Mopping up for hours only to lose the champions

By

Despite the effort of preparing in the wet, Chester were unable to scramble home.

An almighty downpour to end most cricket in the Northern Hemisphere. Except at Chester where the covers and hard work of a few got a game on in what turned out to be glorious sunshine. With Griff, Noah and Charlie using the Blotter and the ends being covered under supervision from Jon Townsend, the wicket was revealed and looked damp so Sam (with permission) prepared another track just in case...looked pretty good too. With no rain (or tea for that matter) Nige Muirhead and Dan Riley agreed a 3pm start and 30 overs each with pie and chips afterwards.
Toft batted first and were quickly in trouble at 6 for 3 with Stubbs and Bones both back in the shed: Wiggy and Sam doing the damage. Toft rallied and in an innings of ebb and flow, boundaries came as regularly as wickets. Sam (2 for 28) and Wiggy (2 for 18) replaced by Charlie and Dan prompting a well-judged catch by Noah at mid-off. 52 for 5 but just like Chester, the Toft tail is long. Charlie found his rhythm and with the cameras rolling from his home balcony, proceeded to chip away at the six wickets required for 50 league wickets. A smart stumping by Griff and a completely misjudged catch by Fishy and Charlie had 4 for 33. All out for 117.
No tea so straight round and out to face Cornes and Dunkerley. Only Wiggy in the top six making double figures in the face of some impressive seem bowling. Dil and Eddie dismissed by pretty good balls according to Damo who had very kindly stepped in to umpire (he's actually pretty good). More wickets but Ian at the crease with Rob Fisher at 82 for 9. They couldn't scrap out a win could they? It wasn't to be despite an excellent partnership. All out for 104 in the end. Ian not out (again) for 25.

MotM - Ian Metcalf kept us in the hunt and was the only batsman who looked comfortable.
