Whitgift beat OMTs in 1st round of Cricketer Cup

For Cricket Burble readers that follow OMT cricket, the summary is that Laurie Evans who has played a few games for Surrey and sometimes captains their 2nd XI won the Cricketer Cup match for Whitgift with a superb innings of 159 not out off 141 balls as they chased down 253 off 50 overs with more than 4 overs to spare.

Although we didn't win, I quite enjoyed the challenge of bowling at someone like that - one over went scoreless against him for the first five but I dropped slightly short on the 6th and he was able to cut me for four. I'm not sure the spectators enjoyed the expletives that left my mouth at that point....I know the umpire didn't! But 10 overs, 1 for 49 wasn't too bad for someone who doesn't always bowl at club level.

Not the result we needed though - Evans was dropped early on and you just can't drop catches in games like that (or at least if you do it needs to be one of the unknown players!).

Know the feeling. I dropped a guy on 8 the other week - he went onto to get a ton and won the game for his team. People should be forced to give fielders a 2nd chance in those circumstances i think
