Danny Walton hit a magnificent 79 not out to help the thirds get two points away at Whiston. Whiston 176-9, SCCC 161-7Whiston batted first and we had them in trouble with Angry bowling well down the slope. He had taken the first 3 with Whiston only having 32 on the board. However Whiston battled back and a mixture of good batting and the regular 4 ball in each over enabled them to get to 176 for 9. Angry ended up with 4 for 37 from 18 and well done to Longers who got 4 for 63 and to the team for holding the catches.
This was still a very getable total as long as we batted well. Apart from Danny Walton who batted superbly and Angry who supported well at the end, we didnt.
Danny (79*) showed maturity pacing his innings well, and with Angry (26*) in an unbeaten partnership of 63 from about 10 overs nearly won us the game when at one point we 98 for 7. Danny will certainly get bigger scores however this was a great knock on a difficult wicket and was the main reason we came away with two points.
Thanks and well done to all the players who moved teams at short notice
