleton enduced an edge from Harrison who departed for 56 Chand struck some good blows before James snapped him up well caught by Dan.

Skipper Tom Miles looked in good form as 200 came up in the 38th over, Nourish had played well and was looking for his ton, but runs were running out. Dave caught a good catch running back at cover to give Thorpey a deserved wicket, but Elliott came in and made short work of the remaining runs finsihing the game with a big 6 into the field. A 7 wicket win for Billesdon with nearly 5 overs spare gave them sweet revenge for the opening day defeat
