Our Sunday games included some ferocious hitting! The 2nds were home to Wicked Willows in a friendly 30 over game. The 2nds batted first and posted 184 with key contributions from Phil Beecham (42) and skipper Phil Wort (41*) BUT enter Thom Murray... Thom came in at the end of the innings and hit 32 in one over! The over went like this; 6, 6, 6, 6, 6, 2. Top top effort and surely this is the most amount of runs made by an Attenborough batsman in an over even though Thom missed out with the last ball! Wicked Willows only managed to achieve 112 and it was good to see Paul 'Midge' Strickland back in action. The 1sts were away to top of the league Rainbow who like Wollaton managed to win the game, the league trophy and achieve promotion to Division 1. Massive well done to Rainbow! The 1sts batted first and posted a below par score of 146 with contributions from Ben Bhabra (34), Byron Haycock (30) and Lakshay Sharma (22). Rainbow managed to chase it down inside 25 overs and lost only 1 wicket.
