12 July 2017 – TTP v Phoenix at Barrington
TTP won by seven wickets (but we played on anyway)
Again there is not much to say – certainly when it comes to describing our innings.
We just couldn’t get going on a green strip enjoyed by skillful and accurate bowling and they had little problems knocking off our paltry total.
Still, positives were not hard to find as our top scorer was our youngest batsman, with Peter hitting an aggressive 16 to become the second youth product to graduate to the team.
As it was such a glorious sunny evening we played on for the full game anyway to give them a bat and us a bowl. And we were treated to two wickets in as many balls by Damon the Leg-spinner (who almost got the hat-trick too) plus Gareth’s ‘bet you can’t hit the lamp-post off me’ wager in the last over (couple of near misses).
