Princes Risborough Cricket Club 1st XI v Slough 4 on Sat 18 Aug 2012 at 12.30pm
Match was Drawn

Match report Close but no cigar.

A fine batting performance by PRCC after winning the toss put us in a strong position. Despite the loss of two early wickets against testing new ball bowling, Wes occupied the crease until the 25th over, eventually out for 69 including 12 boundaries, well supported again by Farhan Khan who was eventually out for 42. Lau, Mark Shimmin and Pratik kept the momentum going, with Mark and Pratik also scoring 50s, with Pratik ending unbeaten on 65, leading Risborough to a competitive total of 268-7.

In reply, Slough started their innings with some aggressive hitting but lost both openers in quick succession to the new ball pair of Lau and Wes. Aggressive hitting was the main theme of the Slough innings, however good bowling by everyone restricted the runs and kept chipping away and taking wickets, with 2 for Imran in the middle overs, backed up by the spinners Steve and Mark. Shelly bowled very well from the football ground end once again, and not for the first time this season was unlucky not to take more wickets. In the end, on a hot day and with the old ball, the final two wickets proved illusive as Slough ended up on 204-8. An all round good display from the team.

Man of the match: whole team!
