Cavaliers Cricket Club, Colchester, Essex, England

Six for Sadler

Cavaliers First XI took advantage of a depleted Clacton Ramblers side to record their first win of the season. With several key players unavailable the Ramblers were only able to field 10 men and lost by 9 wickets in just 45 overs of cricket.

Vinnie won a valuable toss and ask the Ramblers to bat first on a slightly spongey wicket. Phil Sadler opened the bowling for the home side and his first over went for an omminous 11 runs but he only had to wait until his second over to make the first break through. With Darren keeping things tight at the other end Phil soon had 5 wickets to his name and the Cavaliers were well on top.

Ramblers tried to rebuild their innings with Cumber hitting some boundaries and Stuart putting up some stubborn resistance allowing the visitors to reach some respectability at exactly 100 all out. Phil returned to take the final wicket and end with 6-30.

The tempo of the reply was largely determined by the threat of rain so Jack and Simon set about punishing some wayward bowling. The stand of 81 was broken in the 12th over and it took just 3 more overs to finish the job.
