Evesham vs BGCC Sunday 2nd XI


The Green 2nds had no complaints after losing against a keen young Evesham side. Skipper Wajzer did his best to rotate a blend of young and very young seamers, but on a hot day the score rattled along at a steady 5 and 6 per over, helped by plentiful wides and assorted other extras. Some excellent catching by Bartlett and Rogers, some useful legspin from MacMillan, and steady late spells by Clack and Hill, were the bright points.


After tea there was a lively opening partnership full of well-timed drives by Hill and ferocious swipes by Rogers, but Evesham needed only one breakthrough on the wearing track and then the collapse was inevitable. Heaton, almost at a standstill with his injured ankle, battled well for 42, but the Green were dismissed with overs in hand, more than 100 short.
