5ths so close to 1st win

Lost toss and oppo decided to bat. Great opening spell from Prash with no luck and an even better spell from Chris Pickford reduced them to 14-3 with Chris producing the remarkable figures of 4 overs, 4 maidens 0 runs and 3 wickets.

Ben continued to bowl well and Jack Lister bowled a good spell with no luck. Chris Pickford came back and initially struggled to find the line and length he had displayed earlier and Lister Snr replaced Lister Jr. A stand of 70 then swung it their way, although this was due to good partnership building by them rather than poor bowling by us (although we did drop 2 catches we should have held).
