Oh what an utterly sublime setting; our trip to Brockwood Park to play the most affable White Hunters is definitely one of the highlights of any Racqueteers season.
The evening was perfect after a long hot summer’s day and with skipper Mike F winning the toss and electing to bat the scene was set…
The skipper and the Professor set up a great base for the middle order to build on, with both getting retired on 30 in quick time.
A classy 23 from Gaurav and hard-hitting middle order innings’ of 30 from both Paddy & Harry ensured a fine score of 168 for 1 was posted.
In the field our excellent form continued spear-headed by our President, Mike C who produced a superb spell of beautifully accurate swing-bowling taking 3 wickets for only 4 runs!
Ably supported by Lawrence (‘Head of Salmon’) and Mike F – 2 wickets apiece – plus a wicket from the ever-reliable Chris & a comprehensive 67 run win victory was completed.
We then enjoyed recounting our win in the pleasant garden of The Fox at Bramdean with a drink and much needed sausages & chips.
A great evening. Well played chaps!
