Brigands v Jay XI

The rain finally came before the penultimate game of the season against a select eleven from Hambledon, Bedales, Old Wykehamists, and guests.


A tricky pitch to bat on, Sargant bowled well, and one of those days when the ball stuck in the fielder's hands; Turner in particular took a catch that would otherwise have been a certain six. This was Wood's sort of game; the ball was swinging, Ladenburg missed a straight one and before you knew it he had four wickets from three overs. Only Saben-Clare got stuck in to get the Jay XI up to 86 all out.


A tricky opening spell saw Turner out LBW and Henderson having to ride some early luck before the spinners came on and the one-handed six came out. Curtis hit a quick 25 and also retired, but the Jay XI came back with three wickets in four overs.


The experience of Mann (16 not out) and Wood (12 not out) saw Brigands home in time for a pub lunch at the Bat and Ball.


Brigands 89-6 beat Jay XI 86 all out
