Match Reports




CC de l’Ouest beat Doctors by 7 wickets


Doctors           97 all out


CC de l'Ouest             98 for 3


Doctors approached their innings with some apprehension in the return match on the tricky Serent wicket.  They made a bad start when Harry Lee was given out lbw to a ball from Lee Snelling (1-19) that was passing well wide of leg stump and lost two further batsmen to Matt Powell (2-11).  Their woes deepened when Graham Fergusson (11) clipped a ball from Wayne Ackroyd (1-12) to S.Bennett at square leg and Rob Moore lost his middle stump to a fast shooter from J.Rana.  For a brief interlude Ed Johnson (18) took the attack to the bowlers but the variable bounce and the pace and accuracy of Rana (4-13 from 7 overs) accounted for him and another mini collapse ensued.  The only batsman to play with any comfort was Charles Macadam who was left high and dry for an excellent, unbeaten 18.


Trevor Edwards and John Ward provided a sound platform until Edwards (13) was bowled by Moore (1-28) and Ward (11) was bowled by Lee.  Rana was the main difference between the two sides and this showed again as he gave an exhibition of how to play on a dodgy wicket.  When Rana (26) was lbw to the impressive Lee (2 for 8 from 6 overs) Ackroyd (14 n.o.) and Snelling (15 n.o.) were left with a relatively simple task to finish the match.
