Old Ranwellians v Contenders

Wednesday 27 May 2009, Victoria Park
Contenders won by 3 wickets

Old Ranwellians won the toss and chose to bat first

Old Ranwellians: 100 for 6 in 16 overs
Greening 23
Eaton 22
Nash 11*
Mairoj 4-0-12-2
Orett 3-0-20-1
Derek 2-0-11-1

Contenders: 101 for 4 in 13 overs
Chonky 31*
Ambrose 22
Orett 14
Greening 3-0-23-2
Culley 4-0-26-1
Ford 4-0-29-1

Old Ranwellians won the toss and elected to bat. Greening (23) and Eaton (22) strode out confidently, quickly getting on top of the apparently legendary Contenders' hostility to record yet another 50 partnership.

However, yet more poor running between the wickets led to Eaton's second run out in as many matches.

And as Old Ranwellians have found so often this season, their middle order has the composition of butter on a hot summer's day, with only Nash (11*) providing any stiffness as he saw out the final overs to give the Contenders something (100) to chase.

Mairoj was the pick of the bowlers, his tight medium pace claiming 2 wickets for just 12 runs in 4 overs.

Old Ranwellians felt they had a sniff when Derek fell first ball of the Contenders' innings.

However, solid play from the other opener Chonky (31*), along with cameos from Layton (13), Orett (14) and a blistering Ambrose (22) saw Contenders home without much to do.

Greening took 2-23 for Old Ranwellians, with Culley and Ford also claiming a wicket a piece.

Old Ranwellians are going to have to add some steal to their batting in the coming weeks to have a chance of winning their first league game, as recent targets set of 119 and 101 are obviously not enough on the small Victoria Park pitches
