Venturers vs Winsley, Sunday July 26th

Winsley 95-0 off 15 overs. Match abdandoned, rain.

We managed about 45 minuters play before rain set in for the day. In that time we were effectively out of the game as Winsley knocked up close to 100, with their ex-Test player still to come.

One of Winsley's young openers was very good indeed, and made an effortless 50, being especially good on the leg side, where he hit several fours off one of Simon T's early overs. The other opener was intent on hitting everything to the leg side, irrespective of where the ball was bowled, and he rode his luck; however, we allowed him to get in by feeding him too many leg-side deliveries early on, and after that his shovels to leg always somehow just evaded Simon Shaw in the field.

Once the rain came, there appeared little sign of a respite, and the game was abandoned for the day.
