Doctors lost to
Unison 114 for 4
Doctors 104 for 6
Unison chose to
bat in gloomy, overcast conditions at Cannington and were given a positive
start by Andrew Searle and Andrew Frick.
Searle (15) survived a chance to long off from the bowling of Robin
Irvine and Frick (28) a confident shout for a catch to keeper Graham
Fergusson off Harry Lee, but both found the boundary with a series of good
shots and the score had passed 50 when both openers perished in identical
fashion, sallying down the wicket to the wily Irvine (2-18), beaten in the
flight, and expertly stumped by Fergusson.
Mike Smart bowled a good containing spell and there were strange
exhortations in Afrikaans as South Africans Alwyn Malan and Quinton Button
made a careful reconnaissance before opening up their range of shots. Malan (14) departed to a nonchalant caught
and bowled by Jeremy Budd (1-25) but Button and Tim Mander played some
enterprising and inventive cricket to keep the score moving against tight
bowling from Joe Lee and
Rob Adcock was the
victim of an excellent catch at midwicket off A.Noon but Andrew Paisley and
James Murdoch rattled along at 6 an over.
