Match Reports

Firsts vs Crawley Eagles 

Not a long match report today. Partly because we lost and the less said about the game the better…

Green won the toss and batted. After a good start with openers Francis and Dodd putting on 34 in quick time Wis lost wickets at regular intervals. This was mainly due to poor shot selection on a slightly tricky deck. There were 7 scores between 13 and 17 but only Doddy (29) got past 20.

With the ball and in the field the effort could not be faulted. Napper and Thatcher caused problems first up and they were well backed up by the other bowlers in general. Just that one bad ball per over quite often cost us. Sadly the luck wasn’t with the home side and the ball seemed to elude fielders whenever it was chipped in the air by the batsmen. 1 or 2 tough chances were put down and 1 easy chance was shelled.

Overall it came down to making the wrong call at the toss. Not the skippers fault it was a team decision and when we did bat none of the batsmen built on the starts that they got.

Skippers comments:
Stand-in skipper Jonny Farmer – “Wow! A real baptism of fire! A game we really should have won but didn’t put enough runs on the board. Would be easy to blame the decision we made at the toss but the fact was there were runs out there for people who batted sensibly. Sadly we couldn’t put anything together.

Pleased with the way we bowled. They took almost 40 overs to reach the target and with a little more luck we might have put some real pressure on them.

 

Under 9’s vs Horsham 

A lovely Sunday afternoon saw the Wisborough Green Colts take on Horsham at Collard’s Field.

Horsham batted first and recorded a first innings total of 281 off their 16 overs. The Wisborough Green Colts bowled and fielded very well to restrict the visitors total. The fielding in particular was very good with a number of boundaries saved in the deep. Congratulations to Dexter McCullen the leading wicket taker with 2 wickets in his allotted overs and a special mention to Finn Versteeg who fielded very well. Rufus and Oliver also restricted the batted with accurate line and length bowling.

After a quick break Wisborough Green began the run chase. Finn and Rufus, William Green and Oliver, Imogen and our captain for the match Eden, and Dexter and Flynn all did very well with all the pairs recording positive scores for the team. In the end and after a great attempt to chase down the total, Wisborough scored a total of 249 off their 16 overs. After taking wickets into account, congratulations to Flynn and Oliver who were joint top scorers for Wisborough Green.

A very good performance from the Wisborough Green Colts with notable improvements in their batting, fielding and bowling. Well done to all the Colts who took part in the match.
