Sutton Coldfield 2nd XI vs Walmley 3rd XI @ Rectory Park
Walmley won the toss and decided to bowl. An excellent all round effort in the field restricted Sutton to 164 all out! Notable bowling performances from Duncan Waugh (3), Scott Pepper (3), Mo Salman (2) and Charlie Yeates who was unfortunate not to get a wicket!
A solid start from openers Arman Dubb and Kaash Patel saw off the opening bowlers, but after 20 overs we found ourselves 53-7. It was always going to be a struggle from there to get close to the target despite some late resistance from the lower order, with Duncan Waugh top scoring (29). All out for 96.
Plenty of positives to take through to next week.
