A sunny day and a rainy day

Saturday’s game at Felixtsowe was played in sunny and breezy conditions, while several games further inland were rained off.  Colne lost the toss and were put into bat on a shocker of a pitch.  Uneven bounce, slow, plus an incredibly slow outfield meant that a score of 150 might win the game.  Wickets fell a regular intervals but a nice little partnership between Oliver Kearin and Mark Harris, plus some late runs from Oakley and James Flood brought the team home to 132 all out in the last over – a far more respectable scoreline than it looks.

After tea, Felixstowe got off to a painfully slow start with just 36 runs scored in the first 18 overs.  Two wickets fell in quick succession, but Coleman had other ideas, scoring freely.  A couple of bowling changes brought a wicket each for Flood and Oakley, but Coleman was scoring too quickly and the total was reached with just 4 wickets down.


Felixstowe win by 6 wickets.  Points  20 – 4


On Sunday, Daryl Sleeman was seeing the ball large, and got Colne off to a brisk start with the bat, but heavy rain interrupted the fun and the match was abandoned after just 6 overs.
