Second X1 vs Arundel

  • Team left the pavilion full of confidence that 2nd placed Arundel were going to deliver the goods as usual and produce a cracker of a tea

  • Some big hitting , slow singles and solid blocking see Wiz reach 123 before Calum ‘binary’ Price falls for 32 well run singles.

  • A second solid win against another top 4 team sees Green come off the bottom – long may this form and belief continue
