MATCH 7 REPORT V ALL ENGLAND

MATCH 7  REPORT  V  ALL ENGLAND
After early rain in Worcester, it fined up to be  a pleasant sunny day to play cricket, back at Kidderminster CC, and the same strip as Friday gave us confidence for a good game.

Sharpie won the toss, and when Crane and Wilson were ready, the first Umpire arrived and the other came into 4th over. Team selected was Sharp, Cuddon, Crane, Wilson, Dunn, Ashby, Whitton, Perrett, Hartrup, Hutchesson, Abraham, with Hopkins 12th [bowler],

The openers had a 50 open partnership. The first five batsmen made - 22, 25, 38, 21, 29/ We make two mistakes, we do not turn the strike over enough or take up singles, and we give out wickets away too quickly, compared the the English batsmen, whose open partnership made 185. Blackey  105 and Day 66 runs.

Best bowlers were Cuddon 0/21 off 8 overs, and Hopkins 0/15 off 6 overs.

Victoria was totally outclassed and taught a few lessons about batting and bowling.

Man of match was Terry Dunn for Victoria and Neil Blackey for England.

Kidderminster hospitality was excellent with a good cottage pie meal for 7 pounds. After match speeches were entertaining as usual and good fellowship ensued with many friendships made between the teams.

Tomorrow sees a 2  1/2 hour road trip to play Cambridge / Norfolk at Clare College in Cambridge, so an early start and then to a new Hotel.
