Belvoir had first use of 'The Road @ GLA' and recorded the lowest total of the weekend on a wicket which resembled glass! The bowlers toiled manfully with little assistance from the conditions, although it must be said that the wicket wasn't as 'boring' as the one 8 miles away used for the Test Match! Although wickets were hard to come by, runs hardly came at breakneck speed and when 45 overs had been bowled, 204-6 seemed like a strange sort of score. Cairney and Billy Armstrong took 2 a piece, with one for Dickon & a run out. Credit to the bowlers for keeping a lid on it.
Calvo's reply got off to a poor start (when can we have a good one - please?!), as Will and Eddie were soon back in the hutch with just 21 on the board. However a fine partnership of just over a hundred between Billy A (69) & James Cairney (26) got the innings back on track. When Cairney & Billy fell in quick succession,124-2 had become 126-4. Jordan Jackson and Graham Waghorn then put on a valuable 40 runs until JJ was caught behind. Callum Williamson joined Wag and there were no further alarms as the target was achieved with 5 wickets & 9 overs to spare. Wag carrying on his recent good form with an undefeated 42.
So 18 points in the battle to beat the drop. Onwards & upwards!
