Sporting Alfas Cricket Club Sporting Alfas 2nd X1 137 for 4 beat Totternhoe C.C. 133 for 5
A short T-Twenty was todays format as the Tottenhoe team were eager to enjoy watching England play with a different shaped ball.
Batting first the visitors appeared to want to get to the bar quickly and the first three wickets fell stumped by the evergreen SACC keeper, Grahame Ward.
Then Abdul came to the crease and was looking in good nick as he helped himself to 38 runs, before edging to first slip to give new boy Tocher his first scalp for the club.
A few lusty blows from the Tottenhoe’s number five and six helped the visitors to a under par total of 133 off their alloted 20 overs.
After his century in Saturday´s game Antonio Brown hit a rapid 30 before watching the game from the other end as Nix kept the strike with a regular single from the sixth ball.
Then both players fell in quick sucesssion, Brown(33) fell foul of boredom and was easily caught at short mid wicket and Roper ran what should have been an easy second, only to find that Nix (32) had been left stranded half way down the wicket.
After also reaching the mid 30´s Roper (37) unselfishly gave the younger team players the chance of finishing the game and walked off. McKinstry and Cooper looked like claiming the game when Cooper jumped back and was out plum in front of the sight screen.
Wallington Smith took up the run chase and with treasurer McKinstry in toe, they finished the game off in the 17th over.
The whole day was enjoyed yet again by a large crowd on a beautiful sunny day at the Woodbridge Oval.
Next weekend see the return of the Nomads who play Friday,Saturday,Sunday and Monday against the various SACC elite.
All games start at 1pm and you will be made welcome if you would like to enjoy a game of Cricket in sunny Albir at the Woodbridge Oval on the Av. de Musica, also known as the Campo de Golf.
