Ram won the toss and choose to bowl. It was a very bowler friendly wicket with copious amounts of swing and seam making batting difficult. We kept them scoring very slowly but they dug in. Eventually Reuben got the first wicket at 47 and from there the wickets tumbled- Reuben with three and George Wilson with another. A run out (Dhruv?) cut into them further and Yohan (1) and Yash cleaned up the tail, the latter claiming 4 with only 31 overs bowled using a 6 seam bowling attack giving away only 2 wides.
In response we knew it would be tough and chipped at the total very slowly but knowing we had the extra overs. Even though wickets did fall often every one got a start. Michael Shackleford, Yash (17), Yohan, George Wilson and Ram all getting double figures, the latter 3 going large at the end to finish the game on the 35th over.
