SNCC won by 10 wickets- 30 points, Sunderland 0.


The home team, decimated by late 1 st X1 call ups, chose to bat. At 22 Smith (8) was lbw to Paton & 4 runs later the left handed Vigneshwaran (0) was caught by Ryan Sid at short mid on off Davidson. At 33 Beal (3) was caught by Fletcher at slip off Paton & at 35, McCord had the left handed, obdurate Hutchinson (17, 63b), taken by w/k Ewart. Yaqoob (1) went at 40, caught by Fletcher at mid off, driving Khan's leg spin.

3 runs later Kumar (1) was well caught by Charnley as a hook flew to fine leg off McCord. A brief lull but at 65 Winslow (11) was bowled by Ryan Sid's medium pace & two runs later Dinsdale (0) suffered a similar fate. Sanderson & Bowman fashioned a partnership of 35 for the 9th wicket before Bowman (11) was bowled by Khan, 102 for 9, & at the same score in the 39th over, the valiant Sanderson (37, 66b, 5x4) was bowled by Davidson.

The Bulls response was emphatic. Smith, Yaqoob, Hutchinson, Bowman & Collins toiled as Ru Fletcher 75* (61b, 11x4 to all parts) & Alex Charnley (24*, 43b, 2x4) put together an unbeaten opening partnership of 103 in 20 overs to win the game by 10 wickets. The first 100 partnership for any second X1 league wicket this season. Bravo!

30 points but tougher assignments to come. Sat 25th June v Hetton Lyons (h), Sat 2nd July v Whitburn (h), Sat 9 July v Newcastle (a), Sat 16th July v Gateshead Fell (h). Work to do to continue to improve.
