Needingworth II vs Bar Hill - CCA League
Bar Hill won the toss and elected to bowl. There were early frustrations in the field as the Needingworth put on the runs. A change of bowling meant the wickets began to fall with both openers falling in one over. Wickets were taken at regular intervals after this. Sam Clare was the pick of the bowlers with 4-27. Martin Haslop took 2-16 and Tom Page 2-29 as Needingworth totalled 153 all out. Bar Hill's reply looked to be maintaining the required run rate with the loss of few wickets, with Sam Wilson scoring 37 and Phil Orvis hitting a quick 31. However, the lack of batting depth showed as the last 6 wickets fell for just 22 runs with Bar Hill ending on 122 all out. Despite suffering our first CCA league loss of the season, fellow title challengers Wilburton II also suffered a loss, setting up a key match on 19th August.
