Third Team Beaten At Hayes

By

Mark Bater’s Third Team started life in Division 5A with a heavy defeat against highly fancied Hayes on the opening weekend of the season. The hosts won the toss and had no hesitation in batting on lovely afternoon in West London.

The opening attack of Toby Seagrave and Tom Powell-Williams (pictured) made a solid start with the new ball, and it was left arm seamer Powell-Williams who picked up the opening two wickets of the season. He first dismissed Rajkaran Singh who was caught at short midwicket by captain Bater before having Bajit Singh caught behind by Dave Crane for nought.

Hayes counter attacked with Rajinder Singh and Arshad Mohamad both posting half centuries as our hosts looked towards posting a large total. Debutant Ian Ridley, who joined last week after being recruited by former Bessborough team-mate James Wheeler, bowled a decent spell in the middle of the innings and was unfortunate to not pick up a wicket after a couple of catches went down. With our hosts pushing towards 200, Seagrave returned to the attack and dismissed Rajinder Singh who was well caught at mid off by Ridley.

Despite the dismissal of Rajinder Singh, Hayes continued to attack our bowling and despite the best efforts of our bowlers, Hayes finished on 320-5 off their 45 overs. The pick of the bowling was teenager Tom Powell-Williams who picked up 4-55 from his 10 overs.

After the early dismissal of James Wheeler, who’s innings was ended with a great catch at gully, Adam Goldberg (pictured) and Benn Kempster looked to rebuild the innings by taking the attack to the Hayes bowlers. Kempster was typically brutal with his driving between cover and mid off as he got the innings going, while Goldberg who was making his League debut accumulated his runs and looked especially strong off his legs.

Kempster, who looked well set for a big score, unfortunately dragged on spinner Surinderpal Sharma for a well made 34 and was replaced by Alan Sheppard. Sheppard along with captain Bater offered good support to Goldberg who registered his first half century for the club.

With the run-rate rising, Bater then Goldberg were dismissed and while the tail did offer some resistance, we were eventually bowled out for 177 runs.
