KBCC always knew that this would be a tough match, missing both opening batsmen and their keeper (Thomas and Jasper agreed to share keeping duties) against a strong Downs side (though Downs were also missing their strongest player). Downs won the toss and elected to bat first. Their captain, Weller and Potter (County GU15 playing two years down as permitted in the rules) opened their batting with great confidence, punishing anything short or too full from our top three bowlers. Weller retired on 30*, Potter on 31*. Niyarepola (32*) and Welch (30*) took up where their openers left off. Downs’ 5 and 6 scored more slowly, but proved equally stubborn, but Kingston finally took a wicket on the last bowl of the innings – bowled by Clement. Downs finished on 164 for 1 off their 20 overs – rather a tall order….

 

Thomas and Benedict started the chase well, in their new positions as openers. The Downs side bowled their players who hadn’t batted, keeping their strongest bowlers (who’d retired whilst batting) for the back end of our innings. Thomas hit a nice 31* off 19 balls, whilst Benedict looked solid at the other end. Our run rate slowed right down once Thomas left the scene and whilst we batted out our overs, we never looked like coming close to Downs’ target. We did well to bat the full 20 overs, finishing on 91 (though just 56 of these were off the bat).

 

On the plus side, we kept our extras right down in this match compared with previous performances and we didn’t give away our wickets. Our fielding could have been a little sharper, looking to really attack the ball, putting pressure on the batsmen. Let’s also get some more talking in the field to raise spirits! It’s always a difficult balance between swinging the bat and taking risky runs versus defending our wickets, but we could work on some big hitting and quick running at next Friday’s training!
