1 Run Thriller victory at Cirencester

Victory by 1 run – Wow!

NCCC 191 all out in 39.5 overs. Ciren 190 for 7 in 40 overs.

10 man NCCC batted first. John Wells epic season continued with 61 and Steve Lamble 45 built a patient foundation. Rimon 16, Tim Crook 13 an Ollie Whittaker 21 pushed the final total to 191.

NCCC started bowling well, run rate below required and wickets falling. Rimon (3Wkts)could only bowl 7 overs before returning to the restaurant. Down to 9 men. Excellent spells from Ollie and Orlando. Mike Cannon and Richard Moody started to push the score along and relentlessly chasing down the total. A maiden at a vital time from Charlie Lamble left Ciren requiring 13 off the last over from Captain Stewart… A no ball, a run out, tension.. 4 to win, 3 to tie off the last ball and it’s dark. Neither batsmen nor fielders can see the ball. Squeaky bum time. Whack….. batsmen running, but only 2 scored. Captain and team hold their nerves, just …..

NCCC win by 1 run. – Wow

Really fab game with friends playing hard against friends in an exemplary game. Congrats to all.
