Match Report

A sultry warm evening for Methigion’s final Mining league game. St. Gluvias kindly offered Methigion the chance to bat, perhaps because we were short, perhaps because with some many young players they didn’t want them kept up late on a school night. The Methigion innings got off to a typically inauspicious start with Bebb given lbw for 3 , Farrar 2 and Blake bowled first ball,one of 4 ducks. With 30 coming off the first 10 overs ,a competitive total looked unlikely .Tiley (19 ) stoked some elegant boundaries , and Dinuka smacked a quick late order 13.Sarkars batting was right out of the Geoffrey Boycott coaching manual , 7 off 27 balls. With the last 3 batsman all scoring ducks Methigion limped to 83 all out.
St Gluvias then set about showing how it should be done with some aggressive batting, scoring 32 off the first 5 overs, and reaching the winning line in the 11th over for an 8 wicket win. Mention should go to Dinuka ( 4-1-18-0) for an aggressive and economical spell .
Still it was a lovely summers evening and nice to get to the Heron early before the temperature dropped.
