Weather Foils Firsts

Wellington took eight points from a losing draw at Old Hill but were thwarted of an outright victory by the weather.

Match report by Peter Byram

Chasing the visitors’ total of 239 Old Hill were struggling at 189-8 with two tailenders at the crease. But when the promised rain arrived the home side were ahead of Wellington’s run rate and so collected the winning draw and 14 points.

Batting first Wellington were a given a great start by pro Neil Edwards and his new opening partner Sam Lloyd. Edwards led the way with a typically speedy 68 before falling to the first ball after the drinks break while Lloyd went on to a highly promising 76.

The young left hander earned his chance at the top of the order after several hefty contributions in the seconds and took full advantage of a fast outfield. The openers helped Wellington to 172-2 at just over the halfway stage but after that it was downhill as a variety of poor shots saw them all out for 239 – just one run short of a fourth batting point.

In truth we should have totalled at the very least 280 which would have taken the winning draw out of Old Hill’s reach.

However, Anthony O’Connor’s early burst reduced the Hillites to 7-3 and Wellington looked on the way. However, a streaky century from Jared Daniels held up the visitors attack and steered his side to the larger points haul.

Old Hill were on 189-8 when rain drove the players from the field, the most successful bowler being O’Connor with 4-62 from 11 overs. There was also a fine bowling performance from fit again Gagandeep Singh who, although only claiming 1-36 from 13 overs, beat the bat time and time again and on another day could have had a hatful of wickets.

Disappointing as the result was the eight points gained took us back up to third place in the table. The First return to Orleton Park on Saturday when the visitors are Moseley.
