5ths played at spring lane against newly formed erdington CC. A couple of late withdrawals saw both sides fielding 9’players…
Walmley won the toss and with good weather and a drying wicket walmley chose to bowl first.
The hosts got off to a good start, and reached 48-2 after 10 overs with a wicket for Salena Afzaal and run out from Dad Mo Afzaal.
Mo then came On to bowl and the game changed, with Mo taking 4-8 and Captain Darren yeates 1-24 leaving the hosts 81 All out.
In reply walmley made a steady start Julian Dexter top scoring with 36 (retired not out) and a mini collapse from 67-2 to 80–6 didn’t prevent walmley winning inside 24 overs.
Massive thanks to our hosts who pulled a team together at short notice to get a game played in good spirit, enjoyed by everyone.
