The first weekend of the new 2015 season saw both teams win.
The 1st team went on a raid at Collingham and brought back 19 points. KECC were 165 for 3 with 12 overs to go but didn’t manage to capitalise on the new fielding restrictions, ending up on 205-9. Matt Webb scored 79 and a quick fire 42 from Stephen Brown and 32 from Dan Mason got us to our total. KECC had Collingham 128-9 with some great bowling from Stephen Brown (6fer not a lot) and others chipped in. A last wicket stand of 65 got Collingham close but they fell in the final furlong, finishing on 193 all out.
The 2nd team had five players making their KECC debuts at the Field of Dreams and what an outrageous scorecard this turned out to be. Colton were bowled out for 197 inside 29 overs, with Jonners taking 6 for 63 of 8.2 overs (entertaining stuff!). This gave our 2nds a mere 71 overs to reach the target! Steve Wilkinson scored 151 not out (from 86 balls) and Rob Caddy 31 not out (from 46 balls) taking the 2nds to victory in less than 23 overs and collecting 18 points.
It was a great start to the season and long may this form continue.
Happy Birthday to Ya #blueandyellow
