A lovely sunny evening saw Tower Cavaliers narrowly defeat Old Ranwellians on Pitch 1.

Old Ranwellians, batting first, suffered an early setback when Hudson was bowled by Dickson with the score on 6. They recovered well with Greening and Eaton taking the score on to 67 before a poorly judged single attempt saw Eaton run out by the arm of Steve Williams.

The innings never really got going again as Rizvi removed Culley and Price with consecutive balls, the score standing at 86. Nash did well to keep out the hat-trick ball.Greening and Nash saw out the 16 overs. The final total of 118 benefitted from 25 extras.

Cavaliers made a steady start with Onslow and Rizvi, the latter striking the ball particularly well. Progress continued at a decent rate after Marshall replaced Onslow, caught off the bowling of Ford.

Ford struck again to remove Marshall, caught and bowled, with 61 on the board.Only 3 runs later Rizvi fell to Greening for a creditable 40, followed by Pendrigh, bowled Culley.

Cain Duncan had waited sometime as non-striker before facing his first ball, deciding to play an uncharacteristic forward defensive stroke he went for a Goldie to a lovely ball from Greening. (Greening went on to complete this over as a wicket maiden, a rare beast indeed in VPCCL matches).

Williams and Dickson at the crease looked a good combination to win the game until Williams edged a late swinging ball from Eaton onto his stumps. With 20 runs still needed, last man Paul Rainbow more than held up his end in partnership with Dickson, whose 22 not out brought the game home for Cavaliers.

Old Ranwellians will probably need to score more boundaries to win games, their bowling was tight with only one extra.This in stark contrast to Cavaliers who will have to reduce the extras tally a lot to beat teams who score more freely.
