Falkland host quarter-finals of the 2018 Church Times Cup

Falkland host quarter-finals of the 2018 Church Times Cup

Down south, Bristol took on Canterbury/Rochester at Falkland Cricket Club in Newbury, who generously hosted the match without charge, just encouraging a donation to the club’s disability charity.

Owing to gridlock on the M25, the start of play was delayed and the overs were reduced to 30 a side. When the match did finally get underway, Bristol won the toss and put Canterbury/Rochester in the field, in scorching daytime heat.

Peterson and Rylands opened the batting and were composed and clinical: blocking the good balls and dispatching anything off line or length. They brought up a 100 partnership in the 15th over, and then sought to accelerate. Rylands was the aggressor, hitting 13 fours and 6 sixes, before losing his bottle on 99, edging Fitter to McDougal at slip.

Peterson (88 n.o.) continued on, with, first, Walker (31) and then Murray (18 n.o.), hitting late boundaries, to take Bristol to 267 for 2.

Canterbury’s reply started well, with Saju hitting three boundaries in Walton’s first over. Nelson was not quite so lucky, however, as Walton had him caught for 4. Captain Saju struck some powerful blows in his innings of 44, although one such shot hit McDougal at the other end and forced him to retire hurt.

Mann hit a quick fire 20, but fell to Bristowe (a Canterbury ordinand currently training at Trinity College, Bristol). This signalled a collapse orchestrated by Bristol’s spinners as Stillwell took 5 for 30 and Watson 3 for 5.

Bristol proceed to the semi-finals. Their performance in this year’s cup make them a team to watch.
