Unfortunately, the rain that was forecast for tonight became an unexpected ( and most unwelcome visitor) as Bashley started their U19 T20 Cup fixtures this afternoon !
The first spits fell as Calmore arrived. The match started with some big hitting from Calmore’s batsmen taking J.Nicholson and S.Gregory to retirement at 50+ runs. The first wicket fell as W. Taylor took a high catch for J. Edmunds. Ironicially, as the covers were run back on, the sky appeared to clear, and play resumed briefly.
As the drizzle rolled in more decisively, the Weather Apps were consulted and the match was halted. Calmore on 176/4 off 18 overs, with further wickets for K. S. Laurent and Presland ( both caught by Macciocchi) and R. Macciocchi ( caught Presland)
Great spirit and co-operation from both teams – the match will be re-scheduled.
Bashley U19 T20 squad will be in action again next Sunday, 26th June, 3pm at the BCG
