15 Aug 2017 : This Week @ the OCC

After a month of dreich weather we at last had a full weekend programme of cricket.  Our women’s XI was denied the opportunity to play in their league grand final last Wednesday due to the rain.


1st XI v Withyham (away); Batting first, OCC scored 78 all out in 27.4 overs with only Ashley Middleton (25) and Louis Russell Watts (19) getting to double figures.  In reply Withyham chased down the score in 15 overs with 3 wickets in hand. Matt Norman took 4 wickets in 7 overs and Louis 3 overs in 6 overs

2nd XI v West Farleigh (home); The Soops fielded five U14s in a team that put in yet another great performance.  Fielding first, OCC restricted (almost) top of the table West Farleigh to 129 all out in 36 overs.  U14s Talbot, Evans (Luke), Tunstall and Preen each took two wickets, and Knight completed a stunning run out with a direct hit from the long off boundary. The Soops reply fell away somewhat with the Soops all out for 108 in 37 overs;  Keith Hall top scored with 33 runs

Mid-week XI v Nestle XI; Batting first Nestle scored 122 all out.  Paul Howard took three wickets for 4 runs with two apiece for the evergreen Jeremy and Nick Briggs.  Middleton effected three stumpings .  In reply, the MWE faltered somewhat leaving 30 to get from 3 overs.  With Hiscocks joined at the crease by Matt Norman the assembled throng need to have worried.  Matt took control and ended the match on 27* from 11 balls. Middleton and Crawford the elder scored 43 and 38 respectively
