Grace's lost to Old Elizabethans by 110 runs
Batting last seems to be the norm now as another toss was lost and Old Elizabethans CC opted to bat on an overcast and cool afternoon. A dream start saw one opener caught behind for a duck. However the number 2 then dug in and after some consolidation took the attack to the bowlers with some well timed shots. A great throw from Newton saw the number 3 run out going for a second run to break this partnership. This brought in the stocky number 4 who lacked elegance but had a good eye. Their partnership looked like it was going to take the game away from us but some good fielding and some tight bowling had wickets tumbling at the end to keep the score down to what seemed a reasonable total of 186.
