Rosaneri 213 / 6 (40.0) C.McKenna 2 / 39, D.Malleson 1 / 19
North Enfield 69 / 10 (30.5) M.Ricketts 18, M.Wood 17
Rather a disappointing result after two good performances with the bat in previous innings. Things with the ball got off to a pretty decent start with Mally trapping the opener LBW in the 3rd over, and Del bowling an economical 6 over spell, followed by Ken’s 2 for 39 in 8 overs. At drinks, it was looking fairly promising. The batsman did get in and played well, but a bit of wayward bowling and chances in the field not taken led to a pretty hefty score. A few expensive overs in amongst generally decent bowling from The Colonel, Ricketts and Dukey helped Rosaneri to 200+.
Tea was generally fine, although the pizzas were not put in to cook until a bit late, so Ken managed to scoff an extra slice or two as the fielders were already preparing outside. Never one to miss an opportunity,
A slow start was starting to build fairly well with Ricky and Malcolm advancing into double figures. Del scored an entertaining 11 including a leg-side flick for 6, but was caught in the same place as Saturday attempting the same shot. Garth (9) and Mally (8) hung around for a while but we eventually folded to a rather pathetic 69 all out.
Good BBQ (cooked expertly by Del) and many beers with Neilsy completed proceedings.
2nd XI v Dunstable III
Dunstable 156 / 10 (52.2) J.Coningsby 4 / 54, A.Mahmood 3 / 23, D.Sanders 2 / 19
North Enfield 157/7 (37.5) D.Sanders 41, P.Moxham 28
An eventually comfortable win for the 2s, with Dunstable making things interesting in both innings with a recovery with the bat, and then generating a mid-innings wobble. Jacko bowled 22 overs for his wickets, a top effort and backed up with excellent spells from Ahsan, and Del off his short run-up.
The 2nd innings started positively with Del advancing to 40, and Moxy (12). Andy Mac, Richard Barber and Del all fell in quick succession before Paul and Ricky stabilised the innings and took the score to within 20 of victory. Gleno batted well and was not out at the end, along with Ricky as the 2s took home 30 points.
