RADCLIFFE CRICKET CLUB 1st Team v Crompton on Sat 01 May 2010 at 1:30
RADCLIFFE CRICKET CLUB Won By 79 Runs

Match report Radcliffe took on Crompton at the Racecourse ground and welcomed back Sean Gibson for his first game of the season replacing wicketkeeper Robbo.

Once again Radcliffe batted first but a flurry of early wickets left the hosts reeling. Out of the top 5 batsmen only Farnworth(25) and Muntaza (21) stuck around for a decent period of time, but the team spirit at the moment meant that all was not lost as overseas Malik (60) and Chris Berry (66) provided some stability later on in the innings, accompanied by some lusty blows from Matthew Smalley (20) and fielder Gary Nicholson (4 not out) guided Radcliffe to 226 for 7 off 50 overs.

In reply Crompton got off to a good but slow start with the openers both getting to double figures but the game changed when stand in keeper Gibson had the pro stumped off the bowling of Shah for 8, the whole of the racecourse went up in delight as the umpire raised his finger.

Wickets continued to fall at regular intervals as the pro Anwar and Shah kept the bowling consistant and tight.


Only Zulfiqar offered some form of resistance with a fine innings of 65 but he was the final wicket to fall with the score on 147.

Professional Anwar and Shah shared the wickets evenly with 5 for 69 and 5 for 53 respectively.

Radcliffe have now gone 3 games unbeaten and 1 more win would equal the same amount of victories for the whole of last season!
