Wellington Fall Short At Moseley

The 1st XIs' winning start to the season came to an abrupt end at Moseley when the home side chalked up a 30-run victory.

Batting first, Moseley lost four early wickets with two victims apiece for Anthony O’Connor and Gagandeep Singh. They rallied to some extent but were then pegged back again by the spin of Adam Byram and looked likely to fall way short of a decent total.

But some lusty late hitting and indifferent bowling helped the home side to 180 all out in 48.1 overs, Wellington’s cause not helped by a side injury to Gagandeep who was unable to complete his 10 overs.

Anthony picked up four wickets but was on the receiving end late on and finished with 4-57 from nine overs. Best returns came from Gagandeep (2-18 from 8.1) and Adam (2-19 from 10).

A tricky task on a difficult pitch became a very hard one after the early dismissals of in form pair Neil Edwards and Joe Clarke.

Matt Tilt made 24 and Wendell Wager 20 but the only worthwhile contribution came from opener Steve Lamb, who batted superbly against a fierce onslaught from the home pace bowlers to reach a worthy 40.

The team, still equal third in the table, will be anxious to put the defeat behind them when they entertain Leamington on Saturday.
