*tears in eyes* My boys... they've grown up...Mr Mxyzptlk said:Cricket Web Black vs Cricket Web Colts
at Goffmouth Park
CW Black arrived at Goffmouth Park with their OD destiny in hand. Needing victory to book a place in the final against Blue, the goal was clear and simple. Despite the lack of relevance of the game to the Colts’ season, the home team won through with great heart.
David Comley’s spell of spin bowling lit up the stadium and engaged the crowd with its intelligence and spectacular success. He turned the game entirely the way of the Colts, following on beautifully from the earlier efforts of Arunava Das. Batting at three, Das stroked the ball to all part of the ground on his way to one of the finest centuries witnessed this season.
The Black bowlers struggled to find consistency and leaked an incredible 38 extras, including 24 wides. Only Chris Butler and David Kearsley truly looked to have any rhythm, and the latter took a career-best of 4/45. Kearsley kept his team in the game, but was one of the middle order batsmen who fell away cheaply against the spin of Comley later on.
Cricket Web Colts 281/7 (50 overs)
Cricket Web Black 261/8 (50 overs)
Cricket Web Colts won by 20 runs.
Man of the Match: DJ Comley
