Match report: Agricola 21/05/17

Amid beautiful weather, Agricola were put into bat first and scored 163 runs from their 35 overs.


Some good bowling was displayed by Godfather and Sparkie to begin with and continued by Yakub (guest) and Genie.


Tuffers and Smartie opened the batting, but the Vicar had to go into bat quickly as the partnership had not lasted long.


To be fair it was a tough wicket to bat on as it had rained almost the entire week previously, the wicket was wet and the ball was not coming onto the bat at all.


Meet went in to bat at number four and scored a few runs. Yakub played a good innings and had hit three consecutive sixes but was out a few bowls after.


With 163 runs to chase, the Nomads were 133/4 and had 30 more to chase with almost 13 overs left to be played.


The match changed all of a sudden as wickets fell in quick succession. The match was over in short order as the hosts were bowled out for 152, 10 runs short of the visitors' total.


It was a good game and all the guest players really played well; their efforts in helping us to get a team out were appreciated.
