Werneth v RADCLIFFE CRICKET CLUB 1st Team on Sun 25 Apr 2010 at 1:15
RADCLIFFE CRICKET CLUB Won By 41 Runs (Delayed Play Rule)

Match report Radcliffe were still on a high following their opening day victory against Royton and were looking to get another win under their belts.

Having opted to bat first that decision was looking wrong as non of the top 4 made it to 20 but some good hitting from Overseas Malik (24) and Martyn Coates (41) set a platform for tail enders of Berry(26), Smalley(11) and Nicholson (20not out) to guide Radcliffe to 203 for 8 off their alloted overs.

What Radcliffe needed to do was simple, Werneth needed 145 off 31 overs because of rain so Radcliffe needed to defend out of their skins and make sure that Werneth got no where near.

Due to the 2nd XI game getting called off early the 1st's where well supported and every stop, every block, every ball was cheered by the travelling Radcliffian's!!! Although the biggest cheer of the day came first ball when ever enthuiastic Berry raced across the outfit in his new NONE bowling boots and slipped on his backside

In all fairness to Werneth they never looked like getting close as wickets fell at regular intervals from "Hero" Shah and Professional Anwar, Michael Burns bowled well without any success and on any other day he would of had numerous chances taken but Werneth couldnt get bat near him.

Radcliffe fielded superbly and restricted Werneth to 103 at the close of play and Radcliffe claimed a 4 point victory and remained unbeaten.
