1st Games of the season
May 6th, 2017
First game of the season for our First XI was away Vs Kineton and we won by 9 wickets, taking away 23 points! We won the toss and put them into bat. The breakthrough came in the 19th over, when D Moore JNR took our first 2 wickets. Shortly followed by J Groves taking an impressive 4 wickets to take out their middle order. J Lindner and R John concluded the innings, both taking 2 wickets. Kineton left us chasing 180 runs.
It was a strong partnership between our opening batsmen. S Nicholls starting where he left off last season, with a outstanding 72 runs not out, getting his 50 off 53 Balls. He was supported by D Moore JNR, until Dan was caught on the boundary for 36. J Hicks took to the crease at number 3, managing to seal the win and get his 50 simultaneously, off of just 24 balls.
Our Second XI hosted a friendly against a depleted Kineton second team. Some Ebrington players kindly came along to make up the teams alongside some promising youngsters enabling the game to go ahead. An enjoyable afternoon was had by all.
Overall, a great start to the season for CCCC.
