SMBCC vs South Wilts IV – 09.06.18

10 Men is Plenty, another home win!

🏏 South Wilts IV where the visitors to the Recreation Ground this Saturday and elected to bat on very dry track showing a few cracks. The SMB pacers wasted no time in hitting a few of these cracks as the batsman didn’t know what foot to play off of. Alex Melkonian bowling his best spell of the season straight through (3-28).


5 Down at drinks, A period of drifting play ensued as the South Wilts batsman found rotating the strike and running singles to 10 men SMB easy. The reintroduction of Martin Clay (2-18) got rid of the well set opener who had batted well for his 60, opening an end up for the new Caretaker, Jack White as Woody was away to come on and mop up the tail. His best league figures (4-11) as he dibbled and dobbled bamboozling the young tail end batsmen.

Chasing 158 to win Chalky, confidence levels high after his wickets, blasted his way to a quickfire (21) before playing all around a straight one. No. 3 came and went quickly, the pitch misbehaving every now and then keeping the opposition bowlers very excited and extremely vocal. Veterans Rob King (49*) and Phil Fish (56*) batted with patience and great application to see SMB home with 8 wickets to spare. Putting on an unbeaten 100 run partnership, shutting up the rather annoying fielder that chirped inane rubbish pretty much every ball.

Phil Fish won the ‘Man of the Match’ award for his highest league score, Kinger got the vegetable for pretty dodgy running and missing out on a 50 by turning down a single.
