Four days after having put in an awful batting performance at the same ground, against the same opposition during an evening T20, WUCC were looking for payback.
Payback did not come.
WUCC produced an excellent bowling performance, with Ian (unspellable surname!) enjoying a fine four wicket haul with a catch of the season contender in there from an unshapely Indian at cover. WUCC restricted OCAs to a similar score to their T20 haul earlier in the week – just over 100 runs. Easily gettable.
WUCC then scored fewer runs in this 40 over match than they did in the 20 over equivalent a few days earlier. Bowled out for 57 runs in what was a truly awful batting performance, there weren’t even any nice veggie burgers to soften the blow.
A day best forgotten but Man of the Match was clearly Ian for doing his part with the ball. Onwards….
