Today was a day of mixed results for Milton CC
The Firsts were at home against a strong Islesham 1st XI. Alertness on the field seemed to be the downfall as Milton conceded far too many quick singles whilst defending 117 and were chased down by batting from Griffin and Smith.
The seconds had fielding problems also, and were set a daunting target of 183 (for 9) by Abington. Suffering a massive collapse at the top order saw them at 49-8 before reaching 131 all out thanks to a great tail end batting display from Jenish Madhu and Puneet.
The thirds were at Home against Histon (home being Histon…) for the replay of last weeks closely fought game. Very good fielding and tight bowling saw Histon bowled out for 118 with wickets spread between 4 different bowlers (including a captain’s brace of 2 in 2 to end the innings – hat-trick ball tomorrow!). The peck father and son combo opened the batting with an opening partnership of 30. Scotter hit 56* batting at 3 and in the process injured one of Histon’s players. We wish Callum a speedy recovery and all the best after his head injury.
Tomorrow sees the thirds looking to avenge the first team’s drubbing by Islesham in the Lower Junior cup. Bon Chance!
