The cricketers started their season where the footballers left off – with a win!
They beat Aulnay CC with what looked like a comfortable 27-run win but was in fact very close for most of the game.
The 156 target they set from 35 overs didn't seem particularly solid but some tight bowling kept the opposition quiet and when drinks came, it all seemed very unpredictable.
What was even less predictable was an outrageous hit from deep that caught the top of the stumps for what will probably stand out as the best run out of the season. It happened in the 25th over and from then, there was huge belief that we could get the wickets that would give us the win and so it was.
A wonderful start to the season as we enjoyed a lovely sunbathed afternoon in full contrast with the Saturday rainy nets session that still didn't halt nine of us from taking to the pitch.
