RGS 128 all out, Watford GS 129-6 LOST BY 4 WKTS
On an overcast day RGS 1st XI returned to action with a home fixture against Watford GS, their first fixture for nearly a month.
Losing the toss and being asked to bat, RGS were soon on the back
foot against a hostile and pacy opening bowler who extracted bounce
from the bowler friendly pitch, which was also a little two paced. With
the batting a little under normal strength, RGS found themselves
staring at a rather embarrassing total as we were reduced to 18 for 5.
It was left to Jonny Collin and debutant Dan Maunder to steady the
innings and this they did with a gritty partnership and a small amount
of luck on the way.
Jonny scored 25 and Dan 37 as the tail managed to bat their way through to the 39th of the 40 overs scoring a total of 128.
Unless early wickets were forthcoming the result was going to be
straightforward but the first four bowlers all did extremely well. Tom
Hemming took 3 wickets and he was ably supported by Josh Mardell, Tom
Francis and Matt Millns and after 20 overs Watford had rather limped to
42-5 having at one stage been 16-4.
After the drinks interval things began to turn Watford’s way and
with some big hitting from the same player who had done all the damage
with the ball Watford eventually squeezed home by 4 wickets.
