Impressive Home Win for Arkley vs Old Eastcotians

16 Aug 2014

Arkley batted first again for the 13th consecutive time (surely a record?!) in a 40 over game and posted a good score of 209-7.
On a low slow Chandos pitch, Arkley got off to a good start with Jega (38), Ben (41) and Jake (39) getting us to 104-3 by the 23rd over. A few quick wickets were lost and with Arkley stuttering at 146-6, skipper Rakesh scored 41 quickly including 5 fours and two sixes.

In reply OE were 72-2 before smart bowling had them collapse to 78-7. A lower order rally saw them reach 120 all out.
Wickets were shared around, with new recruit Darhsan 2 wkts, Jake 2 wkts, Chris 2 wkts, 3 for Ben and 1 for Phil Knappett.

A solid win making it 3 in a row.
