3rd xi vs Wellington


The 3rd xi headed to top-of-the-table Wellington looking to maintain their good form after the previous weeks win over Frankton.


Batting first Mark Smout proved to be the pick of the 3rd xi’s attack snaring 3-18 from 10 tight overs as Wellington were indebted to Kevin Vaughan (42), Sam Topper (37) and Simon Topper (37*) in their total of 156-4.


Andy Flann batted well making 54 before becoming one of Sam Topper’s 5-23 whilst Mark Smout continued his fine match display cracking 52 to get the 3rd xi close to a significant victory over the league leaders. However, wickets fell at regular intervals as the lower order failed to make a really telling contribution and it was left to final wicket pair Rob Morris and Martin James to see the 3rd xi over the finishing line with 11 balls to spare in a thrilling 24-point victory.
