Another Game: Another Draw

Another Game: Another Draw

Sunday June 26th

Lodsworth CC v West Sussex Wanderers CC at Lodsworth

Lodsworth CC 223 for 5 (Rod Taylor 62 not out, James Hickey 55, Jon Houghton 33, Oliver King 29; G Staight 19 overs 4 for 89))

West Sussex Wanderers CC 61 for 8 (G Staight 18; Andy Long 12 overs 10 maidens 4 wickets for 3 runs, Rod Taylor 5 overs 3 maidens 2 for 2)

Match Drawn

Yet another game where Lodsworth batted brilliantly and then bowled tightly but were unable to clinch a victory as West Sussex Wanderers defended stoutly in the fading light.

Lodsworth batting lineup goes from strength to strength. James Hickey, Jon Houghton and Oliver King pushed the score along steadily but it was Rod Taylor who provided the spark on this occasion. His 62 not out, including 10 fours and 2 sixes was a delight to watch. Lodsworth recorded 223 off 43 overs for the loss of 5 wickets.

West Sussex Wanderers had apparently decided from the outset to shut up shop and deny Lodsworth a victory. Andy Long was the pick of the Lodsworth bowlers with an amazing 12 overs10 maidens 4 wickets for 3 runs. Rod Taylor followed up his batting performance with 5 overs 3 maidens 2 for 2. But all to no avail and Lodsworth recorded their fourth draw of the season.

Frustrating! But another decisive Lodsworth victory is in the offing.
