Tattenhall Over 40s vs Chester BH Blazers Over 40s

By

A comfortable chase after a fine bowling display

The Blazers arrived at Tattenhall looking to cement their place at the top of the West Division.

Atko won another toss and invited Tattenhall to bat. A rapid start with 15 off the first two overs, before Fishy and Waz clawed things back a little. The fielding was somewhat hit and miss, which allowed the home side to build a solid foundation, but Ian Martin was proving very tricky to get away, going for just 9 off his 4 overs and claiming a wicket with a smart stumping from Karl. Kettle and Salt both retired, then Milky picked up the only other wicket to fall as Fishy's field placings denied Tattenhall any boundary opportunities. Seamus had a couple, as did Brayno, and the innings closed on 95.

Raj back to his normal self, smashing the first ball of the innings for 4. He and Karl looked in decent touch but both perished which brough Dil and Boothy to the crease. Boothy got one that popped on him which gave a debut to our guest Over 40s playing member Saleh, who was over from Panama for a few world cup games. He hit a couple of lovely boundaries in what was his first ever game on a grass wicket, but was bowled trying to force the pace. Dil out on 29 trying desperately not to get 30... a mini wobble caused Fishy to recall Seamus from the nets... only for Milky and Waz to finish things off, Milky walloping a couple of 4s in his 12*. So a steady, fairly comfortable run chase in the end and another win.

Afterwards, we had a magnificent range of curries and summer fruits and cream! Marvellous. Fines were entertaining, if not a little expensive for the skipper. Neston at home next week, title-decider...

MOTM - Dil
DOTD - Boothy (having to be told by the umpire to run a bye)
