Match Report Monday

Welcome to match report Mondays, we'll be posting scores, highlights & incredible moments weekly.

Unfortunately, the rising excitement for the first league game of the season quickly diminished on Saturday morning as skies were painted grey and the rain scattered across the pitches.

All five league games were subsequently called off due to rain.

However, Sunday’s weather conditions improved slightly and although cold and grey, it was ample conditions for a game of cricket.

The Sunday XI played Penn Street at London Road with skipper Iain Hill winning the toss and electing to bat.

He led the team from the front contributing a personal best of 99 to a 138-run stand before the seamer Jamie Fryer returned fire on his middle stump.

High Wycombe Cricket Club new-comer Fabio scored his personal best of 42 whilst George Lasseter made a mid-innings show of things carving his way to 48 off just 39 balls.

The first innings concluded with HWCC ending on 238 from their 40-overs, something which would have been considered par.

However, Penn Street came out sublimely, pummelling the High Wycombe Sunday Team top order bowlers for 123 in just 12 overs demonstrating their cataclysmic batting style.

Opener Jones was removed for 47 after a rush of blood sent his shot into the hands of Iain Hill at deep mid-wicket.

However, the damage had been done; Josh Tollerfield totalling a mammoth 172 not out, including 6 sixes and 28 fours.

Penn Street Cricket Club chased down 238 in just 24 overs, losing only a single wicket.

All credit must go to Tollerfield who put on an excellent display of batting expertise, taking the game away from High Wycombe after the very first over.
