I'm happy to report that we finished the season with a win over Evening Herald last Friday. We bowled first, and should have been well ahead of the game early on but that perennial terror 'the dropped catch' struck 4 times in the first two overs. Thankfully our catching improved, with a stunner from Ronan at point and a solid take by Andy Keane at slip. Regular wickets kept Evening Herald to 109 in their 20 overs. A stiff, but manageable target. In reply, Ronan got us off to flyer reaching his 20 in just 16 balls. Being ahead of the rate early allowed our middle order to take their time, with Nick Royle playing the anchor role. Contributions from all batsmen kept the runs ticking over, and it fell to Jim Wilson to win the game with a first ball boundary in the penultimate over with 3 wickets in hand. Well played by all.
That brings our final tally for the season to 4 wins (including regaining the College Park Cup from Law Library) 2 losses, 1 tie, and 2 no results. Not a bad season.
If anyone's appetite for cricket this summer has yet to be satisfied, the Trinity 3s are having a bit of a practice match tomorrow afternoon 2-6 in college. Anyone who wants to join in is more than welcome to.
Finally, Barney and I would like to thank everyone that took part this season and contributed to games being played in the friendly and fair spirit which taverners cricket is all about.
