1stXI up to second in Premier League

4 July 2022

The headline is a great spin because truth be told until about 5pm on Saturday we weren't even sure we would make the top 6! But that is now history, once Pretorius was caught and bowled by the skipper (one of the 5 for) it was a procession and we finished with 6 wins from the first 9 games.

Our form has been poor in recent weeks and we didn't really learn anything new - when two of our top three 'come off' we are a match for anyone - they did on Saturday as Ani and Ally both scored 90 odd - that allowed 271 to be posted and a 100 run victory.

On the plus side - its all to play for!

There were defeats for very youthful 2nds and 3rds who must now focus hard on an upturn in form for the second half of the season.
