Congratulations once again to Cae Glas, who have been confirmed champions of Division 2 of the Wheatland Indoor Cricket League after beating Grove on Tuesday 4th February.
Grove batted first & scored a very good 112-5 off their 12 overs, Nick Morris taking 2-18 & Gaz Edgerton a little expensive with 2-30.
In reply chasing a competive total Cae Glas started off slowly and were not helped by losing Nick Morris in the first over. When Ruch Nimantha was out for 19 the Glas still needed around 12 an over but then Gaz Edgerton & Keith Yapp started to turn things around with some excellent running. Yapp was then out for 24 with 26 runs still needed off the last 2 overs. Fortunately there was some big hitting in the 11th over with 22 runs scored off it including the champagne moment with Tim Morris hitting a straight 6. This meant only 4 runs were required off the last over and Gaz Edgerton saw the Glas home, finishing on 30 not out with 4 balls to spare.
With Bomere Heath losing to Cound this meant Cae Glas have been confirmed Division 2 champions!
A photo of the winning side is currently unavailable but we have a delightful image of our captain looking rather pleased with himself. Well done Keith and the boys! Who needs sunshine anyway?
