elmswell cricket club got back to winning ways last sunday as we beat nowton cricket club. nowton batted first and we demolished them, all out for 74. we then made short work of our target and i didn't even get a chance to bat.
we're now sitting pretty in mid-table of division 3 after two games. next up its our first away game at edwardstone and the weather forecast looks like sunshine all they way!
better late than never but i thought i'd post our result from last weeks cricket match.
earl stonham batted first and posted a score of 189 for 4 from their 40 overs. we bowled well and with a bit more luck we'd have had a few more wickets. i played pretty well behind the stumps and took two catches.
our innings was a tale of two halves. we raced to 100 runs off the first 20 overs and then had a bit of a collapse in the second 20 overs. after 40 overs we had reached 186 for 8, just short of the target. i hit a pretty good 13 runs in the rain.
overall not a bad result for our first game of the season and even thought we lost we picked up a few bonus points which always come in handy at the end of the season. we currently sit 5th out of 9 in division 3.
next game is against nowton at home. hopefully we can do a bit better this week and get a win this time. i'll let you know how we get on.
