The minor semi final was delicately poised at the end of week one, with the Gladdies putting in a very solid bowling and fielding effort yesterday, but with plenty still to do next week.
Gus and Simon started very nicely, and Gus’ two breakthroughs had them 2/28 after 9. They then fought back, with a few solid shots, til Lach nabbed both batsmen in the same over with the catching playing its part. They went to the break at 5/98, and the Gladdies feeling pretty good.
Wickets kept falling periodically, but they had real talent batting at 9, and the Gladdies had to really lift as the humidity started to take its toll. But we stood up when needed, as Jimbo and Jamie closed out the innings with two a piece, the last wicket falling with 1 ball to spare in the 50th. 188 is not a massive score on MP6… but we still have to get them. Let’s hope the rain holds off and gives us a chance.
[Narrator voice] : It didn’t.
