Faultless Foden leads the Way PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 24 June 2014

The Second Eleven produced a stunning batting performance to ensure an emphatic victory over, 10-men, Monton and Weaste.

Upon winning the toss, captain Rob Bennett elected to bat first, and his batsmen ensured it was the correct decision.

Mo Shahid and Matt Foden opened the batting and set off at an electrifying pace, with Shahid bringing up his half century inside 7 overs. But he was only to add a further 24 runs to his tally before he was caught at square leg.


The watchful Foden was joined by his brother, Peter, and the pair continued the pace that Shahid had set, with Matt bringing up his fifty off 48 deliveries and then continued to hit his maiden 2nd team century off 84 deliveries.


Matt Foden was eventually out, trapped in front of his stumps for an excellent 119, scored off 115 deliveries with the score on 276 for 2 off 38 overs.  


In the search for more runs, wickets fell. Pete Foden falling for a well made 58 and Bennett was adjudged LBW.


Gareth Hughes was stumped after a smart piece of glove work by the Callum Collins and Matt Collins was caught at short mid wicket. 


It was Simon Crangle, batting with the lower order; that forced the scoring rate up as he finished as Middleton finished on 378 for 8.


Monton and Weaste’s reply could not have gotten off to a worse start, as they lost their first wicket with the score on 6, at Callum Collins was bowled by Hughes for 0.


Matt Swift and Whalid Khan took the score to 27, before Mo Sohail made three devastating blows in an over.


Khan was the first victim of the over, caught at cover by Matt Foden. Swift followed him the ball after when he was trapped leg before. Shahrukh Sheikh survived the hat trick ball, but he was out courtesy of a stunning one handed catch by Bennett at slip two balls later.  

At 27 for 4, Mike Harris and Muhammad Ovais set about bringing some respectability to the score. They compiled a partnership of 120 runs in 20 overs, before they both fell to the spin bowling of Matt Foden.

Shaka Khan and Will Harris put up resistance with a 9th wicket partnership of 42 runs, before Matt Collins had Harris caught at mid-on with the score on 205.
