Clanfield Cricket Club - Winter report (7)

Clanfield got back to winning ways at the weekend with a convincing indoor league win over OPCS Titchfield.
Batting first, Clanfield made a slow start but steadily increased the rate, aided by a healthy number of extras. Oscar Windebank retired on 25 after hitting 4 consecutive fours and Haider Khan also retired on the same score. Mark Turnbull and Matt Bradley came together and continued to score well before Mark became the only wicket to fall. Toby Wehrle came in to see Clanfield up to an imposing 137 for 1 from their 12 overs.
Titchfield lost wickets regularly to some tidy Clanfield bowling and no batsman reached double figures. Matt bowled a superb spell, including a maiden over which must be extremely rare in indoor cricket. His final figures of 1 for 4 from 3 overs are incredibly economical in this form of the game. He was well supported by Oscar (2-24), Mark (1-7) and Toby (1-4 - his first ever indoor wicket) as the whole team fielded well and held 5 catches to dismiss Titchfield for only 48.
An excellent all round performance which takes Clanfield back to 3rd in the table with 2 games left.
