1864s slump to 10 wicket defeat to Wylam

9th May 2022

Not the best day for the 1864's, lost the toss, asked to bat & 49 all out in the 29 th over.

SNCC 1864's 49ao (28.4o) Patrick Hatcher 14, Ahmer Hameed 11: Rory Young 3-7, Paul Robinson 2-13, Rob Howarth 3-16.

Wylam 51-0 (10.2o) Mark Wilson 12*, Rob Howarth 25*: Patrick Hatcher 0-7 Mo Shahbaz 0-21, Pavan Korlapati 0-15, Shiva Paddabavi 0-2.

Wylam 20 points: 1864's 0.

A sobering day at Greenside, being asked to bat, the first ball stroked for 4 but all downhill thereafter. On a slow wicket, against steady bowling, in attempting to score & be positive, batters seemed only able to offer catching practice. 6 caught, 3 bowled, 1 run out & only a partnership of 20 from 22-6, between Patrick Hatcher (14) & Ahmer Hameed, saved a little face.

Injuries & availability notwithstanding, we are better than this ! We must learn patience & adopt batting styles suited to the surfaces in front of us. They are not all like the indoor centre at South North !!

A chance to bounce back next Sat 14 th May, away to Belsay. Hard practice needed to improve & be happy to have played a full game. Onward please!
