Unison 129 for 5
Doctors 130 for 4
chose to bat first and made slow headway at first against restrictive bowling
by Mike Smart and Charles Macadam.
Smart’s fine bowling was rewarded with excellent figures of 1
for 11 and after 8 overs the score was only 45 for 1. In the next four overs the total rocketed
up to 92 as first P.Blake (33 ret.) and then
Doctors lost an early wicket to J.Smith (1-24) but Alan Dunkley (16) batted attractively until he was caught by keeper Steve Rybaruk off the tight bowling of Nigel Osborne ((1-30). This brought the giant Justin Pepperell in to partner Fergusson and he was rapidly into his stride with a volley of ferocious drives. He was eventually bowled for 46 by the deserving Mike Caswell (2-39) who kept cool under fire, but by then the match was almost safe. Fergusson’s accomplished 46 n.o. saw Doctors home with 3 overs in hand.
