In a game reduced to 40 overs a side, Calverton batted first on a wicket that was difficult to score on and if the ball was hit hard the long outfield soon slowed up the ball. In fact it was the 24th over before the first boundary was hit as the score limped along. Wickets fell at regular intervals and at 57-7 all appeared lost. However, birthday boy 'Poggy' Bateman decided to post his highest score of the season (35*) and with help from Ryder Wyatt and Max Harrison - who hit the biggest six ever seen in the history of cricket, the score reached the dizzy heights of 108.
The home side also found scoring difficult with James Toogood, Jarrod Bell & Ethan Wright each taking two wickets a piece. Alas it wasn't to be as Attenborough sneaked home on 109-7.
