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.

Greenlane were sitting top of the table with Takapuna so the win was a good one, but only 3 points separates third from fifth. mlipponen | Namaste Publishing – Netticasino
