The Indoor A-team turned in a fine batting performance to chase down 108 and beat a very good Seven Kings outfit.
With captain Jas Hothi tied to a lamppost in one of Prague’s numerous seedy alleyways, Skipper stepped into the breach and won the toss, putting Seven Kings in. Wickets were shared around, with Tyler, Abdal, and Skipper taking one each and a couple of run-outs, but the tide of runs wasn’t stemmed as Kings reached 3 figures.
Sid (43 not out) made his usual positive start and with Sully (45) also contributing a big score, Rainham were able to chase down the imposing target with 2 balls to spare for a brilliant run chase.
Tom Herbert led out Rainham B against East Ham, who put up a very good score of 93. Tyler picked up 2 wickets and Abdal and Warren took one apiece.
Despite some heroics with the bat from Abdal with 22, Tom’s side were restricted to just 50 in response. Warren and Tyler were the only others to get into double figures.
Rainham C were also in action and put up a competitive 73 batting first. Captain Nick Thwaites proved his indoor credentials, scoring 27 unbeaten, and Ben Little chipped in with an accomplished 14.
In reply Seven Kings didn’t hang about, smashing the runs in 7 overs including 25 in one particular over from Warren Courtney. Daniel Courtney saved the family’s reputation with a tight couple of overs.
