4As end pre-Xmas season on a high
December 20 match versus Greenlane
The 4As finished the first half of their one-day season on a high, bowling out Greenlane in 23.5 overs for 130.
Elliott Molesworth showed that old age and general unfitness counts for nothing, with his 4/14 off 5, bowling with a piece of soap in a rain-affected match.
Chasing the total, in a game reduced to 35 overs, things got pretty hairy until a last-wicket stand by Steve Thompson and Colin Watson of about 30 – we would tell you exactly how many except these boys don’t fill out their CricHQ scorecards for anyone.
During that, Steve and Colin survived a massive LBW shout with the team nine wickets down “saved by multiple noises – bat, laces, ball” says Colin.
The pair then ran a bye with a few overs left, for a win in the 32nd over – 131/9.
