I’m not really sure what else to say that the result doesn’t…Lilley won the toss and fielded. Bowled Whitwell out for 50, with Ashby taking 5 for 7 off 8 overs and Matt Clarke and Ken Hammond chipping in with 2 wickets apiece. Lilley should have cruised to the total. But a combination of a lively wicket, an experimental batting line up and hap-hazard stroke play left Lilley in a crumpled heap, 34 all out and with very sore pride!
The game was hampered by the track, with all bar one wicket falling bowled or lbw. No excuses though, just a shoddy effort. Expect Markyate next week to feel the wrath of the Lilley return!!
