At tea, we felt we were in with a real chance. Suddenly, at 98/8 (23 overs) in reply, it wasn't looking so great. However, Wendel was on fantastic form, but needed support from the other end, which only Parky and Bicky were able to provide. Once Wendel was caught, on 99, with the score on 150, with 5 overs remaining, the game was effectively over. Bicky scored a patient 42 ball 9, Wendel a 66 ball 99, with 9 4's and 5 6's. 3 wickets for Paul, 2 each for Bicky and Kieran. We bowled well. Fielding was a bit hit and miss at times, but unfortunately our strong batting line up didn't quite fire today. Had Wendel had more support, the Hambledon score may well have been achievable....HL 163/10, 36.4overs.
HLCC 15/9/18: SteveM, Neil, Paul, Knobby, Adam, Bicky, Kieran, Swainy, Jim, Ian, Parky, Wendel.
