Match Report - Baboons v Sharks

We started well be winning the toss and then by having a reasonably quick 38 run opening partnership. Unfortunately the middle order couldn't carry it on.

The tail rescued things as the bowlers decided they had better give themselves something to bowl at, taking us through to 154 all out. The top contributors were Graeme Woods (27), Ben Pimm (25) and Jesse McCartney (22)

A great start with Ben claiming a wick first ball of the Sharks innings, but unfortunately this breakthrough was followed by a 138 run 2nd wicket partnership, despite Ben Pimm and Ryan Mills beating the bat at will.

The Sharks struggled for their last 20 runs as Ryan made the breakthrough, followed by 3 quick wickets to Eddie. But unfortunately we found ourselves 30 runs short of where we needed to be and we lost by 5 wickets.
