Newbold Guides His Side Home As The 5ths Win Again.

Wellington came out on top against promotion-rivals Hales in a low scoring affair.

Having won the toss, skipper Steve ‘Iron-Man’ Gough kindly asked Hales to bat first on a scorcher of a day, but on a pitch which looked very tired & worn.
Gough’s decision proved right , as Hales were skittled out for just 99. Umair Nawaz, who bowled aggressively & with pace, ended up with figures of 4-33 from 6.3 overs. The opening bowlers Kumar Singh & Shehan Gunawardena were their normal reliable selves, ending up with 2-17 & 2-27 respectively.
A special mention though has to go to young George Topper, who bowled beautifully. George ended up with figures of 2-17 from his 5 overs, though in all honesty could have ended up with 1 or 2 more scalps.
A target of just 100 awaited Wellington, but on a pitch full of cracks this would not be an easy chase.
Chris Newbold & Mike Debenham opened the batting, but unfortunately Debenham’s poor run of form continued as he was dismissed for 2. Jack Sherry was in at 3 and looked good, before he fell for 14.
Newbold started to play a few more shots and decided that being aggressive was the best way to chase down the target . He fell for a fluent 43, with Wellington needing just 24 runs to win with 7 wickets in hand.
Newbold’s dismissal was the start of a mini collapse as Brothwood, Kevin Vaughan and George Topper all fell cheaply. All of a sudden, Wellington still needed around 20 for victory, but with just 4 wickets in hand now.
Umair Nawaz & Shehan Gunawardena though steadied the ship and both ended up not out as Wellington achieved their tagrget within 22 overs.
The win leaves Wellington still in 4th, but crucially just 2 points off a promotion spot.
Wellington travel to Frankton next Sunday hoping for another victory to catapult them in to that promotion spot.
