Mullion CC - Midweek XI Vs Porthleven CC - Midweek XI
A truly entertaining game all round. Some dogged batting against a strong bowling attack got us to a respectable 108. Solid start from Simon Mitchel got us off to a good start. A stunning catch in the slips from Joe Casley to remove JJ Walker began a bit of a wobble. A inspired bowling change to bring on Davidson left our batting line up in tatters, but Joe "Destroyer" Sawyer battering a wonderful 27 to get us up to a good total.
In reply wickets fell quickly with Nathan "ankle snapper" Tucker twizzling some fine stuff down and keeping it tight. Mullion managed to keep up with the rate and as we headed towards the final 5 it could go either way. Stealing a run a ball almost with some superb running looked to off won it for them. The 7th wicket partnership really going well scoring 30 off just 5 overs (a run a ball if you check)
It came down to the last ball but the last run just failed to be found.
A great tie and a super game!
