Ram lost the toss and Nether Whitacre choose to bat on a very hard dry track. Ollie Williams took an early wicket with an excellent spell of swing bowling. Their 2 and 3 dug in heavily and kept the score ticking over without really pushing on. All 7 bowlers did well to keep the runs down and they only got 184 despite only losing 3 wickets, Arjun taking 2 late in the innings.
Our first wicket went down on only 8 but after that there was no looking back. Michael Shackleford made a faultless 66* and Ram showed some ruthless big hitting unbeaten on 102 (12 fours and 2 sixes)
