Leehurst Swan won the toss and put Moyles Court in to bat first. LHS bowled well in the early overs and our opening batsmen struggled to score runs. Unfortunately, Hayden was run out in the third over and then Edward – one of our strong batsmen was bowled out for a duck in the fourth over. All the following batsmen struggled to score with only Josh able to offer any resistance to the LHS bowling. At the end of our 16 overs, we were 38 for 8.
LHS opening batsmen got a solid start and were able to score 18 runs before we got our first wicket. We were able to take a further 3 wickets before LHS were able to knock up the required 39 runs in 10.4 overs for the loss of only 4 wickets.
We were well beaten in this game by a team that simply batted and bowled better than we did. We will certainly be working on all areas of our game before our next game.
