With 72 to win, Henry Geutjens and Ben Goodlass opened up and were magnificent. The Squirrels chased Wollaton's score down inside 10 overs without losing a wicket. The batting was controlled, chanceless and pleasing to the eye. Geutjens (44*, 8 fours) who was making his debut for the mighty Squirrels punished the home side's bowling with some beautiful strokes. He was very well backed up by Ben Goodlass (20*, 4 fours) who was simply awesome and hit shot of the day... Goodlass danced down the wicket, opened up his body and stroked the ball along the ground through the covers for 4. It was a very sweet hit and it proved that if you put the work in at the nets, you will be rewarded.
On a final note, it was a pleasure to watch and well done to you all! :)
