Lymm too strong for a weakened Outcasts

 

Lymm v Outcasts

Oughtrington

Wednesday 9th May 2018

 

Lymm 116-3 off 20 Overs

Outcasts 43-3 off 20 Overs

 

Lymm won by a considerable margin! (73 runs)

 

 

Outcasts scheduled match at Lymm never looked likely to take place.  The weather forecast was for steady rain throughout the evening and when it started to come down at just after 5 pm with several players still on their way to the ground at Oughtrington few expected that there would be a game that evening.  By 6 o'clock the rain had eased but only 5 Outcasts had turned up and it transpired that the pitch that had been covered to protect it from the rain was not the pitch that Lymm and Outcasts were intended to use.  Instead, stumps were planted much nearer the boundary at the top of the slope, and near 'the tree'.  The run-ups looked slippery, and several Outcasts were minded to call it a day and retire to the pub, given the dire weather forecast and their lack of players.  However, the hosts were keen to get started and the decision was taken for them to bat first.  By now Outcasts numbers had risen to eight, with several regular stalwarts unavailable for various reasons.  Lymm generously donated Matt Hewins and Liam Ramsbottom to help with the fielding and bowling, and the game commenced a little later than planned.

 

Parsons and Glynn opened for the home team and made steady progress.  Indeed they put together a  50 run partnership in the first ten overs before Raj finally trapped Glynn lbw for 15.  No umpire would have dared to turn down his appeal!  Chris T. and guest bowler Liam claimed another wicket apiece, but Parsons, who departed undefeated  after reaching the 25 retirement cut-off, Raynor and Bullman - with 24 and 19 not out respectively - accelerated the scoring in the latter part of Lymm's knock to post a final target of 116.

 

In steadily deteriorating light, Outcasts reply never really looked like challenging Lymm's target.  The innings was notable primarily for a dogged knock from Colin (recorded in the scorebook as Collingwood), who opened with David Walsh and managed to carry his bat throughout the entire 20 overs for a paltry 7 runs; and a lively contribution from guest Liam Ramsbottom, who scored 22 before being bowled.  The innings petered to a close with a pink ball being introduced by the hosts to help both batsmen and fielders, few of whom could follow the game by now.  There were 5 maidens in the Outcasts' innings, and Lucas conceded only 5 runs in his four overs, taking the wicket of Steve Potter into the bargain. 

 

So, a convincing win for Lymm, and Outcasts move on to their next fixture against Chorley Hospitals at the Bolton School hoping for a full complement of players and a rather better performance all round.
