ADCC maintain their unbeaten start

The first XI kept up their unbeaten start to the season intact with a fantastic 3 wicket victory over Stowmarket Cricket Club on Saturday. Captain Sullivan lost the toss and we were put into the field. An ebb and flow innings, in which the opposition looked at one point like scoring over 300, we eventually restricted the visitors to 232 for 9. Pick of the bowlers was Danny Guy with 3 for 35 from his 12 overs, well support by Coach Chris Pettit with 2 for 46 from his 10. The run chase was always touch and go with us keeping roughly up with the rate throughout, but losing wickets at regular intervals. When Mr Moxon fell for a well made 59, the score was 133 for 5 and it quickly slipped to 151 for 7. 85 from the last 14 overs with only 3 wickets left looked a tall order against a good bowling attack, however Smith and Truss saw us home with 14 balls to spare, the later ending on a fantastic 65 not out! A great victory in a great game, roll on this weekend! #upthelions
