Subject: Cricket May 18/19

A busy week with matches mid-week for juniors and 3 Saturday and 2 Sunday games.
Highlight was the remarkable score of 309.9 off 50 overs by the 1st team at home against Sudbury in the Thurlow Nunn East Anglian Premier League, the visitors won the toss and elected to field but did not expect the onslaught from the first ball as Alex Maynard and Nikethan Radkakrishan set about the bowlers in devastating fashion the first 30 minutes yielded 50 runs off 32 deliveries in fact time was twice lost fetching the ball from the gardens on the Nowton side of the Victory Ground. Maynard’s 50 came off 27 balls with 4 x 4 and 4 x 6 Radhakrishan scored his 50 off 43 deliveries the 100 was up in 63 balls and 150 in 122 deliveries by this time Radhakrishan had departed for 73 putting on 139 for the 1st wicket. Will Routledge played a more sedate innings and was second out for 30 off 52 deliveries, captain Josh Cantrell was out for 7 and at 241.4 Maynard’s remarkable first EAPL century came to an end his score of 118 was off 96 deliveries and included 11 x 4 and 4 x 6, there was a flurry of wickets but the final total of 309.9 was a good as any 50 over score likely this season. Paddy Sadler finished with 3.69 and Ben Reece 2.49.
Sudbury were never able to cope with the target Tom Rash took the first two wickets Mark Smith (2.38) and Alex Cruickshank (1.24) Ben Whittaker (1.21) James McKinney (1.17) and Cantrell with 3.32 off 8 overs saw the home side to a good win by 140 runs as Sudbury were all out for 169.
