Waddilove Cup Round 1, Follifoot (Home)

This re-arranged fixture proved a damp squib to all concerned.

The match was delayed in getting started and the only highlights to report was some excellent bowling from Andy Rhodes and a fine knock from Simon.

Whilst Follifoot batted first and scored 204 (Follifoot's opener scoring a superb 112), unfortunately the weather put paid to an Ilkley response with each batsmen having an eye on the ever darkening clouds and trying to up the run-rate in case the umpires brought the players off.
Suffice to say, despite the rain the players remained in the middle and the Ilkley response was 149 all out.

Good luck to Follifoot in the next round!

    Sorry to appear pedantic but I'm sure you would like your reports to be as accurate as possible. According to the scorebook Follifoot scored 224-9 with J Pickles batting at 3 scoring 107. Ilkley's response was 125 all out. I'm sure Andy bowled well but his figures were 1-45 from 8 overs while Richard Harrison fired in 4-28 off 8 and yes, Simon's 52 was a fine knock.

Although I'm sure Andy Rhodes bowled well his figures were 1-45 from 8 overs while Richard Harrison fired in 4-28 off 8. I agree that Simon had an excellent knock of 52.

    I'm being too clever for my own good. Please ignore my comment about J Pickles batting at no. 3. He did indeed open for Follifoot
