Rusty Performance from 5ths East

Match Date: 22nd June 2019
Type: Warwickshire County Cricket League Division 13 East
Location: Douglas Ground
Report: Luke Marshall

Newdigate won toss and opted to field. A near 3 week break was telling and runs were hard to come by on a very slow wicket. We never really got going albeit for an impressive partnership between youths Yousuf Akbar (21) and Greg Rushton (15) whilst Luke Marshall (23) tried to keep it going further down the order. Bowled out after 29 overs with only 97 on the board. With the extra overs, Newdigate started solidly in their chase and even though we made an early breakthrough, they got the required runs within 17 overs. Henry Bennett (2-17) and Shayaan Tahir (1-32) picking up the only wickets so we at least got a point from the game.
