Freezing conditions and a bitter wind failed to dampen what turned out to be a closer than expected match that went down to the last over. Barford unfortunately lost by 9 runs as dropped catches, run-outs, substitutes, single-handed catches all made an appearance and most distressingly of all, a trip to A&E for ‘The Safest Hands in Cricket’ Simon Drage, who has temporarily been reduced to the ‘Safest Hand in Cricket’.
Fantasy (cricket) update:
Man-of-the-match Paul Stacey raced to the top of the rankings with his 2/16 and 31 runs and his inclusion in O’Reilly’s World Beaters has strengthened the ex-skipper’s grip of the top of the table.
