Indoor: 1st XI Double Up

Posted Mon, 22 Feb 2016 16:05 by Jono

First up Rainham faced 2nd-placed Ardleigh Green and chose to bat first. After a solid start from Jas (20) and Garnett, Jono (37) and Sully (25) got stuck into the bowling, with Biren chipping in a quick 14 before being run-out in a commanding total of 110. Green’s chase never really got going and good bowling from the Rainham spin attack of Sully and Biren sealed a 40 run win.

In the second game Rainham once again batted first against old foes Seven Kings, but did not find it as easy this time, posting 79, with Jas, Sid, Jono and Sully all reaching the teens but getting out. Biren Patel managed to go one better in this innings by getting himself run-out, then getting run-out when running for last-man-standing Sully. Some good bowling again restricted Seven Kings, but with 20 needed from 2 overs they managed 15 from Jono’s final over. Garnett bowled the last with only 5 needed to win and 2 wickets in hand, but some tight lines to a packed offside field meant Kings had to risk runs – but their risks failed and when Garnett obliterated the stumps for two run-outs, Seven Kings were dismissed 4 short of the target. Rainham are still in with an outside chance of the title if other results go their way.
