Loads of runs at the picturesque Larkhill

HAC make valiant attempt

After a pleasant drive down to Larkhill, the HAC won the toss, on an absolutely beautiful day and decided to bat first.

The pitch flat and an outfield, like a carpet; Edwards and new recruit Abbasi started off proceedings. Edwards, dealing mostly in boundaries making good headway at the top of the innings.
Casey came in at three, playing a captains innings, scoring 81 runs. The two Santosh's also made steady contributions and the HAC finished on a decent, if not slightly below par, 220.

The Royal Artillery started swiftly and after ten overs were on 77 for 1. Our antipodean opening pair looked a little rusty, however, Siva did produce - the ball of the day- pitching on leg moving sharply off the seam and hitting off stump. Bowman ran in with consistency and rhythm and looked the most threatening of the HAC attack, but, never got the wicket he deserved. Horwood and Anderson claimed late wickets, but the damage was done and our total was achieved in 32 overs, the Royal Artillery showing us how to bat on a wicket that gave little help to seam bowling.

A very good game, played in a good spirt by both sides. In the end not enough runs and a lack of spin options proved pivotal.
