The NCG was being slowly baked by a hot sun when the team rolled up on Sunday, everyone seemed to be suffering from some sort of hangover, be it from the Funday or the Mayweather / McGregor fight, there was a certain apathy towards the game.
Pett won the toss and decided to bat, much to our disgust. Bradney opened up from the Top End and settled into his customary disciplined line and length, he was accompanied by Smith from the Pavillion End. The Pett openers were limited, and Smith accounted for the first ,courtesy of a sharp slip catch by Browning. Bradney then joined the party ( probably the last thing he wanted to do, looking at the pallor of his skin) by picking up the other opener, also down to a reflex catch by Bourne at second slip. This brought their main two batsmen to the crease, who looked settled and competent, which is far more than can be said for most of us in the field. They started to knock the ball around. The Piper brothers, Sam and Jasper, came on and took a bit of tap before Jasper trapped their number four LBW, with the score at 70-3. Rummery then came on from the Top End and started to dismantle their middle order. Sam Piper then picked up their danger man with another LBW decision. The Pett tail wagged a little, with Browning picking up a wicket, and Bradney coming back on to pick up another one too. Pett ended up on a competitive 179 all out off their 40 overs.
After a super tea, courtesy of both Sue Bourne and Jet Gutteridge, why have one tea when you can have two? (I believe there was a slight muddle with the tea rota), Newenden set out to chase down the total. Morris fell early, which brought Rummery to the crease, who in tandem with Browning began to smack it about with abandon. They had cruised through to 87 before Rummery fell for 49. Browning put on a few more with Bourne, before falling for 50. Gutteridge and Jasper Piper both chipped in with decent cameos, before Smith hit the winning runs with over 14 overs to spare.
It was another solid win, and a decent won considering the state of the team. Next week we take on our nemesis Langton Green, they had better be prepared to reap the whirlwind.
