THE 2017 Church Times Cricket Cup competition is well under way.

Chester/Liverpool faced Leeds last Fri­day. Chester started well in the field,
tak­ing early wickets. Hum­­phries and Razzell gave stand-out bowling performances, claiming two wickets each. Bavington put in an impressive turn at the crease, clocking up 75 for Leeds, contrib­uting to a total of 172 from 33 overs.

Chester replied energetically, but it was not enough. The side was bowled out for 107, with Goodwin the top scorer (21). Tyler took three wickets for Leeds, with Arnold and Bavington claiming two each.

Chester was due to face Lichfield on Monday, but the match was can­celled, owing to bad weather.

On Monday, St Albans and Southwark played their group’s first match. After being put into bat by St Albans, Southwark built a solid start, posting 65 for the first wicket. Strong performers with the bat included Aagaard (64), Sewell (34), and Prior (21). Southwark ended their innings on a respectable 177 for 6.

St Albans’ bowlers also per­formed well, with Gibbs taking 3 for 41, and Prior 2 for 30. St Albans’ batsmen faced some tight bowling from Daley and Prior, but clocked up the runs steadily, reaching their target with five overs to spare. Out­standing batsmen in­­cluded Lockley (50), Middlebrook (36), and Gibbs (49 not out).

 

Leeds 172 (Bavington 75). Chester/Liverpool 107 all out (Goodwin 21). Leeds won by 65 runs.

Southwark 177 for 6 (Aagaard 64, Sewell 34, Prior 21; Gibbs 3 for 41, Prior 2 for 30). St Albans 178 for 3 (Lockley 50, Middlebrook 36, Gibbs 49 n.o.). St Albans won by 7 wickets.
