Wellington 1st XI endured a horrid afternoon when they played host to Whitchurch on Saturday. The travelling side won the toss and elected to bat, a decision which paid off big time when Mubeen Rashid (73) and Andy Jones (41) shared a second-wicket stand of 115. Their efforts set up a large total of 211-7 in their 40 overs, but it was aided by a series of spilled catches from the home fielders. Adithya Manigandan (3-38) was the pick of the bowlers. Wellington’s response was dead on arrival as the hosts slumped to 36-5 after a top-order collapse. Skipper Wendell Wagner (51) stood firm but he ran out of partners as his team went down to a heavy defeat, finishing on 109 all out.
Nevertheless, Wellington are the confirmed winners of the Mike Robinson group and will play Quatt, winners of the other section, for the SCCL Premier Division title on Saturday 26 September. That match will be played at Worfield.
