|A Crushing Victory|
Saturday 1st XI versus Kingstonian
Putney 2's eventually ran out very easy winners over what proved to be a weak Kingstonian. They batted first and got off to a fine start against Grice and Jones who bowled vim but were well matched by some skillful batting. Ben Brook took some hammer but quickly turned 84-1 off 15 into 84-3 and, having recaptured the momentum, we never let it slip.
Stuart Gillies caught a straightforward
catch at midwicket, wisely not heeding the mid-catch advice that it was a sitter
and next ball Lincoln Grice took a super sharp catch at point. Though their
number five played well, they had little depth in batting and so struggled
against a very straight spell from Murad. Lincoln removed their 5 in his second
spell. Kingstonian added 33* for their last wicket.
