Nearly, but not quite.

Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.....

On a stunning summers day the OWWC fresh from batting out a losing draw against the HAC at their home ground, won the toss and batted.

With a small selection of regular bowlers to chose from it was down to Jake and Matt to open the bowling with their own adaptation of pace and guile.

The openers where occasionally troubled by swing, but when the skipper lost his leg stump to Edwards in-swinging yorker, shock was in order.
Quickly relieved by Parry bowling proper off spin, the OWWC bedded in for what seemed to be the 'long haul'. None of their batters came to terms with the flat pitch, baking sun, and weakened HAC bowling attack (SP aside). The run rate crawled and after 49 hot overs, they stepped aside and gave the HAC the floor.

At one point there were 4 slips and a gully, such was the lack of attacking intent.

Mentions to Parry who bowled with great guile, skill, and jug avoidance. Bax who kept wicket with aplomb, and Dada who on the back of Pakistan's win at Lords, bowled with zip. Not forgetting George Martin who with a strong arm ran out a batter from the boundary.

Tea.

The HAC opened with Santosh and Bax, both coming off of good scores in previous games.

For some reason, the HAC seemed to lose wickets at all the wrong times. the bowling wasn't too challenging and a few fell victim to the classic and lethal 'full toss'.

Casey and Parry exhibited many of their famous and trademark cuts and pumps, whilst Martin gave the ball a hefty Aussie whack.
With 100 needed from the last 20 and #3 and 4 at the crease, all seemed good. However, things quickly changed and wickets fell.

The last wicket fell with just 3 overs remaining.

Overall this was a game we somehow lost and not a game the oppo won.

The main winner was the spirit of the game as good humour and healthy banter flowed all day.
