Old Ranwellians won the toss and elected to field. Martians made a solid start thanks to a wayward opening over going for 15 runs, but wickets fell consistantly through the innings, Ford and Hudson amongst the wickets with 1-17 and 1-23 respectively. Inspired fielding from Hudson and Price coupled with questionable running between the wickets gave Old Ranwellians easy wickets in the form of run outs, before Greening came on to mop up the tail with 3-12.

Hudson and Eaton gave the Old Ranwellians a solid start with a stand of 49, before Eaton was bowled on 17. Hudson (43*) and Greening (5*) saw the side home with a stand of 51, the whole innings helped throughout by 35 extras, many of which were wides, which meant Old Ranwellians were never in trouble as they chased down the target of 100 with several overs to spare.

Old Ranwellians won the toss and imediately reached for the orange ball. With one opening bowler missing and the other playing with a fractured finger on his bowling hand, Skipper Greening wanted to get the fielding out of the way.

Martians started off solidly with the bat, however, out of the blue, or should I say orange, the ball started to swing literally yards. Ford and Hudson used the swing well and along with slowing the rate down took a wicket apiece (Hudson bowling out an opener and Ford getting the number 3 to loop up to Cameron at Mid Off), along with the suicidal run out of John who was scoring the majority of Martians runs.

Eaton and Greening then came on to bowl. At one end Eaton was struggling to control the ridiculously massive swing of the orange ball, however, at the other end Greening's off spin took three wickets along with another run out which saw good work from Cameron (throw) and Mark (stumps). This saw Martians bowled out for 99.

Eaton and Hudson then opened the batting for Old Ranwellians. Alex Hudson produced his second brilliant innings in as many days finishing on 43 not out without ever looking troubled. The innings progressed consistently at 10 runs an over with not much complications. The only blip coming in the form of Eaton's dismissal on 17, bowled by a full toss.
