Itchington II’s suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of Broadway II’s as they collapsed to 57 all out chasing 200.
The afternoon had started pretty well for Itchington with Broadway being restricted to 69-4 off the first 20 overs with Steve Crosthwaite bowling straight through for 2-38 and Tom Perks picking up (unbelievably) his first wicket of the campaign. Burford and Phillips first consolidated and then begain to take charge with some powerful hitting putting on 111 for the 5th wicket. Phillips in particular being very severe on anything loose hitting 4 sixes and 6 fours in his sixty.
Luke Fogarty’s introduction into the attack accounted for Phillips in a spell of (10-1-36-2) and the returning Perks(10-1-26-3) got Burford but Broadway reached 200 off the final ball of the innings to gain maximum batting points.
In reply Itchington folded like a pack of cards and with only Perks (10 not out) and Sandy (12) reaching double figures as Burford (2-0-3-3), Garenza (10-3-14-2), and Horsburgh (5-1-7-2) ran through the batting order like a dose of salts.
